Week 4 Offseason Squats and Deads


Squat/Dead Aux Day

The plan was to just get in one set of squats with some higher reps and shut it down for the day. Well that plan broke apart pretty fast.

Added Wraps

Deadlifts: Conventional with double over hand grip

Pause Squats: Buffalo Bar
2×6 2 count pause

Reverse Sled Drags
2 trips

First the squat depth was all over the place in the set with wraps. I should have expected that being the actual number of reps, and that I have not used just wraps in awhile. I am pleased with how well my grip is improving, I am going to continue to use the double over hand for awhile until I switch back to my sumo stance.
