-7 kg over the last time I did these five weeks ago! I wasn't able to use the power rack to set these up tonight, it was busy, so I got someone to hand me the weight from the floor. The setup on the first rep was a bit awkward as we both figured out what we were doing. Got some good work in so I'm not overly worried about the weight drop.

I've had ridiculous DOMS for the last two days since my last deadlift/squat training session. Hamstrings, lower back, mid back, traps. Stiff everywhere! I made a lot of old man noises over the last couple of days
