Today was a very light lower body assistance day. I'm still feeling pretty beat up and I think today will really help my recovery going into the meet. I focused a lot on mobility and making sure my squat technique is solid.
Wall Squat: 3x6
My toes and nose were right up against the wall. I then squat down. Doing it right up against the wall really forces my knees out and my hips back. It's not a true-to-form squat since I don't get any forward lean, but it helps to open up my hips.
Squat: 3x5 @ 135
Leg Press: 3x12
Reverse Hyper: 3x12
GH Hyper: 3x10
Walking on Curve Treadmill: 15 min.
Everything else was just to get some new blood to my legs and help with the recovery and rebuilding process. Very unsexy, but hey, a tiger's gotta earn his stripes.
