Today I completed Workout B, Phase 1 from Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training “15 Pounds of Muscle in 8 Weeks” program. This workout was a Lower Body Dominant workout consisting of various squats, dead lifts, some ab work & a shoulder exercise rounded it out.
This is the second time I have completed this particular workout. But this time, I made minor modification that turned out to be a nice surprise. Instead of doing Barbell Back Squats, I decided to swap them out for Barbell Front Squats:
It has been months since I have done front squats. When I worked with Roman, I did many, many sets of front squats. But I got bored with them after awhile. So I began doing back squats. For the latter part of November & the majority of December, I didn’t do a single front squat.
For some reason, I decided that today I do front squats instead of back squats. Glad I did. What a great exercise! From here on out I will be alternating between back & front squats.

Sometimes it seems like my iPod knows I’m working out. I turn on shuffle & it delivers music that keeps me pumped!
