The weights keep messing with my head, despite the fact they aren’t a problem. Maybe it’s because so much just flirts around the 300 range and once I get into working in the 300’s regularly it won’t be such a mental game. And that should be soon since next week (1+ week) works up to 305, and it’ll only go up from there.

That all said, today went well. 20-rep squats are a bitch, and the odd thing is the more I do them the more I — well, I don’t want to say I love them, but I come to appreciate them. I was thinking in the coming weeks how I’m going to be adjusting what I do at the end of the work sets (e.g. pressing will change from rest-pause to pyramiding down) and I was wondering what to do with squats. But I think I’m going to keep the 20-rep squats in, especially since the weight is going to go up relatively quickly and it’s just going to get tougher.

Still kept the ab work light. Things felt a little funny today, so maybe the strain isn’t fully healed despite all this time? Basically it’s just a signal to me to continue working my way back slowly here.
