This workout ended a lot better than the last one. I think what happened on Tuesday was that while I did sip orange juice I didn’t hydrate enough on top of that and I got really dehydrated. This time I drank a shite ton of liquids.

These first set of sumos were supposed to be up to the knee but I was inspired by Ben Rice to try pausing these at knee. These were pretty brutal on the low back and these pauses weren’t super strict and sometimes I missed the knee. Still learning sumo style.

On the second set of sumos I realized I was dropping my hips a lot lower than they needed to go. Once I started higher the movement became quite a bit easier. Still have a lot of work to do to get this movement down.
