Rectus femoris

Back Squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps

For those that have a current 3 rep max, you will choose a weight and attempt to maintain through all 5 sets.  For those that do not have a current 3 rep max, you can take as many sets as you would like to find that weight.

My hip flexor is irritated again. I think it was from the front squats + box jumps from Saturday. I was very mindful to really warm up my hips before attempting any back squats. But the minute I racked the bar on my upper back and stood up (not even squatting!!! just taking it out of the rack!) I could feel the little shot of electricity in my hip into my lower back.

105 is light weight for me, but all 4 sets of 3 were very difficult for me. My 1RM is 130# and I know I've been getting stronger since.

I kinda regret doing the strength-bias. Those 4 weeks of heavy heavy heavy really fucked me up. I've never really "recovered." It's almost like I've been losing strength.

I may consider just doing body weight met-cons and stay away from heavy days for awhile. I'm going to confer with Zeb and Diso about it.

Injury makes me sad. There is a constant dull ache in my lower back and left hip. I should go ice again.
