Back Squat 5x3,

Ben points out that I have a very quaddy squat so I am going to start doing the box squats he showed me a few times a week to teach my nervous system some things about the buttocks.

It might be time to use a heavier kettlebell, did I hear we had 44# kettlebells now

I could have used the 56lb bell I think.
