This week, I started using Carl's top squat and I am fucking enthusiastic. Why? Well the weight I thought should have gone up 2 weeks ago (but didn't), went up without an issue this time. I wasn't thinking about my wrist falling under the bar I was just thinking about my form and standing up again. I can't remember if I mentioned this previous and am too lazy to check, but I was feeling somewhat shitty about the breakdown last time. Next week, 5kg extra on the bar.

Power cleans were easy and scary. Easy because I'm not near my limits yet, scary because each rep left me light headed and dizzy. I'm blaming blood pressure, or lack there of on this one.

Bench press was bench press. The last couple of reps of the last set were shaky and the bar speed slowed, but it was more weight than last time and it went up 15 times, so I guess that's a win.

It's a lonely ride home from Mitcham and the Haus, but history has told me it's better for my recovery than sitting in a car.

PMPW: 90kg
