This evening was cool, and I was feeling strong. Time for a low rep, no sweat workout. I did the following:
Kettlebell Deadlifts: 5x16k, 24k, 32k
Deadlifts: 5x135; 3x185; 3x225; 1x275 (Ties PR); 3x225; 1x135
Front Squats: 1x45, 95, 115, 135 (PR), 115;
Back Squats: 1x115, 135, 155, 165 (Ties PR), 115
V-bar (between sets) 2x1/1x90; 5x1/1x115; 1/1x135
That's it. Strong workout, that squat PR has stood for years. I had more in me, but this is the first time I've back squatted in a long time. On every single lift it was evident that I am all back. My pushing muscles need to get stronger to balance things out. I could also feel that the imbalance in my hip rotation is ultimately going to be a limiting factor with heavier weights.
Luckily, it looks like what I am doing with the lighter weights is working. I will stick with it. I think part of the reason I am all back is that the kettlebell snatches effectively have me pulling 4 days a week. If I start doing turkish get ups on my upper day, that may help balance things out. I also need to put squats first on my lower day.
Back to the grind next workout. Still not sure if that will be Friday morning or Saturday, but I am looking forward to it.
