Tuesday
As per if I train double hard on legs the day before then it's that little bit harder to kick ass. And my first 4 plate a side squat in a long time made it hard. Upped a half kilo and got it done anyway.

Tuesday
My usual 'oh my god I could stay in bed all day' Monday night / Tuesday morning. Snack at 3am followed by a late for me breakfast (did 30 mins paint undercoating of the bathroom walls beforehand) turned into a GOOD pinch session.
Two Hand Pinch
Same set/rep set up as before (around 80-seconds total). Equ (27.7kg) x 20 reps, 57.7-kilos x 20 reps, 90.2kg-kilos x 20 (3 cluster sets of 7, 7 and 6) reps - usual short rest between.

Now I'll work on the time. I'll have this record in the next 2-3 weeks max.
