Solid 80%er, thinking I’ll need to back off the pushing for squat PRs and just chase Quality volume, or mebbe stagger the workouts so whatever is being trained 2x that week can be lighter/less reps early in the week and heavier/higher reps later in the week. just to make sure i’m not hurting performance in the next session
