Need to work on my back and legs more. Lost a lot of strength over the summer.

sorry to miss the morning crew, but I did this one in my garage this morning in order to spend a little more time with my family who came into town last night.

Back squat: 185-195-205-225
DL: 245-255-275-285

I don't have bumper plates at home and the plates are smaller in diameter than the ones in the '62 room, so it took a bit more to get the weight off the floor!

Still trying to figure out the weight room situation here. In lieu of squatting:
10,9,8...1 Burpees
2,4,6....20 Sit-ups
Alternate exercises

Then 35ish minute run (between 6 and 8 km)

DL: 250, 275, 315, 340

Improvements on the DL. I didn't pay enough attention to my previous weights and did the same today for the squats. Oops...
