Squats with a Side of Yoke

Today was by far the worst squat session in a long time. I fell forward. FORWARD. I don't mess up squatting, it's the thing I can do without thinking. I started thinking about it today and it sucked.


But then I stood up and walked 435# in a simulated Yoke walk "start," so it's all good.

A1. Squat

2 x 8 x 135#
5 x 185#
3 x 225#
2 x 275#
1 x 325# felt a bit hard
0 x 345# fell forward. I never do that. argh.
2 x 1 x 315# first one wasn't deep enough, I finally stopped thinking on the second one and did fine


Yeah. Not a great day, considering I was planning on 325/350/375 for singles.


B1. SSB 1/4 Squats

8 x 85#
5 x 175#
3 x 265#
2 x 315#


At this point Jess had the idea that I should try simulating starting a Yoke walk, so I shifted to that.


C1. Yoke Walk Simulated Starts

315#
365#
405#
435#

I walked about 3 feet max, from the back to the front of the rack. I think I had 500# in me, but I really need to do a full walk. I need a real yoke... anyone wanna send me one for free?


Overall, the session redeemed itself. I wanted to do more but it was coming on 2 hours and I was beat down. I'll do the rest tomorrow.
