Needs work.

Despite trying to underestimate the weights to use, I still was over the mark. When you have only 1 minute of rest, you really don’t recover much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Plus, I found myself at times doing more than “3/fail” because the reps felt too low otherwise (for this mesocycle). Again, a symptom of too-heavy weights. I did adjust a couple things on the fly, but I will need some more tweaking as I go into week 2.

That said, I did still feel some tightness from Monday; nothing bad, not really sore. But between that and not really having the weights dialed in PLUS knowing next week the weights should increase, I’m actually going to rate today’s work at “0” so that there’s no increase in sets. I’m a bit torn on doing that, but I can see how things will get by week 4, and I’d rather keep to starting slower/lighter and let things ramp up so that week 4 can still be meaningful. Whereas if I overdo it now, week 4 will be a disaster.
