Nope, still not ready to go. Sigh. Tuesday or Thursday.
4x67.5 (149 lbs), 4x67.5, 5x65
Video of 2nd work set
. Appreciate any feedback, especially on weaknesses from last vid (grip width, leg drive, arch).
1st set felt a twinge in shoulder and skipped last rep. 2nd set, the one I videoed, the last rep wasn't even close to going up. Will repeat next time. Fractional weights arrived yesterday, hallelujah. Microloading on bench and press from now on.
Btw, the 'squeeze shoulder blades' tip is awesome for getting a proper arch. Both brother and gf had good arches for the first time using this tip. Gripping the bar hard kinda got lost in the shuffle though I think :/
Decided to reset a bit lower and increase more quickly to make sure form is passable.
5x90 (200 lbs) - noticed shoulders were too forward when setting up, causing bar to travel inwards when doing the rep.
. Looking in "mirror" to make sure set-up is ok - my hips are lower than the std position so using the mirror at first as a learning aid to unlearn (unlearning stuff is hard). Still need to work on lower back extension obv, but is this good enough to not injure myself while working on it? Other comments?
I need to get me some sweats, way too cold in the gym during winter months.
