    • Pause Squat = set the pins such that the bar will rest on them when you are at parallel. Pause for a second at the bottom of each squat, then explode upwards.
  2. Barbell Step-ups: 2 sets, 6-8 reps (use a fairly heavy weight here, goal is to improve power)
  3. Romanian Deadlift: 3 sets, 6-8 reps (heavy weight here as well)

Volume (Shoulders + Traps, 3-0-3 tempo, 3 seconds up, 3 seconds down for each lift, use lighter weights to maintain form, 60-90 seconds rest between sets)
