After a week off of no power lifts (except for some moderate benching and front squats) this morning marked a return to the bro-split. I decided that I need to throttle down the volume from the past 6 months to allow myself to heal up a bit with a nagging left quad strain and left oblique strain.
350×3,4 Squat top sets. (061A) Arg. Difficult morning, that left quad strain is hampering my comfort in the squat. First clip was a mess: depth and upper body tightness just not there. After three reps I decided to rerack and try for more. Training a bro-split for the next block to give my body some rest. 4 weeks out. ………………….. https://defeatgiantrobots.wordpress.com …………………… #531 #lowerbody #wendler531 #notabodybuilder #trapsoverabs #bodybuilding #powerlifting #powerlifter #squat #weighttraining #milwaukee #swoleandpasty #atg #functionalfitness #atg #milwaukeefitness #PWRLFT #anytimefitness

Difficult morning, that left quad strain is hampering my comfort in the squat, even if my depth is largely unaffected. The first clip was a mess, especially the depth on the first rep and my overall upper body tightness just not there. After three reps I decided to rerack and try for more.
I’m 4 weeks out from my next meet and prior to this meet there will be no peaking cycle, just a week deload before.
Roll out of bed and lift heavy.
