Squat - Cycle 2 - 3

I'd recommend reading this article regarding core training and would like to suggest offset farmer walks for the side bends and prone jacknifes in place of the weighted situps.
Funny you mention this, yesterday and today I have DOMS from the situps and db side bends like crazy. The db side bends DOMS were so apparent, had a worry it was going to affect my squat some how (cause of the pressure with the belt). I read that article a long time ago, and then re-read it recently , and started to do some of the stuff after my WO's. When I read that section in 5/3/1, I figured why the hell not, but I'm not such a fan of it. I'm probably going to go back to the WO's in the article above. Only problem is, I'm a moron and need someone to tell me the sets/reps/weight.
I was feeling weird and decided to push the sled around. Just to see how it felt because I want to run hills/push **** around as part of my routine. Kept it simple...
45x20 yards (not sure of the distance need to ask the owner)
180 was no joke. Saw this article on tnation that JW wrote about "programming" prowler pushes. Its not a prowler, its a sled I'm using, closeenough.jpg.
Needless to say, my legs feel like jello.
