Meanwhile in Estonia …
Mart Seim Back Squatted 400kg today. A big milestone for the 25 year old.
No belt. No wraps.
Below the video is a quick Q&A. Follow him @martseim on instagram.
Of course I had to ask Mart a couple of questions…
Gregor: So what’s next?
Mart: Now the main focus is lifting (classic lifts) and Pulls again.
Gregor: the 400kg came quicker than I expected.
Mart: It was a little surprise for me too.
Gregor: When did you know that today was the day?
Mart: Just before the 400
Gregor: What were your warm up attempts?
Gregor: 360 must have been fast today?
Mart: Nope 🙂 I still didn’t have the best feeling.
Gregor: but you just thought “let’s try 400”?
Mart: Well 400 was a motivating number. Now I have more time to focus on other things.
Gregor: Any specific numbers you want to hit on Pulls?
Mart: I don’t do max with Pulls. Just want to get Pulls feeling easy.
Gregor: Okay and how will your Squat training look like from now on?
once a week I will do some sets with 350kg or something like that
Mart: So far I did Squats as the first exercise in my training sessions.
Now I will do squats at the end of my training sessions.
I want to keep that strength. So once a week I will do some sets with 350kg or something like that.
I will squat 3 times per week.
- Monday: Front Squat
- Wednesday: Back Squat
- Friday: some higher rep sets, like 270/6 or something. Light weight, but something to keep the legs working.
