Squaterday

Squats started out quite rough today.  Woke up with old man angry knees and my lower back was still sore from Sundays deadlift session.  Kept pushing forward and ended up with a half decent session though.

Just means I pause for a second at the bottom instead of 'bouncing' the lift.  ;)

I thought the same thing reading the shoulder press entry from 2 days ago, but it's actually why I like reading the journals here.  Just when I think I'm getting strong, I see someone here lifting way more than I do, and motivates me to work even harder!

I love the haters in that thread, btw, you were clearly in the zone and had skinny fat non-lifting miscer manlets trying to disrupt your sesh.  I would have either responded the same way OR just been like "phcuk it" and grabbed more plates myself...more plate carrying from the other side of the gym = more hypertrophy = more gainz = more bishes = win.

Not a bad start to the week.  Shoulder played nice and I made some meagre improvement on the bench press.  Freewieght area was pure madness so I did incline barbell press after the flat, which I never do, and was therefore quite weak.

Had a decent day in the squat rack.  No new ground, but I felt pretty good; was more like a workout as opposed to be being beaten into submission by gravity.
