OK end to the first week of this new mesocycle approach.

My mind is heavily weighed by stress at work, so things didn’t start out well – I’d try to clear my head, but stuff would just creep back in. I did not want to finish the hex-bar deadlifts because of it, but all the more reason to just press through.

Good mornings may be something I need to keep doing forever, to keep working on technique. You’d think it would be easy, but it’s not. Very easy to turn into a low-back exercise instead of a hamstring exercise. Even if the templates say for me to go up in weight, I may stay here because better technique will take me further on these than more weight will.

Leg press – foot positioning is “medium”. That is, not high, not lot, not narrow, not wide. Just a reasonable mid-way-to-everything foot placement on the plate.

Overestimated the weight on the curls. I’ll adjust.

Otherwise, an alright way to end the first week. Again, I know this meso is going to be grueling, but I expect good results as a consequence. 🙂

3/fail, 2-3 minutes rest (tho 1:30 for calves)
