Just not feeling it today.

But you go anyways.

No idea what it is… just woke up, had zero desire to do anything — even go back to bed. Did not want to lift, but figured I’d feel better after I started squatting. Sure enough I did feel better, but then I wanted the bag the rest of the session. No, can’t do that.

The session itself went well. Everything does feel stronger, progressing. It’s all good. I just feel “blah” today.

On split squats, the progression there was to take a wider/longer stance, so my feet were further apart. That ups things, plus it added more to the stretch in the bottom position. That was painful. 🙂

I am thinking about next week tho and looking forward to it. The progression changes to start to prime things for the strength phase. That should be excellent. 🙂

    • Paul speaks to the lack of deadlifts in Inception (in the eBook) — it’s intentional, and I agree with his reasons given his goal and intent of the program.

      It’s also fine for me personally. Given my knee issues, deadlifting is unfortunately something I cannot do too much of — just too much culmulative abuse. I love deadlifting and hate not deadlifting, but I’m OK with it. For the purposes of the program, why I’m doing it, etc. it’s fine.

      That said, once I finish a full cycle of Inception, I’m intending to do a Strong-15 Short Cycle, which will have deadlifting.
