My Ride: nothing
tell me about it man. I lost some squat strength myself and am dealing with a groin injury.

Focusing on flexibility and form:
5 min treadmill warm up
Front Squat: 12x45, 12x95, 12x95
Back Squat: 12x95, 12x95, 12x95
Chest Press: 12x45's, 12x55's, 12x55's followed by bench press only bar until fail.
10lb Med Ball twists w/ friend (toss back and forth twisting at hips) I wish my gym had a 20lb med ball
2x15 Leg throw downs w/friend
2x10 tricep dips
10min Bike lvl 10
Sucks to be way below where I was lifting at my peak but I'm glad to be back at it without pain.
