Squat day. Another day to do work on those legs. My strategy is to strengthen my lower body remarkably. Hopefully my pants will fit in the future as well =) Today I had to rush because we were about to go for a long dinner with a bunch of colleagues so I had 45min to do my training. That was a time slot craving for squats.
Every minute on the minute, 2 reps back squat @ ascending ladder
Starting at @ 100kg, I did 2 reps on the first 2 minutes, then add 5kg after each 2min, continued this scheme up to 130kg. So there were 2x2 reps for each weight, for a total of 14minutes of work and a total of 28 reps. Got to say those last reps on the 125 / 130kg started to feel heavy. Heavy enough but still without a doubt of coming up. At those weights the time started to become an issue. It wasn't easy to start squatting heavy without just a short recovery. I still remained in the tim frame as I had planned. My original plan was to hit 130kg so I didn't add any more weights.
Plus, I had to run after the squats were done. It was time to enjoy a delicious cuisine on one of the classiest restaurants in Helsinki. We hit it to one of celebrity chef Tom Björck's restaurants - Gaijin - and I must say the food was incredible! We took a 7 course menu, Asian food, made from the best ingredients. Hard to describe the fireworks of flavors in my mouth. Simply beautiful.
|Delicious dessert. Don't ask me what it was, no idea, but it was spectacular!|
