My back wasn’t pinching on me like it did on Sunday. Stayed up late on Sunday night again, so not a great night of sleep. Last night, however, I got more sleep. My back is even better today. Out in the garage at 3:30.
Jumped on the bike while I was waiting for Kevin to show up. Got 63 calories and 1.56 km.
The program called for 5×3 @ 240-245 this week. Last cycle, where I used the same base weight, I did 240 for all five sets and struggled. I felt amazing today so pushed higher and ended up matching my all-time 3RM with 255#. The heavy singles are the most I’ve touched in 2 years and only ended 10# under my PR. Cutting back on warm-up sets and all of the extra accessory work is paying off!

Doing another Rocket Race on the bike to keep the stress off my back. I wanted to keep 90 RPM for these and was right around there throughout. Ended with 683 calories and 10.73 km.
