Working Out

I noticed it had been a while since I had posted or shared a workout. I will begin to share my workout every day so whoever is reading this can follow along. When I first moved to Colorado I had just started the Smolov Squat Routine. I will assume you don’t know what it is, but in short this is a squat program designed to increase your squat max 50-75 lbs in 15 workouts every other day. About 3 days after moving everything into our apartment we found a gym. Every other day has been squat day and I’m loving it! My squat was my worst lift for a long time. I’d always have an excuse for not doing it or not going heavy. The days I’m not doing squats I’m either doing chest and triceps day or Shoulders, Back and biceps day.  My next post will be a workout list for my training today and then a new one for each workout everyday.
