Entry #1214

My right quadricep (the problem one from last year) is starting to hurt again. I'm definitely going to keep vigilant about it. I've noticed that squatting down for extended periods of time seems to cause this from the extreme stretch, not so much loaded squats. For example, when training my client on Tuesday I demonstrated this to her in order to explain how the heels should not raise when squatting; I also just do this out of habit coming from a relatively chairless culture.

295 x 3
335 x 3
375 x 8
> Exactly what I wanted, but concentration was a bit out the window tonight between sets and the build-up  felt heavy.

SSB squats:
310 x 10
240 x 7
150 x 10
> Was running out of time and didn't want to do my usual 3x10 because of my quad so I took inspiration from Emevas' drop-set and started out going for a 1-set weight increase rather than a volumous one.

Good mornings:
185 x 10
> Back was atrociously pumped from short rest times so I kept this light. Barely made it, felt like an accordion by the end.

At home:

50 lb kettlebell swings:
25, 25

RKC planks:
30 secs, 30 secs
> Ditch these, made my left pec-tendon ache a little.
