notes - To say I felt like shit tonight would be like calling the Grand Canyon a ditch or say that Yoda had a hint of green to him.  Pretty much a -10% session.  Just have not felt great the last few days.  Sleep has been horrendous for 2 weeks now, so I'm chalking it up to that.

Still, even with all of that I did grab some vid tonight to show just how light I'm going.  I've still got 5 weeks to go so there's no need to worry......yet.

No seriously, this is one of the great things about programming low.  If you have a bad week early, it's not a big deal.  You can still move weights with velocity and speed.  The 515 deficit pull felt awful.  Again, I can't emphasize what an understatement that is.

  1. You can't tell by watching the video that you felt like crap, but I've found you have to be useless before other people can see it.

    In the interest of learning, when should you worry about it and what do you do then?

  2. I have not tried deficit deads before, but is your stance narrower than usual because of the plate you're standing on?

    Hope you're enjoying Easter, it's a four day Easter weekend here in the UK!
