5 second eccentric on each rep of these squats. Tried to keep rest periods short, but I was sucking wind. Wouldn’t have been a terrible weight for straight sets, but those slow eccentrics kill me.

These chins were actually pretty easy. I thought the extra 25lbs was going to be tough, but I felt explosive on the chinup bar.

I really did not want to do this workout. It is hard for me to rally myself after a long day with the toddler. I convinced myself, but it was a slow tempo workout. Had Netflix running on the tablet and got distracted between sets a few times. Not terrible overall, but lots of room for improvement.

I know that feeling very well. I would like to say it gets easier as they get older mate but not sure it does :joy:

And this is only with one. There are days that I wonder why a sane person would ever have a second one! Lol

They don’t! Or they’re no longer sane after the second one anyway.

They at least keep each other busy.

Still owe some rows and deadlifts. I had about 5mins remaining so I just hit a few curls to cap off the workout.
