Did technique work on squats, deep, paused reps with the bar to finish off the squats. I think that is what made my right glute sore today. Which suggest in some sense it may be 'rehabbing' whatever is broken about my squats right now? Will see.

Monday
BP 6x50(paused), 6x72.5, 6x71, 5Fx71, 6x62.5(paused)
Dips 10xBW, 8xBW, 8xBW
Bike 20min

Got a reality check on my bench ambitions. Apparently unless i take creatine and guzzle gatorade during workouts, im incapable of benching a set of 71kg without failing. And to add insult to injury i didn't bother setting safety pins (for 70kg which used to be a warmup) so i failed it on top of my chest and had to wiggle my way out .. no one seemed to notice which somehow made it worse. I had hoped i could just cruise up to my old worksets 2.5kg/week thanks to the memory effect. No such thing exists it seems. Wish i spent all that time injured on upper body, i prob would have something decent to show for the last 6 months instead of failing warmup weights lol. Or at least just maintain something .. blah. All good, just have to start from scratch i guess.
