Once you reset (lower) your expectations, it’s not too bad…. I guess. 🙂

I have to remind myself — it’s about body weight not bar weight.

Going into today accepting the massive loss of strength, made things go a lot better. I expected to just get prescribed reps, but managed to get a couple more. Really lowered the 5×10 squat weight, and geez if 140# isn’t kicking my carb-depleated butt. But overall, things went as well as I could expect them to.

If nothing else, it affords me the opportunity to do more technique work. Really working on breaking at the hips first, sticking the butt out and going with that first, then on the way back up when I get to maybe like 85% upright ensuring to push the hips through. Don’t make it a purely quad thing, ensure the hips and glutes get pulled into the mix. Lighter weights but more reps? great… means more technique time.

Gotta find the positive. 🙂
