Do not be heroic

Bit of catching up: I’ve signed up for my little powerlifting comp, and I have about 2-3 weeks left. I’ve also been recovering poorly, and I’m chronically sore in a lot of small muscles (hands/wrists/forearms, adductors, lower back, ankles) which is never a good place to be. I’m probably not adding a lot of weight to my lifts from here on out, and I want to minimize the chances of catastrophic injury (looking at you, Angry QL) so now’s not the time to get heroic.

But I still need to get some volume in. Tuesday I did some squats and deadlifts at home followed by a 5k run, and today I hit bench, along with some front squats and accessories because why not. (Woulda done back squats and DL instead of all the accessories, but my belt is at home.)

Bench – 5x5x135lb (easy peasy, right)
Front squat – 3x5x95lb (actually I can’t remember if it was 95 or 115 but we’ll just say 95)
2×10 each: Biceps, triceps, delt raises, shrugs, lat pulldowns, cable wood chops, 2×1 minute plank

I’m not sure if I’ll have a twofer today, $husband has been sick but he’s starting to feel better, he might want to lift.
