531 Push/Pull/Legs (C31_3C)

This morning I completed 531 Push/Pull/Legs (C31_3C) as follows:

Squats  3-135, 3-155, 3-175, 3-225, 2-250, 3x2 @ 280

Superset:
SSB Squats  6x6 @ 225
SLDL  8-185, 6-228, 3x6 @ 250 (Off 4" Blocks)

Bodyweight: 216.0 Pounds (Down 6.2 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9)

Workout Duration: 43:08.06 mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Great workout...squats felt strong.  I'm really liking the volume sets of FSL on SSB.  I can see definite improvements in quad strength and size from those.

This ends this cycle of 531.  Starting on Saturday I'm going to start my plan of alternating weeks of 531 with Sheiko.  I think that will give me the benefits of both workout programs and reduce wear and tear on my body as I'll get a chance to recover from each program while I'm doing a week of the other one.  They both provide good work but in different ways and at different intensities.
