2016-05-10 training log

I didn’t want to go to the gym this morning. I really zonked out hard earlier than usual last night, and I didn’t want to get up — my body was all about sleep. So it was drag-ass out of bed.

I did go to the gym, but I opted to just have fun as that’s the goal of this cycle, right?

So I did front squats and worked up to a good single. Cool thing? It was a bunch of PR’s today. The app I use for tracking, RepCount, gives stats including personal records. So today I did my best front squat ever, my best 2 rep max, and my best 5 rep max. Granted, that’s basically just looking at the largest weight entered for a given rep count, so the 2 and 5 probably don’t count much. But the 1RM is pretty cool. I could have gone up a little more but figured this was good enough.

When I started my work sets, I dropped the weight, thus the 2 reps. I was in the hole and lost balance, and that was that — dropped the weight. No big deal, but just noting the 2 reps.

Then I opted to just do a little extra work. Just to have some fun and get some work in. I had thought about Jack-Shitting the day, so this was a reasonable trade-off.

I am thinking towards the future, that I might try ass-to-grass front squats. The lower I get, the more I feel it in my glutes and hamstrings. It might be interesting to really lighten the weight and try that and see where it gets me.
