Workout Time: 81 minutes

Workout Grade: B+

After 23 years, you're still learning, ladies and germs. I've been trying to master - hone - my squat form and take the tension off the front quads for nearly a year now. And the answer was so damn simple.

SINK slowly into the hole. Keep tension. Don't lower or drop into the hole. Sinking keeps the tension on the hammies, and makes the knee, for me, align in its natural position.

Strength keeps improving on bench. There is no doubt I will hit 400 again. Maybe as soon as 3 months. I believe I'm at 350 right now. I haven't tested in a couple of months, but my strength has gone up workout after workout after workout since then.

Did I mention I suck at squats. My max has been stuck around 440 for 18 months. I'm going to grind that into oblivion, sweat lovers of the bulk. Stay tuned.

Note...all sets are performed with 2 minutes rest between.

Bench Press
285 x 2/2/2/2/2/2/2/2

Squat
365 x 2/2/2/2/2/2/2/2
