Day 285 of 365 - Front Squat

Warm Up
Elliptical - 10 minutes at level 12, cool down to < 120bpm
Foam Roller, stretching and mobility with 12k kettlebell

Front Squats - 5 x BW, 45; 3 x 90, 105, 120lbs
Axle Deadlifts - 8 x 140, 140; 6 x 165lbs

Front squats are harder for me without the box. As a result, I started this cycle too heavy to get any momentum going for the lift. I'll jump back by 10% or so next cycle.

Deadlifts were pretty easy.

I used the pressure cooker to make chili this evening, starting from dried beans. It worked out even better than I had hoped. A pound of dried beans makes a massive amount of food, way more than I expected. The beans are tender and soft, much preferable to what comes out of a can. They are also far, far superior to any beans I ever cooked in a pot on the stove.

I finally cleaned my yoga mat and have it airing out. I am interested to see if it is less slippery during tomorrow's class.
