    Hmm, 2019 goals.

    I want 250kg on my deadlift, but that is well within reach now, so I would be happy with 275kg by the end of 2019.

    I want 200kg on my squat, but that is unlikely, so a solid 180-190kg would make me happy. Most importantly I don’t want to go backwards!

    If my shoulder holds up, I would like another 20kg minimum on my bench pushing me to 160kg.

    I need to keep increasing my calorie intake, but need to squeeze more veggies into my diet too.

    Dunno bro. I would like the motivation to lift to come back but not had it for a while now :( Maybe if I force myself to go for a few months the gains will bring back the feels.

    Yup, a touch. I'm still working on getting my mobility back and I'm very cautious of my bad knee.

    Also that angle can be difficult to judge depth. I'm only aiming for parallel (low bar squat).

    Here's the 110 from the week before. Most are parallel.

    Squat form looks pretty much same as it used to.

    Here's a video of my previous form.

    What killed the motivation for the gym, you were all in balls deep before having a kid and becoming a MAMIL

    Oh I am well up for this! I have a slightly easier entry as my home gym is still ready to go.

    Just because I can’t be on gear and because I can’t be what I want to be natty. So I’m basically training because for the enjoyment of it, which I don’t any more :(
