Just get Stronger!
This is the training log I'll use from now on. It wont be based on any specific routine/program. Just training, pure and simple. What I will say is this, I will focus on compound lifts, and I will always push myself to become stronger.

Giddy up Casey! I'm on board.

Gave pause squats a try and Holy Crap, they kicked my butt. When I finished I felt like I had done several sets of leg press + leg curls, but it was just 3x6 with 205. Tough, but I like it!

I started using versa grips for power shrugs and I'm still testing to see what my back & traps can handle, so I'm making small jumps every workout until I find a weight I can only do for like 2x5. Then I'll keep working until i can do 5x5. Power Shrugs: 225 x 5 295 x 3 315 x 1 335 x 1 345 x 1 355 x 5 355 x 5 355 x 5 355 x 5 355 x 5 Pause Squats: 135 x 5 185 x 3 205 x 6 205 x 6 205 x 6 OHP: bar x 5 95 x 8 95 x 8 95 x 8 95 x 6 Seated Row (Machine): 160 x 15 160 x 15 160 x 11 Tricep Extension w/EZ: 75 x 10 75 x 10 75 x 10 Side Bends: 55 x 15 55 x 15 55 x 12

Cable Pulldowns: 140 x 15 130 x 15 130 x 15 
Good work Casey. Glad to see you using the versa grips and getting the best out of your back.
