Breathing squats are the worst for DOMS. I would honestly rather let someone beat me in the quads with a baseball bat after a set of fivers because that would hurt less. Pushing a challenging 10 rep weight out to 20 is pure freaking torture.
Lucky you! I pushed a 6-7 rep max out to a measly 10 reps and I'm still feeling it. Probably the decreased proteinz aren't helping.
I picked up some magnesium oil about a week ago after a volume day. That stuff is like freaking black magic for muscle soreness for me. I'm a believer now.

Oh yeah...I got the magnesium chloride brine (oil). I like epsom salt baths too, but this oil is $10 for a bottle that lasts me forever! The salt is good for like 6 applications for the same price. No brainer. Only down side is the shit can burn if you are quite deficient....but the pain passes. I do a head to toe treatment with like 20+sprays sometimes. 66mg/4sprays and all.
Top set 260x11
GHR 3x8 (I was toasted and couldn't do the full 5 sets...not stong enough at em yet)
Hanging leg raise 3x10
Think I'm starting to get the technique on that GHR a bit better. Need more practice put the ole ass muscles are starting to fire . Everyone stand back! Bwahaha.
BTW...RM definitely a sick pull. Way too f'n smooth man! I've got less lofty goals of simply 405 DL and 315 Squat that I'm hoping 5/3/1 will help me to achieve. Thats like 70lbs more on each than what I can do now.
Crap workout today. Was tired, sore, and underfed.
Power Cleans: 147.5 x 3 x 5
Front Squats: 220 x 3 x 5
172.5 x 0 x 3 (yeah, I tried 3 times)
150 x 3 x 2 (grindy, may have push pressed 1 rep in there)
135 x 4 (f)
135 x 2 (the 1 I missed and 1 "debt rep")
Chin-ups: 3 x 14
Dips: 3 x 21 (last set sucked hard)
150 lb squat 5x5. I started at 65lb over a month ago and now its starting to get heavy but I feel my form is getting better and I'm getting stronger
That's the shit. Keep it going.
That's not a bad workout on the whole for someone who's getting his ass kicked by exhaustion and being on a cut. Nothing to be ashamed of there at all, especially with that brutal dip finish.
Today I just busted out some push ups, decline push ups and some odd gripped chin ups on the weird metal rings at work. Finished too late to get to the gym, so I just improvised. Tried a couple of v dips on the fat chrome hand rails that we have on the disabled ramp too... If they were angled a little narrower there would be a feasible workout right there.
