since school has ended here at ucsd, the gym is pretty quiet for the most part except for the regulars that stay for summer school and other patrons that come on a regular basis. so i decided to do some squats… then figuring i had the space and time, i decided to try out box squats, thinking i was going to just breeze through a few sets with them. the box i used as about 2-3 inches below parallel for me and i was squatting 225 at the time for good measure. i was lucky to do more than 2 reps. i have been humbled–i had to drop down to 185 to accomplish a set of 5 before i racked the weight and drank a good 1/5 of my water bottle. i just wanted to get that off my chest lol.
humbled and enlightened (again, by t-mag and westside),
