Today’s 4 hour session was fun. Over the week I managed to accomplish the 500 squats (did more but with an improper assistance technique of a high elevation, so I didn’t count those ones, but I did do them okay). Every day, especially doing those squats, I felt a little stronger. I’m finding my recovery rather slow in general lately, and I’m even taking a glutamine supplement which should be helping.
We covered a number of variations and assistance lifts that will help in doing primary lifts today. I’m going to continue to work on the Sumo Deadlifts as I find them much better for me in general. Someday, I will get back to doing the Deadlift variation, but not quite yet I don’t think. Still have some work to do there.
No class next Sunday since a whole host of us are busy or out of town. I’m also going to be out of upper body commission for about a week, so I will be focusing on lower body for a while. This will just get me even better for when class resumes.
