All in all, a good “80%” session. Walking lunges are evil things. 🙂

Squats went well. I worked up to my EDM because I was feeling good. The 5×5 work sets continue to just slam along. So at this point, I think I need to change up. But… what? More weight? Different model? I’m going to go with different model and bump up to model 2. Main reason is the primary goal is Defattening Project, and model 2 will give me “more work” while also upping the intensity a bit. Plus if you look at model 3, that’s a LOT of work/volume, and if I want to go model 3 I better do model 2 first to work up to it. Not saying I will go model 3, but again given my goal and the path I ought to take to get there, it’s somewhat about more work not necessarily more weight (on the bar). So, I’ll start model 2 next week.

The other reason is the 60% doesn’t feel like it’s translating over. When I did the 285 I had a little stick about 2/3 of the way up, which is the transition point. I would like a little more weight on the bar to see if I can get some work to carry over into helping at that point. We’ll see if model 2 will do that.

I also realized I’ve been calculating my numbers wrong. Model 1 is supposed to work up to 75%, but I’ve been working up to 85%. Oh well. It’s been working fine for me, so I’m not going to sweat it.

Anyways, model 2, next week.

Oh, and on the Defattening. FINALLY — 215 yesterday, and 214 today. Carbs have been reduced, and I’m just constantly hungry, even after I finish eating. Ah well… the journey to 200.
