5 weeks out, Day 7, squats

8 workouts in 7 days felt like a much easier workload than 8 workouts over 5 days which isn't really surprising.  If I knew I had the schedule flexibility to get to the gym every day, I think spreading everything out over 7 days is a very doable loading scheme. I didn't even remember than I had deadlifted yesterday until I was halfway through my squat work sets this afternoon.

So far with almost 8 weeks into a higher frequency training schedule, my joints feel good and I have only needed to use ibuprofen once.  At least this early in the process, I'll take that as a good sign that the workload isn't too much, too soon.  Of course the real test will be if my Wilks score goes up at my next meet.

Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x5, low bar, 225x5, add belt, 295x3, 345x3, add wrist wraps, 385x5, 385x5, 385x5, 385x5

Seated cable row:  140x10, 150x10, 150x8
