I will be using cheating movement far more often! Today I decided to say screw form and just throw some serious weights around. I felt great about the front squats, which were done as low as I can possibly go (I literally went untill my hamstrings touched my calves), then after that it was all about going as hard as possible.

People who say you have to stick to good form all the time have no clue how much you can stimulate your muscles by just grabbing heavy weights and throwing them around as many times as possible. I will be training like this far more often now that I'm big enough and lean enough that no one would dare try to tell me I'm doing something wrong. I learned today why we always see bodybuilders "cheating" their way through workouts.

I'll also be using heavy front squats more often. I've never pushed myself like that on them and my legs felt amazing.

This workout gets a big A from me.

Afterwards it was off to Subway for a 6", which gives me right at 50g of carbs.
