I hope you like squats.  I got squats for you.

Tonight, the plan was death by squats. Light squats, but lots of them. And no belt.

warmup: dorsiflexions, TKEs

squat shoes and knee sleeves on

warmup squats: bar x 5, 135 x 3

Low Bar Squats (60 sec rests)

215 x 3
215 x 3
215 x 3
215 x 3

notes: yup, 12 sets of 3, with 60 seconds rest in between. counts as cardio, right??

High Bar Squats (2-3 min rests)

230 x 6
230 x 6
230 x 6

Low Bar Paused Squats (1 sec pause at the bottom, 2-3 min rests in between sets)

200 x 8
200 x 8
200 x 8

Weighted Planks (long rests)

25 lbs x 30 seconds
25 lbs x 30 sec
25 lbs x 30 sec

notes: the rests had to be long because I had to wait for someone to keep the plate on me – I didn’t want to have to awkwardly put it on and then get into position, and then dump it off at the end
