Week 2 Max Effort Lower Sumo work today, and I’ve only played around with doing sumo stance maybe three times total before, so this was… interesting. I struggled trying to pull the bar backwards, as my first motion was generally to move the bar up and out, especially in my supinated…Details
Week 1 I’m back, baby! After over a month of strict volume work with very little heavy lifting, and zero bench or deadlift work (I did some box squat work), I am very excited to be back and get under some real weight. This training block I am focusing on front squats and…Details
This is my first log entry in a while, my entire last training block actually. I thought about updating a few weeks in, but at that point I figured I might as well just do a recap at the end, and I’ll explain why when I get to the recap. First, let’s talk…Details

Anthony is a former Purdue Barbell member, and is currently running his programming through Brandon Smitley.
