Workout – Monday June 19th, 2017 – Today was a day to get after it. Started with some low step ups to kind of reset and get the right things firing, on to front squats from there, the goal a nice slow negative, with a good pause at the bottom, wanted to work on being stronger at the bottom and coming out. Then some low incline dumbbell press paired with a thumb up side lateral raise, really liking the thumb up version. To finish off some side lying external rotator work and some incline tricep work as active rest for the rotator cuff work.
