Our Safety Squat Bar finally arrived from Elite Fitness. I’m psyched. I wasn’t very psyched about it being delivered to the accounting office and having to lug it through the Memorial Union to the parking garage. Ah, well, so is life.
I did a few sets, and it was awful. That bar makes me feel pathetically weak.
SSB box squat 135x2x3, 225x2x2, 225x3x3
I’ll definitely be messing around with this during my next workout too, maybe some full or upper-back good mornings.
I also went to my first Iowa State wrestling meet. (Also the first real-life wrestling meet I’ve been to at any level.) I must say that even though I don’t know anything about it, it’s a pretty interesting/entertaining sport. I just kept expecting guys to throw on the armbar or the rear naked choke, to no avail. I did see a few guys get pinned, which is fun when it’s the opposition. I think I’ll probably be going to more of these.
