Today was my second week of Front Loaded Yoke Bar Box Squats to work on upper back strength/tightness. My back and hamstrings need a lot of work in general (like most people), so I also worked in GHR deadlifts (something I started seeing from Julia Ladewski - video below), and followed that with regular GHRs, and Chin-Ups. No video today, but next week I'm going to work to get back on track with getting more video of all these movements..
