Forgot to record an upper-body finisher workout at night last session. Just some skullcrushers and curls.

Mat pulls (3)
495 x 8

SSB box squats
330 x 5, 5, 5
Knee hurt on first set, little less so subsequently. This was surprisingly challenging, mostly coming "unstuck" off the box.

Neck crunches
45 x 6
Using a Spud neck harness, way harder than holding a plate on my head.

Goblet squats
50 x 30


  1. SSB box squats are brutal. I think you'd notice some great carryover to stones on it. Seems like it would replicate the exact moment you have the stone lapped and need to transition to the platform.

  2. Oh yeah, I definitely felt my back trying to collapse under the bar as I tried to sit up. I've done heavier years ago (when my shoulder dislocated and I did nothing but SSB squatting) and don't remember them being so hard at that time.
