Jesus, I think I have actual PTSD. I did 4 reps of 215 lbs on a box squat (lol), which is the heaviest I've been since I blew my leg and back out. Cut out short and sat down and realized my legs were shaking, not from exertion but from adrenaline. I called it there and moved on.
Damn. I dunno how to get over that. That last injury was traumatic enough and came out of nowhere that everytime I do squats now I'm expecting to feel a tendon snap and leave me crumpled up on the floor under the bar.

Front carrier? Why can't I just clip her onto my dip belt like any other weight?

What do you do when you fail a lift?
Hit a PR yesterday on bench, 190 3x5, unfortunately I was doing 5x5 Couldn't quite make the last rep of set 4 and had someone help get the bar off of me. Question is, what do I do next time: same weight/sets, drop a little weight and build back up, drop some more weight and do 4x10 for volume, switch to yoga? In the past when I've felt I wasn't lifting well at a given weight I'd do the volume thing for a few weeks, then return to 5s and work my way back up, but figured I'd ask people for advice this time

I got the safety squat bar! My extremely early review is that it rules but I need to get used to it. The difference in load distribution means that I think it's going to leave my lower back alone, which is what I'd heard, and that rules but it means my legs are doing a lot more of the work and they are very not used to being called out. I think I'll keep it light and more frequent and we'll see how it goes but right now 10/10, would buy again.
