still using double overhand..sumo is coming fast tho...grip strenght is a priority right now...once i get back where i was i will need straps, i used to use use them all the time and my forearms alway lagged...got a new bb app that tracks my food, so i can now post my macros..and i can effectively track that aspect aswell...

today:339/348/69

Squats:
135x5
185x3
225x2
255x5,5,5
BB Sh. Press:
Barx10
95x4
125x5,5,5
BB Row:
125x3
155x5,5,5 ++
Pullups:BWx5,3,1
Chinups:BWx6,5,3
Done in alternating SS fashion between sets of squats

I never knew squatting this frequently would have such an impact on me...by the time my 2 day break comes...I am ready for it...sometimes I even have to take it a workout early, then get back on track..its mentally and physically draining

Only one hour?! That's not nearly enough trick-or-treating.

You're numbers are looking pretty good. How is your injury? Any pain or soreness?

Barx8
135x5

-Squats got heavy for 3rd set, will see how I feel warming up next time wether to bump up or stay for one more workout

if you failed on the BB OH press i wouldnt move up, i tried that as i assumed i had an off day, next thing i know i ended up stuck for 2 weeks as i overloaded the bar. nice progress on squats, im only just pushing towards 200lbs again after an injury.
