Overall, very active, productive day of training. I did the box squats because I was feeling sore from some high rep squatting over the weekend. That combined with the long row yesterday my hips were a little off.
I like doing box squats as a hip reset. They really make you focus on your positions and groove a really nice squatting pattern. I try to throw them in when I’m feeling a little beat up and I know that moving around more will help. This certainly did the trick, when I ran the sprints my legs felt great. I had a good stride and was happy with how it felt.
Jumping has been something that I have been trying to mix more of in. It helps me “stay athletic” and I feel good doing it. My friend, Harrison is a freaky athlete so it’s nice to screw around and jump over stuff with him for a little change of pace workout finisher.
