Felt beat up and battered today. During the warm-up sets of the squat I could just feel that this was not going to work - bad pain in front hip flexors again for first time in a good while. So f it, did some lighter sets and called it a day on the squats.
3x5x45kg (99 lbs)
Better form this time - making sure elbows are forward helped a lot. Will possibly be able to advance 2.5 kg next time actually.
3rd work set
On the first work set, I decided to try breathing at the bottom instead of at the top and found I preferred that. Breath is a bit screwed up on the set due to usually breathing at top.
Still way sore from last time and the retarded lifts I did then, had already decided to do pull-ups this workout. I think it's time to switch to deadlifting 1/week anyway, per the PPST SS program. Practiced extensively on getting proper form, but I'm seriously unable to keep my back in proper extension that deep. Had brother's gf take pics of my form...see next post.
Instead of using the assisted machine on these, decided to try the rack pull-ups. Barely managed 10 reps on last set. Will continue doing these on the pull-ups and stick to standard on the chins.
