  14. 4:53

    Really working on getting my ass to the grass with each squat.

  15. 5:15.

    I can only make 30# with what I've got at the temp house.

    I had a break-through on the squats today. Two weeks ago a friend & level 1 instructor checked my form because I've been having knee pain from them. He said that even though my toes were slightly out (correct position), at the lowest point of the squat my knees were too far inward. (I perceived them as being "straight" or "in line.") He said to get my knees out as far as they would go (keeping my feet in their "normal," neutral, toes slightly out position). I've done it that way a few times since then but just today, when really trying to get up some speed, my butt dipped really low as part of the natural movement through the squat. I felt the difference right away and it made perfect sense. So that's how people get "butt to floor" like I see in the comments! And, I have to say, they were actually easier to push out of from that position. (Doesn't make sense but it's true.) So, if anyone is struggling, squat down and see if you can butterfly your knees outward. If you can, you probably should try a few like that and see how it goes. Knees out is what makes room for your butt to drop down. (Obviously I'm not an expert, though.)

    All military push ups. Even though my shoulder is ganked up from burpees yesterday but I was determined, no matter how slow it made my time.

  16. 5:47 I'm not sure if I did 7 or 8 rounds and 3/4 were bpu and a 45#bar for squats.

  17. 4:45
    1st 10 boy push-ups

    20 lbs on front squat
    I figure I did 22 boy up total

  21. 5:05…I may have possibly done 8 rounds. I messed upy count along the way somewhere.

  22. 5:18 45# bar. Did two rounds on knees. Did this after 5-24 workout. Phew!

  23. 4:24

    A day behind. Holy cats that was a good one! Haven't been feeling well and I could definitely tell.
