I didn't do very well this time. As you know, I planned to do three sets at 270 pounds, based on my 295 pound one rep max, this is entirely do-able. My body's strong enough for it, my fitness and conditioning have prepared me for this. But, hitting the gym with less than five hours sleep a night can put a damper on well-laid plans.
Here's how it all went down:
Monday September 25, 2017
I went into it tired, barely completing 6 reps at 135 pounds. I did 270 pounds because I knew I could do them even though I wasn't particularly enthusiastic about it. I knew I wasn't up to doing two more sets at that weight so I reduced the weights to 245 pounds then down to 225 pounds.
So, what's the plan for tomorrow? I'll do 250x5x3 after getting what I hope to be a good night's sleep.
I'll keep you posted.
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
