Felt good to be squatting again.

Had to not squat the past couple weeks due to circumstance, and honestly when I got out of bed I actually felt like just going back to bed and not squatting. But no, 2 weeks is too many, so off I went.

And it felt pretty good.

The front squats continue to be a good thing. I may not continue with them as an emphasis, but I do think it’d be worthwhile for me to keep them around in some respect for some time. I continue to work on keeping myself as upright as possible, which when I do, really works what I need. I could even see myself starting to do something like squat, pause squat, and front squat, then some hamstring focus, and done.

Speaking of hamstring, I’m still trying to “get it” on RDL’s. I upped the weight slightly, but I’m still trying to get form and technique. I actually did hit a few strides where I felt very much like I was working hams and not just my back — which I’m really trying to not do. After the 3×8 I did actually feel something in my hamds and glutes, so maybe I’m starting to get it. But I can’t articulate exactly what I did to feel that so I can repeat it, so I’m a ways off from “getting it”, still, it’s a step forward.

After all those, the leg presses and such… by the time I got the extensions and curls my legs were pretty spent. All in all tho, a good day.
