2012-09-13 workout – Wendler 5/3/1 program, cycle 13, press 3
PR’s are always good, but diet is impacting me.
- 5/3/1 – Press (working max: 160#)
- 2x5x45 (warmup)
- 1x5x120 (work)
- 1x3x155 (PR)
- Asst. #1 – Press
- 5 x 10 x 80
- Asst. #1 – Wide, pronated grip lat pulldowns
- 5 x 10 x 130
It’s nice to set a PR… tho only 3. In theory I should have been able to do more, but I fear my fat loss efforts are getting in the way. But that’s to be expected. Given how things have been, I’m rethinking that next cycle will keep the same weights across the board (well, not for bench press because I want to see if I can hit 225) but go for rep PR’s. If I can hit 155 for 4 at the end of the next cycle I’ll be quite happy with that.
Speaking of diet, I am seeing success. It’s simple. a 40/40/20 macro split, 5 meals a day. Calorie restricted… aiming for 45-50g of protein and carbs (each) per meal. And that seems to be working so far…. tho I’m trying to aim towards 45 when I can be precise and allow a little slop up to 50 when I have to (e.g. something a little more difficult to measure out). But I have to say… this sucks and I hate it. The progress is good, but it’s wearing on me.
