I generally get a bit overexcited on intensity days and was kind of freaking out a bit this morning. So, I did some breathing excersizes at home before the gym. A good guided one about positive visualisation which left me with calm happy vibes.
Squat - I got 4 reps out at 105kg. I went forward on the last rep and ugly as it was, I did get it up. Nothing in the tank for more reps in that set though.
So that I didn't just spend the weekend replaying ugly, ugly squats in slow motion, I took another set of three. The form redeemer. Wipe that shit right outta there. Three good solid reps at 105kg.
The deads felt good all the way up to my working weight. Much better, less over-thunk start position meant no pain and felt strong off the ground.
I moved the rep weight up 2.5kg from last week and took 7 at 122.5kg which is a PB.
It felt totally awesome to grind through hard reps with solid form. Magic. I love it when you know you're working but you can kind of enjoy the grind and get surprised when the reps keep coming.
Then I vacuumed the floor, laid on the floor and ate all of the sausages.
A good day. Really happy.
