Tu | Not feeling it; fought my head the entire time in the gym.

W | Came in for Oly, warmed-up, but the hip/back was not having it. Called it.

F | Just wanted to move. Things felt good, but still can’t load that right side at the bottom of the squat. PT with Handsome Matty set for Monday. The extra ankle strap on the banded hammies REALLY helps (me to) feel it in my hammies and boo-tay. The reverse flys look really easy on tape, but man did I feel the burn mid-back during (and two days later). Check out this compelling footage:

M | I never know quite how to describe when my right shoulder/lat/tricep things get aggravated. I guess it just feels tight, and then that makes the movements feel different on that side. Yeah. So that was the case here.

The tempo RDLs were challenging. Used straps to focus on the glute/hammies. That also seems to alleviate some tension on the right shoulder region. Focused on recruiting the lat rather than my traps on the presses. Man, those got hard quick. I dropped weight every time because around rep 6 my face was doing this:

trap strain face

Tu | 86’ed the side plank in the warm-up. Couldn’t stay in the proper position; super fatigued in the QL and glute med regions. The snatches were snappy, and I worked on speed on the DUs, keeping the sets under :17. Progress on the Gladiator TGUs is good, but my shoulder started bothering me at the standing lockout position so I stopped and jumped into stretch class. 

W | Kept things light; being a little ginger with the shoulder, and getting heavy on Saturday.

I’ve logged my eats for the past 2 weeks. My protein intake seems to range from around 90g-120g per day; the days I up the carbs for lifting I see I tend to fall short on the protein. Gonna implement some summer supps (protein powder) because I want the mass. All in my butt. Kidding. And my hammies! There are a couple contributing factors, but I’m feeling really fucking great. My skin, however, seems to hate me right now. Will watch the dairy and see what happens.
