At the end of last week I started the GSS workout. I rarely max out so I estimated 72% of my max. I even calculated more Wendler style where it was more likely 72% of 90% of my max. The first lower body workout felt good and relatively easy, although I was pretty damn sore for the next 2 days. But for yesterdays 2nd lower body workout my lower back felt unrecovered. I wasn’t able to complete 5 sets for deadlifts and RDL’s otherwise I would have been going at about a 9/10 on intensity. From past experience, I didn’t want to push it that hard otherwise my strength plateaus’ real fast.
My question is should I lighten the load next week and start at a lower weight than I did this week so that I can get through the 2nd lower body workout? Or maybe just maintain the same weight on lower body lifts as I did this week and add weight on the 3rd week?
