Re: 20 Rep Squats - My (ugly) 315x20 inside

Jacob I forgot to ask you something. What did Jesus say do you after the 19th rep?

That was cool. Love the walk back to the camera after that set. LOL
I can feel your pain.
My guess is that you are a max rep 475 Squat.

That's how you know it was 315. There's no looking cool after 315x20. Good job.

It was about that point that I realized the bar had slipped so much that it was below the racks, and I knew racking it was gonna be tough. Hence the fugly last rep! I was trying to get the bar back up in position, but had already screwed with my grip a couple times and nearly dropped it...(you can imagine the excuses running through my head at the time...don't listen to 'em!)

Thanks for the compliments guys, didn't expect it! I really appreciate the kind words, but my main goal is to get some of you out there doing some 20RM squats of your own. It's a great experience. Kinda like getting hit by a train and walking away.

As for my 1RM, I hit 425 about a month ago, and I'm shooting for 455 next time I "max out." I'm hoping to hit 500 next year, while reducing my bodyweight to about 215-225. Then I have to work on my other lifts, as they're all quite a bit behind where they should be. It never ends!

Man, that was a great effort. I have to admit, though I did laugh to myself on that last rep. You really gutted it out and got er dun. I am just aspiring to hit a 315 x 1 !! Next month I may give 225 a try for 20 reps although I think that might crush me! Good work.

Re: 20 Rep Squats - My (ugly) 315x20 inside

Nice work! I bet you could do 325 next week and 335 the week after.

I've never done a max set of 20. I have done:

A) 3X15@315 (13 or 14 years ago, probably questionable depth)

B) one of my biggest mental efforts of my life: 10X10@265 w/90 sec rest between sets (five or six years ago) I will never do this one again.

Re: 20 Rep Squats - My (ugly) 315x20 inside

Dude thats awesome....iv done 240lbs for 22 reps before, but it wasnt nice lol. So 315 is freaky styleeee!!

You ona a 20 rep squat program or just throwing them in now and again?!

You squat low bar eh, isnt that harder for sucking in the air inbetween reps, just curious?
