Day 122 of 365 - Lower

Warm Up
Elliptical - 10 minutes at resistance 10
Foam roller and mobility with 12k kettlebell

Work
Deadlifts - 5 x 45, 110, 125, 150lbs
Overhead Squats to Box - 5 x 3/3 x 45lbs
Kneeling Ab Wheel - 5 x 3 x Part way out

Notes
Leg soreness has mostly subsided. I felt really good, until I failed to stand from my first overhead squat. Whoops. A little stretching let me force the sets, but everything is misaligned from my legs getting so sore. I need some soft tissue work and stretching before bed today and tomorrow.

I found my ab wheel while cleaning out the gym. I cannot even do it kneeling right now. I am going build up on my deadlift day for awhile. I pretty much NEVER do direct ab work, so this is going to hurt.

Having a rest day on Sunday is fitting my life really well. I'll definitely be up late tonight.
