A busy day with the family but did a bunch of stretching and SMR with the stick. I really need to work on my hips and my back squatting form, today my lower back is pretty sore, and I know once it got a bit heavy I wasn't keeping my back flat enough when i was in the bottom position. I am thinking about going a bit slower on my warmup sets and really force good posture at the bottom of my squat, I'm going to re-watch Greg's squat instruction video.
