Squats felt really good today, my double at 255 was quicker than the same weight on Saturday. Decided to try the new RepBoards we started carrying. They work good and are great for when you have limited help, although I’d still suggest a spotter or safeties.
Decided to cut out the long pause squats and just do a normal 1 second pause on these. My back still felt a little funky by the end. Then the first rep of my 210kg set of deadlifts there was a little pop or click and something seemed to adjust in my low back and it felt better.
That was it, my hands are raw from so many pulls and especially the full reset pulls since my hands would grip a different place every time it was like pulling 15 singles with an eleiko bar. Tough but good workout.
Squat: 2@463/210, 485/220, 501.5/227.5, 512.6/232.5
Close Grip Bench Legs Up: firstname.lastname@example.org/105, 253.5/115, 275.6/125, 275.6/125
Not a ton of work tonight but the squats felt pretty tough, I skipped drop sets on squats just to be cautious for my back, it feels a little off. Legs Up close grip is actually ridiculous, so much harder than it should be.
The pause squats were tough, that’s a long time to sit down in the hole. I also dropped the reps and sets on deadlifts to be safe today. I kind of think the long pause is causing something in my left hip/glute to tighten up which might have caused the tweak last week. Might need to drop the pause or just do a short pause instead.
