So, will try out a Juggernaut-style system, with the strongman event day on Saturday. Looking forward to lots of volume

warmup: foam rolled upper back, lats; static lat stretch; low back stretches

Deadlifts (generous rests, SABOs, belt)

240 x 10
240 x 10
240 x 10
240 x 10
240 x 10

notes: this was a good chance to see how my grip was doing. My low back is SO tight! I needed long breaks to just hang off the hyperextension station, and so some spinal twists and the like. by the end of the deadlifts, my low back had loosened up, thankfully. I think I need a good low back massage though, these sets were agony during the breaks.

High Bar Squats (Romaleos, SBDs, approx. 2 min rests)

190 x 5
*belt on*
220 x 5
255 x 7

notes: I was trading sets with a guy doing Good Mornings. Gym was packed.

Reverse Hyperextensions (30 sec rests)

7, 9, 8, 7

Leg Raises (30 sec rests)

15, 12, 12, 11

Was worn out, headed home. First day always feels exhausting, and the first day / volume day even more so.
