260kg's x 5 PB
260kg's x 6 PB
90kg's for 2 sets of 10
First time doing heavy conventionals for about a year. Form still needs a bit of work: I think my hips need to come lower but I find them so uncomfortable when I'm at the bottom. Just like I'm all crowded. I've read a fair bit about the benefits of training both stances though so I'll continue to work on it.
I haven't done shrugs in a while so I made up for it by putting on a lot of weight. 6pps felt like it was going to pull my arms off. AWESOME. Didn't want to do the 1.25 squats so I knew I had to. Extra 10kg's and got it done.
Great session today. Feeling strong at the moment.
