    Thoughts on my workout routine

    Hey everyone, I am just starting my strongman journey and I am wondering if you can take a look at my workout routine, and let me know what you think, what is junk, and what I should add (exercises, sets, and reps). Also, is there a big difference between machine squatting (hack squatting) and regular squatting? I really enjoy hack squatting, but I struggle reaching the bar to hold it. I am currently 6'3" ~340lbs 27yo.
