2017-01-17 training log

Today was good. I am glad I “reset” my deadlift based off the former progression rather than the 1RM I set.

Again, went for a double on the last set, instead of pure prescribed reps.

RDL’s I tweaked a bit. I realize that as I’m descending my knees get a little more bend in them — hamstring flexibility, and the lack of it. On the later sets I gave just a slight bend but did my best to hold it all the way through. When I did that, I felt it a lot more in my hamstrings and the work was different. I’m going to keep the weight steady and continue to work that technique point. Besides, that should over time help with flexibility too. 🙂

Leg curls – man, it’s so light, but when you curl all the way to your butt, squeeze, and slowly descend, it really adds up.

Skipped abs. Whatever I tweaked the other day during leg raises it’s almost gone, but not totally. I’m going to just skip direct ab work the rest of this week to let things heal and I’ll reassess next week.
