DE squats. This is the first week of a mini-cycle with safety squats on a low box. The weight is light, the bar is moving fast, and my lower back is fried due to the SLDL.

I decided to go raw for this first week, and focus on technique. I haven't done a lot of safety bar squats, and the form is a bit different compared to regular squats. Basically, I find that I'm always fighting a tendency to hunch over.

Safety bar low box squats (raw):
bar x lots
155 x 5
245 x 2 x 4 sets
255 x 2 x 4 sets
260 x 2 x 4 sets

Stiff-leg DLs (3'' deficit platform)
135 x 10
185 x 10
200 x 10

Pull throughs:
heavy bands + half rack x 12 x 2 sets

DB shrugs
100 x 12 x 3 sets

Calf work
