01/12/10

Rest. Been feeling like a train wreck since yesterday. Really tired, yet having trouble sleeping more than half an hour to an hour at a time. Elevated resting heart rate and I've been extremely irritable. I'm hoping this is the reason I failed all those squats and not vice versa.

3 x 3 x 55kg

B. Chin-ups
5 x 25kg (5RM PR)

C. Fat Gripz Deadlift
8 x 60kg
5 x 60kg
5 x 60kg
5 x 60kg
6 x 60kg

D. GHD Back Extension
3 x 10

02/12/10

Rest. ~40 minute walk.

Feeling better after the walk and tons of stretching/foam-rolling/pain-balling.




03/12/10

Bodyweight
70.8kg

A. Deadlift
8 x 150kg

Fourth rep felt way too easy and since it's my last workout for a while, I went balls to the wall instead of doing just 5 reps.

B1. Glute-ham Raise
3 x 5 x 5kg (plate held at chest)

B2. GHD Russian Twist
3 x 10 x 20kg

C1. Forward Neck Bridge Rolls
2 x 10

C2. Backward Neck Bridge Rolls
2 x 10

Still feeling overtrained. My heart rate seemed to go through the roof as soon as I started doing something and I really had to force myself to finish my PWO mobility stuff.

12/12/10 - 15/12/10

Rest. Just some mobility stuff.




16/12/10

A. Deadlift
1 x 160kg
0 x 175kg
0 x 175kg
0 x 175kg

8 x 150kg felt good about two weeks ago. 1 x 160kg felt so light I almost went straight for 185kg. Decided to go to 175kg first and it wouldn't even budge. There could just as well have been 500kg on that bar.

Fuck.
