Nice deadlift rep PR: 430×6.

Watching how things have been going, I’m getting excited at the prospect of hitting some cool 1RM’s by the end of the year. Things continue to go up and go well.

I did skip belt squats today – my knees have felt a little irritated. Just trying to keep this managed, so I figured no reason to put them under more load today; let them rest.

The reverse hyper tho continues to be cool. I’m getting a better flow of technique, plus finding a good way to do it 1-leg at a time without stability issues or the other leg getting too involved. And when I do it right, oh man — my butt and lower back — it’s really killer! It doesn’t feel like it when you’re doing the work, but afterwards, it’s rather worked. It’s pretty cool. I also am wondering if soon I may be able to attempt 2 legs! It used to be with the 1-leg that I could even feel that twinge of pain, but I’m not feeling it. I’m not going to rush it, but I’m getting excited at the prospect.

Anyways, good day.

Thinking about next cycle starting next week. I’m going to basically keep things as they are, tho work/volume will decrease slightly: instead of 5 suppplemental, going to 4 sets..
