Entry #1089

Swam laps today. Really makes my shoulders feel good.


SSB box squat:
410 x 5 
> Used the belt. Despite a painful back everything went great. 

Squat walkout:
515, 20 seconds
> Taking a cue from Emevas to use these super heavy for squat training post-squats instead of as a pre-squat primer. I find it doesn't really make a huge difference for box squats, for some reason. I'll take anything I can for squat training since I still can't squat without a box.

Pause floor press:
225 x 7, 8, 8 
> Staying light because I'm still cautious about pressing horizontally, but so far so good. No pain. Suprisingly good resistance from this when taking it slow. 

Incline skullcrushers with Fat Gripz:
40s x 8
30s x 10, 8 

Went home, pigged out on an Indian recipe I'd made the night before, then went to the park.

Neutral-grip chin-ups:
18, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 5, 6, 5
> Good quality reps - a dead hang on every one and zero cheating.
