Workouts of the Week

Happy Sunday! 

Matt's parents were in from New York for the week, so it was nice to spend time with them. Saturday we all went out for pizza for Matt's birthday. 
 This is one of our top fave New York style pizza places. It's so good.

Workouts were good this week. Squats felt strong, and my back is feeling better. I did block pulls this week with a sumo stance and they were 10x easier... so I probably should do them conventional and not go for what's easier, right? ;) Friday I used 50s on chest press for the first time in a while and was really surprised to get 8 reps. They felt strong!

Deficit deadlifts Saturday were still freaking hard for me, but what's hard at the moment is going to be what makes you better! I tried to do front squats this week, and after the few reps decided not to risk it and did leg press instead. I hate it because front squats are such a good exercise, but it's the only thing that really causes actual pain in my back. It's weird because back squats are completely fine. 

One more week of this leg program!  It's definitely been hard, but I do feel stronger. Now gotta decide what to go with next-write out my own workouts or find another program to follow. I do want to stick with higher reps for lower body(nothing less than 6 except for deads).
