Cycle 1: Week 2 - Lower Body - Deadlift Day
My calories have been too low for the past week, not on purpose though...The most I've eaten in the past 4 or 5 days is probably 2500 cals, while the lowest day was probably around 2100...just too much work and too much stress lately. I've probably just dropped a bunch of water weight, I definitely feel thinner. I'm going to have a bit of a "refeed" day tomorrow on bench day to make sure my weekly calories arent dipping too low.
Base Load = 470 (90% of 1RM)
Percentage of Base Load 90%
375 x 3
405 x 3
425 x 8
It's funny how on the DL I can feel so crappy one week, then so good the next. 365 felt like 450 last week, but 375 felt like I was doing speed work today. I really focused on getting my ass lower on my setup, and I think that helped. Very happy with 425 for 8, Im pretty sure thats a PR for that many reps.
B- Good Mornings
(sets x reps x weight)
5 x 12 x 185 (got 15 reps on the last set)
The last set felt really really good, I probably could have squeezed out a few more.
12 minutes of intervals on the bike.
