Looks brutal and effective. What does you rep scheme look like on front squats?

I am not sure yet how I am going to do them.

I am thinking 2x6 light, 2x4, 2x2, then 3-5 singles

Just wondering if sets of 4+ reps were starting to tweak your neck and back. If I do more than singles on front squats, I lose focus.

How has you chest and tricep soreness been after your first bench day?

I also prefer low rep sets on front squats, I was debating doing just 3 sets of 2 and then singles, not sure yet.

My chest and tricep soreness has not been too bad after my first bench press day, I try to keep the volume low. But after doing cambered bar bench press, my chest is crazy sore today.

Off topic, but how's the scale been treating you lately? With this brutality just wondering if you are still noticing consistent muscle gain...

Looks solid and very effective the way you plan the rotation, in for your log

The scale has been stuck a little bit, not going down at all but not going up either. I blame this on my last 3 weekends, I have been away each weekend and not gotten to workout or eat enough on the weekends, I think life is settling down now.

I like it Jwood. Looks really solid hope to see some serious weight being pushed.
