Volume Squatting – Lifting Log

Volume Squatting - Lifting Log - Phase 2

Volume Squatting

Today was hot as sin both inside and outside of the gym. Makes it really hard to get a ton of volume in when you can’t see or breathe because you’re sweating so hard. I don’t live for excuses though, so I added two more sets at 180 to my 10×10 pyramid this week. I’m still a few lbs short of the 18000 lbs of volume I wanted to hit, but 17700 lbs isn’t too bad.

Overnight I slow cooked some chicken in BBQ sauce and sriracha to make some epic pulled chicken. Once I discovered my own slow cooker, I’ve realized that pulled meat is one of my favourite foods. The best part is that it takes absolutely no effort. Definite gains in there, kids.
