Second week in the micro-cycle program. Increased intensity and decreased volume. Killed...
But, I still made it through most of the workout. Had one little tweak in the last set of squats that was a little too much for me at 11pm., so I cut out the last rep in hopes that the little tweak does not land me on my back for the entire week.
8 x 290, 6 x 310, 4 x 330, and 1 x 345
**Last set was supposed to be a double, but the aforementioned issue forced an early retirement.**
3 x 6
**Might be thinking, "What is wrong with this guy...", but this was extremely light to save any future back issues that may occur.**
Single Leg Extensions
3 x 20 each leg
Forearm Dumbell Curls
3 x 15
Cardio was 20 minutes tonight. Learned from last week's Squat Day debacle and didn't push up to a sprint like usual.
If not for that one fail on the last rep of the squat I felt strong enough to have made it a triple. Shoulda-coulda-woulda huh?!? Only one way to go from here. Progression is the key. I think I tell my football players the story of Milo at least twice a summer as they progress through their workouts. On a side note my forearms are coming back strong from my time off as well.
World's Strongest Scientist Tidbit of the Day:
Not really a tidbit, just bragging..I HAD TUNA MELTS AND SWEET POTATO FRIES FOR DINNER AND YOU DIDN'T!!! Or maybe you did...
That was a builder meal if I ever saw one. Thanks to my wife for such a wonderful meal.
Keep Moving Foreward,
