TEN TON CHALLENGE!
Sadly, this is simply something I invented myself and it isn’t that hard. Still, it was something to work towards. Essentially, the goal is to shift ten tons of iron in one half-hour long squat session, comprising of ten sets of ten reps at 100kg.
I have been building up to it for a few weeks, by doing something like this:
Week 1: 70 x 2, 80 x 4, 90 x 2, 100 x 2
Week 2: 70 x 2, 80 x 2, 90 x 2, 100 x 4
Week 3: 80 x 2, 90 x 2, 100 x 6
Week 4: 100 x 10
Excluding warm-up sets, naturally.
I neither know nor care whether this was the right way to approach this – it seemed to work out just fine!
[EDIT: I have now gone on to perform my first set of 15 reps at 110kg! I screamed… According to the one-rep max calculator, my maximum squat should now be 180kg…I know for a fact it is not…but I really want to try and see…)
