    New training routine! Should work. I'll be squatting with one of my Sgts from the prison

    Mondays
    1 wk- deadlift off plate (ground on weeks 5 and 10), SLDs, 18" deads sometimes, Following week- 18" deadlifts, Rack Squats, bb or db rows, 1 arm Seated rows- triple super set example: set of 10 w/ right arm, set w/ left ss 2 more times each arm=1 set, bb shrugs, neck lift

    Tuesdays
    Grip and abs...buying a blob

    Wednesdays
    Squats (back and front) Back=5x5, 5x4, 5x3, 5x2, 5x1=wk 1-5,start over on week 6 with 5x5 (weight fom 5x4, etc etc), power cleans (olympic style), leg press/power squat and GMs every other week

    Thursdays
    rest

    Fridays
    Press!!- Strict Military 5x5, 5x4, 5x3, 5x2, 5x1 or 4x1 or 3x1-depending on weight used, Incline BB or Flat BB bench, DB Push, BB Push, Dips, abs/core, and forearms

    Saturdays
    Bodybuilding day!- Leg press or power squat, db incline or flat, curls, pressdowns, DB rows, BB Deline (2x12), Lat Pull downs (2x12-15), leg exts and leg curls (sometimes, horrible for your knees), and more forearms. All will be a warmup set and then either a huge, long burn out set or 2 high rep sets.Body shock

    Sundays
    rest

    Buying a blob, on power squat apparatus (leg day, not bodybuilding day) to simulate the pull start of a harness vehicle pull. If my squat plan does not pay off in 10 weeks, I will try an ed coan routine all the way thru. The triple sets in seated rows is to mock a truck pull as best I can.
