    150lbs - 5x10

    Leg Curls

    Leg Presses
    600lbs - 3x12

    Yeah, buddy! I never would have dreamed of getting 260x10 a few months ago. This approach has really opened up my high-rep game and, as a result, I'm seeing improvements on my low-rep game as well. Winner, winner! The 600lbs leg presses were a great finisher! I think I can get up to 700lbs for 3x12 without much issue.

    BIG day for me! I hurt my shoulder doing 5x5 at 225. To get 7 at the same weight (with relative ease) was awesome! I feel like I'm finally done with my recovery. Not to mention, the complete mindf&ck I had with that weight (and my shoulder) is over!

    Due to a crazy schedule this week, I had to get Squats and OHP in on the same day. Killer workout this AM but I battled through (one of the rare occassions I take a pre-workout). Overall, felt really strong and even made some advanced on my OHP form which is something I've been struggling a lot with lately.
