Entry #405

I started out on squats well, but at 185, my back began to feel stiff and my right knee started to ache, so I reracked for the day. Steady, smart progression like this is key. My knee is fine now, but my back is a bit sore, though nowhere near to the critical degree of what I've gone through in past weeks. When given thought, it isn't unusual. Squats have become an unaccustomed movement for my body. I'm going to practice them everyday with just the bar, along with deadlifts.

Instead, I worked the heavybag, bare-knuckle. My form was better, and there were no mistakes. The speed-bag was flat, but I found it worthwhile to hit it like a regular bag to practice aim. This felt even felt more productive than using it the way it's intended to be.

I also ordered the trainer CoC gripper. I'm not proficient enough with the #1.
