Front Squat Assault today in the gym.
Starting with some sort of heavy deadlifts. Overall back was wrecked from hitting heavy block pulls last Friday, so we had to go a little lighter there.
Front squats went very well though, up to 335 for some triples. I focused on some back squats for a few sets just to see how the hip would handle the load after a few weeks of light loading. No worse for wear.
Some belt squats and ab work to follow the onslaught. Overall a successful leg day despite lighter than expected on deadlifts.
