I knew as soon as I had finished squatting to a million pounds that I needed to be careful. I've talked about the Japanese proverb "In victory, tighten your helmet." before - how we tend to be caught by disaster when we've let down our guard after a successful battle. It certainly applies now. On Tuesday night, I was more worried about throwing out my back - I managed to avoid that, but ended up waking up with a head cold the next morning.
Tonight, it's back to training. I'll be staying away from the squat racks a while longer, but Bulgarian split squats, barbell presses, and kettlebell work will be back in the menu for the first time in a couple of months.
