Well I went into tonight's workout thinking I might not get my reps as I got very little sleep last night and felt really bagged and sluggish all day. This went away as soon as I got a set in and the Slayer playing. All of the weight tonight felt light but the sleep deprivation was starting to kick in during my last couple of work sets of pulls so I terminated them one rep short. No biggie.

The pulls were all going very fast until about mid-thigh where the bar would drag on my shorts and sweaty thigh. I think I need to continue the rack pulls and maybe talc the fronts of my thighs a bit for full pulls in the future.

I didn't get my gripper work in today but I'll hammer them hard tomorrow and start getting some axle pulls in on Saturday's whatever day.
