I prefer to work out early in the a.m. as well. I'm at the gym at 5am these days. It rotates with my work schedule though.

Yea I can understand that. I think my issue with heavy deads is the initial lift. Once I get it up I'm ok. That's why I've been working my hams a lot

I squat 1-2x a week. Deadlifts are once a week. I usually do 3 reps of romanian DL's at a pretty good weight, then 2 sets of stiff leg - lighter weight and more reps.

If I was going as heavy as I do for deadlifts with my squats, once a week would be more than enough!


no reason you cant squat more. everyone should vary their workouts anyway.

i clean 3-4 times a week. ill squat heavy one day and maybe more of a metabolic lighter squat the next.

if you cant squat twice a week your recovery time must be ridiculous and you need to bring up the intensity on your workouts.

and before anyone says anything. i hit front squats for 275x4x3 on monday and did fran on wednesday and was fine.

most people dont realize what their bodies are capable of. UP THE INTENSITY.

crazy imo

i do rack deads personally, takes my legs out of it and i can focus more on them squatting
no offense to you or anything, but rack dealifts are pretty fuking retarded. just my opinion. seems like people do it to show how big their d1ck is. not sure if someone thinks they are getting a workout from pulling 4 inches up.

go do goodmornings if you want to get a lower back workout.

FRAN sucks! Good thing I'm not a Crossfitter. Where are your pics BreakMyWallet?

P.S. I want to go dead lift too. Sucks that I have to wait until Monday.

I just came off two months of squats mon/wed/fri 5x5, heavy (for me).

My recovery time was fine, Squats have never seemed to kill my mobility unless I haven't done them in a few weeks.

I agree with not knowing what you are capable of, I almost require a spotter because with the additional "safety net" I go for heavier weights than I am used to and surprise myself.

With squats though my form gets real shaky quick after 210 lbs. I can feel it even still at 210 in my lower back which scares me... I definitely think its a balance/stabilizer muscle issue, my back starts to go forward.

I haven't seen them. I always become curious about how the resident H&F contributers are built.

i dont think its a balance or stabalizer issue. its a weak core issue.

I'd be worried about it smacking my spine on the way down personally, having never had to do it

Thats highly likely as well, without a doubt my core is undeveloped compared to rest of body. Knowing this I've been working on training it better/more often.

Dropping the weight in a corporate gym (..24HR, etc.) will likely result in your membership being terminated. When I was a trainer there, we'd suspend memberships after giving a warning. You're a rebel aren't you BMW? LOL!

do it in a rack and just lower yourself on the bars.

I'll be squatting tomorrow again. 210x5x3. The heaviest I've done in a while and only with one day rest between my last squat day. I feel fine now though being that I squatted last night. I'm in love with my weight belt. I feel so good using it on my heavy sets.

Lowering is one thing.....dropping is another. We used to have guys clean & jerk, then drop the weight. Or they'd snatch, and then drop the weight. It was super annoying because those plates aren't meant to be dropped like that, and it would damage them over time.

Your 24 was/is far more lenient than ours.
