I am still not allowing myself to handle anything in the 500 + range for the squat so this forces me to do movements that are more difficult.  I am focusing on my quads today with some front squats.  This will allow me to see how my rec fem is at the hip insertion because the front squat forces a high degree of hip flexion while at the same time being a quad dominant movement.  So hopefully my quad holds up.

I am also going to be doing some HELLRAISER's which I love for building upper strength in my back for BOTH squatting and deadlifting.

Front Squats: 405 x 5, 455 x 3, 455 x 4, 405 x 8

Conventional Deadlifts: 570 lbs x 6(full stop) x 6 sets
GHD Situps x 20 x 4 sets
Ring Inverted Shrugs: x75, x100

The deadlifts today were very tough.  I found the 5th and 6th reps of each set to be much tougher than I had hoped.  I think that my back was a little cooked from the Hellraisers on Thursday as my back was rounding a little at the T-spine during my deadlifts.  Not a bad week thus far.
