A little good, a little less good.

The 280 felt heavy. Not sure why, but my guess is less than optimal recovery. I’ve been struggling with this for a couple months now, because my workload is just too high. No time off, 7 days/week, crappy sleep. It all adds up. And this past week hasn’t been the greatest for whatever reason. I’m working on it.

So I think that’s why. I mean, 280 should be cake for me. But it felt heavy. I felt like if I was going for a rep PR and not just holding to prescribed reps, I’m sure I’d have gotten 6 but 7 I wasn’t sure about. Not good. But it’s enough to keep going.

That said tho, the 20-rep squats….. ooof.

I recall I was trying to find the right weight to use, and figured that 60% of my working max would be good. It has been light but working, but today? Yeah, now it’s starting to kick my ass. 😉 That was a tough one, but really good. It feels good to just keep pressing through even though your body is screaming for you to stop. But it did take a bunch out of my lower back and glutes, so the hypers sucked. 🙂

All in all, a good day. I’ll put it in the 80% column. I just need more sleep.
