Saying that you are too tall to squat is just an excuse to not load the bar and get under it. Theres no shame in saying that you can't handle it. But saying that you are too tall is BS.

Leg Presses are definitely easier and they hurt less. Understood

You can be too tall to squat? WTF?

Bro, seriously, that does sound like an excuse. Not hating, just keeping it real.

I'm piecing together a new plan, inspired by John Christy. 2 days a week, maybe a third day for bonus work.

Thinking through the exercises:

--Squats
--Deadlifts/Sumo Deadlifts (I like doing both...can't decided if I shoudl do both each week)
--Bench Press
--Overhead Press
--Yates Rows
--Romanian Deadlifts
--Upright Rows (?)
--T-Bars (?)
--Incline Press (?)
--Closegrip bench (?)
--Curl exercise
--ab exercise

...I have some honey-dos...thinking more on this later

Here's what I'm starting with.

Simple progression. Go up in weights when I hit 10 reps for all sets. I like the 6-10 rep range, so I'm sticking primarily with that.

I am going to workout every third day with an AB split.

WORKOUT A

Sumo Deadlifts. 6-10 singles, limited rest between reps. Work up by one rep per workout. When I hit 10 singles, I add 10 pounds to the bar.
Front Squats. 2 x 6-10
Seated Overhead Press. 3 x 6-10
Incline DB Press. 2 x 6-10 (This might change...I tried it today and I hate getting the DBs into position. I might do flat bench DB instead.
T-Bar Rows. 2 x 6-10
Seated BB Curls. 2 x 6-10

NOTES. 12 sets. Debated whether to use regular deadlifts, but since I'm getting enough back workout, though the sumo focus on hammies would work better.

WORKOUT B

Squats. 3 x 6-10, narrow stance. I might move ceiling to 15 reps.
RDLs. 2 x 10-15. I like lower weight, higher reps on these suckers.
Bench Press. 3 x 6-10
Upright Rows. 2 x 6-10. What can I say...this is a pet exercise.
Yates Rows. 2 x 6-10
Closegrip bench. 2 x 6-10

NOTES. 14 sets.
