Three singles at 600lbs this morning on the Anderson Squat, a partial squat variant where the barbell starts dead on the pins, named after the legendary Paul Anderson.
Anderson squats are an excellent tool for overloading the support structures of the squat, building the glutes and hamstrings, power production from a standstill, training the deadlift from the other side, and many other applications. Learn how to do them properly at the new Agatsu Strength & Speed course!
Close-Up of the buffalo bar I used for my bench press training this morning - love this thing! Specialty bars are definitely a luxury item and plenty of people have gotten super strong without ever touching one but if you can find them for reasonable prices they can make a serious difference.
320lbs on the buffalo bar this morning - first time ever benching on this bar and I loved it!
A buffalo bar is a 33mm thick 60lb bar that's curved enough to add 2 inches to the range of motion on the bench while also changing the hand position and putting more emphasis on the pecs and shoulders. I have a feeling my 340lb PR for standard bench is going to fall soon, and hard!

Finisher for today's workout - 5 minutes of high-knees marching with kettlebells. You can switch between racked, overhead, farmer holds or whatever else just don't stop marching and don't let the weights touch the floor. Deceptively tough!
