Should have done more cardio, to offset all the candy from tonight. That’s how it works, right? 😉

So continuing on the quasi-basebuilding front, today is now both squat AND deadlift day. I’m keeping squats on the same format I’ve been doing, as that seems to be working well and progress continues. It was a little slow today and technique felt a little off, but I’ll chalk that up to 2 weeks away. Still a generally solid day.

Deadlifting. I haven’t done conventional in a while, so I had no idea where to start, especially after a grueling squat session. So I just picked some numbers and did it basebuilding model-1 style. It was mostly ok, tho my hamstrings felt tight on the descent so I wasn’t in a great position on the subsequent reps. I’ve been working on my hamstring and “posterior chain” flexibility. That seems to be helping well with my lower back in general, and hopefully it’ll help out here too.

But I think things are generally in good shape here. I’ll stick with the deadlift numbers and start putting C.A.T. into things.
