Game day. We lost 8-16 but had to call the game off with 15 minutes to go because one of our boys got a neck injury and had to be immobilised in the middle of the pitch. No fracture in the end, just soft tissue stuff. They were a bunch of big boys and the ball was constantly held up in the forwards so our backs couldn't get any work in and our smaller pack just consistently got pounded.
I was battered yesterday so no deadlift club.
Weighed in at 97.2kg consistently over the past couple of days.
Today - did squats cos I skipped a session yesterday. Don't wanna knacker myself for Wednesday's pulls and rugby so I didn't do any assistance exercises.

100kg x 3
120kg x 2
135kg x 3
152.5kg x 3
172.5kg x 10 - e1rm 230kg. These felt shite from about rep 2, glad I pushed through and hit the rep goal.
185kg x 3
Had a bit of difficulty staying tight today, wrist wraps might be playing into it but I think it's mainly cos I'm bruised all over the place. Wanted a heavier joker but it wasn't happening.
Bit of stretching - I'm definitely beat up the amount this hurt.
Went back in later to bench cos I'm giving blood tomorrow evening.

40kg x 10
60kg x 5
75kg x 3
85kg x 3
95kg x 11 - 1rm 130kg - failed number 12 without having a spotter so just managed to get it half on the pins - stupid of me. Pauses weren't completely on point. Disappointed with the set. I was using a different bench cos the gym was rammed, let's blame that. Put me off jokers.
Dips - belt was awol so I did some reps
BW x 10,15,20(PR),15,10
DB seated ohp
15s x 12
25s x 8
30s x 9
25s x 12 - unsurprisingly triceps were limiting these
Not the best upper body session - actually felt better this morning which is odd. Not gonna beat myself up for missing my rep goal by 1 but I shouldn't be failing reps.
