Thanks. If i wasn't worried about my back, I'm pretty confident it could have been x3, but it's not worth risking my partially healed back over.

What are you at?

I did 50 Front Squats using 225 lbs. on Saturday, and then ran sprints. THAT WAS KILLER! I didn't even need to do anything else.

Do you do 50 reps in one go or what sets/reps do you do?

It depends on whether or not I'm doing it for time. For dead lifts, I'll often approach a timed session by performing as many reps as possible with good form, resting, rinse & repeat until I reach 50. I don't know if that's the most strategic way to handle a timed session, so I will be playing around with various rep schemes. For 50 reps using 225 lbs. (..non-timed), I perform 5 sets of 10.

For Front Squats using 225 lbs., I perform sets of 5-7 reps, rest, rinse & repeat until I reach 50 reps. Front Squats really take a lot out of me.

For both of the exercises mentioned above, if I drop the weight down to......say, 135 lbs., I can perform 50 straight without rest. I have performed 50 reps straight through on a timed Back Squat endurance workout. It took me a lil' over 3 minutes.

You do it for time mostly for endurance right?

My goal is size, so the non-timed method would be a better choice right?

I did 30 DLs at @225lbs and took me 8:55min lol I could have done more but my form was starting to suffer.

On front squats do you go just to parallel or ass to grass?
On DLs do you touch and go or you don't touch the ground on each rep?

I noticed the technique needs to be different when doing high reps vs heavy weights. I'm trying to figure that out.

Yep! Something to mix things up when I'm not feeling my strongest, so a really heavy day isn't an option.

Yes! I will sometimes do an endurance session, and then perform sets/reps for hypertrophy.

Stopping was a smart decision indeed!

Both! It just depends on my mood, the weight being used (..the heavier I'm lifting, the more likely I'll go ATG) and what I'm trying to focus on. In MOST cases....ATG!

I never T&G in the sense that I "tap the floor and pick the bar back up". I always reset my posture/breathing.

My technique is the same regardless.

Well my back injury hasn't made progress like i was hoping it would. I'm not comfortable going heavy on anything other than bench for fear of really wrecking my back.

I've decided until i figure this out I'm going to stay light on legs and lower back straining lifts and focus on getting my legs more defined and ripped looking.

I go see the doctor Friday and if he can't figure anything out I'll go see a chiro next weekend

I feel your pain, man. My neck has been bothering me for a couple weeks now, and it's been affecting my lifts. Got a decent leg workout in yesterday, finally. Hopefully you get better soon, I'd hate to beat you to 315 squat on a forfeit

turns our the back injury was pretty severe. Pretty serious slipped disc and something with my sciatic nerve.

The doctor said i couldn't have come up with a much better rehab routine and was very impressed i never took off work and how well I've healed.

Said i probably shouldn't squat or dead lift for 3+ months and recommended i start going to a chiro regularly for a while.
