Played aroudn with a few new assistance exercises today, thinking about switching them in for a few in my next cycle. I tried some cable pull-trhoughs, actually liked them a lot, but it seems like I am going to run out of weight to add fairly quickly. I did 3x10 today with I think only 25-30 lbs left to add, but still they felt pretty good. Also tried russian twists on the sit up board, also felt liked they worked wonderfully, but I was terrible at them....so just another reason to add them in. I am thinking i might ditch the front squats on my deadlift day to do another posterior chain movement. I feel like I probably am not limited by quad strength in anythign and would be better off spending more time on my hamstrings, glutes, and low back. Also, while i can't do more than 4 pullups, I was thinking of trying to work them in, maybe band assisted until I got better or dropped some pudge. Any thoughts from anyone?
I also just want to say, while i am only through my first cycle I am REALLY enjoying the program. I dont' feel beat up or tired, I feel stronger than I was a month ago, and if I am not mistaken I believe i am actually a few pounds lighter than at the beggining of the cycle. Overall, feeling really good about this, I think it might the best program decision I could have made.
