    Mon 4/21

    Back Squat

    10 x Bar
    5 x 135
    5 x 225
    1 x 315
    1 x 365
    1 x 405
    1 x 455
    1 x 485
    1 x 505
    3 x 455
    6 x 405

    Weights felt surprisingly light considering how long it's been since I've squatted heavy. But my work capacity is non existent. Thought I'd get 8-10 at 405, but the gas tank emptied quick.

    Went full bro on this?
    Seriously, is your upper back holding you back (nice!) in any of the big lifts?

    Full Bro is the only way to train back, Bro

    Everything is holding me back on all my lifts. In my current state everything is a weak point

    Monday - Max Effort Squat or Deadlift + Prowler
    Tues - Conditioning
    Weds - Max Effort Press or Bench + BBing stuff for Chest, Delts, Tris
    Thurs - Conditioning
    Friday - Back and Biceps (BBing stuff)
    Saturday - Conditioning
    Sunday - off

    Basically a modified Westside approach. No DE days.....which makes it not Westside at all really
