    Ok, I have to ask. Why 29? Why not 30...25...? That is some serious volume for sure big guy.

    It is within a 30 minute window, I thought I could get to 30 within 30 minutes first time around, but damn 29 almost killed me!

    6/29/10
    narrow stance squats to 12 inches
    275 x 4reps @ 2/1/1/1 tempo x 21sets
    superset with
    glute ham raises @ bw x 6reps x 21 sets
    completed in 30 minutes
    f'k me!
    couldnt keep yesterday's pace of 29 sets due to cramping and projectile vomitting at set 17, but 21 wasnt bad all things considered. My legs burn with a fire that I've never felt in all my years of training!

    180 x 6 reps x 25 sets @ 2/1/1 tempo
    Completed in 32 minutes

    Had to add two minutes b/c i obviously over compensated on tempo today, I had been doing more of a 4/1 versus a 2/1 like I was shooting for. It cost me several sets so I continued for an extra 2 minutes.

    Alright, kinda got the groove back on squats today. Felt good, and killed it pretty good.
    Narrow stance squats
    335x4x25
    Lying leg curls
    150x6x25
    tempo was at 2/1/1 for all sets. Squats were very explosive, every rep finished with the bar hopping 2-3 inches off my traps.
    Done in 30 minutes. Smoked!

    I love reverse grip rows. They hit the lats lower and don't involve as much trap/shoulder.
