July 5, 2009 Squat and Deadlift

July 5, 2009 Squat and Deadlift

front box squats 8x2 @ 50kgs
  • avoiding bands for now, sticking to the basics as I try to recover.  I hurt my back last year and wasn't really pushing that much with regards to squats and deads.  Chose front squats to change things a bit, forcing me to keep a more upright torso.  Would be sticking to front squats for the next three weeks and hope to push max to 70 to 80kg range.
