Week 2 comes to a close.

I’m still mixed on this approach, but I’ll keep going to the end because I know I know almost nothing at this point.

I am looking forward to next week, going 2/fail.

But one thing I do know? Hex/Trap-bar deadlifts are likely to see more rotation in the future. I hate them! As each set wore on I did not want to continue, but that was because they were killing me — they are tough! But I have not felt my quads work like that from anything: back squats, front squats, leg press, leg extensions, whatever! You name it, and I’ve never felt the quad work like I’m getting from the hex-bar deadlifts. It’s pretty awesome and probably just what I need as assistance work to bring up my squat.

Also, the superset of bar curls with db curls? Just slays my biceps. You can see the reps drop off quickly. ๐Ÿ™‚

Woke up at 243 lb. I suspect I’m in a bit of a weight flux right now because I’ve been fighting something — no major sickness, just stuffy/runny nose. My body wants to eat more to help manage it, and I’m giving it a little (e.g. had a nice large roast beef sandwich from Thundercloud Subs last night — not quite to macros, but meh). Better to get over this, and if it needs a couple days of food-relaxation, so be it.
