A couple days in one update

Work has been crazy as shit and its forcing me to re-evaluate my personal training schedule a great deal. I am not sure if I can keep up this pace for long and something is going to have to give.

Thursday was designated squat day and I was feeling like shit for a few reasons. Form was off, hips were tight and was dissatisfied with the feeling of what I was working with.

ME Deadlift

As you can see, I stopped the workout. My mind was out of it and I wasn’t going to attempt another rep.
Fuck it.
Friday is usually upper body assistance day but instead wanted to tweak my form once and for all and get it dialed in, and I did just that.
I narrowed the stance a tad, lowered the bar on my back a little and made some minor adjustments that I know would work for me, and I had a solid session.
I was going to go light to just get the form down, but worked up to a moderate 405 and the weight felt fast and easy.
