Like my class wall squats? They loved em!
This past week was all about working through some sickness. I got bronchitis a few weeks back and I took care of it right away. BUT I’ve still felt like crap somedays as my immune system is trying to build itself back up. So I’ve had my on days and I’ve had my off days. Thankfully nowadays I’m not one to pressure myself into going to the gym if I don’t feel good. I really do love working out so if my body says don’t go, I don’t go. Simple as that. Since I didn’t feel great a handful of days, I made the most of my on days and tried to go out as hard as possible. And since my knee has been bugging me lately, I’ve started to squash to a box so I’m only at 90 degrees while it heals itself up. Turns out, doing higher squats is my new favorite right now. Sorry, CrossFit. I know that’s not your thang.
Sunday – Rest day!
Monday – This was the first time I tried box squats. If you’ve never done box squats before, they’re awesome. Set up a box behind you to go to your preferred depth, I went to 90 degrees, sit back on to the box to release tension in legs then start squeezing your butt and stand. Please understand, I’m writing this down in the simplest terms ever so feel free to read up or watch some youtube stuff to help with your form. Speaking of youtube…I just watched about a bazillion interviews for 50 Shades of Grey. Just saying. Just cause.
