Have I mentioned lately that I love log? Because I do.  I did the log pressing first today for a couple of reasons, and it went well.  I was a bit in my head during the first set and had trouble reracking the log. I failed rep 3 and decided to just take the double and regroup. Then on the first clean on the second set, I nearly passed out.  I was a little too aggressive with the clean and I was experimenting with a different method of breathing – not topping off my air in the rack. I decided oxygen is necessary going forward.  So, I put the log down, undid my belt, and reset.  I came back and knocked out 3 reps without even recleaning the log. I was very happy with this effort and looking forward to seeing what I can put up next time.

I moved onto squats and I decided to try squatting in a belt and knee sleeves for the first time.  I was surprised how nice it was, except for putting on knee sleeves in a hot gym of course.  Squats felt very strong today.  I am enjoying back squatting quite a bit.

The barbell hip thrusts are kind of a pain, but they are good for me. I finished up with the calf raises which are going great.

I’m pretty stoked for the log PR.  A very solid day for me.
