The box squats look really impressive. How does your lower back handle them? Fairly well by the look of things.

My back handles them well I guess, but the funny thing is my abs will feel it more so than anything else.

I made sure I'm not leaning forward but had my shoulder blades tight and straight spine every time in the mirrors.

Bench Press 4x6: 135, 155, 155, 165lbs

2nd 12 Day Cycle

Day 1:


Deadlifts 5x3: 275, 295, 315, 320, 320lbs

Front Squat 3x6: 155, 185, 185lbs

Ab roller 3x20

Question, my grip was close to failing near the end of deadlifts. I don't want to use gloves. Instead I'd like to make my grip stronger.

What are some good grip exercises most have done?
I might have to try chalk out.

For grip, just doing deadlifts will improve it; you can also hold a lower percentage of your top deadlift at the top position for as long as possible which allows you to use the grip.

Others do plate pinches and use grippers.

Day 2 of Second Cycle

I was paranoid about my squats getting weaker so I had to add it in just in case.
Warmed up with 1x20 @ 135lbs Front squats
ATG Squat: 225, 275, 295, 315lbs for 5 reps.

Moved on to the main routine.

Seated DB Press 4x6: 45, 55, 55, 60lbs

Upright Rows 3x8: 115, 115, 120lbs

DB Curl 3x8: 35lbs

I like working the shoulders. It's pretty fun and I know I'm working on parts that I neglected in the past.

Well big problem. I thought I could keep this routine up, but with school and new shop opened, it's not gonna be possible.

I'm gonna have to go back to a full body 3x/week. I'll make a log over there.
Really sucks to quit something.

BtB if you could close this thread or something that'd be great.
Thanks.
