Good enough.

For sure, the tightening of the diet is affecting performance. Everything went fine, just not as explosive and fast… speed just wasn’t there today. Still, it was overall pretty solid and I’m good with it given all things.

I’m happy I went back to not using a belt. It’s really making me have to think about getting tighter throughout my whole body, especially the torso and upper back. Even tho the 275 was a little slow, it was solid and good. Tight tight tight. I will say then that going back to the belt is going to be different — technique is changing for sure.

Going up on the deadlift felt good too. I think before the end of the year I ought to try pulling conventional and see what happens.

Lunges were light, just because I’m trying to be good to my knee — I want to strengthen my knees, not make things worse. 🙂

Anyways, while the diet is obviously going to degrade performance some, that’s fine. My goal is the fat loss. But still, overall everything else is progressing too, just a lot slower. That’s fine, so long as I can meet the fat-loss goals, I’m good.
