Had to make today a Wendler “jack shit” day — well, almost. I deadlifted, I front squatted, and that’s it. Just a matter of time.
Deadlifts went well. Again, since I’ve been away from conventional deadlifts for so long, technique is really rusty, but I’m getting it back. Today felt very in the groove. The 10 reps was pretty easy and I certainly left a few in the tank — if anything, my grip was just starting to fade so I went ahead and shut it down.
Front Squats I know are supposed to be a quad-emphasis movement, but man… I reall feel it in my glutes and hamstrings. Not sure if that’s a statement on my technique, or just weakness, or that I’m weird, or what. But there you go.
Anyways, things went just fine. In, out, gotta move on.
No music today. Something’s on my mind and I was thinking about it the whole time.
