    just got done my legs/cardio day. I'm going to start squatting more and separating cardio.

    Squats:

    BW x 10

    135 x 10

    185 x 10

    185 x 10

    10 min HIIT on a 4 degree incline, mostly running 3min run, 1 walk, 3 run, 1 walk 2 run. It was far more grueling than the 20 minutes i did last week, and the 30 i did 2 weeks ago.
