Time Under Tension Legs, Back and Chest Workout

I'm almost 40 and my shoulders and knees aren't what they used to be.  This workout utilizes time under tension and lighter weights to save my tendons and joints and still build some muscle.  The actual implementation of what I did in this workout was sparked from when I watched "The Perfect Physique" on netflix.  Big Rammy was coaching some competitors and had them doing this type of rep scheme with really light weights with the idea being saving your joints and tendons.
