Figures I get hit with a cold after the crappy and stressful week. Feeling better but not yet back to 100%.
16” Axle Block Pulls
Cambered Squat Bar Goodmornings
31 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Despite feeling a little under the weather, this went well. Plan was to hit a solid set of five on axle block pulls, aim for at least a double after that and then hit a down set for at the most 12 reps. I would have preferred contest weight for the set of five but I'll take what I can get. The double felt good and I went for another rep but only broke it off the blocks a few inches. Picked too light of a weight for the down set, getting 12 reps was only a slight struggle. I wasn't too sure how gm's would be after repping on the block pulls but it actually felt really good. Just aimed for a small PR and got that comfortably. Pull-ups were a different story. The time off and the reps on block pulls just killed my upper back strength. Really had to fight for every rep and had to break up the sets considerably to get all of the reps. Hopefully I'll be better at it next time. Stretching felt good.
