Another workout day but woke up really tired. Wife tried to convince me to stay at home and just rest (didn’t have enough sleep the past couple days) but I told her its lifting day and I got a commitment to do it 😀

Workout Notes:

Squats:

Decided to drop the pins 1 notch and I think it was a good move.
Bar height at start is just below my nipple and makes reracking it better now.
Also decided to tighten my weight belt 1 notch and seems to be a better fit!
I am losing belly fat more than I thought!
had some lower back roundness at some reps probably due to my fatigue.
Note: My regular camera phone that I use to vid myself died before I started my 1st set.
Good thing I had my new phone with me that I sue for music and was able to vid my sets 2-5!

Overhead Press:

Think this is the hardest lift for me to fix.
Mostly my problem is the wrist position and think I maybe messing it up still.
On a good note.
With a tighter belt it felt easier to lift teh weight overhead!

Deadlift:

Taking cues from the critic I got from the last session.
Also rewatched my SS Video on DL to help me out.
Tried my best to keep my chest up and hips back.
Still have an issue of bringing my hips up before everything else.
Also had some lower back rounding.
Must fix this next session.

Chin-ups:
upped the weight by +10 lbs because last session felt too light.
feels just about right now and did them nice.

Prone Bridge:
Think fatigue started kicking in even more here.
Struggling by the 2nd set and only watching someone do body squats in front of me motivated me to keep going.
