Warmup: Foot MFR, Toe Pulls, ASLR, Segmental Rolling, Pressups, Frog Squats, Indian Clubs
–Took a long time to warm up. Stared at the walls a lot. Got some good heavy breathing. I’ve used the same cycles for warmup for a long time, and I feel ready to go.
Box Squats (IPF Metal suit bottoms, barefoot, 12″)
–Keiser rack is very hard to take the bar with an Ivanko bar. It’s too almost too narrow or not wide enough to get out on the collars. And the J-hooks are very deep on these racks. Probably not a purchase I would make.
Dimel DL (out of the rack)
135+205 air 5×5
–Quick 2nd option when I couldn’t go off the floor with the air.
SLDL / Ab Dolly / Triangle Pushdown
60 1×8/8, 80 2×8/8 – off 12″ box
–a little higher than preferred, but working through what we have for now
35 air – 3×15
–Air is measured in PSI
–Tried to get this sorry York GHR set up properly, but so far, it’s worthless
Tall Kneeling Indian Club Movement # 2 – 3×10, 10s/rep
Packed Lat Stretch 3x30s/30s
Felt really good. Squats and Dimels were fast.
Still getting settled. Getting in some training definitely helps.
I enjoy cycling in using the air, but the rack is not made for powerlifting. I plan on staying away from squats for a while anyway, so my ME moves will be DLs and GMs where being out on the collars won’t feel so weird.
