Looking back, it's been a month since I squatted last. No wonder I felt weak.

I planned out a new hypertrophy based routine and started today. It's based around a 4 day split still. One upper power day, one lower power day, one upper hypertrophy day, and one lower hypertrophy day. I'm cranking up the volume significantly and pour on a few calories. Hopefully build some muscle.
I also started using the new slow cooker to pre make some meals. So far so good.

I was still battling some crazy soreness from saturday's squats... since I hadn't squatted in a month before that (weak sauce). Decided to try and work through the soreness today to try and keep the first week on schedule... we'll see in the next couple days if that was a mistake or not. My legs are dooonnneeeeeeee.
One bonus though is that if you stick to the 2 minute rest for power lifts and 1 min rest for hypertrophy/accessory lifts then the lower day is pretty short (about 45min).

Hamstring curls suck on a normal workout day ... but they really suck right after stiff leg deads....
I somehow lost 2lb. I've been eating lots but I guess my body must be really trying hard to repair. Which I guess means the new workout is taxing the body which is a good sign.

My weight is bouncing around like crazy. Can't tell if I'm losing or gaining or just some sort of weird fluctuation.

Getting a little more used to the volume work. It's starting to feel a bit better.

Leg press machine had no seat on it so I used the squat machine instead. It was actually pretty tough.

Big change in workout type since i last looked(pretty much been a stranger to the fourm and the gym for the last year lol). I'm interested to see how the hyper training works for you. Did you take some start measurments arms/legs etc as you may notice more difference in size vs strength with the new program?
