I really miss going for rep PRs.

You just get going, get into a good groove, and then you have to stop because the program is only about prescribed reps. Sigh. Life’s tough. 🙂

Actually I think next cycle will get better because I’m going to change and add in some of the Beyond 5/3/1 pyramiding, so that should help.

But apart from that, good day.

Deadlifts went well. I notice I’m sticking with double-overhand (no hook) as much as possible. Actually the lack of rep PR’ing helps here because I know I’m not out to exhaust myself so I can just double-overhand it. Grip certainly is improving, by how well I can work a Captain’s of Crush gripper.

RDL’s are doing better. Working to start with a slight bend in the knee and MAINTAIN that level of bend — no adjusting it while I move since that really takes away from the movement.

Added ab work back in, now that things are feeling better. I do think the strain is fully healed up, so I just did some light crunches so I got some work in, but not rushing back into things. Just to test the waters out and ease back into things.
