maxresdefault[1]Today I saddled up squats and dead lift, an abnormal pairing in most books.  I tried some heavier weight with the squats, pushing up 185 and then 205lbs.  I still felt that odd weakness on my right side at the bottom of the lift but not as severely as the week before so I am hoping this is a diminishing problem.

With dead lifts I one repped at 345lbs and felt shitty doing it. I am using a slow pace getting back into more intense/heavier lower body training.

For the first time in a few years I am having a recurrence of tendonitis like feelings in my left arm despite my daily forearm stretching regimen to prevent it.  It hurts pretty significantly during pull ups and makes grip intensive things like dead lifts less fun.
