Today was all about the Front Squat.  Ever done it….. correctly?    I’m still not doing it correctly.  See, my mobility isn’t where it needs to be and I can’t get my hands far enough back to get the bar onto my chest/front shoulders, so the instructor let me “cheat” today and do the front arms crossed method.  I’m not sure if my “testing” weight counts if I wasn’t doing it like everyone else, but I front squated more weight today in a one-rep max than I’ve ever done before (like in my life).  And my back is telling me I probably did a deplorable job with my form, as it’s a big sore.  But to put this in true perspective lest you think I’m bragging or I don’t know my place…my one-rep max was what most of the other folks in the class started with to work up to their own one-rep max.  I’m good with that, I’ve still there.   I’ll go back Monday for more!

  1. I am recovering from working with a tractor last week my back, hips, shoulders everything hurts try to be careful man and allow your body to heal, Being a loan master on a sailboat requires manually dexterity, endurence under pressure on and on. I rather think sailing with two or three is far better and safer for everyone if they have their captains certs and some experience.
