Notes

The back squats were heavy, but well within limits. 95 on the back felt good, all the way down into the hole with no sticking point on the way up. It’s what you want in a room with a skinny chrome bar, a freestanding rack and bare iron plates. It’s also a good indication that it might not be too much of an ask to trump a 102.5kg PR, given what’s possible with the confidence of a cage and safety bars.

Helton was a long, hard, steady grind. Pete came in to say hi just after the first round. He asked if I was feeling good. I said no, and he advised scaling back the reps or rounds, but that really misses the point of this kind of work. The training effect here presents itself when the physical urge to call it quits kicks in, and you choose instead to do another rep.
