Jonathan Byrd Squat/Dead Auxiliary day


Squat/Dead Auxiliary day

I have tried to keep this day at a much higher tempo than I do on my main lift days. It seems to be helping with the conditioning and weight loss.

4×8 one arm kb swings
4×8 goblet squats
3×6 rows, squeezing each rep at the top
3×8 single leg good mornings, with a nice hamstring cramp and near death experience.
3×20 dumbbell shurgs
4×10 lat pull downs

McGill big 3

I am still having some bicep/forearm pains, so that is why I cut out the McGill pull ups. Not sure exactly what is causing the issues, but it is improving each week. Body weight is down to 284 today, which is the lowest in years. As long as I don’t get off course I will be able to compete at 275 next meet.
