re: Daily Strength Check-In
Power Cleans 135 3x1
AMRAP Deadlifts - 405 (5)
Lunges 110-5x10
Good Morning 110-4x10
Superset: ez bar curls 4x10
Calculated deadlift max - 470
Training max - 420

Thought I would go further with deads. Maybe tired at the end of a long week or just an off day. Felt like my form was giving out going into rep six, so I called it five.

Went outside and hit the heavy bag for three rounds. I’m thoroughly exhausted.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Upside, squatted 365x5. Previously, I've gotten 365x3 when my 1 RM was 405. So, maybe I have a new 1RM in the tank.

Downside, my depth sucked. I was 2-3 inches high. My back also seized up hard and I almost threw up.

Bench EMOM singles. 250x3, 235x4, 225x3.

Back was really dicey, so no deads. 3 giant sets of spider bar good mornings, chest flys and 50 lb slamball chest passes.

4 giant sets of sled dragging, side planks and hollow rocks.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Question: Should I do deadlifts earlier in the week since it takes more of a toll than squats? I feel like if I put squats on Friday and deads on Tuesday, I might have more productivity on deads day. I feel like it easier for me to grind out squats than deads at the end of the week. Or maybe I’m a pussy. Who knows?

This is what I do. Squats usually on Tuesday and deadlifts on Friday. 2-3 days between is plenty for recovery IMO

I like doing my Deads in the beginning of the week. Right now I workout Mon, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Deads on Monday and Squats on Friday.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
I do strength squats and deads on Tuesday and Friday, respectively. I’ve just always heard you need 2 days of recovery from some heavy squats or deads, so that’s the only reason for that spacing.

I honestly can’t say whether it would help to do so deads first or vice versa, but I feel like it definitely can’t hurt either and it’s more a matter of personal preference.

I’ve always done my squats first though. Not sure if any of this really helps

Giant sets of spider bar squats, belt squats and feet elevated, weighted pushups. 5 giant sets. The spider bar squats kill my core.

2 more sets of 405x2 negative accentuated deadlifts.

Sled pulling and dragging to finish.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Thats what my squat looks like too

I have scoliosis and I didn’t squat from 18-25. Just started again within the last 7-8 months. And I still will use hack squat or the smith machine before doing normal squats

ETA: Back day

Rack pulls 365 x 5 for 5
One arm Dumbbell rows 85 x 10 for 4
Machines for the other 4 exercises
