Good session overall. I figured I can squat a little deeper and ‘neater’ if I point my toes out a little more, though I feel a little weaker out of the hole. Going to stick with what feels like better form and hopefully despite being weaker short term I can take it further long term

HIHF Session 6
Deadlift
70 x 5
120 x 5
160 x 3
200 x 1

Managed hook grip until 200, almost finished the 200 rep with hook but thumb was getting crushed and dropped the rep halfway up.

Deadlifts felt rough today, each rep felt pretty ‘slow’ so did the minimum prescribed volume.

Lower back a bit tired from deadlifts yesterday so no back off sets for squats

Still a weird pain in my shoulder / trap / clavicle that I can’t identify, doesn’t hurt specifically when I bench but it does feel like it flares up after each set and when I re-rack the bar, so no top set or back-offs

Does this program have a lot of wiggle room for you to adjust how much you do like on the fly if you feel beat up?
