Thanks guys :)

Today was another good gym day (though not exactly easy).

I feel like my hips have been really tight lately so have been lots and lots of stretching and mobility. Today I decided I would incorporate kang squats (a good morning/squat hybrid) with just the bar and see how they felt. Personally, I quite enjoyed them and could feel it mostly in through hamstrings and glutes - I think I'll keep them in for now.

Warmup:

Push-ups

Planks

Jump rope

Kang squats

Back squat:

10@45

5@65

5@95

5@115

5@125

5x5@150

* these felt really good

OHP

5x5@45

Deadlift

8@95

5@115

5@135

5@155

Back squat:

26@75

Hypers

3x10@45

Jump rope - competed with Jon to see who could go longest unbroken; he won with 136. I got 104.

Letting go is the hardest asana.

I've never heard of kang squats before. Now you've got me interested in trying them.

I'm kind of stuck with my squat at 120 so I'm going to try deloading as well. Looks like you're doing well on your challenge, giggling yoga counts since being happy does build towards relaxation ^_^

Yea gym day!!!

I AM going the distance

 

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

We'll see if it does me any good! I also added in the max reps at 50% of that days work weight.

Yea gym day!!!

Whoo!

Yup. Kang squats are a fun accesory lift/stretch. I reallllly feel em in my glutes and hamstrings. They've pretty much replaced good morning for me.

Yeah - I like em a lot. I feel like they really helped my hips start moving too.

Saturday I did some stuff at the gym that I can't remember except squats @155. Sunday was all the snatches. Monday I nailed 160 back squat and benched at 100 but ran out of time before DL :-/

I have been borrowing a rando lifting belt from list and found bc I can't find mine. I'm pretty sure I left it behind lady week and bro friend picked it up for me - problem is sometimes I can't work out in the evenings, hence I haven't gotten it back in a week.

The rando belt isn't very snug - and it has prongs so can't get it any tighter but it makes me feel better anyways.

Tomorrow I will get 165 and should be obliterating 170 in BigMs garage on Friday.

Also, some of you know that my weight had stalled despite showing progress in measures areas... yesterday I was down 1.2; normally I wouldn't celebrate this bc weight can vary so wildly but it still felt like a huuuuuge win since I have been weighing in the exact same (sometimes higher) for about 4 months.

I'm comin for you, brick line.
