Been feeling run down all day. Not much in the way of energy. It was hard dragging myself to the power rack. I got my prescribed reps on box squats and decided to reward myself with a little fun.
I got a pair of Centurion Briefs at the beginning of December and have yet to use them. Today, I was going to bust my cherry - so to speak. I didn't think there was much chance of me getting down to 12", so I upped the box to 13" and gave it a go.
My first attempt was high. I did a couple reps with nothing on my back to show myself I could hit the depth and my next set at 315 was cake. Squatting with briefs is a bit different.
My left bicep is pretty tweaked. I used a double overhanded grip with wrist straps to take the strain of my bicep. I wouldn't have been able to deadlift otherwise. At the moment, grip isn't my problem. Raw strength is. I got some decent reps in and that was what really mattered.
Despite feeling wiped out, I was able to hike just a bit north of vag and get some work down. Pops would be proud.
