Another day, another session! Squats and strict Overhead Press.

I'm in the last two weeks of this cycle. So the reps have gone down and the intensity up.

And now to get my stiff-ass body under the bar.

... aaaand pulled something in my right hip/lower back. Literally hasn't happened to me in years now. Fuck me!

Gonna try and work through it. See how this goes.

Welp, worked through it and actually felt good. Actually hurts more now sitting around than working.

I've also believe I've got the problem pretty clearly identified. I've been modifying my form ever so slightly to try and correct my anterior pelvic tilt. This was a bit too much of extra work on my back for my normal numbers, and caused the pull. After stopping trying to correct it everything felt much better.

@everlifting nah pretty much completely gone now. Can't hit the gym for a bit for other reasons unfortunately, but the pull is pretty much cleared up now. Thanks for checking!
