2016-10-10 training log

I don’t know what it is, but for some reason looking at numbers today got me a little nervous and a little excited.

No, 270 isn’t much in the greater scheme, but what it is is the road to breaking back into the 300’s. When I do my “1” week, I’ll be working with 300 for the first time in a long time. I look back when I started back on 5/3/1 back in June and this “5 week” worked up to 225, which was admittedly too light, but based upon my working max then (265) and looking at what it probably is now, progress!

Again, my current goal is by the end of 2016 to test 1RM and hope to set new all-time PR’s, which would mean squatting more than 325. According to calculations, I can do it, but calculations and reality aren’t always the same time. But point is, I’m getting near to that point, and I’m getting excited about it.

That said, I’m also… tired.

I need to get my sleep in order, but going to see Slayer this past Saturday didn’t help much for sleep. 😉 So, I pared back a little today, no deadlifts, so I don’t dig my hole any deeper. I’m going to strive to take some mid-day naps (hopefully life will cooperate).

Anyways, chugging along. Progress is slowing, but still progress. So long as I’m still meeting (or exceeding) the prescribed reps, that’s what matters.
