240 x 0 Didn’t budge. Weird. So I re-set, re-focused, and stepped up again…
240 x 0 -Stonewalled. Mind you, this isn’t me ego lifting all willy-nilly. This was programmed.
and a weight I’ve handled before. 2 weeks ago I had a solid 235, and last week I
had a solid 230 x 3. It was how decisively I was embarrassingly crushed that was
cause for concern.
195 x 3 x 3 I even had a hitch on set 2, rep 3 that nearly ended badly. Total discombobulation.
Face Pulls 3 sets of 15
Lat Pulls 3 sets of 10
25# Plate raises -45
I was crashing fast so I pulled the plug here.
I could chalk it up to a bad day.
I could examine whether this rep scheme has been beneficial to my upper lifts. In the past few months I’ve stepped over some milestones quite nicely: finally squatting 4 plates, able to deadlift 4 plates for reps at will. But I’ve suspect I’ve been losing some work capacity, and I’ve been experiencing some new joint pain (elbow and hip).
I’m due a deload, so I have time to think about where I want to go, and what I really need to do to keep moving forward.
