Wednesday 29th December
Glad to be back in the gym, I've been stiff and sore, especially around the lower back and hips. Only exercise has been 15' yoga yesterday and a few mobility exercises to loosen my lower back. I don't react well to doing nothing...
Getting use to RPE's and fatigue stops, so a bit untidy on first attempt.
Squat (volume - should have been anyway):
Thought 115kg was conservative to shoot for considering I did 122.5x5 a month ago, but it wasn't happening. Still tired in this movement and back still feeling the deadlift last week.
Was going to stick with what I was doing previously, but 72.5x5 was not happening, so changed this to RTS intensity session on the cuff. Perhaps hasty? Done now.
Bench press (explosive):
Bit tired from the pressing.
Made my back feel a lot better for flushing some blood back through.
