I had some issues with squatting tonight. In my first work set I re-racked half way through so I could reset the bar on my back. The next rep (4th) felt good, my back stayed strong and the weight drove up cleanly.

In the next set Carl looked at the breakdown of form and told me to reduce the weight and go again. I feel that there is an issue in the way I hold the bar, leaving me over conscious of it and under conscious of everything else... and my hamstrings are like guitar strings. In short I feel that 90kg should be no issue at all. I can Bulgarian split squat 80kg on each leg, so 90 with two should be nothing. I may try the top squat next week to remove my girly Neily wrists from the equation. To be honest, I'm not disappointed, I'm angry AND disappointed.

Dead lifts were at the other end of the spectrum. The weight went up easily and felt good.

PMPW: 90kg
