Missed recording two deloads. Nothing eventful.
Swiss bar press:
125 x 5
145 x 5
165 x 10
> Felt weak and shaky. I was going for 11 but last rep was hard.
Swiss bar press with Fat Gripz:
130 x 5 x 10
> Phew, also hard. Had to rest pause a little, but I don't care.
5 x 10
> Finally hit my rep goal.
External dumbbell rotations:
5 lbs x 20, 20
Need to eat when I wake up and not wait an hour and a half before breakfast. All this reading about carb backloading and intermittent fasting is making me feel more comfortable about going hungry. It would seem that a picture-perfect breakfast (steak, two slices wheat toast, milk, broccoli) isn't quite enough to completely negate glyco depletion pre-meal, at least in the immediate aftermath with a training session. I'm also off creatine.
Still, this is progress compared to the first week of last cycle. It's important to not expect too much too frequently.
