    Deadlifts were a lot harder than they should be. Will probably move onto the deload / intensification phase after next session for a bit.

    Press was easy. Front squats - failed 3rd rep of top set so put my ego at the door and lowered the weight.

    BW = 79kg :O! Can't remember the last time i was sub 80kg!

    Squats felt terrible. Weight felt light but reps were slow. Will try out the deload route for the following workouts.

    Hip flexors were crazy tight no matter how much I tried to stretch them. This slightly affected the squats but session was easy overall..

    Hip flexors were playing up again. Still, deadlifts felt smooth (so much better deadlifting with a 28mm bar).

    Also tried some barbell hip thrusts - they absolutely crushed my hip joint!

    Hip pain was there on warm up sets and was absolutely painful for 140. Was hoping to get 155 for a triple .. Disappointed by my squatting activity, i decided to do some low weight high rep squats.

    Bleh session all in all..

    Top set of squats were cut short due to absolutely troublesome hip and abductor pain ! Also, been re-taught how to squat as my form is absolutely **** - not to mention the fact that it is so obvious that I shift to my left on the way up !

    A guy who I hadn't trained with for a while commented on how lean I am. Bw is only 78kg as well. Anyways, really need to work on eating (more meats, more saturated fats) if I want to get stronger. However, I am very reluctant to eat more due to my past experience of being a fat ****! Need to stop bitching on how weak I am !

    Definitely starting to admire those who stay ****ing strong and lean day in day out.
