Got back inside a gym for the first time in months today, the results were... mixed.
On one hand - comfortable repped out 100kg x 4 x 5 on the bench (quite a bit stronger than I thought I would be coming back - my upper body strength tends to suffer more than lower in periods of no training...)
On the other hand - got destroyed attempting 120kg x 4 x 5 for back squats. Managed two sets of five, and a broken set of three-two with two minutes rest between. Didn't bother trying for the fourth set as I knew I didn't have it in me.
Somewhat surprised it's my upper body doing OK and my lower body doing terribly (the exact opposite of the effects of the last two lockdowns) :S
I could quite possibly hit my upper body target based off today's evidence, lower body might need to be re-evaluated (although it could just be a blip as squats are harder technically.)
On the language front, I go between: "I'm good enough to pass A2" and "what the hell was I thinking entering the exam!?!?!" on a pretty much hourly basis. Guess the moment of reckoning shall reveal the truth to me...
