Back Squats, Saxon Bar and Some More Pinching

January 19, 2012
Before Supper

1a) Back Squats - Oly Bar - Heavy
45 x 5, 5
135 x 5
215 x 5 was supposed to be 225 but didn't read right
335 x 3, 3
405 x 1
415 x 1
425 x 1, 1, 1
270 x 5 my hand got caught up in my safety chain at the bottom and buggered me up so I stopped there. Feeling very easy though.

1b) Saxon Bar - Sumo Pulls - Med
155 x 5
175 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

Hubbing a 45 x 3/2, 5/5

My TTK w/10# x 5/5, 5/5

Squats are feeling really good and continue to go up. I was really hoping my knee wraps came in today to try but apparently it's not the 20th today lol.

My IT bands were a bit tight so I hit the foam roller for a bit before kicking off tonight's workout. Didn't do fak all. The tightness left for the 2nd set at 335 so I think that's the only cure. Funny I don't recall them bothering me with SSB squats.

I also had a bunch of pain in the left elbow getting into position. Did some different pull aparts and they seemed to help a little.

Took it easy with the Saxon bar and had reps left in me. During the hubbing and TTK I was getting cramps in the middle of my hands. I listened. That's enough pinch for today.

My extensors are also plagued by DOMS today from the axle cleans yesterday. Neat!
