Good session today - a significant improvement in my kettlebell time, and some solid assistance work. My shoulders, especially my left, have felt off since my last pressing workout so I didn't do any push movements. I used to have a lot of trouble with shoulder pain when pressing, so I'm going to restrict these to once per week from now on.
With the first five pistol squats I paused at the bottom and at parallel again, which makes them much harder. With my hamstrings resting on my calves the movement is actually initiated by the contracting muscles pushing into each other as they tense if that makes sense, so pausing at parallel really kills all momentum.
I think that once I complete this Henrique's deadlift cycle I'm going to drop my max and run it again with no belt and double overhand only. It will do me good to work with lighter weights and I'm definitely beginning to develop an upper back imbalance with my mixed grip. Alternatively I might start using straps for my top set.
