I think the depth on the last set was still alright I think, the tshirt makes it look like I'm not even reaching parallel but I'm pretty sure I am. Back was sore from sitting so much because of school etc so I think that may have had some impact. Getting much stronger though.

BRB haven't PB'd since june 2014 (5 months off bench between then and now helps that :) )
On the 5th rep I got to the middle and stopped, spotter was going to help and I just started yelling + pushed as hard as I could.. Cramped my hamstring then it turned into a scream and I closed my eyes. I will never know whether I truly did get all of that rep, but the spotter said he just put his fingers on the bar and he didn't lift it. I'll take it.
Hardest rep of my life
Then i did the rest of my workout which was burnout Biceps + triceps then obliques. Nothing to write home about.

This workout was very hard lmao, since the form adjustment + going beltless, I've never done anything over 110 KG for more than 3 reps on squat

Reallllly wasn't feeling 8x4 today so I just improvised. Pretty happy with the triple at 130, probably could've got 4 but no point pushing myself to failure on squats really.

Third rep of 130 was a little backy for my liking, but still acceptable  no back pain at all. Can't get every rep right. Think I sat back too much instead of sitting down whilst sitting back on the last rep of 120 + 130, but I fixed it for 135.
Still a PB is a PB

Previous best from ~ June 2014 was 60 x 4, just before I got my old bench pb of 107.5 x 4. Destroyed it today and still standing so I'm happy.
Bro workout  Bis, tris, Lateral + anterior delts
The pump is real

So today happened...
Not even meant to workout today but I was bored + wanted to test out my injury (was planning to do bodyweight legs and some lower back)
1 leg squats are a biggg no go, wide back squats are a no go + normal back squats now hurt my back as I can't do the proper tech due to the injury + im really weak on them
Front squats are a little painful on the beginning of the eccentric portion of the lift but fine after that.. For some reason unbeknownst to me now, I decided to go heavy today lmao

I'm guessing you want to get into olympic lifting mate? Keep it going. :)

Does any sort of posterior work hurt or just squats?
Are deadlift variations off the table?

Thanks man! Just getting into cleans + starting down the snatch route for power and general athleticism.

I can do RDL's fine, regular deads aren't in my programme and other posterior work I do would be isometric so I'd imagine they'd be fine. Think squats are a problem because I strained my hip flexor + can't stretch them so I can't do normal tech without more lumbar flexion or going into APT :(
Going to see physio sometime and will probably take a week or 2 off back squats
