No you kick volume’s butt


Todays workout:
Everything beltless for now until i mention otherwise.

6x6 Paused Low bar Squats

Bench Wide grip 2 second pauses
6x5 75kg
Wide grip is feeling much better, then my usual grip… No elbow pain, and feels more stable/sturdy. Also working on getting that cheater arch to go along with it. Doing a ton of mobility work for it atm.

IN theory very light and easy, but this kicked my ass. Fuck! Last set was grinding for it to be done… Gonna reap some gains of this

Little bigger update, form is feeling fantastic on the big 3 right now. Bench and squat are locked in! Really happy with that. Deadlift is just doing its thing, i find it hard to see if its progressing with these lighter weights.

Anyways today’s training:

Paused squats
4x6 135kg
I really think paused squats are gonna have a huge impact on my regular squat, i feel way more secure out of the hole already. This is gonna have a huge pay off when i switch back to unpaused squats!

Comp bench:
Imma get a video up soon to show my new-ish form. But its feeling much much more efficient!
4x6 77,5kg

Deficit deadlift:
4x5 130kg
Just trying to get a groove in my deadlift, where the form feels as much on point as my squats/benches form currently does. I’m starting to feel it though!

Pull ups 3x8
rows 3x8
tricep pushdowns 3x8
barbell curls 3x8
