Woke up feeling dizzy for a few minutes, which is not normal for me, but the effect dissipated so I decided to go forward with the workout.


Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 220lb with 5 to 10 min rests
  • I didn't feel particularly strong, but still managed to finish!
  • I was coming into the balls of my feet a bit when coming out of the hole :\
  • Still not getting the hips to move straight up as I think they're coming a bit forward. Next time concentrate on not going too deep, a little more acute back angle and hips up (and slightly back) from the bottom. The 185lb warmup form is closer to how I was the heavy weight form to look

Overhead press

Points to consider

  • 3x5 @ 100lb with 5 min rests
  • Successful reps: 3, 2, 1
  • This went terribly today and I'm not really sure why!?! Maybe I really was just tired


Points to consider

  • 1x5 @ 245lb
  • Judging from the press performance and due to time pressure, I dropped my work set to 245
