Well deloading tonight so I just went with moderate/medium workload. Squats felt super easy. All reps were rock bottom and I did the first two work sets with a good pause at the bottom.

Saxon bar 2HP felt great. I completed usually the first 3-4 reps of each work set touch and go.
Mad frigging respect to Josh McIntyre and his crazy wrist strength! He's a PL and not a puller and is doing crazy reps with plate wrist curls and plate curls.

Finished off with some wrist rocker work to get some blood into the forearms and to work the wrists a bit.
