I love squats, almost as much as Maura love bench press. That is probably because it is the only lift that has been going my way lately... Maura and I got our squat training in a little early today thanks to MLK day. We had the chance to train along side of some of the Press Gym lifters we don't usually cross paths with. Mitch Edlestein was squatting some pretty huge weight today. Angela Simmons was doing some front squats. Jo Rivette showed up to do some deadlifting. Here is how it all went down for me...
~Lifting at 11am feels different than lifting at 7pm...
~Wow, first time for this lift... these were really difficult. 265 felt oppressive, simply walking out the weight was a real chore. Seriously, walking out the weight was more difficult that the squat. Weird.
~I suck at these.
~Kettlebell French Twists 16, 20, 24, 24... Decline bench with a 25lb plate. These are actually getting easier.
Squatting made Maura and I super hungrey! We went to Granite City in Roseville for Bison Burgers. What a great way to spend MLK day!
