2018 Begins

A few areas of my upper legs are lit up! Could it be from those squat jumps? Finished making my Bluetooth speaker. It’s soooo nice having some real volume in the garage.

Active Life – Single Leg Bias

Warm-up

  • 10 Lateral Step Overs
  • 3 Sets
    • 8/8 Eccentric Ankle Dorsiflexion

Will my calves ever stop being sore when I do these?

Workout – 6 Sets (3 each arm)

  • 12 One Arm Front Squat (53#)
  • 10 Groiners
  • 1:00 Rest

This combo really gets be breathing heavy. It’s essentially 120 mountain climbers.

Strength – Back Squat

  • 5×135#
  • 5×185
  • 5×205
  • 5×225
  • 3x5x245

Humbling. I try not to think about what I could squat before. As I was walking the bar in after my final set I felt a little something in my left lower back. Fuck!

Then as I was getting out the dumbbell, this mother fucking 2.5# plate dropped right on the nail of big toe. I let out a bit yell. No marks on my foot yet.

Active Life – Back Max

3 Rounds

  • 8/8 Turkish Sit-up (45# DB)
  • 8/8 1 Arm RKB Swing (70#)
  • 8 Evil Wheels
  • 8 Good Morning (125#)
  • 30s Barbell Overhead Hold (125#)

Wasn’t sure if I was going to feel anything in my back, but seemed ok. Using the seventy pounder for the one arm swings may be a bit much. Realized in the second set of good mornings that they should have been sumo stance. Next time.
