Entry #1132

Went to the gym yesterday and did a combined lower body day. Tried doing barbell squats for the first time in over a year.

135 x 5
225 x 5
405 x 1
> Terminated the set. I can unrack the bar okay but I can't keep tight enough to squat properly. Pitched forward, was wobbily as hell, etc. despite the weight being light. I think the way to go forward is to keep on the SSB and do straight bar as assistance.

390 x 5
445 x 3
490 x 1
> Wasn't feeling good on this so I just hit the required single and stopped. Not worried, once I get back to Portland I'll hit some bigger numbers with a dedicated deadlift day.

Bulgarian split-squats:
70 x 5
85 x 5
90 x 5
> These feel great on my quad when restricted to a low range and heavy weight. Bringing these back in.

Hanging leg raises

Made a kickass smoothie after with coconut milk, raw egg yolks, whey protein (chocolate though, ugh), and frozen berries.
