notes: have not gone this heavy on close stance before, it was sort of awkward. belt felt awkward in the hole. I actually stopped each set not because of legs giving out or core giving out, but because my ankles were getting the weirdest WARM sensation, so I didn’t want to hurt myself. After the third set, my ankles felt warm and … itchy… so I might mention this to my massage guy as well. I did not realize this would be so stressful on my ankles. It wasn’t bad, it was just a warning sign.
