Legs felt a bit tired upon waking up, but still stumbled into the gym just after 7am.

At 6pm this same day, my quads feel a bit sore but my lower back has no noticable pain.


Points to consider

  • 155lb for 5x10 with 5 to 7 minute rests
  • successful reps: 10, 10, 10, 10, 10
  • See the back vid to notice the left side of the bar going lower than the right. How to fix?
  • Next time I'll try to focus on a more even bar. My tendancy is to feel like the right hand is losing grip and that's an indication of asymmetry.
  • I think that bar isn't being centered properly on my back based on the view of the center knurling relative to my neck.

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 5x5 @ 80lb with 3 to 4 min rests
  • Didn't feel too hard and most of the reps felt fluid


Points to consider

  • 1x5 @ 215lb
  • Ripped pant at knee during warmup. still finished the sets, but the torn need was annoying and slightly threw off my form as I wasn't trying to increase the size of the tear
  • Careful of lower back. I was able to concentrate on hamstring/glute engagement, but the torn pant leg was throwing off my attention in the later reps of the final set
