    Happy with the top set after last week's dip in e1RM. Still trying to stay detached from good or bad days. I think my low back needs to grow. It's the weak link in squats and deads. I have been skipping a lot of the posterior chain work because my glute has been hurting, but I have to figure something out.

    Had my wife give commands on warmups and a few of the singles. I didn't jump the rack command on the top single, but I did on some warmups and drop sets. Oh well, that's why I'm practicing. Only a slight pinching feeling in the pec after this, but otherwise things have been feeling OK.

    Nice work. What do you have in mind for lower back work, given that your glute pain is a restraint?

    I'm not going to change anything before the meet since it's so close and growing a bigger back is a long term strategy. The glute pain has lessened, so I think I should be able to get back into those supplemental exercises. A restoration block after the meet would be helpful, as I haven't done that in the year that I've been with RTS.

    10/10 specificity. It's a really, really slow way to accumulate volume, though...
