Stitched Up

Went it to the Doc for a minor procedure to remove some cysts from my head yesterday. Should probably take it a little easy today and tomorrow, but fuck that. Just can’t get it wet for 48 hours. Out squatting shortly after 7:30. Warmed up with 5:00 Air Dyne (2.31 km).

Coffee Squats

Pause Front Squat (3s in the hole)

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 3×185#
  • 3×225#
  • 3×250#
  • 3×270#
  • 3×280#

Wore the belt for the last 3 sets. Felt like I was starting to break down on that last set so was a good load for the day. Really like taking the videos though because it shows it was better than it felt during the actual work. When I started this little experiment I didn’t expect to be at 38 days in a row and never thought I’d be pause squatting as much as I am. I hadn’t done any pause front squat with more than 275, so hitting 280 for a triple felt pretty boss. All aboard the Gain Train!

Had to lay down for a nap in the evening. I was feeling pretty out of it. Not sure if the squats took a lot out of me in the morning or if my body is just reacting to the surgery. I felt great this morning. Made it to the gym for bench night. Warmed up with Crossover Symmetry Activation.

No B.S. Bench Press

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135#
  • 5×165#
  • 5×195#
  • 4x5x215#
  • AMRAP 205# (12)

Was not feeling strong at all. Matched my AMRAP from the first week of the cycle though. Didn’t even bring my gym bag or other shoes so I wouldn’t be tempted to stick around and for weightlifting. Got in the work and got out. Tomorrow is another day.
