When there are a dozen other squat racks free, why do you have to pick the one next to me?

Anyways…

First lower/leg day of the new cycle.

Generally happy with the results. I do want to get back to low-bar squatting someday, but for now this is fine. I’ve said in the past that adding front squats after “back” squats would be good assistance work — and today I started doing that. I like it. It’s humbling.

Calf work continues to be one of those things that I appreciate more and more. My feet are so much happier for the stretch and the strength.

Skullcrushers were a bit different. I did them on a normal/straight olympic bar, and worked to bring the bar to my forehead — so my elbows actually pushed towards my feet a bit instead of being a pure hinge; had to do this to avoid the uprights/hooks. I started to think to myself that maybe I should have just programmed in JM Press instead. Next time.

And the usual first-week stuff: 3/fail, 2-3 minutes rest between sets. I foresee this mesocycle being grueling as the weeks go on. 🙂
