Despite all the covid craziness going on, I've met all of my 1st quarter goals so I've ordered a swiss bar from Gorilafitness.ca (yay made in Canada!) for pressing and rowing.  Hoping it'll be here by the end of the month!

My right arm was getting sore in the wrong places on deadlifts so I ended up using straps for everything.

too many carbs 😧  Can't afford/don't have access to as much fresh/frozen produce, thanks state of emergency!  Grain's the necessary evil to stretch the food dollar until this nonsense is over.

The sled is much tougher than I thought on rubber stall mats... very high friction D:

All reps on the x1+ were done as singles with 20 seconds rest, as per the program.  Energy levels flagged with the deadlifts, but I got through it.

Top set was done as singles.

 

Soooo I smell burning rubber when doing the sleds.  No, I'm not going that fast.  Yes, I'll probably have ruts worn into my mats very soon 😧

My swiss bar came in the mail finally, gave it a spin for all my work sets.  It's not bad, will take a bit of getting used to.  Not sure if I like the amount of twisting my wrists are doing throughout the movement, will look up some tutorials on the youtubes.
