- 5 x 10/10/10/10/8 x 110
I didn’t deadlift this week. Since I reaggrevated my ankle chasing those coyotes then spending a LONG day at KR Training well… my ankle hates me. Even right now as I write this, my ankle is feeling some pain. *sigh* But damnit, I’m going to Press.
And press I did. It was a good workout, and I tell you… while my weight loss has slowed (but seems to be still progressing.. I’ll write more on this elsewhere), and while my strength is going down, the lighter weights I think are a blessing because I’m bringing up my form. So hey… all is good, right? I really am feeling a lot better in my form.
As for my ankle. I’m thinking a doctor visit may be in order… x-rays, and see what can be seen. Next week starts the 5/3/1 week and my heaviest days. I’m not sure if I’ll max out on squats and deadlifts. I’ve even wondered if I might need to drop off a strict Wendler program for a while and do something else. Probably keep on doing Wendler for bench press and press, but deadlift and squat might have to have something else that doesn’t stress my ankle so much so I can at least do something. Maybe just a lot of light sets, like squat at 135 for 5×10 or something. I don’t know yet…still thinking, but I need my ankle to heal.
