Still avoiding straightly deadlift. Even though it wasn’t hurting, I want to give my lower back more time. Lower back pain is no joke.

I wanted to focus on middles and pancake today, and I have to say it really paid off! I focused on holding my pancakes since I couldn’t immediate get my chest to the floor. I later realized this was because my pancake was wider! My last set, I was able to reach out and get my chest and chin down, and when I looked at the picture, I realized I was super close to 180˚ (an app I have says I was about 165˚)! Next time I’d like point my toes forward and rotate my hips! So excited. It felt so good, too! Like scratching an itch!
