I ditched the top squat in an effort to minimise the complexities of my squat in the hope I could lock down my back and continue to progress the movement. I found a comfortable and stable position across the back of my deltoids, concentrated on my back extension and proceeded to put away 3 x 3 at 127.5kg.

Carl's calling the position a high bar, and my back form as worlds different from last week, there's still some work to go, so I might stick with the 2.5kg increments rather than the 5kg I'd previously gone with.

On the other end of the scale I have now lost my back on my deadlifts. Hips are going up first and overpowering the torso/hips. I'll take the PB, but we're going to have to look into some specific work to correct the shortcoming.

RHR: 52bpm

PMPW: 95kg
