Kuda's Training Log

I’m making a slight change to the routine I had above since I had planned to have heavier Good Mornings before the Deadlift day and I think doing lighter sets of 12 on Wednesdays would let me be fresher for them. Today I did the same weight and volume on them as I did in Monday’s training. Squats will probably stay as 8x8s

The actual squatting today felt better than usual but I must’ve tweaked my wrist squatting Friday because I’ve changed how I brace my lats for them. Nothing bad but it wasn’t 100% today.

Got pretty sick after the last time I posted so I haven’t done much besides sleep in the past week. I’m feeling a bit more normal lately so I’ll hopefully be easing my way back into the planned routine by Monday next week.
Today I did a quick 20 minute walk, I’m thinking of doing light full body sessions for the next few days so I can get some blood flowing and get back to the exercises I’m training but I still need to see how they’re feeling now.

Today:
My shoulders need to get used to the volume again, they felt too sketchy to do overhead work today so I just got volume in on the close grip variations and then did accessories.
