    Yeah, squats are a great warmup, and I need the extra practice to keep my form right, anyway. I just multiply my training max by .6 and .7
    In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

      Ha! I have a spreadsheet ready for future use where I had pretty much the same idea, except it's .4/.5/.6 for 5/5/10 reps on my Deadlift/Press day.

                • I don't really have days, but I've just been doing the usual, push-ups, chin-ups, dips, some curls and bench-presses, and the occasional brief trot. I do stand and walk much of my working shift, and push a 172-pound cart all over the place, and squat to draw blood. So I don't really need the added stress of a mad workout routine. But, yes, I'm maintaining my functionality quite well without burning out.

                    • Yes, that counts, too, I suppose! And I picked up the boulder again to open the shed - that thing keeps getting lighter!
