Regarding conditioning: my sessions has been too few and to far apart to tell. Normally it shouldn’t affect your strength gains that much. For a more detailed answer regarding the Greyskull LP see the sticky thread over at Strength Villain.

27 April
Press 62,5 kg 2*5 1*15
Deadlift 180 kg*9 – huge disappointment. I aimed for at least ten but felt tired warming up. Hopefully this is due to infrequent training over the last couple of weeks, lack of nutrition and/or too few rest days since I last DL:ed. If not and this trend continues I need to do something.

My lower back has been a bit irritated the last couple of days. It always gets like this when I'm stressed. No DL:s or squats due to this.

Stress levels are high right now. Not much sleep and long hours at work. This has affected my lower back as mentioned, and I've opted out of deadlifting for a while. I plan to make my reset even bigger and go down from 200 kg to 170 kg due to this.

Luckily I'm off to NYC for pleasure and then to Detroit for business. This means I will take two whole weeks off from training. Hopefully I'll be rested and hungry again when I'm back home in Stockholm.

Back from the trip. Still jet lagged and I felt woozy so I skipped lower body work.
