Squat technique work is slowly improving and I'm starting to get some speed back in the movement now that I'm starting to get used to the new sequencing. My adductors on my right side were a little balky so I had to re-ramp my weights mid-workout to let things warm-up better.
Deadlifts were supposed to be a reset week but I felt good so I pushed it a bit. The top set was hard as the squats had taken a little starch out of my pulls. I think it's about time to start alternating hard weeks so that one session I'm squatting heavy and deadlifting for speed and vice versa the next week. Classic Provincials are about 14 weeks away so that leaves seven heavy workouts for each lift. Time sure flies when you count it like that.
Squats: 135x10, 135x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x1, 275x5, 295x5, 315x5, 315x5
Deadlifts: 315x5, 405x5, 455x5, 485x3, 405x1
After the workout, I tried out a recipe I had seen for shredded yams. I used a sweet potato instead of a yam and I used a couple slices of bacon instead of coconut oil and cocoa powder. I wanted the sweet/savoury thing instead of sweet/sweet. Turned out pretty good.
