Squats and Bench Press

Second day of Hypertrophic training and I am already feeling better. I had to get some tiger balm for my hamstrings last night. I felt much better this morning.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps.

Working Sets
Squats - 5 sets/12 reps/70kg.
Bench Press - 5 sets/12 reps/75kg.

Not very exciting but the volume sure is feeling good. I started squatting with a narrow stance and my right knee was bothering me. One the 4th set I widened my stance and all the pain went away. In fact my squats felt wonderful with a wider stance. Something to make sure I do from now on. I like the high reps. It gives me plenty of opportunity to work on form and function.
