Day 97 of 365 - Lower

Warm up - elliptical 10 minutes
Foam roller and mobility work with 12k kettlebell
Deadlifts - 5 x 20k, 60k, 90k; 1 x 110k, 282lbs
Front Squats to 12" Box - 5 x BW, 20k, 85lbs; 1 x 110lbs, 130lbs

I got back on the elliptical. I really ought to do that every time. I paid enough for it.

Today was all about finding some maxes to start 5 3 1. The deadlift was better than I expected (within 10lbs of my all time PR) and entirely mental. I'll probably have a hard time falling asleep tonight because of it.

The front squats might have been better without deadlifting first, but this is what I had time for. My heaviest front squat ever was only 155, so 130 is close enough to whatever my current true max is.
