Relatively chill sesh today with some deadlifts and squat assistance stuff today. Technique work continuing on sumo still sorting out my cues.
SBD Fatigue Levels: 6,4,5
Weights feeling lighter than last week so that’s nice. Not too challenging so gonna continue bumping the weight up. Top triple @ 180kg followed by one set rep work @ 180kg with straps.
My cues in working with are to get the knees out and keep them in that position as long as possible and getting the bar closer by engaging lats and pulling my arms to my thighs.
Still working on cues for initiating the lift and when/where to breathe. Also using that damn belt
So Deadlift was moving but I’ll give this session a 6/10 rating. Dunno just wasn’t that challenging but still the weight wasn’t moving as sexy as I’d like. Wasn’t really focused and concentrating on the cues today
Of all things Front Squat was feeling good with a solid non clavical bruising rack position even with the cheese grating onto of the power bar. Only had one set prescribed today but it went well so hit another.
Last time I did these I couldn’t even find a rack position. 92.5kg for a couple is a rep PR I think believe it or not. I think I hit 100kg for almost as many reps once upon a time but that was in sleeves.
Haven’t never gone after front squats long or hard enough to really know if it’s good gains for me but we’ll stick with it a few weeks and see. Gonna have to always focus on being upright and not letting the hips shoot back as that’s my tendency to get the full benefits of front squats.
