Training Log: Entry 2239
Axle front squat
Notes: Gave this a try after yesterday's press workout taught me I have little experience with heavy weight in the rack position. The axle feels very comfortable in the rack position, but I'm still very immobile. I ended up pulling a muscle in my left calf on the first warm-up set, so I wasn't willing to push too stupidly hard. I think my swollen knee pressed into my calf and caused it to crunch.
It was a slight rest pause for the set of 10. I started cross armed, then switched to rack. For the second set of 3 at 276, I tried using straps, but it put strain on the bicep.
Ultimately, I like this. I think I'll be rotating it with SSB squats.
Reverse hyper 270
Standing ab wheel
Notes: Performed between sets of front squats. Trying to switch things up.
Notes: Good day for continentals. Hit everything on the first try. 206 and 226 were brutal, but zero drops. Blacked out a few times; something to watch out for.
General notes: Woke up at 193.2. Knee swelling is greatly reduced at present. Right glute is a little achy for some reason.
