This week my lower back was bothering me more than normal so I decided to replace low bar squats with high bar squats.

They have allowed me to squat despite low back pain in the past, and I can still say it's still effective.

I even hit a 5 rep max at 427.5 lb!

Bench press (reverse grip) is continuing to progress, as I hit the prescribed sets and reps at 317.5 lb (3x3). Recorded it at different angles to see what it looked like:

Also played around with the "Modified Bradford Press", which is essentially an overhead press followed by a behind the neck press. Not bad.

Anyway, check these out:
