Finally…FINALLY broke into the 2-hundos (lbs) on my front squat! Nearly a 4kg/8lb pr at 93kg/203lbs. This pic is when I finally hit 91kg/200lbs and then went on to hit 93kg/203lbs. Next stop…break into 3-digit (kg) front squat. Glad to see my strength going up even though lift numbers have been kind of stalled 😒.

Wait for it…another day of these 5×3 3-second/no rest at top back squats, reps 2 & 3. Got me good at the end there. This was at 84kg/185lbs, went onto get 88kg/195lbs after. In a month I’ve increased 20lbs in these sets!

I swear I’m not crying here 😂 but it was definitely one of those training days…it was in the 🚽. Only thing that went okay were pausing snatch pulls. Failed reps I can normally nail. These days happen. Still get 😡 tho.
