Decided to start a journal here. Nog intro, just straight to weights.

Ive beenhaving problems with my lower back lately, so i made a foam roller and will focus on my OHP for the next three weeks by utilizing Smolov Jr. I did Smolov Jr for my deadlift and it worked wonderfully, im hoping it will help me break through a plateau on OH lifts.

Accessory work will alternate between Hip Belt Squats(using a dip belt) and light Sumo Deadlifts(focusing on utilizing glutes and hip drive) and lots of stretching, foam rolling and heavy back/upper back work.

Here is the first workout from yesterday. Was short on time because of work so i did this in about 30 minutes, had to leave out light sumos

Did some foam rolling before starting lifting for about 10-15 minutes
