Today was the perfect example of why I am only trying to make it into the gym twice a week. From the minute I woke up this morning it was non-stop running to get things done. My wife took care of our newborn and I spent the morning and early afternoon running errands, cleaning, and fixing a dish to take to a family reunion. I still didn’t get everything done that needed done and my wife felt rushed to get ready as we had friends coming over to meet Benjamin tonight, but I still managed to get a decent squat and deadlift training session in. Here’s how it broke down:
It felt good to move a little weight today. The squats felt heavy, but I felt like I had good technique and the weight moved relatively fast. Give me a few weeks and they will feel good again. It just feels like I’m working muscles that haven’t done anything in a while, which in reality is what I am doing. The deadlifts felt pretty good. I kept the weight light and just focused on good technique and moving the weight fast.
