Today went better than last week – everything felt more comfortable.

High bar squats got a slight adjustment: instead of being atop my traps, the bar was just behind the peak but resting atop my shoulders. Much more comfortable. Also worked more at elbows in and down, to make a better shelf. But all in all, it moved better.

And really, same can be said for everything today: it just moved better. Again, acclimation, even tho more weight and more sets. It’s still 3/fail tho. Can’t wait for next week and 2/fail. 🙂

I am really liking the seated leg curls. This is the first time I’ve used such a machine, and I’m getting some work in my hamstrings that I never got out of a lying leg curl.

Despite the fact it doesn’t feel like I’m getting a lot of work per-session, the fact that later in the day and then the next day I’m certainly tighter and sore in the muscles worked, that’s a decent sign. Hopefully that keeps up every week, as indicator that I’m getting more stress and NOT adapting.

Anyways, moving along.
