    Off to a great start Mike...you've done very well over the past few months in putting some muscle on that frame.

    Good luck at at school, obviously you are quite a scholar taking microbiology and genetics...super workout for the upper body no matter how depleted you were, nice amount of volume throughout.

    squats felt horrible today and I went a little light with good mornings because there were no racks open and had to lift the bar straight off the floor and over my head

    other than that the workout felt pretty good


    OH and if my set/rep scheme looks weird it's because I am alternating schemes each week (6x4, 5x5, and 4x6) until I start cutting in March (and then I'll probably just stick with 5x5)

    squats where right at where they were over a week ago (first squat set since then) prob. could have gone heavier, but I don't want to rush into it.

    Added more weight for SLDL (20lbs) and for DL (10lbs)
