Yesssss, finally, i was waiting for this but didn't want to spam the journal, as i was sure you have it in mind all the time. Amazing to be back up there man, what a damn beast and motivation you are!!!!!!

 :headbang:

thanks. this time around, i got the paused 475 at a no-very-fat 206-208lb. i was 210+ before.  the backoff 405x2-3s are paying off.

probably need to do a lot of 2-3 paused reps on 435 if i were to have a chance at 495.

ya the hip stuff always freaks me out too. like you said, can't really get to it. that alone makes it more scary, because it can feel more like a joint issue.

* im due for a straight 5+hr daytime sleep soon. im better off just working and sticking with my routine. this feels weird. things were out of my control. had to adjust last week and the following week.

afternoon

* big difference when i sleep well. 475 top and another 405x5. will add more 405x5s but not on back to back workouts so i dont burn out. this is one of the strongest squat sessions i had. not the most difficult. i spent so much energy and will power to get 385 8x6 sets when i was younger and more reckless. lol

has your stance gotten even closer or is it just the angle?
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

Def beastin' with that squat, it looked comfortable.

I was gonna mention the same thing too. Your feet are quite narrower than shoulder width, probably hip width. is it problematic for the hips if you do wider stance.

just the angle. i try to do shoulder width or less. if i go wider, i get lower and wreck my lower back.

* using the 1RM calculators, 405x7=486, 405x8=503. if i can daily a 405x5 without a sticking point on the 5th rep, im most likely thick enough to peak to a 405x7-8 reps. my plan is to try 495x1 when im thick for daily 405x7s. or i just fukit and try later. the 475 this morning was easy.
