Thanks. I've actually tried higher frequency and volume in the past, so this isn't too bad. Granted, those harder programs didn't always work out very well. I'm interested to see where this goes.

My all time squat PR of 525 was in wraps. Since then I haven't used wraps, and I'd like to keep it that way, but my knees have been giving me hell lately. May have to go back to them at some point.
