Maximum Effort Squat

I trained at the Heavy Hammer Gym today so I don’t have enough weights to max out.  This is what I did:

Squat – 135 x 10 pause, 225 x 5, 295 x 2, 400 x 2 x 2

Straight Leg Deadlift – 80% x 15 reps x 3 sets – 160 lbs

Leg Extension/Curl – 80% x 12 reps x 3 sets – 140/95 lbs (found a huge imbalance between by quads and my hamstrings.  asked some questions on Starting Strongman Facebook group and got advice on other accessory exercises to help strengthen my hamstrings or work my mobility.)

Calf Raise – 80% x 25 reps x 3 sets – 160 lbs

Abdominal Crunches – Bodyweight x 30 reps  3 sets.
