Squats went much better this week. I attribute that to not having pre-fatigued my legs as happened last time. That and better recovery overall this week. My hams were pretty tired after the workset so I only did two on the drop.

Bench went well. Threw on the slingshot afterward to get some more work in. Last time I tried to use this it was a disaster. I had never used it before so I wasn’t 100% sure how to use it. I put it too far up my arms, didn’t use wrist wraps and went too heavy. Coupled with some slow spotting the bar ended up on my throat. This time I was more confident since the safety bars would catch anything that came towards my face. This thing is fun. Hit at a touch-n-go triple at my 1RM and hit a touch-n-go single at +10lbs my 1RM.
