speed squats and speed deads went pretty well today. I have been staying out late do to festivals in the area and was not expecting to feel as good as I did during this training session. 90% of my speed squats were to depth and it was with the highest percent in the wave so that was good. I am still beltless and not hurting very much in the lumbar region of my spine which is a good sign. Speed deads went better than expected as well, I am getting my positioning down for taking slack out of the bar with my legs and shoulders that has been an issue the past several months.
