SLRDLs better, less falling random directions. Split squats, however, were a little more shaky than last time. Rollouts easier than I remember them; haven't done them for a few weeks.

*supposed to be 2 reps first 2 sets. Didn't read before the first set and went 5, got absent minded during the 2nd set and went 3, could only get 4 reps on the last set. I tried hard for the 5th, but it came down and I had to "crawl" out from under it. Rats! This was despite an interruption after the 4th set, and a "rest" of about a half hour. I'm old, I'm absent minded AND I'm weak. Sheesh. No hand-offs for any of it.

Gob Sq (50#), BB rollout, GHR** 5x10
*Still finding the "right" loading for now--was going to go more slowly, but they kept feeling light, so I kept raising it slightly. I'm not there yet. Should I keep going up on the weight, or start going down on the bar height? I can change in rough 1" increments.
**I think I'm still learning a few things about this. I've done them pretty perfunctorily, not really putting a lot of effort in, sort of doing a plyometric knee push up :). I'm focusing more, feeling hams more, trying to be slower and more deliberate. Still, by about the 5th reps it's pretty much free-fall down, arms pushing back up with a little boost from the hams at the end. I assume my flutes are stabilizing my hips, but I'm not really aware of them. I see the typo now, but "flutes" is funnier.

*A mix of problems kept me from lifting Thursday or Friday, work issues, illness, sleep depravation, etc., etc., I probably shouldn't have lifted today either, but I hated to miss another day.. I'm still very tired, but helped with work on a friend's house in the village for most of the day, then came home and went to the gym. The rack deads were fine, but somehow I managed to spend over 2 hours, and still was only through 2 sets of accessories. It was past 7 PM, and I just couldn't continue.
My back is OK, I think.
