Wednesday: Back squats X 5

Ahhhhhhhh... strength days!! Who doesn't love throwing around some heavy weight in the morning? Certainly not I! I was up late Tuesday night again, thanks to work at the restaurant, but hit the hay as soon as I could. I was feeling a little wonky going in, but I can't miss strength days. I just can't. I did take a rest day on Tuesday (I finally listened to my body) and so I didn't feel bad. Ramping up, it felt heavy all day, but I was stoked, and I mean STOKED to hit this yesterday.

Loved the 185X 5! :) Not a PR but close. Not really much else to say about that, except that Jerry and I made some adjustments to my set-up. I took a little wider grip, and worked on getting the bar higher on my back. I was too low which I think may have been part of the reason I was having such a hard time getting out of the hole. Not to mention the fact that you know, there's like 200lbs on my back. Whatevs... irrelevant.... :P Oh and in this vid, check out Dan's one handed back squat. Yeah, you read that right.... but PS I don't, and I repeat, DON'T recommend that.
