squattyYou may recall a couple weeks ago I squatted with another gym friend of mine where I did a total of 30 reps at 185 pounds.  They were broken into sets of 8,8,8,6.  That last set was supposed to be another 8 but I bailed.  Today I wanted to succeed where I failed before.

I was squatting solo this time which meant I perhaps had more rest between sets than two weeks ago.  Regardless that last set of 8 was tough.  I had long pauses between reps 31 and 32 to catch my breath.  I made sure my last rep was all the way down and up instead of the third or half squatting that is so common at my gym.  I am beat but my legs will thank me in the future, hopefully.
