first day Ive felt ready to work and not in pain in about 4 weeks. This ended up biting me in the butt since I was so excited I forgot my conversation with my coach Gaglione about using the SSB. Well I went straight bar and finished my work but my triceps paid for it the rest of the evening. Squats went well, bracing felt good, and stance was solid. I got to follow these up with deadlifts which I particularly. This pre fatigues me so when I get to work on a lift I am usually smoked at by the time my third deadlift attempt comes around on meet day. In addition to the fatigue variable was the 3 mat deficit, this is a particularly difficult position for me to pull from as my back (in general) is one of my weakest links.
