Today's workout looks simple, but it's brutally taxing. You've got 5 sets of 4 reps across four different compound exercises lined up, which adds up to a decent amount of volume and a whopping pile of heavy weight. In addition to the volume and intensity, today's session also includes unique exercises that will emphasize and stress new muscle groups.
Using a wide stance with your back squat and deadlift will activate your adductor muscles on the insides of your thighs. Strong adductors can be a powerful addition to your hip-dominant exercises. Getting low and wide will definitely help you get stronger.
Sometimes, wide-stance exercises can take a little practice. Don't hesitate to use a couple light warm-up sets to figure out what's comfortable before you add a lot of weight. Once you've got the form down, though, let it rip and earn each three-minute rest period.
