Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Carefully squatting

leave a comment »

Back to doing squat after the tendon pain went away. Today before doing anything I did some mobility movement to warm up. Then I did front squat using as good a form as I could manage. Hopefully by doing the lift the right way I won’t incur the pain like before.

A few rep PRs were achieved today. High-rep sets of squat or deadlift are hard in their own unique way. They get your heart pumping like no other exercises.

Keep on grinding and learning.
