Felt some pressure, but these were actually pain-free. Very happy about that. Did tons of quad tendon massage and stretching between each set, and rested 3min between sets as well.

Edit: this is also a default PR on front squats, only because I never bothered to do anything above 6 reps on front squats before. Next workout I think I’ll take 185 out and see how it feels. If I can do 185 pain free, then I can at least begin building strength again with that.

Stopped only due to light headedness and nausea (first workout since transition from days to graveyard shift. Everything feels weird).

Very happy about a front squat workout with no hip pain

Hip finally feeling mostly OK. Still not pushing sets to the point of possible form breakdown, but still managed a couple decent work sets today on squats.

Happy about pausing 275, and a light pause no less (no sink). I think I’ve possibly only ever done 275 touch and go in the past.

Had to chase a suspect at work just prior to hitting the gym, so my right hamstring was iffy. Started with sumo deads but 315 felt wrong. So I switched to conventional.
