REALLY wanted to go heavier on the squats but thought better of it... better to have room for comfortable progress, and better to not risk further injury. My right hip was actually feeling pretty good tonight - the pain is still there, and is still apparent when I squat, but it's not really an issue anymore, now that I've almost got my narrower squat stance sorted.

I say 'almost', because I'm having to be wary of foot placement now too... I must point them at just the right angle or I'm liable to buckle a knee. I will have to get some further advice from my coaches on this before I go much heavier.

GMs also felt strong, but I was carrying the bar very high on my back and neck in order to take stress off the shoulder as the weight went up. Again, this is getting easier and easier to deal with, but for loading above, say, 130 kilos - the high bar placement is going to become an issue. Let's hope the new shoulder is ready for a proper workout in due course...

Looking forward to a relaxing 4 day weekend, interspersed with some kind of training on saturday, and plenty of roast meat either side of it. Happy fucking easter.
