Front Squats
45x10
95x5
115x5
135x5
185x3
205x1
230x2x3


Heard a pop in my upper back followed by pain on the last set. I'm having pain there walking, loading plates, or just sitting or standing still. Obviously called it a day there with the front squats. Hopefully this heals in a week. On reflection, this is my own fault. The injury is in the exact area where I have mobility issues and always wake up tight. I get neck pain too and it all goes away there when I stretch my neck, which I haven't been doing. Lesson learned. Maybe I should start yoga classes to keep myself limber. Squats were easy though. Just got my new goddamn neck harness today from APT pro gear (great customer service there btw, they sent me a new, stronger neck harness quickly at zero charge), wanted to get my yoke on, fuck. I'll put the grip work on hold too, which I have no problem doing actually. I could probably not do anything for my grip until 8 weeks out and get it up to par by meet time. I wont, but I bet I could.

Failed on first attempt at getting a rep, got the second but it was a grinder so I just called it done. I had no pain going overhead in my upper back but maybe the injury is what caused my strength to regress. I'll repeat next week.
