Here is todays Squat workout. I set my training max low enough so that I would be hitting double digits on my squats because I have no idea when the last time was that I did a set of squats over 5 reps.
- Defrancos Agile 8 followed up by some greasing the groove for the bottom of my squat. Ever since I started using Mobility WOD and Kelly Starrett's book my squat depth has improved greatly.
I previously had a lot of back issues. I would always hear the cue to arch my back when I squat and reach my ass back. All this was doing was putting me in over extension, then once I would hit my limit for my depth my back would quickly round. It took many back injuries and set backs for me to realize this.
On to the workout
** The high reps were a big eye opener. I was expecting to get more out of 135, but my muscular endurance just isn't there.
Ab Wheel Rollouts
**These are great for letting me know where my core should be when it is in a stable position and not be over extended
