THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY
This session came after the last exam of my exam period. Me and some friends went to a buffet to celebrate before hand and I ate way too much. Felt fat, slow and sluggish all the way through my prehab and squat warmups just hating myself for eating so much. Though when it got to 170 I smoked it which I didn't expect (the food baby actually helped bracing against my belt!). Then threw on 180 which I havent hit in a while (due to illness and trying out boxsquats instead of regular squats for a few weeks) and that went up faster than the 170! Was happy with the lift but felt like my head was gonna explode on the way up (face was purple, eyes were bood shot and streaming, massive amount of tension in my forehead) so decided not to push it further and leave it for next week. Hit 2 singles on 170 (1 easy, 1 good morning-ed a bit) then originally planned on doing 150 for sets of 5. I hit my first 3 reps easy then was getting gassed came up on the 4th and started getting that light headed/'heads about to explode' feel but said fuck it I'm not stopping now and grinded the 5th out...
Legit thought I was gonna pass out, I dont even remember racking the bar. I had to hold myself up in the rack while I got my shit together. Dont know if its the lack of sleep, over load of caffiene, the hype of exams or a combination of any of them but something was off. Never had that happen before. Fairly happy with the numbers I hit though.
