Saturday, Sunday, Monday 16/17/18 June

Went down to 208.6 on Saturday but that was dehydration from Portugal v Spain pints. Yesterday I spiked to 211.1 and today I was back at 209.8.

Did some LISS on Saturday and had the day off yesterday. Feeling extremely fatigued today so I just mustered up the energy to get some chinups done but it was essentially a rest day.

Tomorrow I’ll either go for a bench press PR or just check my TM, depending on how I feel.

COMING HOME STATUS: IT’S

Also I had €5 on England to win 2-1 & Kane to score first at 14/1, plus an absolute bargain 11/5 Kane to score first and 23/10 Kane each way.

Back up to 211.6 today for whatever weird reason, but my average weight for the past week is still trending downwards.

So at this point I was feeling good enough to work up to a PR, but I misloaded the bar, forgetting to add weight to one side. I got the lift but obviously it was lopsided. That threw me off a lot and then the next corrective rep felt super heavy so I just called it a day.

Assistance
Barbell row: 8x40, 5x50, 5x60, 3x65, 1x70
This was super easy. Can’t remember the last time I did a barbell row. Enjoyed them. Good to know I’ve got them in me for when I start one of Alpha’s programs after the summer.

Good news: down to 207.8 today.

Bad news: girlfriend’s chest infection got its claws into me. No squats for me today. Though, also, no work - so not bad overall. First time I’ve ever called in sick to work, actually.

Workout

Coughing superset with sneezing. Good for the abs.

Over the worst of being ill now. Still not feeling incredible, but the 6am wakeup wasn’t total hell so off to the gym we go.

Got there to discover that in my absence they’ve put in a new power rack so there are now TWO places to squat!

Also, weighed in at 207.7lbs today.
