a christmas workout

After finishing work for good Friday last week, I used my new found free time to do some crazy things like waking up at 5 in the morning to play basketball for 2-3 hours at a time. This takes some getting used to. My legs are totally drained, yet I still feel compelled to squat like I'm fighting to hold onto an abandoned house. Sometimes it feels like a loosing battle. Next time you're completely pasted try doing as many front squats as you can (full depth) with 60kgs/132lbs. It doesn't seem like much weight, but it wears you down fast when you're used to low rep ranges. I was disappointed to find I could only do 26 before wussing out.

front squat 60*26,10,10
