Powerslave - Squat Day
Unfortunately, no squatting actually got done today. The pain in my knees still hasn't left, despite feeling fine the majority of the time. Time to see my Chiro guy again. Also found that jumping into chins every workout isn't the greatest approach, so I'll be making some tweaks to the program. Other notes: I added a pause between reps at the bottom of my OH presses to eliminate bouncing/the stretch reflex. Hopefully it'll help strengthen my sticking point. I'm also feeling chins almost entirely in my bis, so I'm going to read up more on pull-up technique and ways to strengthen those straight away, rather than go from chins into pull-ups.
Glute Ham Raises:
BW +15lbs 1x3
+ 15lbs 1x3 (could only get about 2/3 of the way up on these)
+ 5lbs 2x3
+ 5lbs 1x2 (only got half way on the 3rd rep)
Lat Pull Downs:
2x 45sec w/ 45lbs
Oh yeah, my lower back felt fine today, if not more stable and stronger, so it looks like the volume for it on Deads Day shall remain as is. My calves on the other hand... Crazy DOMS at the moment, figures!
