Hi Pam! I did a reverse ramp - 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps, starting at about 85# and ending at 115#. I ended up not squatting at all because the cleans left me so winded!

My rules:
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
