So this week I decided I wanted to go heavy on back squats. Not a one rep max, but I wanted to at least get some heavy doubles over 200 pounds, since I've never squatted over 200 for reps! I worked up to 210, which I was happy about. Not the most I've ever squatted, but for not doing heavy back squats much lately, I'm satisfied with it! After that was sumo deadlifts, 4x6 with a light weight, about 70% of my sumo max. I'm going to start light on these for now and then work my way up each week in weight. Then I supersetted glute ham raises and step  ups. For the step ups I focused on going slow and controlled, no bounce off the back foot. Great workout!

1)Back squats: 200x2/210x2x2
2)Sumo deadlifts: 155x4x6
3a)GHR: 0x10/20x3x8
3b)Step ups on  high box: 0x10/15x3x10
4a)Calf raise: 5x10 w/pause
4b)Single leg hip thrusts: 3x15
Cereal gains ;)
Bench wasn't my strongest today. It is really just my left arm that gives out on me! The last 2 sets felt good though. After bench I did some dumbbell push presses, which were fun. Then finished up with shoulder stuff and overhead carries.

1)Bench press: 115x4/120x3/120x3/115x6/115x6
2a)Wide cable row: 110x10/8/ Chinups: 2x9

3b)TRX face pull to external rotation: 3x12-15
4)Overhead carries: 40lbs x 30 seconds/ 45lbs x 2x30 seconds

I'm pretty sure I got a hip thrust rep PR this week-245 for 8. Squats felt sooooo heavy though! I did pause squats at 155 and could barely get 6! Pause squats are so hard,even when it's only like a half second-it feels like forever. lol. The rest of the workout was good though!
