2014-10-23 training log

Pretty evident I was distracted today. I’m pressing and it felt really light, really good… then I realized I had been only doing 5 reps instead of 8. sigh So I just cranked out a few more sets of 8. groan

Just got a lot on my mind from work and life and whatever. So today was just in there, do the work, and go. But I am liking getting back to some direct shoulder work, and it does feel good to press again. I keep wondering if I should go back to 5/3/1, but I honestly think I get about the same results from Base Building and Strong-15, but I don’t feel as beat-up. So same results and less downside? Yeah, I’m just going to keep on with Paul’s programming until I truly see reason to stop.

In other news, my fat loss seems to have stagnated, so after 20 lbs and 3 months I’m guessing Nick’s going to want to put me on maintenance for a month. We’ll see how that phase goes because diet will still be programmed; I’m curious to see how it will be.

Based upon Paul Carter’s Basebuilding
