Sat in traffic for nearly an hour on my way to the gym. I was frustrated, because I was already on a pretty tight schedule. I’m pretty sure I didn’t have as bad a day as the guy in the accident that caused the backup, though.

SSB Low Box Squat
2×5 @ 45
225+chain x 2
245+chain x 1
265+chain x 1
275+chain x 1
This is my least favorite lift. The SSB throws me forward and really makes me use my upper back to stay tight, and I just hate doing them. I’m also not good at them. I used one set of chain, which adds about 40 pounds at the top, and nearly deloads at the bottom. I was planning to use 2 sets, but the SSB was hard enough with one. My PR on this is 300, so today I hit 315 at the top, so we’ll take it, as using accommodating resistance on these makes them suck even more than normal. Also – if you see stars at the end of a rep, it was probably a maximal effort.

Since I had limited time, just did this and got out. Sometimes that’s the way things go.
