Days like today make me want to get back to strength-based work.

Enjoyed today. Felt good to get a little strain in, but still having to keep “3/fail” in mind. I felt this was overall a bit better because I was keeping it at the higher reps, but yet things felt heavier in a good way.

High-bar. Still not my favorite, but still good. Really working on keeping my eyes at a better position and feeling what my body is not and not watching it.

Front squats are still a great thing. Lower weight, stricter form (keeping as upright as possible so that out of the hole I don’t lean forward), is good stuff.

Skullcrushers were different today. I was trying to use the standard bar, but it was problematic dealing with the uprights/hooks, not having a huge reach-back to get the bar, etc.. Plus, the wrists/torque. So I opted to skip it today and just use an EZ-Bar, picked up from the floor. Interesting that with a narrow grip things felt too heavy, but then I changed to a wider grip and it felt better. I thought that was pretty cool, and I’m going to keep going with that.

Anyways, things feel alright. The road ahead tho will be killer. To that, while last time I ran the templates and rated my workouts always a “1”, on this? I may not. I do need to make sure I evaluate them individually.
