181019- Gotta Rock the Front Squat!

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!

  • 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.
