Strength, week 2 part 1

Spent a lot of time warming up today, with plenty of active stretches and assistance exercises, trying to open up the hips and loosen the hamstrings.

Back Squat x 5: 115 - 135 - 155
Back Squat x 21: 115
Bench Press x 5: 95 - 115 - 135
Bench Press x 21: 100
False grip static hang: 4 x 15 sec.

The 155 started to feel heavy. I wasn't pitching forward, but I do use my left leg more than my right in coming up. Need to watch that, and figure out how to come up more symmetrically. The bench press was fine - I knocked out the 21 unbroken, though it did burn somewhat.

The static hangs hurt like a sonuvabitch. HOW do people maintain false grip? It's inhuman!
