Comments: Was not sure what was going to happen with squats. Still felt it in the lower body from attempted event training. I was concerned after how heavy the warm-up singles felt but pushed forward. Every rep with 380lbs felt heavy and slow. Really surprised to get more than 5 with how hard it felt. Just kept saying one more rep to myself and telling myself that I've done this stuff before. Bar rolled up my back on the tenth rep, making it way harder than it should have been. Felt like a good place to stop. Would have liked a dozen but still good. A bit apprehensive with how the chain squats would go but didn't have much trouble. Just felt heavy haha. Hip thrusts were painful without the squat pad. Had a bench with padding this time so no gashes on my lower back. Band leg curls were quite tough.

Comments: I wasn't sure how this would go. Joints felt achy in my legs like I wasn't getting much out of them. Accelerated the 5/3/1 schema to have this be quasi-max test day to see where I'm at for the Pro/Am. The goal weight was quite easy. Had tons of issues with my right hand and only managed 10lbs more than the goal weight. Still my best on this implement. I was able to do considerably more with my left and did 30lbs more than the goal weight, which is slightly over the contest weight. Very happy with this result and it certainly makes it look like what I'm doing is working. For the secondary lift of the session, I did just the empty dumbbell for sets of 8 with only 1 clean. Shoulders took a beating on these and it was equally difficult for both sides. I figured this was the closest I could get to doing "rack presses" like I would for say the axle or log. Lot's of time for the shoulders and upper body to be under tension. Beat but satisfied.

The past few days have been a butt. Plain and simple. New changes at work caused me enough stress that I got sick with a head cold. Thursday and Friday were extremely stressful. I tried lifting after work Friday but it was bad one and I went home a fell asleep without eating dinner. No appetie the following day either and I slept 14 hours. Just went for a walk and spent most of the day thinking and trying to myself to eat and drink. The short of it is DE/ME for lower body, cube stuff for incline and what I've been doing for the overhead. See how this goes and try to to squeeze in events at some point. Will be much easier when I'm done with night school.

32 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: Not feeling so hot with the cold. Weird using the axle for incline. Just feels dense. Only done it once before several years ago. Not bad, just under my barbell max. Moved on to floor pressing with the swiss bar. Just warmed up with plate-quarter-plate and went from there. Quite tired from this. Didn't push the rows as hard as I could've. Hard to get my air doing reps being all congested. Finally got all the reps on triceps stuff. Good bit of stretching to try and loosen up my glutes, hips and back.
