Squat Monday: 1st January 2018

Starting the new year right.

Like most people, I've had several days of boozy celebration which I now need to offset with a vigorous return to training. I began with some cambered bar squats. Experienced lifters know that squatting is a valuable exercise regardless of your sport. While I will not be competing in any three lift meets for the foreseeable future, a stronger squat means a stronger deadlift, stone pick, axle clean... in fact it directly or indirectly benefits virtually every exercise or event requiring lower body strength. So dropping them from my routine would be a bad idea. Instead I squeeze into a rack and use my old mate, the cambered bar, to get the job done.
