L1D1, 23.

Part of the slight decline is due to variance as I assume you all are familiar with. Factors like food, amount of sleep, general fatigue, temperature in the room, etc.

In this particular case I did some 3 for 1 "jump-up and hold, go down slowly" pull-ups after I was wiped out on regular ones. I haven't done those in a while and had been sticking with just body rows, which are significantly easier. So I think I got a better arm workout in this case.

I'm having trouble with squat form. Hands on hips? How far down? How do you both stop your knees from crossing over your feet and keep your torso relatively upright?

That's how I do them. When I wasn't sure, I googled bodyweight squats & proper squat form. All pics & vids were essentially the same: put your arms out, keep the weight over your heels, and your back straight. I also do a few squats during my stretching/warmup and during my machines set, just so I know my form is solid.

The important thing is that you're back. Ease yourself back into it and don't sweat the numbers and if you're super sore skip a workout.

Thanks guys...

Yea I'm a little sore today but I still did D2 (no timing, just 3 mins between sets). Actually needed to do knee push-ups for a couple of the sets.
