Entry #605

Good shadowboxing today.

Weighed 225. My aim is, at least, 240.

Lats have been sore as Hell. Those underhand rows had great impact.

DE lower--

Box squats:
10 x 2   225 lbs.
> Tried something new here. Alternated between the parallel and low platform every set. It's not simply a matter of deeper being better. Parallel placed much more emphasis on the quads. Keep this up to train different sticking points.

Overhand Romanian deadlifts:
4 x 8    275 lbs.
> Not going to go higher than this until my body adjusts to all this back pressure. 200 lb. good mornings for reps takes its toll, and so do box squats as deep as the ones I do.

Full-contact twists:
3 x 8    80 lbs.
> Boring.

Dumbbell shrugs:
3 x 12   115 lb. dumbbells
> Grip was shot, but still managed.
