^ repeatable sub-max jumps are higher and easier. i dont go for max jumps without some sort of squat delaod.  its either the low intensity 18/24" DJ, or the added leg mass, or both..  i can grab rim with both hands consistently and with less effort.

if i need to really put effort in grabbing rim with 2 hands and miss it for a couple of attempts - thats the sign i look for that im not explosive. so far i can always grab rim even on first rep.. so im happy with my jumps. id say repeatable 34-36" while doing 405s.

Yeah it will be interesting on how you react to an eventual deload... it could work either as a gain or actually a loss in power (according to Pfaff).

^ yes. IMO, i jump a lot better 1-2days from a squat workout as long as its not one of those 40+ with 6-8reps. moderate to high intensity DJs with a good workout plan should really work well for me while in a strength maintenance(1-2reps).

Squats
[135,185,225 x6][275,325 x4][365x2][385,405 x1]
- 405 1x1

* empty BW 194.5lbs. maintaining 194.5lb consistently now. the lifts are easy today. i had saturday off and that extra day of rest made a difference. i could have gone for my work sets of 4reps but getting to the gym at 8am without a strong pre-workout breakfast/dinner is not a good idea.
* next workout is on tuesday. skipped jumps today. want to get 425x2-4 soon and just focus on jumps after that.

why not rotate based on fatigue, instead of a 7 day period? A few of these sessions lately, you rest one extra day and come back very strong.. should just rotate through without woring about wed/sun etc.

?

i can only workout between sun-wed because i work the other half of the week. im sure my muscles are well recovered after 4 days of rest specially with the sub 20rep routines with only 4 reps/set. the sundays workout is a warmup session. i prefer to over rest than to over train. :P

Squats
[185,225 x6][275x4][325x2][365,385,405 x1]
- 405 4x2
- 365 6x8 (non-paused)

* cut down a bit on the warm up reps. legs firing good from sundays sets. saved the reps for the work sets.
* 405 2nd set rep 4 was a goodmorning squat. legs feel strong. rep 1-2 a 7/10 lift. rep 3 an 8.5/10. rep 4 a 9/10. no chance of rep 5. lowerback will collapse forward. legs where pushing good on rep 4 but the torso is not rigid anymore. decided to stop with 405s. save the lowerback unneeded beating. will use workout for something else that IMO will be more productive - will go for volume/tonnage. a 405 set3 3-4 reps would have been possible but it would be ugly and really draining.
* decided not to go with back up paused reps because those are lowerback intensive also.
* 365 rep 1-4 a 7/10. rep 5 a 7.5/10. rep 6 an 8.5/10. rep 7-8 possible but most likely compromise upright torso. 365 was easy. could have gone for 8 reps but might not get as much tonnage if i did it. need to build up tolerance for high volume gradually too.
* ate 3-4 cups (per serving) of whey 3 times within the 365 sets.  i probably killed 1/3 of the tub in that workout. have work tomorrow. cannot be immobile. took my time between sets. some are 22-24mins and climbed to 28-32mins because i was not feeling it yet. after 8sets without a hint of leg cramps, i could have made 10-12 sets. didn't have enough time to do all that.  :P

4cups whey + as little water so i dont get full =




3-4 cups of that feeds these:




heres me camping at the gym for half a day completing my squat marathon.. main gym closed for holiday. went to back up gym.

Wtf? up to 32min rest between the squat sets? That doesn't make ANY sense to me haha... your workouts have to take like 3-4 hours, what do you do in between sets, just hanging around in the gym?  :P Very strong squats and quads though!

MIGHT WANNA STEP UR VMO GAME UP KINGFISH.

SINCERELY,

VMO JESUS.






ya man i love drinking protein shake in between squat sets, i only down bits of one shake not like what you did, but it REALLY helps compared to when I don't do it.. i calm down quicker, recovery faster, and feel less jittery.

32min rest between sets is basically 4 workouts.. he did 4 workouts etc.

seriously, 30+min rest is considered another workout, nothing wrong with it either lol..

peace

I'd puke it out. For example, I once drank a glass of protein powder like 1 and a half hours before my workout. Guess what? When I squatted 120x5, I just felt it coming up my throat (literally). It just stopped right before going out (I was wearing a belt by the way).

maybe you should try drinking protein prior to lifting (hour before), more often.. you just weren't used to it.. just because you had a bad encounter the first time doesn't mean it'll always be like that, your "gut" will adapt.

I don't think so... it's not a matter of digestion, it's a matter of liquid being in a pressed stomach that goes up my throat...
