Another day at the box

Back squats

5x, 5x, 5x, 5x

Top load:125 (5); 135 (2)

Note: 1 rep max is 145

Nothing spectacular in the box today. I'm still trying to figure out how to get to that top load faster so I'm not so tired at the end, but still get a good warm up. I guess that takes practice. I nearly killed myself on my first attempt at 135. I'm trying so hard not to think, I didn't and started the squat WITHOUT a big breath and NO core tension. According to Christine, it looked nasty. I don't recommend trying that one at home without spotters....
My back didn't like it either, but luckily no injuries.
Here are my faces from this a.m. Pretty damn funny.
