    They’re not that expensive on eBay. The pic below also has the option to buy a full set for 60

    Tough today am tired anyway and then i was focusing hard on bracing everything and form so the squats went slowly. They looked good i think though. Good depth and heels behaved. Yuss

    I had lasagne about an hour before I had to go for a deadlift triple at RPE 8.

    I basically became a tube of toothpaste being squeezed except the toothpaste had been replaced by lasagne.

    It was nice but I hadn't wanted to taste it again.

    Back home back to action

    Non prog 30 12

    Squat
    84kg nice
    92kg x1 v nice, happiest with this, super depth and form good
    100kg x1 bit of fwd lean but nice
    106kg x1 same as above
    112kg x1 more lean
    116kg x1 very fwd lean but better than the 115kg last year
    Figured out how to sit back more and did it on the 92 but panicked as usual on the heavier weights and went back to leaning on the way down which means more lean on the way up
    If I work on the form there and really drill it at the 92-96kg mark I think I'll make strides as its what's holding me back on the PRs

    Backoff doubles
    100kg xx

    Bench
    46kg easy
    52kg x
    56kg x ffs stop windmilling elbows
    52kg tempo-ish sets of 3 mostly focusing on elbows: xxx

    Also i bought the spin bike ahhh
    Hopefully have it next week

    Waiting for new prog from coach. Requested squat singles so I can work on form but did the old program again today anyway

    Emergency foam rolling as my lower back is in paiiiin - tight muscle kind of pain - too much couch time and not enough foam rolling after heavy lifts. Much better already

    Speedy session

    Got the RP diet app and my spin bike arrived. Gona up the activity levels as lockdown life is not agreeing with me
