Could it be? Is it possible? Lower body work? I believe so:
Speed Box Squats:
5xBW, 45, 95, 135, 135, 135, 155, 155
2x12xBW+95lbs each leg
a. Pull Throughs: Grey Bandx12, 12, 12, 12
b. Standing Crunches: Grey Bandx30, 30, 30, 30
I'm just going to trust the process for these speed squats. The weight feels pathetic, but at least I'm back into squats.
I'm getting serious on these pull throughs. I had some mega tension on that band.
My poor abs, I'm going to pay for those 120 reps.
Cavalier - It took me a while to figure it out. I knew I had seen your name somewhere and then I saw it.... you post a lot in my good buddy's log, Canada_K. I don't post much in there because if I have something to say to Kent I just pick up the phone. Now to answer your question, I typically go beyond parallel. In fact I have a video of myself hitting ass to grass with 185lbs for 20 reps. That bench rack you saw I only use for benching. I squat in my cage, so yes, I can set the pins to break parallel. To also answer your box question, I have made a whole bunch of homemade boxes with various heights. Today I set my box at 15" which takes me right at parallel, but not quite breaking. I wanted to go easy on the freshly recovered back.
hde128 - I hear you man. I REALLY hurt myself about 16 months ago with poor squatting form. I rebuilt my squat from scratch and I think I've got pretty good form now. Now it's time to push the weight.
I got a hold of the PLing team guy today. They aren't getting together until after the summer. I left him my phone number to call me when they get going again.
Cavalier, I will post some pics of the home gym sometime. I just made a really cool dead lifting platform.
