Today's main focus points were: Squats.
28 May 2020
This week I am going to try and improve my lifts a little, I don't have mega heavy weight, but I will give myself a challenge still, today is squat day.
Due to some seriously bad back issues I've has over the past few years, I've not been able to squat heavy & I've been getting pysio for this, but unfortunately due to COVID-19 I've obviously not been able to get this.
I have been doing all my exercises though & my back is holding steady so I have been doing lighter weight squats to get me back into it, so today I'm going to go for really quality reps at a light weight still, but heavier than I've been able to go for a while.
* Update: I didn't intend on going as heavy as I did on the back squats. I know it's not very heavy, but considering anything above 60kg has been giving my back so much grief over the past few years it was actually a miracle and such a good feeling to get back above 100kg. I will be back up to my 1rep max of 160kg in no time! Video evidence if you don't believe me ↓

Just realised that the MACROS for the past two days have been worked out wrong percentage wise (only fo the pie chart everything else is accurate) as I hadn't multiplied the protein & carbs by 4 or the fats by 9 so they were just sitting at percentages of the actual numbers whereas now they're updated above with the correct percentage value for the amount of calories per MACRO overall.
Unfortunately I will not be able to train at gyms for the foreseeable, this is due to COVID-19 & the government are closing all gyms in the interest of us all. Social distancing is very important at this moment in time so I will be following these guidelines and training from home.
This does; however, mean that my training will take a knock and the schedule will have to change, but this is where we find out what we're made of and what we can achieve just with pure will power.
