Never have held this in my hands and benched it under 150 pound body weight! So pumped. 175 @ 135. The next 4 weeks will get interesting!

I generally suck at overhead squats. Two surgeries to my left arm/shoulder had me do what I could, which was front and back squat.
But each day, I'll get a little better.
1RM Zercher squat to a high box - 100.5kg 🙌🏼 First time doing Zerchers, so you best believe I was up at 8am this bank holiday reading up on the technical requirements of the lift 😂🤓 First attempt at this I failed as the bar managed to catch and rest on the safeties which completely threw me and I couldn't budge it, but I wanted to get this BAD so attempted it again, same happened but I was prepared for it this time - even more of a dead stop than with the box alone but that can only be a benefit surely!! Wasnt sure what to expect from these, other than sore forearms (which I can confirm I have) but hitting a weight bigger than my back squat PB made for a pretty sick session 💪🏼 ➡️ 60kg triple just after the max attempt ❤
The number one path towards injury is repetitive stress. The conjugate system mitigates that by constantly changing the angles at which the joints are stressed. You should not feel constantly beat up. If you are, evaluate your training and what might be causing it. Are you only squatting with a straight bar? Are you only benching full range? Changing one small thing can make a world of difference in your pain levels AND your strength gains/training. Do not be a blind robot. Question your training and tweak it towards what will help YOU get better with less injury.
Well sometimes everything just goes right.....big 10kg pb on my squat variation today....this variation is hard out the hole for me having sat back to lose a bit of tension....bands were slack at the bottom due to new hooks in the floor we are getting used to......but all good with bare knees 200kgs on this variation.......then deadlifts for 5s deficit , they drain your soul.....equalled my pb last time then added another 5kgs so 2 good set increases.....watching the video i had a smidge more as well......training going well.... #conjugate#nattygains#nattylifter#aroo
