After a few days off from training I was back into the swing of things with Chris and an early morning strength session.
Chris led us through a routine of mobility exercises. I made sure though not to over stretch. Keeping any hold for no more then 8 seconds. I replaced lateral squats for normal squats with emphasise on pushing the knees out to get a little stretch.
We had squats today, lovely squats. Since there were only 3 of us and all girls we shared the rack and were given 4 minutes rest between sets. We did our usual 3 warm up sets with the bar and two with added weight.
Then 2×5 for strength and one set rep-in out.
Chris noticed while squatting that I was able to do very good oly squats, which is probably because of my passion for the oly lifts but when heavy he wanted me to work on the glutes coming into play more. This seemed to happen quite naturally as the weight got heavier.
Chris’s finisher was gymnastic influenced. It was frog stands to planches. Something I find very hard!!!
