So this challenge started off as poorly as any in the history of these challenges...

 

Saturday went for a hike ... UP and UP and UP we went ...  ugh... 

 

Said hike was killer up and down, like seriously some of the toughest inclines I've dealt with in a LONG time ... not cool.

 

Sunday we headed home SUPER soar! Which of course meant Monday we missed out workout cause NO way I was gonna try doing weighted squats when my glutes hurt just walking around ... same with today. 

 

So I'm at the B stage of the game ... time to sort this out!

Today was 5x5 w/ squats, bench, and rows

 

Squat and bench went fine at 105lb and 75lbs respectively.

 

Rows ... rows did NOT go so well. 95lbs was more than I could handle. Hacked through the first sets of 5, managed 4 on the next, third set was tough but managed 5... sets 4 and 5 were 3 reps and then 1 rep... ugh. Going to back down on weight and see if that helps.

Im in the same boat with the clothes. I know I will start losing weight but I currently barely fit int anything i own...

 

But to be fair looking good can be a huge confidence boost if you wear the right clothing.

Hey S5

I get the having to reduce weight to make a set pay off. It's a bit of a downer, but you will get a chance to perfect your form, find the places were you lag without realizing it, and you'll be better for it when you gain even more weight on the row later on.  Hang in there.

I'm having the very same issue, have a squat goal but killed my quads the day before the challenge. I'm giving myself free points until quads work again. Quad work is quad work! 

Yeah not fun not  fun at all!

Yeah rows are rough ... stalled on my ohp last week ... so definitely hitting limits but have been going solid for a month so don't feel TOO bad

Nice deadlift increase!  (Aren't deadlifts fun?!)  

 

Squat question - are you confident with your form?  Have you recorded it and watched back (or even posted a form check)?  Sometimes a form tweak can make a big difference.

I'm pretty confident in my squats - usually my wife watches me and make sure I'm getting good depth.

 

Big issue was my arrogance of taking a week off because of travel and thinking I could get right back under it. ... should've gone down 10-20% and worked back up.
