It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to the gym on a Sunday. I must say it was pretty nice, I managed to get some solid work in and felt pretty damn good after. Starting prep for Nationals this week and I’m excited to dabble into the heavier weights.

Monday’s back squats were pretty tough, the firsts 3 sets felt pretty smooth and then my last 2 were very rough. I had a hard time focusing today and as I went on it seemed to get worse. I’m hoping to regain some focus soon and be able to train more efficiently. Stupid stress.

Tuesday’s bench went fantastic. I don’t think I’ve ever moved 205 so fast and confidently, it felt awesome. This was a huge volume PR for me WOOT!

Wednesday’s deadlifts were rough. I really didn’t expect them to feel that heavy, but I did squat heavyish for the first time in a while so that makes sense. It was the first time I’ve deadlifted off a deficit in 2 months and the warm-ups felt promising but when I got to the working weight, it just felt off. I need to find my groove again, looking forward to getting back at it! I need to shake this mid back pull, it’s been bothering me for almost a month, I may need to get it checked out if it doesn’t start feeling better soon! Only 8 weeks until I step back on the platform, I need to stay unbroken!

Thursday’s bench was rough, I was going for 3-5 sets of 3 @ 225 but fell short and did 2 and took the weight down slightly. I’m still floored since I’ve never hit this weight for a triple, I’m managing to make progress slowly but surely.

Friday’s accessories were easy, I was in and out within 45 minutes. I’m looking forward to getting some good stretching in, I know I really need it.

Saturday was a much needed pump session. I was feeling pretty awesome afterwards and I’m looking forward to taking tomorrow off and doing some much needed foam rolling, stretching and physio.
