04/03 DE Squat

Box Squat w/Avg Bands 205x4x2, 225x4x2
Stingray Squats 185x3x5
Ab and Back crap, all random for high Reps

Very good night on the Box Squats, absolutely no back tightness and the reps were fast. This is the best i have felt on speed squats in a long time. I took 30 second rests and was sweating my clams off by the end of it. Then came the Stingray Front squats, god i suck at these!!! The limiting factor seems to be the fact that this sucker digs into my biceps like a mother. Next time i may just do regular front squats and see how that goes. I did these ass to grass with a 1 second pause down in the hole, this made it a bit harder as well but felt muscles that havent been hit like thatin a long time. I plan on rotating Front Squats and Speed DLs on this day to prepare for the meet, time will tell if this pays off. As previously stated the Ab and Back crap was all random but included ab pulldowns with various bands, back extensions, band GM's, etc....i was pretty gassed after the squatting with short rests that i really had no motivation to do this. I stuck it out on the Abs as i feel my lack of lower back pain is attributed to the extensive Ab work i have been doing lately to address my imbalance and perceived weakness. Well thats about it, back to work and answer some stupid ass questions for stupid ass customers......l8r

Glad to hear your back is feeling better. Good workout. Where's that plan you mentioned for the meet (j/k)? I searched Ticketmaster for the New Englad Record Breakers tickets, but nothing came up. Have you had any results?

Yeah, im quite happy with the back situation now, the tightness thing sucked!!! i guess i guessed right on the weakness and the Abs worked...woo-hoo!!!
No luck in the tickets, i keep checking but havent seen anything yet....I have my DL approach done, now i want to devise a nice bench routine for the same time period....that one is in the works, when it is done i will post both.....
