Not terrible, but not brilliant this afternoon. Still feeling tight in the same places.
142.5 x 5/5/5
Okay. Didn't feel fully recovered from last time.
82.5 x 4
****ed up here. Meant to do 80 3x5 but was a nincompoop and loaded on an extra 1.25 each side. My fault.
155 x 5
Not that great. Really struggle to maintain hard extension and take a deep breath. Struggling with diaphragm breathing, I think. Hips were probably too low on some of these reps too. The deadlift certainly isn't the easiest lift for, technically.
Quite hard. I honestly think that doing some form of squats to begin with really helps warm me up, and maybe even helps with subsequent lifts, providing I do not go all out on the squats.
160 x 5
Technique still not clicking. I think my shoulders are too far forward in front of the bar, and maybe this is due to my shoes putting me forward slightly. Or maybe I'm not putting my hips back far enough. This obviously makes thoracic extension more difficult, which also makes taking a deep breath and staying tight more difficult, which makes the lift more difficult. Also feeling maybe a bit too much loading on the knees, which is also a sign that I'm not tight enough.
Not a bad session tonight. Feeling a little fatigued from Wednesday (not used to training this frequently at the moment, sadly), and pecs, traps and neck feeling tight.
150 x 5/5/5
66 x 5/5/5
Quite difficult. I think I may be hyperextending my low back on these, which may have caused the little low back niggle last time. I'll see how things feel tomorrow, and I'm also going to learn the press 2.0, as apparently it's a little more low back friendly.
160 x 5
Hard, but did them in socks which overall felt a little better and was told there was nothing wrong with my back.
Some lacrosse ball work throughout the session then home.
