Sooo...I know nearly everyone reading this will laugh and remind me just have good I have it, but lemme just say that 37 degrees plus high humidity at 4:45am is NOT a good time. Freaking freezing! Full ninja gear once again donned for the gym this morning...really this cold spell has GOT to end. I don't live 'up there' anymore, yo!
Today was week 3 of 5-3-1, so the heaviest week of the cycle before the deload and increasing the training max for the next cycle.
For sumos that worked out as follows:
5 x 210 (Pretty!)
3 x 235
1+ x 265 (Ugly!)
On my 1+ set I got 7 reps. I'm a bit disappointed, I have to say, since that's where I maxed on that months ago (first week in December) - no PR. That said, guess you can't have a PR every time ;) I just got spoiled - this program sets you UP breaking training PRs frequently. What would be interesting is comparing the two - how they looked...I'm going to go dig through and see if I can find it....
Hahah..well it looks about the same I think. Not pretty, that's for sure ;)
