First time squatting since Sept 12, felt good. Really feel it in the hammys.

After the first set with the gripper I realized my left arm is way to pooched from yesterdays attempt to reverse a 5" x 1/4" square. I really can only handle those bends once every week or so and had already tweaked it by bending the 5.5" the day after the 6". Stupid.

I also attempted to DU a 6" gr5 and couldn't. I need to work on some 3/16" and 1/4" stock and learn some form for this. It feels like there might be a flexibility issue here as well.
