    Re: extending the deadline, I'm OK with it

    Generally I only get soreness when I do something different, like suddenly doing high rep sets when I'm used to low rep sets etc

    Sounds like you are following a specific version of a program here -- but if its anything like what I've read, embrace the fatigue and just let the weights fall where they need to. If you squatted...

    @CW47, wasn't 175 your max for regular bench? Looked like you could have done 185 on that close grip, srs

    I think it depends person to person

    For me front squats were literally just a mid/upper back exercise, I could never do enough weight for my legs. My back would always try and fold over long...

    Gotcha, Its worked really well for me in the past (and not an 'enhanced' lifter either)
