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. 🙂

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.
