It really feels like I have missed an upper workout last week, conditioning and stamina were below average. The good news is that the numbers went up. I almost got a 3rd rep on the last set of decline bench and a 5th rep on the last set of shoulder press but form rules weight any day so I decided to quit. Unfortunately, I forgot how much weight I used on pull-ups so I ended up using more assistance than before, only a 4lb plate but still more. The reps were higher than the last time I used 6 plates so it wasnít bad. Also, 295 felt really heavy on deadlifts. I should start using a belt during my next blast. I donít need it while squatting so my core wonít lag much behind because of belt use.
I did manage to gain some weight in the last two weeks but given the events last week, it is actually encouraging. The changes in the mirror, however, are more pronounced. Now I have 2 weeks to make the most of this regimen before I start cruising. I hope Halodrol Liquigels hits the shelves by then because I want to stack it with X-Factor during my next blast, which is planned to start 4 weeks from now. I will of course keep a log.
