    45x10
    95x3
    135x3
    185x3
    220x6x3
    --Slow as ****, as I'm a back-dominant squatter. These should push my squat up.

    --585 was the slowest deadlift of my life. The pressure I felt was like when I used to squat with a suit. Sumo is my weak stance so I'm going to push it.

    3. reverse hypers
    90x6
    200x6
    290x6
    400x6

    4. sled
    100x5 round trips

    --Good workout. Felt like a weak bitch, but improving my weak points will get me stronger. I repeat that myself often.

    --I was happy to hit 365 and elated to hit 385. My squat will obviously be my big focus to hit my goal total.

    --Good workout. I went to an interview before I trained and I got a new job @the Hard Rock Hotel! Today was a great day. My new job will help my training immensely (coming from a ****ty retail schedule) and there's so many ****ing hot chicks there! Also, the hate was strong in my fellow powerlifters @the gym and this means I'm finally getting really strong!

    Squat Day

    1. front box squats w/harness
    45x10
    95x5
    135x5
    185x3
    220x3

    330x3
    365x3 PR
    --365 was the training max I used to warm-up, but 330x3 was so easy, I went for 365x3. Next week, I'll use 405 for my training max. These ****ers are hard! The front squat harness I used was bent when Kevin Nee repped out 500 on it (he used to train @a gym my buddy owned) and it fell forward after my 2nd rep with 365. I regrouped, re-racked the weight and hit a 3rd rep. I saw stars, so I closed it down. Doing heavy squats again felt good!

    2. leg press
    360x6
    540x6
    720x6
    900x6
    1080x6 PR
    --Heavy!

    3. Romanian deadlifts
    135x8
    225x8
    315x8
    405x8
    --Good form throughout.

    4. reverse hypers
    200x10
    400x3x10

    --Good workout. Doing front box squats makes me feel like a bitch! It's bench weight! Lol.
