Me, Tom, JB, David Silver from 90210, Zuck
Warmup: Foot MFR, Toe Pulls, Press-ups, Segmental Rolling
SSB Box Squat (barefoot)
495+mini x1+pinned (high box)
495 x4 (high box)
–This is a back-off week on Pavel’s program, so I tried barefoot. Haven’t done it in a while. Got the work sets that I needed, and I didn’t notice that I curled my toes. If I did, I could’t feel it.
JB took video, so maybe I will be able to post them at some point. I was pleased to see how low this box really is as I am easily below parallel. I was suprised how low it was.
Adding a mini was a lot heavier than I thought it would be. I will definitely use it the next 2 weeks when we go back to the Spider Bar, which is a much easier lift for me than the SSB.
David got better @ spreading the floor. Both him and Zucker are a work in progress squatting high @ around 2 wheels + some change.
Rack Pull (mid-shin, double overhand with straps)
Singles up to 500
–Felt like Kirk Nowak.
Haven’t DL’d in a while and missing another Saturday this week, I wanted to get it in.

You mentioned training barefoot and not curling the toes; is this a mistake then? Should people try to keep the toes straighter and push for the met-heads instead to create the “short-foot” posture? I think I curl my toes too much when I lift in my Vibrams…
