I decided to go for some heavy deadlift singles instead of the programmed 170kg triples, and it was a mistake. All three were particularly ugly, and I hurt my back on the last one. To compensate I did more than the programmed volume on the bench press.
I have come to the realisation that I share @T3hPwnisher’s feelings about training, although it has taken a long time to admit it. There is absolutely nothing about the act of lifting weights that I enjoy - I am purely doing this out of habit and a morbid fear of weediness. The bodyweight stuff feels a bit different - probably because it is so sub-maximal and I feel no pressure to push things harder. Deadlifting 170kg when you’ve deadlifted 220kg previously feels weak, but a pistol squat is just a pistol squat, and I do get some satisfaction from executing a well controlled bodyweight movement. Lifting heavy iron just straight up sucks lol.
