Ever do free hand body weight squats? Thinking about doing one set at the end of legs.

I was doing them over the last couple weeks.  100 reps total.

Goblet squats too.  For some reason a goblet squat allows me to get deeper in the squat, maybe because it keeps your back more upright like a front squat.

High rep free squats give me spring in my legs.  Getting up from sitting is easier.

Interesting that you are doing free hand squats. Goblet squats are great. They are deep and strict if you do them right. Guys might be surprised to find that a light dumbbell gives a ton of resistance. On another point I'm thinking about adding a few body weight exercises in. I'm already using push ups, ab wheel and hanging leg raises. Might throw in some lunge position jumps, burpees, body weight back rows, and other movements. Conditioning is offered neglected in many training programs.

I did them for a couple weeks but now I'm back to regular barbell squats.

You are right about goblet squats.  You don't need a lot of weight if you keep the reps high.

Keep it up. I was accused of working out for a couple of weeks then taking off. Just because I don't post doesn't mean I'm not hitting it hard.

8/25

200 lbs.  Down 2 lbs.

Standing calf raises - 3 sets of 1 minute each
Bench press - 5s and 3s going up 20 lbs per set to a top set of 2 reps
Behind neck press - 5s and 3s going up 10 lbs per set to a top set of 3 reps

My strength is way down so I'm doing 5s and 3s on the main lifts, squats, bench, overhead press and deadlift.

Doing bench and behind neck press once a week and alternating squat or deadlift every other week.

Not sure if I'll lose more bodyweight.  Still have a little excess on the waist.

Probably have to go down to 190 to really get leaned out.  That's really light for me.

Will keep the diet pretty clean though.

190lbs is a good weight for that height.

That's what I weighed at 18. 

Can't imagine being that light.  Would be a healthy weight though no doubt.

Only 10 lbs away.  Will think it over.

Not accusing you but I hear people saying they weigh the same as in high school. It's always the composition of the body. 180lbs at 10% body fat is way different for 180lbs at 18% body fat. 10% is 18 pound of body fat. At 18% it's 32 pounds of fat.

For sure.

I'm around 15% bodyfat at the moment using calipers.
