    Yeah got to 80kg for 20 reps on squats.
    The back seems ok so far.
    This is probably my last attempt with squats.
    If I get one more back injury I will stick with leg press and start progessively overloading lunges instead of squats. In many respects heavy walking lunges are just as good and in some ways better than squats, especially for someone that is concerned with back injuries.
    I reckon 80kg walking lunges would be a decent first goal to shoot for.

    I am now.
    I had 3 months off due to overseas holiday.

    Did a very pathetic linear progression over the last 5 weeks.

    At my age transitioning to intermediate earlier seems appropriate. It just feels better, less injuries etc.
    I'm in no hurry to break PRs.

    I waa surprised to lose at least 25% of my strength on all lifts.
    Kind of humbling maxing out on bench at a weight that would normally be a very light warm up set
