Good solid day.

While I’m only supposed to do prescribed reps and no rep PRs (on the main work), another reason I like going for 2 on the 1+ week is because it gives me assurance that I am still progressing and not regressing. If 1 rep is a struggle, it’s time to reset — but was it really 1 struggling rep? Or did I just have an off-day? 1 isn’t always enough data. Still, I want to go for more, I want to hit rep PRs, but that’s not for now.

That said, today went overall well and I am enjoying the rest-pause drop set at the end as that does give me something more.

Next week will be a deload, and the week after I’ll adjust the cycle a little more. Still keeping the basic template, but the drop set changes to a pyramid AMRAP. I’ll also add some intensity techniques like after the last set of raises and curls, some burns.

Anyways, good day.
