Went on a fasted walk, planned for a lazy rest of the day, then decided it'd be good to do my first two training sessions as soon as possible after time off.

Mat pulls (6)
495 x 10
So far my idea to reset back a week after a bad session is working. Leg drive was good and the movement pattern felt well-oiled. Used an Emevas-style rest pause to get the 10th rep, which I think is exactly what I need to train my weakness of back fatigue and my 1RM being disproportionate to my rep ability. For the first time ever I'm experiencing the feel of gutting out a slow rep. Increased my weight belt by a size. I either gained weight or I trained fuller than normal, not sure.

SSB squats
340 x 5, 5, 4
No real reason I didn't do 3x5, just that 3 sets was more than before and I felt like leaving room to go up next time.

Neck crunches

Gliding leg curls
15, 15
Lessening the eccentric is way more knee-friendly.

Crush gripper #2
Left:1,1,1  Right:0,0,1
Pretty excited about progressing with this.


  1. That rest pause is a real gut check for sure. Good on you. I think you'll find that you develop a lot of brute strength from that approach.

  2. Yeah, after doing it I was instantly a fan. I think it'll do a lot for consistency and not randomly having a mental rut over breaking weight off the surface. Although I've been saying that about things I've tried for two years now, haha, but I am having more good days than ever.
