205lb, 3x5 (paused, 90 second rests)
I’ve recently come to the determination that I’ve dropped squat volume too much. I’ve done so in an attempt to focus more on assistance, but I think it’s not working well.
I also realized that I’ve been failing on some important cues.
So I decided to try paused squats for a while. They’re a good way to make the lift much more difficult while using very light loads. The lighter loads on the 10 rep and volume stuff should allow me to focus more on cues than getting the weight up.
Anyways, the 255lb felt great. I didn’t pause long enough on set 1-2. Counted to two in my head for set three.
Not sure how to work progression into this yet. Should I be increasing the set of 10/add weight to paused squat/pause longer/???

loaded 365lb and then decided that it’s a really dumb idea.
255lb, 5x6 (TnG, 60 second rest)
Did this mostly on a single breath.
Pull-up/push-up/hanging leg raise/cossack squat-
Hanging with straight arms for most of the reps without feeling like my arm is going to fall out now. Pull-ups very easy- I need continue with the lat pull-downs until doing sets of 10 become easy.
Lat pull-down/single leg deadlift-
135lb, 3x9/3x5 (30 second rest)
Balancing on my left leg significantly easier than my right leg. Has to be because of some muscle tightness somewhere.
