Under Tension

Out in the garage this morning to squat before golf. Also wanted to test out the percentages before classes made their attempts.

Pause Back Squats

3 seconds in the hole

  • 6×45#
  • 6×135#
  • 3×185#
  • 3×225#
  • 3×245#
  • 3×265#
  • 3×285#
  • 3×295#

We had 50-60-65-70-75% set after originally having the last 3 sets at 70-75-80. I made our picked percentages so added 10# more (78%) for a final attempt. Made it but that was definitely my limit for the day, so glad we didn’t go with 80%.

Those were some legit pauses, as far as timing if I do say so myself. 🙂 None of that bounce shit to get out of the hole either. 😉

Was a good warm-up before going golfing; walked 18 holes. Chiro appointment in the evening and then went over to the gym.


  • Bottom Squat Hold
  • Squat Clean
    • 5×45#
    • 5×115#



  • Squat Clean (135#)
  • Bar-facing Burpee

On April 18th I used 115# for this same thing and it took 5:25. I did break the 8 into 5-3 that day. Today I went unbroken every round with the heavier weight and finished in 5:13. Burpees slowed me down again.

  • 50 GHD Sit-ups
  • 2 mile Run
  • 50 GHD Sit-ups

Not fun. I averaged about a 9:25 pace. Finished everything in 25:17. I was not feeling good afterwards. A lot of time out in the sun today since I got to the course early to hit some balls. Having McDonald’s about an hour before getting to the gym didn’t help either.
