The rule of thumb is 50% of total weight should be bumpers. That would get you to 185 on the bar that is droppable.
that's a good idea. The package rogue sells makes shipping free though. I will think about it. I have some things to consider before spending some more money though. The 45's are 160 shipped. Just checked.

Yea I do. No reason really other than to switch things up and hope it makes my back squat better. Any input on it? Should I keep at it or just go back to back squats?

Well it works your quads and glutes almost exclusively vs back squat that works your quads and hams.

I used to do mostly back squats, but I have been alternating between the two lately which is probably good since I want to do more olympic lifting.

I had an awesome back squat day yesterday.

3x315
3x325
3x335
3x345
3x355
3x365

On the second rep of the 3x355 I leaned forward too much and almost lost it. Went back down into the bottom of the squat and got the rep from a deadstop..... strongest I've ever felt.

See they make it easy to "isolate" your legs, per se. Front squat is perfect for my split, as I do quads one day and hams another.

so tonight I just did 50 pull ups. I didn't do the conditioning challenge because I was a little sore from last night. Stupid excuse I know.

I have a new dieting motivation plan I want to start tomorrow. I decided I'm going to take a pic of everything I eat just to see how I'm doing. I figured putting a picture to my diet instead of just writing it down will be more interesting.

good progress man, keep it up! I want to get more comfortable doing front squats, I suck at them.

I need to get back on fitocracy and log my workouts. I think I posted only one when I signed up haha.
