I had already tried the set once, I got two reps on my first try and this was my second set. I was doing “I’m not doing jack shit” version of 5/3/1 today so this was my final set.
I don’t think it went all too great unless I am wrong. While I think my setup was ok I think my back was rounding even though I tried to look straight forward. I also hyperextended at the end which is a bad habit that I have been working to stop.
I think the entire form imperfection I am seeing (the rounding) could have been averted by mentally driving the chest up. I feel like I thought “Fuck this feels heavy” and felt like the weight was dragging me down to the floor.
Should I repeat this weight or should I carry on like it was advised last time? (Striking a balance between not being a slave to form vs having bad form).
p.s. Forgot chalk and I don’t use a belt, so this was a total raw lift. Also, I am really liking the hypertrophy and strength gains from the programme, I wish I switched from a standard bodybuilding split earlier. I am also not afraid now to eat more, I used to be afraid of eating too much but I don’t gain on this programme unless I am eating more all off the time.
