You’ll take my life but I’ll take yours too
You’ll fire your musket but I’ll run you through
So when your waiting for the next attack
You’d better stand there’s no turning back!

Had a little less soreness than yesterday, but not much.
Having no classes and nothing to do except eat, sleep, play GTA4 and lift means that I don’t keep track of date or time outside of this log until my summer classes start. This lead to me forgetting that my high school gym is closed on Friday nights lol.
Paid a walk in fee at another gym the next town over.
Front Squat 4x6x155
God damn I thought I was going to die on these. My original plan was to go balls to the wall with 185 but that wasn’t happening today. For reference I’ve done 225 for an easy single before.
A question for Eric: I sometimes get shooting nerve pain on my left foot (somewhere around the medial longitudinal arch on the top of the foot) while front squatting. This has happened in my regular shoes and VS Athletics Weightlifting shoes, but I’ve never tried it barefoot. Do you have any insight?
Rack Pull from Knees 4x6x275
I finally encountered one of those Texas Chainsaw Massacre bars that Rippetoe was talking about in Starting Strength. The knurling was cutting straight through my albino layer of chalk lol.
DB Split Squat 3x6x20s
My balance sucks :(. I’ve also noticed that my right leg is worth at least a few more reps than my left, but that’s something that I already knew.
Reverse Crunch 3x12
