Training notes:
Box squat- wide stance on these and make sure to get your mind to the hip muscles. You may want to use more quads but stay the course and keep it in the hips. It's okay to have a lower weight on the bar to accomplish it.
Cossack Sequence: the sequence includes 1 cossack lunge (right side) + 1 squat + 1 reverse lunge = 1 rep.  Do the same on the left side.  Do these with DB held in the front rack or non weighted
