9-3-20 Volume lower body

Warm up
2-3 rounds of:

  • 10 back extension or reverse hyper
  • 20 med ball goodmornings
  • 50 banded walks

Main work

  • Squats 6x3x75%
    Be sure to record your squat from the side to make sure you're hitting depth. If you're new, nursing an injury and need to stay higher, switch to a high box squat
  • Deadlifts 5x8x65% or less
    These should feel moderate with good speed. Think of exploding through the middle part of the lift to lockout. Today, speed > than the weight on the bar. If it moves too slow, lower the bar weight.
