Technically this is a 'good form' Rep PR, as I now believe I haven't done a squat with good form after passing 195# on Stronglifts. This was probably my first ever set of perfect form squats over 195.Bulgarian Split Squats
I had some sort of freudian slip and typed in "Bulgarian Split Splats" at first. ha ha.
Just right side:
Skater squats (attempted) like in this article's video: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_art ... g_training
Right leg only, body weight, 5 reps
In short, my right leg is completely avoiding any work. I realized during the Bulgarians that for the right leg I was massively cheating and forcing the load onto the left foot (which, when your foot is upside down, results in one hell of a cramp fast). Even at body weight I could not force myself to stop doing that. That's why I finally tried the skater squats.Pause Squats
Down to just above parallel, raise 3-4 inches, pauses to count of 4, complete rep.
115 x 5 x 5
These were a lot harder 1 week ago at this weight when I did them for the first time, with shaking legs and extreme effort to finish. Today no leg shaking at all, even after the Bulgarians.
