Bike - 20 mins


Notes:
Squat still remains vanished. Im losing hope :/ I think ive identified the principal reason: quad mass wasting. I find i can bounce the squat up pretty well but then i hit the sticking point HARD and i have no drive left to finish the lift. Subsequently, i fold over at the waist allowing my hamstrings to loosen, unlock the knees, then i can complete the lift using my superior erector strength. This is obviously a technical failure b/c i should not be doing squats this way if my goal is (and always was) to train for leg strength. Now what? In the past i got my leg strength up using a belt and doing heavy squats. It's mentally defeating to put on a belt to do hard AF reps with what i was previously repping raw and yet im not able to do much better than that with my current levels of quad strength. No idea how to go about fixing this..

Notes:
Didnt really go into deep sleep, not sure why(maybe late workout yesterday ..). BCAAs are a game changer. I wish i had tried them sooner because it was the one thing which would have made intermittent fasting actually work well for me. That Martin guy made it seem like it was optional but now im convinced IF done right must involve BCAAs, at least as far as cutting is concerned.

Notes:
Finally failed a squat! It was a good run. I think it was april that i last failed a rep. Woooho. But i think part of it was i chose not to complete a dirty rep. The positive to take from today's workout was i felt i was able to challenge my legs for the first time in ages. Hopefully this will get my squat going again. Belt helps for this as well. Great. Watch this space.

Notes:
Decision made that i'll end cutting end of June. If July 1st, i'm 12% or 18%, that's where i'll stop. Going to get dexa body comp scan and thyroid function test same time as well.
edit. Actually if the dexa is above 15% i keep dieting til i have lost enough weight to be 15% or less and then stop.

Haha yeah I think the point of a pause squat is to pause for at least 1s which would be visible on video. Maybe adjust for a longer pause next time.

every squat is a pause-squat.. i think you're failing to realize the absolute genius of it. :ninja: :trollface:
