    Sunday:

    Squats: 1*8 (70Kg), 1*5 (90Kg), 3*5 (100Kg)

    Was on my last set and some guy came into the gym that was a really similar build to me. He came in and was seriously squatting ATG. It made me really look at my own depth and i was prob getting to parallel on 100kg, if even. So I decided to drop the ego, take all the weight off the bar and try learning to squat again.

    ATG Squats: 1*10 (20Kg), 1*10 (30Kg), 1*8 (40Kg), 1*5 (50Kg), 1*5 (60Kg), 1*5 (70Kg), 1*5 (80Kg), 1*5 (85Kg), 2*5 (90Kg)

    If I am totally honest, the 90kgs lift were itching higher than ATG so I shouldnt have pushed it that heavy but I felt amazing. I didnt think my mobility allowed me to go this deep. So happy that dude walked in. I was so impressed with myself on how low I could squat and hit numbers not miles away from my usual. I have a new purpose in life- to squat 100Kg+ ATG.

    Need to make sure I dont have too much lumbar flexion on these so I will ask someone to have a look or take a video next time. It may be the case as I have had issues with this before, hence reason for only squatting to parallel.

    For my records: 5th Metatarsal broken. 17th Jan. No training for first two weeks of Jan before break.

    8 weeks out. May attempt some light upper body if I get put in a boot. At the moment in back slab.

    Not training the last few weeks is taking its toll on me. Zero energy, more irritable. Miss it!

    Those squats were very difficult, from a cardio and leg strength perspective. Foot ballooned out this weekend so not sure if they are related.
