These Boots Were Made For... Squattin'?

ME LOWER DAY EXPLOSIONS! 3 hours, PRs, dogs escaping, romance. We had it all today!

A1. Hip/Shoulder Mobility/Prehab

B1. Squats

8 x 45#
8 x 135#
5 x 185#
3 x 225#
1 x 275#
1 x 315# This wasn't quite low enough. Which is odd, because I usually put ass to grass on this rep...
1 x 355# This felt too easyJessica swears it was low enough but the video doesn't convince me. If it was, Seattle PR!

Overall I was not happy with my squat session. I don't think I hit proper depth and it was discouraging to have that happen 2 weeks from a meet, especially since this was the last heavy day till then...

C1. 1-Armed Rows

6 x 4 x 115#

These were very challenging, but I done did 'em.

D1. 1-Legged Deadlifts

3 x 8 x 100#

D2. Blast Strap Ab Fallouts

3 x 8 x bw

After these, I was absolutely gassed. Even still, I wanted to get some farmer walks in, so I rested for 10 minutes, loaded up the handles and scared some neighbors!

E1. Farmer Walks

3 x 90ft x 160# per hand

The first 2 sets of these were a speed improvement over last week (As well as 10# per hand heavier). The third set killed me at the turn (I had to drop them and re-grip), but overall i am happy with how they felt.

Great workout, lots of ice on the back and knees now, and soon there will be BBQ chicken and some liquid anti-inflammatory in the form of wine with Jessica.  A good day indeed.
