Wasn't feeling up to it tonight at all. Not in the slightest. So did some light bench (70 3x5) and some foam rolling and lacrosse ball work then home.
An average session tonight.
125 x 5
140 x 5
155 x 5
155 was quite hard. Heaviest I've went in 2 weeks. Maybe de-trained a little.
60 x 5/5/5
Not too bad I don't think, although it's definitely harder doing it this was as opposed to utilising the stretch reflex on the bottom.
170 x 5
These were the nadir of the night. Felt awkward, grip felt weak, several misses in between reps, maybe just wasn't manning up to it.
Some lacrosse ball work throughout the session then home.
122.5 x 5/5
82.5 x 5/5/5
Okay. But hurt my ass again doing these. Not sure how.
bodyweight x 6/6/6/4
Some lacrosse ball work and foam rolling then home.
Okay session tonight.
150 x 5/5/5
Getting back into sets across to see how low back/glutes feel, whilst trying to keep form tight too e.g. ass back, knees out etc.
62.5 x 4/4/4/3
Meh. Triceps fatiguing on the last rep. Maybe not leaning back enough either or bracing abs enough.
bodyweight x 4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4
Trying to get some volume in, since these just aren't improving otherwise.
Some lacrosse ball work then home.
Not a bad session tonight, especially given that low back felt a bit worse yesterday and today. Think it's still the glute issue.
125 x 5/5
85 x 5/5/5
Okay, but I keep setting up too close to the uprights and as a result the bar was clipping the J-hooks on some reps.
170 x 5
Went for 170 again. A bit better than last time, but still need to squeeze chest up and was still a bit too much on the toes to set up on some of the later reps.
Some stretching and lacrosse ball work then home.
Good session tonight. Still dealing with left glute issue.
152.5 x 5/5/5
First set not too bad, but last rep of last two sets quite difficult.
62.5 x 5/5/5
Got them all this time.
bodyweight x 5/5/5/5/5/5
A bit more difficult towards the end.
Some stretching, lacrosse ball work and then home.
Hoping the volume helps drive them up, since I still suck at them.
Decent session tonight.
127.5 x 5/5
Light squats, although felt heavier, but I suspect that when light squats feel a bit heavier that's when you know you need them.
87.5 x 5/5/5
92.5 x 1
97.5 x 1
102.5 x f
Happy with getting all the reps of the worksets but unfortunately never had a new PR in me.
175 x 5
Felt much better than previous sessions recently; was rocking back to get the weight over mid-foot and as a result the bar was staying much closer to me.
Tried some chin ups, didn't get many done at all, some lacrosse ball work then home.
Just quickly went in to do some chins this afternoon and some stretching and lacrosse ball type work. For chins did bodyweight x 8/7/6/5.
Hey do you have transformation pics?
Meh session this afternoon.
155 x 5/5/5
Last set very difficult. First set not too bad I don't think. About same as last time I did this, overall, I would say.
65 x 5/4/3/3
Meh. After first set was really feeling them in the shoulders (strange, I know). On the later sets just didn't have the strength in me.
180 x 4
Didn't feel quite as good as last time. Belt was possibly too tight, inhibiting proper set up, and the bar didn't feel like it was being dragged up the the thighs like last time, like I was setting up a bit too far forward of the mid-foot, or wasn't getting enough lat tension.
A bit of lacrosse ball work then home.
Just a quick one this afternoon, doing stretching and lacrosse ball work and some chins (bodyweight x 8/8/7/5).
