    Well I certainly wouldn't have guessed. I thought you were like 5'10" 275. I'd like to be around your size in the next 4-5 years.

    Deadlift

    Olympic squats w/SSB:
    Barx10
    150/2x10
    240/2x10

    Deadlift:
    245x5
    245x3...Sumo
    335x3
    335x1...Sumo
    425x3
    525x5
    Added belt
    595x3
    665x4...PR!!!

    Suspended GM's w/CB:
    175x5
    265x5
    315/2x5

    Pendlay rows:
    245/3x5

    Barbell shrugs:
    225x10
    315x8
    365/2x8
    225x10 w/2 second pause at the top

    GHR:
    BW/3x8...assisted

    Leg curls (single leg)
    2x10

    Done...I'm 12 weeks out and I hit a strong deadlift PR. The Olympic squats I think helped me out a lot as far as getting my hips and lower back warmed up. So I'll keep doing those first.

    Speaking of squats, as you can see, I brought back suspended GM's. When I hit my best squats, I was doing them every other week. So I'm going to add them into my routine and see how it goes.

    I don't know, I'm going to have to measure myself again. April is giving me doubts, lol. Everytime I measure my height I always come up with 66" which is 5'6.

    Thanks, You're not that far behind! I'm going to alternate them with something different every other week. I'm not 100% sure if they helped my squat, but I was doing them every other week when my squat was at its strong point. I hit 585x6, 600x5, 635x3 and 675x1 with just a belt and sleeves. So we'll see what happens.
