    after just a week or so of doing box squats, got a new PR today on free squat.

    old 235 -> new 275

    and I feel like I could pretty easily do more

    300 here I come :noes:

    While I seriously doubt that one week of box squatting is soley responsible for that PR, they are still good things to do
