Gotta do what you can, when plans dictate.

Today’s gym session was abridged (on the fly) because I’m going deer hunting. So waking up at OMG:o’clock to still get some gym time in, and if you know about hunting you’re getting up at OMG:30 to get into the blind well before sunrise anyways. But, you do what you gotta do to keep schedule.

That said, I had to abridge things a bit because it all came down to time. My intent then in abridging was to do things that still “got a lot of work in”. So I did that AMRAP set, then followed with a 50% set. Went to the 350-method inclines. And if I had time, would have just done bodyweight dips until my arms fell off, but I ran out of time.

Normally in a case like today I would have done the Wendler “jack shit” approach, but The Defattening Project calls for as much “work” as possible so… there we go.

In other news… I’ve been sitting stagnant at my weights on bench and squat for a while. I realized that I’ve just been “moving the weight”, not exploding, no C.A.T. going on. Not sure why, but probably because the past few weeks I’ve been more focused on diet and “getting work done” than trying to progress the weights. Now that I think my body is pretty well adjusted to the depletion, I’m going to try to get back on C.A.T. because I do feel the weights are moving better, but not enough to bump the weights up — but I want to. So, going to get back on that train again.
