Teaching The DL
It took a little convincing, but I successfully convinced my 16 year old daughter to come to the gym for the second time. Today I completed the middle workout for Week 3 of my current StrongLifts Advanced cycle which included warming up with foam rolling, stretching, body weight squats and front squats. The main sets were front squats, standing overhead press and dead lifts.
My daughter, still quite sore from the Monday session, found the wonders of the foam roller and its role (no pun intended) in alleviating pain and promoting mobility! She seemed very confident on squats and did a great job learning the OHP and DLs. I sure hope she keeps it up and comes with me Friday–I would hate for the DOMS to be for nothing.
Good luck to the Tampa Bay Lightning and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
