34 Minutes of Stretching
Late night the day before meant I wanted to wait until later in the
afternoon to lift. The meatloaf from yesterday was not agreeing with me.
Body very sore so I figured it would be interesting seeing how the
soreness would affect my strength. My usual front squats with a twist;
pauses. I think the most I’ve tried doing a pause front squat with is
only 225lbs. The pauses made these lifts so much harder. Did a few sets
to get ready for the rack pulls. Used the heavy squat bar. Felt heavier
than I would have liked but my darn ratchet belt kept coming loose as
soon as I flexed my abs to break the weight off the pins. I may have to
ditch it if I run into that issue again. Lower back was starting to feel
it as I moved on to pulls with chains. 405lbs felt like speed work and I
was ready for my next set but then the meatloaf came a calling.
Definitely not as fast on the last two singles. I was surprised with how
that much weight made a difference. Farmer’s walks after that. Messed
up the turn the first set but did much better on the second set.
Finished up with some rows, a lot of curls and easy ab work before doing
a lot of stretching and some inversion table.
