Eric Lilliebridge 454kgs/1,001lbs x 1 x 2 Raw Squat w/ wraps PR @ 300lbsSamuel Stebbins
I’m currently 5 weeks out from GPA Worlds. For this training session, I had planned to try doing a PR for a double with around 980-990lbs. I decided that I wanted to try more because I was feeling good warming up and went to 1,001lbs instead. On my first set, the first rep felt really good, I tried for a 2nd rep but I just couldn’t get in a good breath between the reps and it caused me to get out of form and round over mid way through it. I was pissed off because I knew I had the strength to do it for a double, I just made a little mistake and got loose for a split second and my form went to shit on the 2nd attempted rep. I rested for about 15 mins after and took the same weight again for another single so that I got in 2 good reps with 1,001lbs. Overall I was still happy with this training session considering I didn’t plan try anywhere near this until the meet. I still have one more heavy squat session left in a couple weeks. My meet prep training will be done in a few weeks and then I will be de loading and resting until the meet.
