dont-be-that-guy[1]So my lower back and legs were feeling rather tight and sore from my treadmill 5k yesterday.  I was considering that as an excuse to bypass squats and dead lifts but after reading IronLoo’s inspirational post this morning I discarded that as a valid excuse.

I actually felt pretty solid with my few ITB squats, getting new recent best at 185 and 205 pounds.  My dead lifts seemed to suffer more from the 5K.  The weight felt heavy.  My one pull at 365 felt like 385 did last week, the only difference being I barely managed to complete the lift today.
