AM CFSB-Discretion is the better part of Valor

or somesuch.

Was going for 3x3 heavy squats, but dang if it just wasn't going to happen today.

1) get under bar, try and adjust wrist position from a bent to a straight wrist, while keeping elbows back and high . . . ouch! Shoulder rotator cuff thingy is sooore.

2) get that kind of managed, lift up 125 off the redneck squat rack . . take a step back, start to squat, yowza. Something ain't right. Low back is sore. And squats don't usually make it sore, I'll feel some tightness at the end of the motion, in the bottom position, but this man, knees coming forward, losing hamstring engagement. I just couldn't keep it together. So thoughts of say 175lb triplet just flitting away.

3) Back off, try another tack. Maybe I'm just realllly stiff and sore still from "The Chief". Do some with just the bar. Fine. Do some squats with 85lbs. Fine. Put some more on the bar, and try again and no way Jose. Just not gonna happen. By this time, I gotta get the kids up for school and make some breakfast and lunches, so may have to wait till night time to see if we can pick up where we left off.

Ouch. I gotz zero.
