I haven't posted any training updates for a week because they were literally all shit. I mean 3, -10% sessions in a row. IN A ROW. And I don't mean just kinda -10%.......I mean dick knocked in the dirt -10%.
I went in to do my back work on Saturday.
I generally have been doing 405x5, and trying to get more strict. After that, I will do 3-4 sets of 8 with 365.
I barely managed a single with 365 on barbell rows last Saturday.
Tuesday I went in to bench. I had planned on doing 2 sets of 3 with 405 paused. 405 for a single was brutal.
Tonight I was set to squat and pull. I rested an extra day to get shit straight. I had planned on a set of 5 with 550. I did a double. It was hard. Not super hard, but harder than I expected.
I know I haven't gotten "weaker". Last week I did 2 sets of 5 with 500 on squats that was so easy I was disappointed I didn't either do more sets or didn't do sets of 10.
I'm going to see how I feel over the next few sessions, but right now holding on to confidence is starting to be tough. I write about these things A LOT, so here it is right in front of you. 405 on bench is generally a smoke show, 550 on squats is generally an over warm up, and barbell rows with 365 IS a warm up, or back off weight for working sets.
I did kind of feel a bit under the weather for the whole week, and I'm sure this added stress from the shutdown isn't helping. However I take this shit personally, and have Worlds in three weeks. Depending on how this next week goes, I will decide on whether I'm going. Because I don't want to foot the money it will take to go compete if I'm not working again, AND training is in the shitter.
