Lower accessories and GPP
Since I decided to switch my dynamic day to max effort on Sunday, I figured it was best to just work on technique and mobility since I was having some issues with my form.
Lateral squats with mini red bands 3 x 10
Side steps with mini red bands around the ankle 3 x 20
1. SSB on a low box 5 x 6 (180 lbs)
2. Leg press (close stance) 3 x 25
3. Sled drags taking wide steps (as if you were skiing) 3 sets
4. Band ham curls 3 x 20
The SSB is definitely a love/hate relationship. It's made to sit high on the traps and force more weight forward on the body, making it feel and look awkward. It targets the upper and lower back muscles, as well as the glutes and hamstrings -- with my squat, I have difficulties at the bottom because my back is not strong enough, which can also cause your back to fold over. So I think this is a great movement to strengthen those back muscles and help prevent difficulties coming up from the squat or folding over from happening.
