Monday’s squats went surprisingly well, the gym was packed and I was worried I’d get distracted but I managed to pull through and complete all my squats successfully. I’m still trying to find my groove so some sets were faster than others but I finally feel like everything is starting to come together again. My left knee slightly bugged me, but nothing serious and my back was surprisingly fine, so that was a plus.

Tuesday’s bench was awesome. This was my first time hitting over 100% for multiple singles and they all felt pretty darn good! I’m keeping my eyes on that 250! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next couple months. For the first time in forever I’m actually confident benching.

Wednesday was supposed to be a light accessory day; sadly I missed it because of work and couldn’t make it in. I decided to add the exercises into Thursday and Friday to make sure I get the work in.

Thursday’s bench session was once again successful. I was still sore from Tuesday’s bench so the fact I got through all 5 sets of 3 without struggle was pretty awesome!

Friday was the first time I’ve deadlifted since May. I was very anxious to see how it’d go. Luckily, my back held up with minimal pain. Although it wasn’t anything special I was just happy to be able to deadlift again. My back is slightly irritated but it’s not the same feeling as before which is a bonus. I’ll be sure to back off if anything feels unusual. The speed today wasn’t the greatest, but it wasn’t slow either so I can’t really complain. I’m excited to be able to deadlift again!

I’m going to attempt to do some conditioning this weekend since I slacked hard this week and need work in this area/
