A. Back Squats – 3 x 5-8 (Double Progression)
173, made all 3 sets of 8, but damn that was hard!
***Double progression means that once you can achieve all 3 sets of 8 with same weight,
then add weight next time and work back up to 3 x 8 before adding weight again.
B. Split Squats (rear foot elevated) – Reps 15-12-9 (Increasing weight each set)
***Choice of DB/KB, Front rack or Back rack with barbell
Went with just the barbell and focused on keeping hips square
C. Front Squats – 7 sets of 7 reps, increasing weight each set to heaviest 7 reps
(Try not to rest excessively at top of rep. Especially on lighter sets)
D. Step-ups (Holding DB in each hand) – Complete all reps on ONE leg, then complete all reps on OTHER leg
***3 sets of 12 per leg (same weight for each working set)
3 sets with 20#’s in each hand
