  • Foam Rolling
  • Man, that was tough.

    First, the work set was really hard and I pushed like a mutha to get those 5 reps @ 260. But I was NOT going to let the weight crush me.

    I did call an audible and instead of going down the ladder with the assistance squatting I just did straight sets at 50%. That was I think a better thing because I got more reps and it pushed me much further. My lower back was dying by the end of each set, wicked pump in my quads. So hey… I hope it was good.

    Then on the ab work… never have I had such pain in my abs afterwards. It was really pushing things.

    So I opted to not do pullthroughs given how pooped everything was, and I could only muster 6 runs with the sled… glutes and hams were dying.

    Thing is… is this how it is? Or am I starting to feel some loss because of my tinkering with Carb Back-Loading, and I’m getting depleted here in my initial setup? Hard to say at this point.
