Much better today than last week.

Squats are moving well. I think it’s time to bump the weight up, but I’m going to stay here for one more week, see how it goes, then I’ll move it up 10 lbs.

During deadlifts, I realized I was starting with my weight forward on my toes — the different positioning from the deficit. Relative to my legs, my back is very strong, so doing things like sitting back more put me into a deeper “squat” to start and really changed the pull. Consequently, I dropped the weight down (just did simple plate-math) and that seems like it might be a more productive thing for me for a while — less weight, deficit, and really focus on “squatting the weight up”. No question from the floor is where I need some work because once things get past the knees it’s no problem. My hamstrings reminded me they need work. 🙂 So I’ll stick with the lower weight for a while, keep my big toe lifted up to force me back on my heels more, allow for the deeper starting position, and work from there.
