An easy pulling day today. Feeling good, but also trying to save a little bit of power for Saturday’s bench pressing contest.
I used the speed pulls to experiment with setup since I’ve been feeling like I’m not as efficient as I used to be with my setup. My body feels different at this weight, and since I’m still rebuilding from the hip injury. I definitely felt like I learned some things. Hopefully I can put that into action next week.
Good mornings are feeling solid. I’ll probably change the version here soon. I feel like I get more out of this movement when I’m not struggling to hold the bar by the last rep.
Rows needed some calibration, but I got dialed in well. I went easy on the pullups and shrugs, and I skipped the speed pressing to keep my pressing power available for Saturday.
Feeling refreshed after this session.
