Wrist still hurts. I'm starting to wonder if it's something worse than being sprained. Also, despite clear instructions, my spotter touched the bar on my last heavy bench rep. Ugh. It's a weight I know I can handle 2-3 times, though, so I'm not too concerned. But still; listen to directions, people!

Today was supposed to be 5s week squats. Trying to recover from a possible torn back muscle so I didn't do heavy weights, instead:
Squats: 45lb x 25/25/25 65 x 10 This felt like a cardio workout haha, but my back felt completely fine.
Leg Press Machine: 210 x 10/10/10
Came home and did some yoga.
My back feels a little tight now, but during the workout it didn't hurt at all. Tomorrow is 5s week bench, after my heavy bench I'll do the 3 x 25 on squats again before my dumbbell bench and rows.
Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 6, week 2 (3/3/3), Workout A (Squat/Bench)
I had to swallow my pride and drop down 20 pounds on the squat, but completed sets in good form -- going low, knees out, pulling with hams, abductors and gluts. The rest of the stuff was good. Bench felt really good.
Today was suppose to be squat day, but I hurt myself on the treadmill yesterday (don't ask) so my trainer decided to do accessory work on machines to make sure that I didn't hurt my knee. He stated that it might take a couple of days for the injury to present itself. The only noticeable thing is it looks like I have road rash on my knee and my ankle is sore.
