I have started to use front squats for warm ups for my lower body days, I feel like this is really helping.
Knee Wraps on
140kgx10-HUGE PR - Room for improvement too!
I havent worn knee wraps in a while, they are old and worn out but I feel like I get good support out of them, weather I get much out of them is debateable. I feel safer with them, due to my left knee which was supposed to have surgery on awhile ago but never happened.
I made sure I did an even amount of reps on each leg but didnt keep count of the amount done, I held back because the box squats gassed me.
The plan was stiff leg deads but due to being gassed I went for a less demanding exercise
Seated calf raises
60kgx20-PR- plenty in the tank
I am finally starting to realise assistance work doesnt need to be pushed all of the time and adaptions can be made depeding on energy levels or feeling. I will go for PR's on assistance when I feel comfortable doing so but I wont be smashing all out effort on them all of the time.....I may have finally learnt to choose my battles!
I skipped neck and abs today because I felt like I had done enough and didnt want to drag my session on any longer.
Diet has made a marked improvement today which is never a bad thing.
Over all Im pleased with today but never satisfied!
