Squaterday

Pretty much a carbon copy of last week.  Knees didn't feel great; back was good.  I think next week I will do a few minutes on an exercise bike to warm up my knees before squatting to see if that helps.

Managed to work my way up to a 5 plater, so all in I would say it was an OK day in the squat rack.

No time for anything else though.  Just squats and GTFO.

My knees don't even let me get in & out of chairs pain free if I'm not warmed up.

I know that feeling. 

After my 1 hour commute to work most days it's a struggle to get out of the car and walk across the parking lot.

I think next week I am going back to warming up with pulldowns instead of flyes.

Lisa likes the pec flye warmup because pulldowns tire her out too much before benching, but for me I find the pulldowns are a much better warmup for me and they don't tire me out at all.  I think the lat pump might be a big help...
