15 meters @ 230 kgs - just to blast me a little more while I waited for my ride

Baby steps turned into a pretty decent jump in squatting weight tonight. I was hoping for 1 PR but instead got 3, and my legs... my legs are destroyed. I mean they ache to their bones. My knees feel like they're made of egg shell and stuck together with craft glue.

The good mornings were feeling pretty heavy at 110, so I capped the weight and focussed on depth, as I felt like I was losing some connection with my hamstrings. Either that or they're getting used to the punishment...

I was lucky enough to be able to refuel on cold cuts, cheese singles and fruit before training, and the fuel did me good. Recent schedule changes have made it possible to do eat prior to training and still arrive at an earlier time, and so have the spotting and form advice from the team.

More mexichicken and rocky road ice cream for dinner last night... I'm wondering if this week I actually maintain weight, and if this will be the payoff for (hopefully) a strength increase across the board?

At this point, I need more strength more than I need less fat. It may boil down calorie fine tuning - which I hate and have never really done with any discipline or purpose. Till now perhaps.
