Another good session in the bank. Squats felt pretty good although I could tell my form was starting to break down towards the end. When I'm going for max weight I don't get to bent out of shape about this. If your form doesn't break down a little, then it's not a max weight.
If you don't know what a hack squat is, it is something like a behind the back deadlift. The bar starts on the ground and I stand in front of it so the bar is touching my calves. I then squat down grab the bar and stand up with it. The position of the bar and the position of my knees puts most of the stress on my quads. Right where I want it.
The interns, James and Jace, and I hooked up the rope to the tow hooks on my truck. We then took turns pulling it 30 yards then pushing it 30 yards. Two was more than enough to put some fire in my lungs and forearms.
Later today I'm going to post about upcoming diet modifications since the fat loss challenge is rapidly coming to a close. And not a moment too soon.
