Mat pulls (7)
495 x 10
Birthday gift to myself. Aw, I shouldn't have! Weight is feeling very light. Hopefully this time I've ironed out my kinks for real and won't hit a dead end as I go lower. I recall last year having a deadlift day and failing at something like 435x5 so this is payback.

SSB squats
340 x 2 x 5
Gonna try out cutting a set and see if my recovery improves for squat day.

Neck crunches
45 x 2 x 10

Gliding leg curls
Decent exercise I got from Bret Contreras in want of a non-back loading way to isolate the hamstrings at home in lieu of a GHR machine. I tried single leg but it didn't feel good on the knee, maybe it'll come with practice. It also taxes my grip and gives a forearm pump.

Crush gripper #1
10, 10
Whoa, actually JUST came short of closing the 2.


  1. Awesome news on the gripper. Closing the 2 is a huge milestone, I'm excited for when you get there.

  2. Thanks, it was a completely random attempt to see what I could do. I've never been good at these things before with my small joints, haha.
