2017-01-30 training log

I’ll chalk it up as a good day.

I still have a hard time NOT pushing myself on the last set, going for a rep PR, but it’s how it goes. I get into the groove and want to keep going, but nope. But adding in the drop-set, now with rest-pause, gives me something extra to push, so I dig that.

The RP does take more out of me, so the other shoulder work lost a little bit, but I think it also was a net-gain. For example, I found myself on the raises really trying to isolate and lift just by contracting the relevant muscles. Of course, that’s what I’m continually working on, but today it felt like I made a little better progress on that, especially with the rear raises.

All in all tho, things feel good.

What doesn’t feel good is my weight. I feel better, I don’t LOOK quite as bad in the mirror. But on the scale there’s little change. It’s a bit frustrating to have a negative calorie balance and thus I should be dropping, yet I’m not. Who knows. It may be a slower drop. I also didn’t do as much cardio last week due to life issues, so maybe that was it. I’m just going to stick with it. All I can do.
