Sometimes you just have to take what you’re given.

I have no gas in the tank. Lack of food, and lack of sleep. I think it’s the lack of sleep that really got me. That concert this past Friday? Getting to bed at 2 AM (WAY WAY WAY past my bedtime) and all that’s cascaded since then… I had a mid-day doze, then crashed hard and early on the couch last night, woke up hard from my alarm this morning. Yeah, my body needs to recoup. Once I hit the squats AMRAP and couldn’t crank, I knew that was it. I changed up, did get some work in, but didn’t push it hard like I normally do. Normally these leg days are very hard and leave me quite drained — I don’t need to do that right now, if I’m this far in the hole already.

So, the day what it was. Got some work in, and hopefully didn’t dig the hole too much deeper.

One cool thing was going back to leg presses from high-bar squats. I did it for two reasons: 1. just to drop the work down, 2. I was curious if my knee would still complain. I just did a very easy work-up on the presses, and my knee was happy. That was cool.

I suspect I will keep my squat work-up the same but drop the AMRAP weights down maybe 10%. I need to focus on “getting lots of work/volume” so… Everything else will probably be adjusted accordingly as well.
