Entry #541

DE lower-body

Box squats:
10 x 2   225 lbs.
> Warmed up by doing bodyweight squats on the low stool (one plate lower than regular range). Made all the difference.  First set was as fast as the tenth. Hip flexor and psoas flexibility is essential.

3 x 8     45 lbs.
> Back was feeling stiff, so I opted for these less strenuous alternatives to good mornings.

Full-contact twists:
4 x 8     70 lbs.

Neck crunches:
3 x 8     45 lbs.

Gripper #1:
3 x 5

George was over yesterday, but we didn't spar.


  1. Huzzah for neck work, and congrats on moving up on the gripper.

  2. Didn't spar, eh? Letting the universe exist for a few more days? You're getting soft.
    I need to get a neck harness.

  3. It wasn't my call. George isn't usually too enthusiastic in unseemly settings. Me, I'll take what I can get and spar anywhere with anyone. Just different standards.
