Squat 90kg x 5 x 5
40kg x 5 x 1 - Didn’t like how the bar was moving
40kg x 3 x 1 - Yep, definitely did not like how the bar was moving and how my form was breaking, so I dropped down to
35kg x 5 x 3
Strict OHP by far has been the worst in terms of progression on SL 5x5. Not sure how to fix this yet aside from the obvious - change the program. Lol. Maybe more dumbell overhead pressing for now.
Deadlift 90kg x 5 x 3
Still working on keeping my lower back from rounding. I’m trying experiment with bracing at the top even before reaching down for the bar, instead of bracing when I’m already in position
Sumo Deadlift 100kg x 5 x 1
I think another reason why my lifts (specifically squat and OHP) are suddenly becoming shitty is because I haven’t trained as consistent as I should for the past two to three weeks. Unfortunately, I sometimes have to skip gym ranging from 3-7 days at a time. Gonna try to get back consistently before I throw the towel on SL 5x5. I really hate the feeling of missing reps.
