Athlete Journal, Entry 27: Supporting the Team
Nice and solid and think I would have hit a third if I hadn’t held the bar so long.
Smith Machine Shoulder Press
15min mobility work

Still sore from the toll on that injury I sustained at the beginning of February and the 826 raw squat taxed it too much last week.

700×3 sets holding for time
Hanging Reverse Squats
5 sets with and without band assistance
Lying Band Hamstring Curls

Sore throat and fatigue kicking in pretty good. And then over the weekend I flew to Las Vegas to support my team members competing in WPC Worlds. Big shout out to EPC member Shawn Doyle who not only won his class but also took home the biggest total and Best Lifter of the multi-day event, out of 750 lifters.
