Cambered bar, my most hated bar, box squats (video)

Relentless Detroit proved to be a decent meet, but in all reality, it was a tune-up meet for Relentless Minnesota. I just spent the last 7-8 weeks really pushing some of my raw work on all 3 lifts. Strategically working on some weak points, both muscularly and technically. Getting back in my gear mid-January and will be placing that in according to the calendar to have enough skill work in the gear before the meet. My plan is to compete at Relentless Minnesota March 28th in the 123# weight class. Questions about my training, diet, coaching, clients, etc... I will always answer! Send me a question HERE!

I did heavy max effort deadlifts last week, so this week it's squats. Opted for my most hated bar, the giant cambered bar. I hate that thing. I'm terrible at it. Which I know is why I need to do it more.

Cambered Bar Box Squats - this bar weights like 70 pounds. I don't count the extra weight into my bar weight. I pretend it's still 45 pounds.

95x5
115x5
135x5
155x3
175x2
195x1
210x1
225x1
235x1

As you can see it was a pretty solid rep. But I knew I probably didn't have another 15 pounds in me. So I cut it there.
