Days like today make me glad I am dedicating myself to the iron. My work is going exceedingly crappy, I am back to square one which involves writing crap for crap money and I am starting to hate the thing I love the most (writing). Felt like shit going in today, no momentum, motivation, nothing. Yet when it came time to lift, it's like my brain said 'You can stop this session being crap too' and I managed to bust out squat and bench PR's.
Weird experience. It was like my whole body was in unison to lift the weight. Felt nothing in my legs... until about 20 seconds after the last rep when they felt a bit wobbly but nothing bad.
Felt so confident that I didn't use a spotter. Was hard but got 5 good clean reps. Will use a spotter next week
Started off light because I did these last year and struggled with 50kg. Worked up to 70kg which felt fine. Have to use plates to rest the weight on however because I'm having to bend over too far to get a good grip on the bar and I need elevation to keep my back the way it should be.
9,6,7: Tiredness rather than strength stopped me doing more.
