Today was OK. Not awesome, not crappy, just OK. I have pressed 165×1 before, so I told myself you’re doing 160 for 2 today. No sweat. 3 didn’t quite happen, but I know I wasn’t fully committed to the lift. Like I said, today was OK.

I hoofed it on assistance work. 1 minute of rest between sets, supersetting everything. I think between that and eating like it’s going out of style, it’s building some muscle. My challenge will be to keep it when I change my diet up.

Not much else to say.

Start part 2 of the “6 week cycle” on Monday. Same basic structure. I don’t know what numbers will be, but as long as at the end I creep closer to that 1000# total, I’m happy.
