I’ve never been 100% sure I was going below parallel while squatting so today was the day to be 110% sure. I widened my stance another 4inches and pointed my toes out about 45* to make sure I was hitting low as possible. Man I gotta tell ya it was super hard and super painful, I need to work on the old hip flexability.
I need some work on form at this depth but at least I know I’m getting low enough now.
Box Squats, Low Box
This is by far the lowest box I’ve squated on and it puts me well below parallel. My hip flexors were already burned from the squats and this wasn’t helping at all.
GHR on Lat Pulldown(weight is assistance)
Standing Calf Raises
It’s apparent I need to work on my really deep strength on squats for a while so I don’t forsee any PR’s for a while but at least I know what I’m doing will be legal.
