  1. Love your blog and workouts! Do you do a circuit when you lift or do you perform the entire round of squats, for example, before the next move. thanks!

    1. I never do circuit training. Each set in by itself with a couple minutes rest between sets since my focus is always on getting stronger. I do supersets for upper body(that's when you see something like 1A/1B-that means I did those two exercises back and forth with 30-60 seconds rest between each). Hope that makes sense!
