The new routine has been going very well. Today, although sick with a bad cold, I had a great workout. On squats, I guess so that I didn't exhaust myself(?), I came out of the bottom position just as slowly as I went into it. It was almost as if I was lifting nothing; like all I had to do was engage on the transition and then let my CNS do the rest of the work. It was the smoothest lift ever - no grunting or any signs of struggle, which couldn't be said about last week's session when I was lifting the same weight.

EDIT: My friend (powerlifter) thinks that the weight was too heavy for me if I was coming out of the bottom slowly...is that correct?
