I am not a fan of squats

That's not me btw

I don’t like squats. I know why I do them, because they are “one of the big 4” in weight training. But I suck at them, I can’t push much weight. I don’t know if it’s my form, or my weird long legs, bad hip, or what. For days after squat day my thighs hurt so bad it’s hard to walk up and down the stairs. I think for the next few weeks I am going to skip the squats and just do leg press and dumb bell lunges.

Now dead lifts? I heart dead lifts. I can’t wait for my next training day on Saturday.

It was a short workout over lunch.

Since I moved out of the house into and apartment I wasn’t able to continue with my previous home gym workouts.
