Back from Maui and back to my home gym.

It’s a deload week. Starting a day late because of flying back home, and I’ll hit today and tomorrow. But the rest of the week I’m going to take off and focus on sleep and rest. My lower back is feeling much better due to the time off, but my left knee is acting up a bit. Might have been due to the hack squats, as that’s seemed to put a lot of sheer force on my knees. I’ll keep up with some Advil at night to help it out. But yeah, I really could use the rest.

I mean, today is deload, but everything still felt heavy. It’s just because I wasn’t into it because I’m worn out from the trip. All the travel, the lack of sleep, jet lag, etc.. I need rest.

That all said, I should be set up for my next mesocycle. What’s crazy tho? I’m thinking about another diet cut while I do it. I put on about 4-5 pounds in Maui. Ugh. I mean, I’m ok with it because I enjoyed myself and that’s important and worth doing. But I’m not really happy and this could be a good time to say focus this meso and the next (the metabolite meso) for the next 10-ish weeks on a cut. If I could drop say 15 pounds in 10 weeks, that’d put me in an even better place than the cut I recently finished. AND then I think that would put me in a really good spot to get back to powerlifting. I’ll think about it over the next few days — right now my brain is cheese. 🙂
