    Notes- the last couple winter breaks i havent been able to powerlift efficiently, not a quality gym, always partying, no motivation because lifts were way lower than before so i have come up with a plan off attack.... From my max effort movements ive noticed that my overhead press/dumbell bench and incline are all weaknesses. So instead of doing a max effort type routine and being frustrated all week im going to do this..

    Dumbell Flat followed by incline ill try to go 12,8,6,3 on inclines then try to hit a couple sets of 6-12 on flat and vice versa the next week.followed by 1 lat movement and 1 rear delt and couple sets of flyes and tricep pulldowns ... Second day of the week will be an overhead press followed by a drop set . 1 tricep movement 1 lat 1 bicep then flyes pulldowns rear delt with band..

    Squats will be straight week 6 week tim herquies routine... the goal is to be fresh and ready to smash PRs at the end of break, while maximizing the time over break

  20. Sunday cardio 9 30 second rounds of jump rope. And abs thats it

  21. Squats monday

    Switched racks
    Switched bars since deadlift bar was in rack
