Default ME Legs

Squat:
315x3 felt good (no vid)
365x3 felt like everything I had drained out of me.
315x3
315x3
335x3 Wasn't going down without a fight for something more.
Explanation below.

Goodmornings:
95x5
115x5
135x5
135x5
155x6
Could count all of these as PR's as I've never gone over 95 on these for any rep range. Had much more in me, but I felt like I'd leave off as a starting point for future progress.

Weighted Decline Situps:
50x10
50x10
60x10

Started working today. My job is working with my father doing carpentry, including but not limited to: remodeling, building, electrical, plumbing, etc.
So, I should've compensated a bit for the energy I put towards work. Have started to eat more calories to compensate and tomorrow is a well needed (but also hated) off day.

But there's something to say for even bad days. Strength isn't always about a PR, sometimes there's much more to it than that. Sure more poundage is always a good thing, don't get me wrong, but being able to give everything you have even a bad day is also a form of strength. Appreciating the good days and learning. Maybe you won't PR on your big lift, but fight for everything you've got and you're bad day won't be wasted.

Vid inc.
