Today I was supposed to do 3 sets of 210 on squats... Went through some warmup stuff and some stretching. Hit my warmup sets, and thought to myself.. "I just don't see doing 3 sets of squats today"...
Instead, decided to see what my 1RM squat was.
225 x 1... easy (know I can do that anyway)
245 x 1... easy
275 x 1... got it. Slowed down in the middle of the lift, but didn't come to a stop. Bottom and top felt good.
300 x 0... felt pretty good at lift off. Decent was slow and felt good. Got about 2-3 inches up from the bottom and stalled. Down to the pins.
300 x 0, try 2... lifted off the rack, stepped back and got into position. Right heel felt funny inside shoe, so fidgeted foot around to get it right. Started decent... got maybe 2 inches or so into it and right foot/heel still didn't feel right. Went back up and racked it.
There it is. Got 275. Might have been able to power out 285, but that is a guess. Just not strong enough yet for 300 (which is almost 1.5x BW). Not bad, about what I expected.
