High Frequency Training Squat Day 14 Week 3
85% 335X3X3, 1X3
Aiming for 5 sets of 3 reps but something felt off today. I’m not too worried however but it was a bit upsetting because something always seems to be wrong with my squats.
My sticking point has been about midway out of the hole and it’s been a great annoyance. On top of that, my hips tighten up really bad.
Instead of grinding them out I decided to just take it easy and figure out what could possibly be wrong because it should not be that hard.
I’m beginning to think that with the thinner bar I have been placing it too high which pitches me forward. This is opposite to when I use the thicker 55lb bar that naturally slides lower on my back. I’ll have to play around with that but for now I’ll take it easy and relax.
Today concludes my last day of class a student at the University of Illinois and most likely my last class for the rest of my life.
I am truly happy with the road I have chosen for myself in pursuing a career in Recreation and Sport Management. Unlike some of my other peers, I can honestly say that I am happy to have chosen a path that I can focus all of my passion towards to beyond the pursuit of a piece of paper.
I am confident in my abilities as not only a student, but as a future professional and I know I WILL find success in the future wherever that road may be. Although this is the last day of my official education, I’d argue it’s just the beginning of a lifetime full of learning.
