5s week continued. Deadlift and Push Presses today. My stomach felt horrible this morning and I just couldn’t really shake it so my lifting suffered a bit. Also, I saw myself in the mirror yesterday and decided to begin losing some weight. I am about 4 weeks out at this point and I think my conditioning could use a little weight loss. After that I will be continuing the weight loss for 8 more weeks. Don’t have a goal weight, just look better after 12 weeks. Calories down to about 2600 a day and I am going to see how that affects me and my training.
Did Axle deadlift and will continue with this cycle. Not lowering the weights even though I can’t lift as much, just pushing through.
Everything in lbs, Woke up at 207.5
Was late so only did some foam rolling and lat stretches.

Was going to do two more rounds of this but I was beat after the first round. It’s comp weight so being able to do it for a full round was good enough for me. Going to stick to lower weight and build conditioning in the next 2 weeks
250 keg carry 60ft -> 250 sandbag carry 60ft, 250 keg carry back 60ft -> 250 sandbag carry back 60ft
Overall, felt pretty back about the training. I am pretty sure it was my stomach and not the less calories as I hit a pretty good 5rm on the push press without much issue. Going to see how Friday goes.
