Entry 780

Took a week off from lifting. It wasn't intentional at first, but eventually I just decided to go with it and take advantage of skipped workouts. I came back stronger than ever today, which was miraculous. I didn't eat enough carbs in the meal before my workout. Blood glucose levels felt low and hands were shaky. Luckily, I had a bottle of BCAAs in my bag, which help prevent catabolism. The first few sets felt weak, but I become stronger as time passed.


Pin press:
135 x 3
185 x 3
225 x 3
275 x 3
315 x 3
340 x 3
365 x 3
> Very strange exercise. It starts getting strenuous at 315 and then everything past that feels the same. Probably just a matter of getting used to it. I didn't warm-up too extensively.
