So, here is that last update and review will follow it.
This is from Thursday, RE Lower.
As mentioned, it was an awful workout. The weights were heavy, my stomach felt strange, joints ached, and I just couldn't loosen up for the life of me.
Pre: Last bit of Stimul8, maybe 3/4 scoop, maybe less. It was hard to tell.
Warm-up: Foam Roll ITB/Add./HF/Quad/Vast.Med., LBBS Bar x 5, BB Mash ITB/Add./HF/Vast.Med., LAX Ball Glute/Calf/Pec/Upper Back, LBBS bar x 15 (still tight. wtf?), Band External Rot (Hips), Band External Rot. (shoulder), BR Hip Flexor Stretches LBBSx45x10, 135x8, 185x8, 225x8 (all heavy??)
LBBS: 275x6x2, 245x6 (cut volume, weights were heavy and my knee was aching something fierce)
Rack Walkouts: 315x1, 405x1
Front Squat: 135x5, 185x5, 205x5
4" Deficit Pulls: 185x6, 225x6 (standing on 2 plates)
Band Assist GM: 275x18 (13, 5) Note: wanted 25, back cramped up and I couldn't get anymore...
Notes: Weights were heavy, obnoxiously heavy actually. Ended up cutting a lot of volume out of this session, was supposed to do 4x12 on squats, 5x5 FS. Neither of those happened. Still sweating a lot and had a good amount of energy, but the strength just wasn't there. Oh well, I guess the two ME session this week really took it out of me
Went home, felt like butt and slept for 12 hours. (Had some of dat dere diarrhea as well). Still feeling relatively weak today, weight holding ~178.
