I'm being sensible with food. Yesterday I cut the carbs because I wasn't training, for example. Weighed exactly 100 kg this morning.
 
I think today is the worst day of the programme in terms of toughness. Was nervous about this session, something I've not felt for a while.
 
Week Two, Day 3/5: Squat focus ~ 80%
 
Squats with belt 
  • Warm-up: Bar x 5, 60 x 5, 5; 100 x 2; 120 x 1; 140 x 1; 160 x 1; 175 x 1
  • Working sets:  155 (80% + 2.5 kg) x 10; 150 (80%) x TEN triples with 60 second break between triples.
Yeah, that wasn't nice. I didn't warm up well enough either. The ten reps all felt different and all felt bad. Triples 1-4 didn't feel good, but 5-8 felt really good and I was pushing in the right place. 9 and 10 were very hard. 
Bearing in mind I only put 190 as my 1RM.... at 200 these go up to 162.5 for the 10 repper and 157.5 for the triples..... no. thank. you.

Paused Deads
  • Warm-Up: 60 x 5; 100 x 3
  • Working sets: 140 x 8, 8, 8
These were hard too, but easier than the other day, probably because a PT kept talking to me and I had longer breaks. I bruise my shin below my knee pretty badly from these on the pause.
 
OPTIONAL: Quad extensions
  • A weight: 12, 12, 10, 10 reps
I didn't do any stretches.... probably not wise. Next lower body day is Sunday, but I need to do a light session between now and then or I'll just stiffen up. Bench tomorrow is the same as Monday, so hoping to nail it.
 
Can't believe I haven't finished week 2 yet....

Some light cardio, just getting on a bike for a while and then stretching, should see you alright and get the blood flowing to pull out the waste products. Killer session tho, mate, multiple sets always seem to start of horrible and then you get the groove, they probably shouldn't and maybe it does suggest an inappropriate warm-up but I always find this too

It just sounds horrific.
Either the 10 repper or the triples but both?
This. Is. Sparrrrta

DV: Definitely inappropriate warm up today. It's tough not jumping on the bar when there are prawns lurking.
 
Jedi: Yep, definitely Sparta... my squats resembled these guys today:

 
Just been to an all-you-can-eat Brazilian grill. I'd like to say it was awesome, but my mouth has not been saltier since I last earned myself a free drink in a bar in Magaluf.

Was the Brazilian grill a complete let down?

Wolfysses: yeah. It was 26 quid a head!!!! (£14 in the day) and was so salty. I was first table, so I always got the first cut which was covered in salt (I hope).

  • Warm-Up: 60 x 5; 100 x 2
  • Working sets: 130 x 10, 140 x 8, 8
Military press:
  • Working sets: 60kg x 10, 65kg x 8; 70 kg x 6

All the assistance work today was a bit heavier, less sets and just easier. Not too stiff or sore yesterday...just hoping it isn't waiting for tomorrow. Walked about 8 miles today, too.

Well if you are sore you can blame the walk, TBH it will probably have helped. Still going well
