You will note the weight for squat and deadlift is ridiculously light. My back is a big question mark so I’m keeping this stuff light. I also haven’t back squat for 14 weeks so it was kinda weird.

Ended show and go 2 weeks early to get started on my nationals program which will look about the same as my old programs. Show n Go helped my rowing strength a ton, my back is much stronger than it was. However my low back still isn’t much better unfortunately. I may be looking at a bench only nationals…
Anyway we shall see how the next 12 weeks go, hopefully I can get back into logging my workouts.
