Lots of calf and ankle mobility work today… and a lot more ahead of me 😉 Ugh, it’s probably my least favorite thing everrrrrrrr. It hurts so bad, but I know I need to do it — They are so tight and fucked up and it stops me from ever feeling stable at a good squat depth. Meh. ::complain train::
Anyway, making a goal to work on it every day for the month of February to see how much of an improvement I can make. I watched a lot of videos from K-Star yesterday and I put them into practice today. IT BURNS.
4oz breakfast sausage
3 cups of kale sauteed with bacon fat
1/2 an orange
15 minutes rolling my calves and ankles on the rumble roller and practicing holding my squat (without lifting shoes)…. ugh… so awkward
2 pieces of string cheese
1 cup of rice w/ butter
Recovery Work & Technique Drills
Nice view from the squat rack today 🙂
Mobility: 15 minutes my calves and ankles on the bar set up pictured above. OUCH! SO TERRIBLE. But, the bottom of my squat did feel much easier to fall into today.
Bench: 1×5 @ 20K, 3×3 @ 30K Focusing primarily on my set up again. Everything felt good and tighter than it has been.
Squat: 1×5@20K, 1×5@30k, 1×5@40K, 3×3@60K. Really drilling the new walk out and set up cues from Matt. I am happy with the rhythm that my walk it out taking on, and felt pretty good about my depth today. It will be hard work to be consistent with it as the weight gets heavier.
Friday night pizzaaaaaa YUM!
Something really goooood. Not sure what.
I started my period today… and I am considering making a chocolate cake honestly 😉
