Overall Workout Grade: A

Notes:
All is well.
Squats felt good. I realize mentally I have really been holding myself back on my squats. And based on my past injury history, rightfully so. However I realized during this workout, that I am not only 100% as far as my lower back and ab muscles, but they are stronger than they have ever been. I need to let go of that fear of hurting/rehurting my core/lower back during squats and push it harder.

My bench is starting to adjust to the added volume. So is my CGBP for that matter. They both felt much more solid this workout. I think the added volume really shocked my CNS initially, in particular with these 2 lifts.

DB rows felt very solid. I'm not sure what my PB is on these, I'll have to search through post logs, but I may already be exceeding my past PB. Either way, they feel great.

Another thing about this workout is that after the squats I am a sweaty out of breath mess. When I stumble to the bench press I feel like I am going to die. It really takes a bit to recover.
