2018-02-16 training log

Well, my first run of the MPT are pretty much done. Yeah, there’s a deload next week, but basically this is it.

I’ve enjoyed it. I’ll write more on my overall impressions soon.

Meantime, today was just what it was. I hate hex/trap-bar deadlifts, but I also think they are great and will find more of a regular place in my life.

I also do want to put more DB work into my life. It’s harder, and I really love what it does for grip.

On stiff-legs, I need to be better about not bending my knees. Yes there’s a slight bend, but that bend should remain stable. I found myself bending a little more as the bar descended, which took the stress off the hamstrings. When I kept the knees “locked” (again, still a slight bend/break, just don’t change the angle), that really worked the hamstrings better. Something for me to keep in mind.

Anyways, that’s that. I’ll take deload, then I’m 95% sure I’m going to run the MPT again with Jared’s modifications.

For the record, today: 3/fail, 2-3 minutes rest between sets (tho calf raises maybe were 90 seconds)
