2016-03-07 training log

Opted to start with Basebuilding, because I might as well get rolling.

All in all it went about as expected. Didn’t hit 5×8, but that’s alright — so long as there’s progression over the coming weeks. It all feels like where it should be to start out.

I still remain impressed by how much side laterals, when I tilt my hands forward (like pouring out a pitcher), hits my traps.

One non-evident thing is rest periods. Given the nature of things I want more rest, but I’m going to try it across the board. So heavy sets, light sets, about 2 minutes. Strive to hit as best as possible, as heavy as possible, as many reps as appropriate. So like on the extensions, 12-20 reps, and that each set is hard within those limits. I want to see what it does for me.

Anyways, off we go.
