Todays workout killed my legs, it took over two hours to complete somehow. No matter how hard I try, I can't get my workouts under an hour. And yes, I know that growth hormone decreases drastically after an hour and cortisol shoots up.

I did 5x5 of back squats and deadlifts, a little WOD, and some farmers walks.

Back Squat:
1: 135          2: 145               3:145                4: 145              5: 155

1: 155         2: 165                3: 175                4: 175            5: 185

It's really weird that my 5 RM was so close for my deads and back squats. My deads should be far stronger than my back squats.

Then I did 4 rounds ( I had planned on five then shortened it) of:

10 OH squats ( 55 lbs)
15 full power burpees
20 lunges holding a 45 lb plate overhead
20 bench step ups with bar on back ( 55 lbs)

Then I did some uniltateral farmers walks with a 45 lb plate. Doing it unilaterally really works on keeping that scapula retracted and KILLS YOUR ABS.

I'm excited to see how sore my legs will be tomorrow :)
