Jack shit, and not even a good one at that.

Felt crappy this morning. My sleep hasn’t been great, work has been a massive source of stress, so I was drag-ass out of bed. Thought about skipping the gym entirely, but no… gotta go through. But I did decide to do a “Jack-Shit” approach (and then reduce my carb intake today) so I don’t dig a deeper hole to recover out of. Just do the squat work, 30 minutes on the elliptical, and call it.

As I started squatting, I felt a little better and thought about working up to my EDM because sometimes you should do that. I really don’t know why I did — I shouldn’t have. I felt bad, poor day, not recovering well, why would I think this was a good idea? Still, I did. And I failed. I put 305 on the bar, hit the hole, not sure I hit depth because I could tell it wasn’t going to happen… started to come out of the hole, got a few inches and just stuck… stuck… stuck… couldn’t make it move… so I dumped the bar. Not happy, but not too upset because I’m not surprised. I had good setup and mentality going into it, but it just wasn’t there physically. I’m not yet going to chalk it up to diet strength loss, but rather just feeling like shit, bad day, not recovering, etc..

After I dumped it I just hit the elliptical. No 5×5 work sets. My back didn’t feel too hot after the bar dump, so why risk more problems for myself

It was what it was.
