Maximum Strength Workout 25: This one was a b*tch. It lasted 80min and was a struggle from the get go. Felt like puking after squats and am sitting here at work with the AC blasting because I'm sweating buckets (it's 45 outside and I finished my workout 30min ago). Week 3 of this microcycle is the load week where intensity and volume are maxed and I really felt it. Also, I was still a little stiff from deads on Fri despite all the stretching and foam rolling work I've done since then. Only so much my 41 year old joints can take I guess. All moaning aside, I did hit all my targeted goals without decorating the gym floor.
