Starting Strength #29A

Weight: 224.9

Squats:  2x5xBar / 5×105 / 3×155 / 2×210 / 5×265 / 2x5x240

Top set felt heavy today. Still trying to figure out my depth. I feel like I’m not hitting the spot I need to hit consistently. This usually results in me either going too low which causes me to expend more energy than needed. Or not low enough.

Bench:   2x5xBar / 5×70 / 3×100 / 2×130 / 5-3×145 / 5×130

Stalled pretty hard on the second set. First set was a grinder. Coach recommended I back off on the last set. Going to try for 145 again on Friday. Coach indicated that I need to mentally think about squeezing my shoulder blades together and keeping them together before each rep.

Lever Rows: 3x12x80

These are new. Got a big pump from doing these. Coach indicated that I should not be feeling my forearms being engorged and pulling the lever with my forearms and instead focus on making sure I’m pulling from my back.
