The Begining of Squat Hell

The first 4 weeks of this training cycle we are using a condensed version of the 6 week Russian squat pyramid we used before.  This time we are adding chains on the work sets so that at the end of the 4 weeks we will be using 110-115% of our brief max up top.
415 X 8
505 X 6
585 X 5
675 X 5
735 and 2 chains per side X 5.  This almost killed me.  I got all 5, but it was ugly and felt terrible.  We had considered adjusting the percentages a bit to account for the chains, but decided to try it and see what happened.  What happened was we realized real fast we should go down about 5 % on the percentages when we used chain.
685 and 2 chains per side X 2 sets of 5
685 X 5
595 X 6
505 X 8

Reverse Hyper: 2 sets of 15 with 600#.

Absolutely smashed.  It will be a 4 week battle the first wave of this cycle, but should be great for our conditioning if we survive.

Thinking of installing the high seater handicap toilets in my house....
