Strength is monumentally better than last week's 315 for 6 on squats. The bar is feeling a little bit better in the higher position on the back, and I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable with the knees tracking forward on the descent. Depth was actually better than its been since I've started using a slightly higher bar position.

The SSB round back good mornings are at the suggestion of Jim. He uses very little weight on this, so I decided to use littler weight. I literally have never purposefully tried to do any kind of lower body movement with a rounded back...not good mornings, romanian deadlifts or anything. Sometimes it happens that way, but it's never been purposefully done. Surprisingly, the low weight actually was pretty tough. I really controlled the eccentric here and exploded on the way up and I felt it strongly in the glutes and hams.

I'm working on slowing down the eccentric on some of my assistance work. Especially with the GHRs, I think that I'm always in such a hurry to add reps or weight, that I might be missing out on some of the hamstring recruitment that I might get by just slowing it down.

I'm also keeping the training volume a little bit higher during this "cutting phase" than normal. Hoping it will prevent me from withering away as I push the diet and cardio harder.
