Back Squats - Sets of 8 & GHD Raises...

Back Squat 1x8 - 250lbs
Back Squat 5x8 - 185lbs

GHD Raise - 3x10

My plan was to back squat 4x8 at 250lbs today. After my first set on of my coaches said my stance is too narrow and I'm using mostly quads. That's fine but you will plateau earlier than if you work in your hamstrings and glutes. 

So I told my ego to screw and dropped the weight down to 185lbs. I did 5x8 while keeping my feet wider and working on driving my knees out. I also did some flute-ham raises as accessory work. 

One step forward - two steps back. It's all good.
