Today was kinda cool.

I am very mentally distracted — some big life stuff weighing on me. So I really didn’t pay much attention to things… no idea how many reps to hit, just figured I knew the goal is 18-20 reps and I wasn’t anywhere near that yet so, just keep going until you either hit those reps or hit failure.

And… I got a few more reps than last week. So I do hope this means that things are on an upward trend for me now. 🙂 Still not enough data points to truly say, but so far so good.

One thing on the stiff-legs was (almost) forgetting to mix-grip the AMRAP set. Last week it was my grip that gave out before everything else, so halfway through I remembered and switched my grip. It was a good thing, but threw off my groove… meh. No complaints really. I still cranked out more than last week, I just need to remember before I start.

But that’s all I did. I didn’t do the splits squats. Again, with all the life stuff weighing on me, the poor sleep I’ve been getting as a result… well… if I’m not able to recover as well as I need to, there’s no point in digging my hole deeper right now. Did the main work, that was enough.
