So today is ME Box Squat. I have been looking forward to this workout for over a week. I want to bring my squat up so bad it hurts. But…
Today playing intramural soccer, I broke my foot. Particularly, about 2.5" from the tips of my toes, and dislocated a toe.
Ok, now I am not going to let this take me out, so heres the plan:
2 weeks upper body specialization. This will allow my lower body to completely recover. I will seperate my workouts into push and pull. 4 days/week. Also, specializing on grip work. During this time I will continue to stretch my legs and hip to keep loose. (squatting is usually the only thing that really gets my hips to open)
During the second week, I will see if I can add some high rep body weight squats into the mix, and see how they feel.
Hopefully I will be better by the end of week 2 and can begin to squat again. So, I will do a 2 week rotation with primary emphasis on lower body.
I will focus on box squats, since they are easier to recover from and your body can handle a greater volume of box squatting as opposed to regular squatting. 3 days lower body, 1 day upper. 1 day deadlift/clean/snatch, depending on mood, 1 day box squatting, 1 day front squatting on a low box. 1 full upper body day per week.
These are just my preliminary thoughts, as I haven’t sat down and outlined my plan yet, but what do you guys think??? Feedback would be appreciated.
