Sunday: the regular hike with the dog
Squats: Legs felt fine hiking so I thought I was good to go here. But, alas, I was not. Weight was heavy today. 135x3 moved slowly. I had to readjust my expectations. My goal right now in the gym is to be able to point to something (anything!) that suggests I did better this session than I did last session. This might require some creative thinking over time.
Today, I inched my 20-rep max up from 110 to 115. Legs burned in a good way. For future note, this 20 rep max can be improved upon because it was not seamless or fluid. It went more like 10, ***, 5, ****, 5.
It may be that I need to borrow (sooner rather than later) from Wendlers 3, 5, 1 template; and down shift on week 2 of my lifting cycles so I have some capacity for greater intensity on the other training weeks.
