That went quite well; better than expected.

I’ve been having my doubts if I should have gone 5’s PRO or not. I’m not sure tho if it’s a problem there, or elsewhere. I’ve had horrible sleep lately — that scorpion bout the other night didn’t help. But I got a solid 8 hours last night and feel pretty good this morning. That’s one key thing about 5/3/1 success: recovery matters greatly. It’s something you have to emphasize. It’s not like I’m trying to get less sleep, just shit happens. It’s one reason I’m taking this coming weekend off: I am worn out and need some naps.

Anyways, deadlifting went well. I do think I’m adjusting to the workload because the upright rows didn’t kill me this time. It’s still tougher because of the superset with the deadlifts (out of wind, torso already tired and now must continue to stabilize), but it didn’t feel as death as last week.

All in all, pretty good. Happy with today.
