Day 11 - Feeling Aged

I've had some lower back issues that recently resurfaced and I knew going into this that squatting 10,000+ pounds a day to 1,000,000 was not going to be easy. Today was rough - every rep pulled on the hip flexor and lower back, affecting the groove and making "the hole" (the bottom of the squat) shallow... I tried high-bar. I tried low-bar - it didn't really matter.

Needless to say, I called it a day pretty early, getting in only about 8,000lbs. 121,975lbs so far.

Tonight, I stretched and iced. Tomorrow, some "Atomic Balm" and a lot of warm-up sets will be on the menu.
