In all honesty today’s session lacked intensity. After a long drive and moving back in on campus, my mind and body were toast before I even hit the gym. On a positive note, I outperformed my expectations on front squats today. This is a movement that I have very little experience with due to shoulder issues that have bothered me since playing football in high school. Recently, with mobility work and healing time, I have been able to start putting a heavier workload on my shoulders which has allowed me to get into some heavy front squats. The auxiliary and supplementary movements went by in a blur and by the end of the session I was worn out and ready to back-load some carbs. Monday will be a nice day to rest my body and catch up on homework/meetings so that I can hit it hard for heavy incline benching on Tuesday.
