Back squat isn’t really unexpected, but still glad to get it now ”already” after the crash. Depth is pretty much spot on valid(?) and not deeper, but I know it’s only because I was ”afraid” of the weight. Think there’s more in the tank especially considering how smashed I’ve been since Saturdays test day, with fresher piriformis I’m aiming for another 5-10kg!
Never done max strict CTB before, so some kind of PB. Front Squats felt really good.
Another no-surprise was how slow Diane went. Had done the 15’s DL after about 2 mins, but then the HSPU’s left the building. ”Maybe” cause of the 60 HSPU’s and more shoulder related stuff I did Saturday..
AMRAP in the end was quite gnarly, row sucked big time and I walked around with pumped forearms for a good 5-10 mins.
Just a few more days to Fittest in Cape Town, and even though I didn’t get to prepare as I wished for this one, I feel strong and confident I will do good.
