    felt like I had 285 in the tank. it was really hard to not keep squatting but this single working set of 3 has been helping me break through plateaus without hurting the back, so I feel like i'm making progress. my working set of 3 could have easily been 4. maybe even 5 reps. but I just didn't want to test fate. I hit my goal, then hung it up.

  3. Squats felt super heavy today but I pushed through for the gains. #rebuilding.

    Slight back pain but pushed through cause I'm hunting this weekend so I have time to heal.

  4. Seems like your back is a lot better and can finally squat now and making gains.

  5. for the most part it seems to be doing much better! I went off grid for 4 days to go hunting so this week i'm trying to pick things back up.

    super happy with squats. still moving up and feeling better and better all the time. 275 was 95% pain free. i'm squatting a little bit wider, getting my butt back a little bit more, and not going a single inch past parallel. all of these things seem to be working.

    the power cleans were just me killing time waiting for the GF to finish her class.

    notes
    wanted 270 x 3 but overall i'm happy because each session so far the weight has gone up 5lbs and I'm squatting the most I've squatted since I believe 2015! I think this is the first time I've squatted 280 since december 2015 so almost 2 full years.

    yup, found it. 290lbs To Infinity.... and Beyond!
    on 12/3/2015.

    still a bit sore, but getting better.

    wod
    5 rounds
    9 x 20lb wallballs
    6 x 135lb back squats
    3 x 135lb front squats

  9. nice, slowly getting there! got a cool breathing cue from china, they basically do this with everything, especially the squats, pulls and oly lifts, they don't try to push the stomache out or expand it, they breathe more into the chest and whole body, and tighten the abs or making the stomache small, maybe this might help aswell, would try it out with very light weight thoug since it goes against conventional teaching and needs some getting used to

  10. that's actually pretty similar to what I do. tightening the abs/diaphragm and also curling my big toes seems to help keep upper body tight and activate the glutes.

    all warmup sets hurt
    1st 275 rep was not deep enough by a long shot
    after 3rd rep I felt like I had 2 more in me.
    so all in all, decent day with a hard wod. i'm super unconditioned.

  16. Squats are really coming a long

  17. Its such a mental game for me. huge mental barrier with the pain. I honestly dont know if I have an injury or if its all in my head.

    probably both, the body might say discomfort and the brain may send the signal, i was injured there, better back off make him feel pain

    I got 3 rounds + 25 wallballs and 10 dips before I had to call it and take off because I was out of time. but man am I out of shape! a wod like that probably wouldn't have taken me more than 15 minutes before tops, and this took 21ish. Still, feeling like things are coming along.

    I have done a lot of reading and honestly it does seem totally plausible that many back injuries are in the head. It doesn't necessarily mean it doesn't hurt, but there seems to be a neurological connection where sometimes back pain can't be explained by a current actual injury but overly sensitive pain receptors that knew pain was there at one point, and now my possibly be working overtime to protect you from re-injuring the area....

    which kinda makes sense to me for a lot of reasons. especially since sometimes if I work through the pain, I have zero repercussion the next day. I feel fine. but you'd think if I was truly irritating an actual injury i'd be miserable the next day. There are also those people who deal with back pain for a year or two then suddenly its gone and they dont know why.

    notes
    the 280 was supposed to be a set of 3. First rep was way too shallow cause it was too painful on the lower back. second rep was closer. third rep was money. fourth rep felt great and I almost went for a double or triple, but then I was out of time. I probably had quite a few more reps in me. at that rate.

    I'm sorta surprised I didn't get my 3x5 at 245 today, but I'll come back to that weight on my next session and try again. I'm making a bigger effort to do some heavier assistance work, such as the weighted dips. supplements seem to be on par, creatine is back in the system.

    Also got a new inzer belt last night. It's not a lever, it's a single buckle.

    I have one issue with my new belt though. my ideal setting for it is probably between two holes right now. I'm not sure what do do about that. I can't get the belt quite as tight as I want it. the tightest I can get it is a hair looser than I want. I'll keep practicing with it, but open to ideas if you have any!

  25. they make really solid belts and my other other, lever kind, i had to start drill holes into it since i lost so much weight. that could be an option, though i don't know how well there regular belts are built.
