Squat: 95 lbs, 5 sets of 5
- I wanted to try these "deep squats" that everyone had been talking about, so I went down in weight significantly to ensure I did them correctly and safely. I definitely felt that "pride" issue about using less weight for (almost) the same exercise
Dumbell Calf-Raises: 100 lbs x 10, 110 lbs x 10, 120 lbs x 10, 110lbs x 10, 100lbs x 10
Hanging Leg Lifts: 5 sets of 5, no added weight
Reverse Crunches: 5 sets of 10 - I hope I was doing these right
I also tried to figure out the kinda twisting "axe-chopping" simulation exercise on one of the big cable machines, for obliques...but I don't think I was doing it right, so I stopped. Any advice or video links from anyone on this?
The only time I ever really felt any back discomfort was BETWEEN squat sets. Like going under or coming out from under the bar.
