Trained legs solo at Strength Beyond in Kalamazoo. The workout wasn't really anything to write home about. We hit legs on Saturday at the elitefts compound and we're filming back with Jeff Sygo on 3/11/15, so I wasn't looking to set any strength records. It was a high carb day, so I was pretty full...I didn't weigh myself but I'm guessing I was somewhere in the low-to-mid 280s.

Was a decent workout. I was hoping to hit some front squats, but the supersets of the toe-push hack squats with walking lunges followed by the triple drop set of hacks really kicked my ass. I'm dealing with bronchitis right now as well and my recovery between sets was pretty much shit.
I got the idea for the hack squats off the toes from a youtube video of John Meadows with Tom Platz. I'm at work and the IT nazis have youtube blocked...but if you do a search for "meadows platz hack squats" I'm sure it will come up.
I focused on constant tension and stopped a few inches short of lockout on each rep.
