Default Maybe more than one way to skin a cat

Well hit squats this morning.
Slept well and was ready to test my strength. Up to 250 lbs things felt really good - felt strong and form felt right on. 275 lbs felt heavy, and the work sets felt quite heavy.

W/up:
Bodyweight circuit of squats, pushups and inv. rows (did each with 10 medium, 10 wide and 10 narrow feet/hand placement).

Side to side squats (10 per side)
BB curls 50 lbs x 12 and rev grip 50 x 12
BTNS/P 50 x 20

Full body w/o:

Squats (lbs)

100x6, 150x6, 200x3, 250x3, 275x1, 300x5,4,3,3,3,2,2,2,2

Could not hit my goal of 3 x 6-7 reps per set. Deficite calories and being sick have definitely taken away strength and endurance. After the third set and only getting 3 reps, I WAS PISSED OFF!!!...so decided to just add sets of triples and doubles with decreased rests. Actually quite enjoyed that scheme, so will keep that going while I'm dropping weight.

Circuit of BBRows, DB S/Ps, and Pullups.

BBRow (lbs) 150x6, 180x6, 200x6, 180x6
DBS/Ps (lbs) 50's x 6,6,6,6
PullUps (BW) x 6,6,6,6
