Entry #1078

Had a case of DOMS in my quads during warm-up Hindu squats, so I decided to change things up today and avoid squatting deep.

SSB box squat:
400 lbs x 3, 4, 3
> Could have hit 4 on all sets but kind of wanted to hold back today. Never squatted 400 for reps before. Clearly I'm proficient with the stretch-reflex from squatting ATG so much because I had terrible pop coming off the stool. It felt like I was trying to rip my legs out of being super-glued. Once I actually moved off the rest of the rep was easy.

10 lb plate x 15, 12

Floor press:
295 lbs x 5, 5
> No struggle, had a couple more reps in me.

With 2-second pauses:
275 lbs x 5

Dumbbell row:
180 lb dumbbell x 5, 5, 5
> Done standing with the power rack for support.

25 lbs x 10, 10
> Taking it easy for my shoulder.

Alternating hammer curls with Fat Gripz:
60s x 14, 12

I didn't even want to train today but it ended up being fun as hell. Hit some solid numbers while still cruising on easy. I'll be ready to get back to business on Saturday.
