You better make sure that's 3-ply. Gotta call in the heavy duty stuff after that meal. It might be best to just go with canvas.

It's a good warm up combo, since hip flexor stretching before squats is almost always a good idea.
I tried this out today. Squats felt different as I was warming up, so I pulled the weight back a bit (~15%). That warm up combo is a winner. I was able to get full depth a lot easier and things just felt right. We'll see if I can ramp the weight back up over the next few weeks.

Wow that seems like a heck of a lot of food!

Yeah, it caught me by surprise too, Chris. It took maybe 3-4 sessions of squatting while using that as a warm up for things to feel "right" again. Things didn't feel wrong in the initial sessions, just really different than usual, and I was loose in odd ways. Normally I do stretch hip flexors before any pulling or squatting, it was the addition of the glute bridges with my belt around the knees that made things loopy.

Hey Shaf,
Can you give us one of your YouTube tutorials on this glute bridge thing? I tried Google, but there are about 10 different people calling 10 different glute bridges the same thing? Or you could just point me to the correct image...whatever tickles your pickle.
