    Standing single leg calf raise (from a 5 inch block)

    Front squats only tonight. Shoulders/traps were too sunburnt for back squats.

    No real theory behind using the bands. Bought them last week and was just keen to try them out.

    Glad to see you step outside the box, the only way to know is experience something for yourself.

    Effort is looking very nice.

    Certainly different. Looking forward to incorporating them more though and progressing to stronger bands.
