    I didn't want to workout today because I was tired but, I did anyway. My chest and triceps were not fully recovered so I didn't do any major compund chest movements.

    I think I missed my deadlift for many reasons today. 5x225lbs most likely wore me out. To big of a increase in weight. I wasn't feeling 100 percent. Maybe next time.

    I have discovered that I have a really weak core. I remember reading someone posting up saying that squats and deads would be enough. In my case it is not. So I will no longer be doing any standing press. I also have found that doing ATG squats make my knees feel un heality on my off days.
