Paused Front Squats (2 second pauses)
14” Trap Bar Deadlifts
2” Platform Deadlifts
Safety Squat Bar Goodmornings
Incline Chest Supported Dumbbell Rows
33 Minutes of Stretching
Lifting stuff again. No really issues with my hips or knees going into
this workout. Front squats with pauses for doubles. Easiest these have
felt this cycle. Practically speed work/warm-ups for the rest of the
workout at this point. I know the meat and potatoes follows. Fairly big
jump up in weight on the trap bar work. Warm-ups felt good and crisp.
Very happy with how much easier this felt than last two weeks with less
weight. Really working on getting my form down with the leg drive.
Platform pulls were pretty good this week too. Not the ludicrous speed
pulls like last week, but still pretty good considering. As for gms and
rows, the weights are still pretty light and comfortable, enough so that
if I don’t pay attention, I lose count of reps and sets. It was
supposed to be two sets of six on gms and five sets of five on rows.
Didn’t realize it until I was home watching the videos. Not going to
lose sleep over it though. Ab wheel really burning a hole through my
lower abs from the inside out haha. Tons of stretching to finish this
week off. Deload returns again.
