11-18-13 – Squats

Felt good walking into HPF today. After a successful Week 3, I was pumped to start my new cycle and ready to get strong(er). Warm ups went well, and going into my working sets I decided that since it was Week 1 and light weight that I would try to work on my depth as much as possible. First working set of 130 for 10 was easy, and I nearly touched my ass to the ground on each rep. I moved to 160 for 10, and then 190 for 10, and they all felt light. The rest of the workout went well, and I feel like I got a lot done today. The biggest challenge today would probably have to have been the prowler, which I always struggle with, and which had me on the ground gasping for air by the last set.
