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.
