8-24-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Bar Box Squat

Lower back is almost at 100%! What makes it even better, MY WAIST IT GETTING SMALLER! I can fasten my belt 2 notches tighter! I have recently been keeping my carb intake to a minimum, 30 g or less, and it has been paying off. I am currently working on getting in the best shape of my life and I feel I am on the right track!

The low box and awkward position the SS Yoke bar tries to put you in made the squats difficult, but technique allowed me to push heavier and heavier. Having the belt tighter than usual allowed me to push my stomach against it even harder, allowing me to stay stable. My legs felt strong. I have yet to feel any decline in strength due to my recent weight loss and diet change. I will continue to train my ass off and make sure I get the correct nutrients in my body to ensure I achieve my goals.
