Wait a minute, you did 155 x 100 reps of squats and 195 x 75 reps of RDL? Good luck walking tomorrow @strongmanbrett. :weary:


Hehe yeah there’s basically a 5-10min collapse zone after my fifth round of the circuit… It’s gotten better throughout the weeks.


Surprisingly, not that much DOMS, it’s helping get these legs JYOOCIER than ever.


You’ve turned into Brad Castleberry.


Pants down shirt off?? I think yes
