Went with a different approach tonight, decided to Wave Load ala Ian King. I went with a 3,2,1,3,2,1 pattern. This proved to be quite brutal and the last half of the wave was full of grinders. And i aint talking the delicious variety found at your local sub shop.

Not sure if I doubled the minis with more tension this week or the low carb-ing is getting to me....but this shit felt heavy!!! As previously stated the second half of the wave was brutal. The first part was strong, I figured out the volume difference from last week to this week and I did around 900lbs more, so i dont think it was that, but who knows. My CNS hasnt exactly been wired to work this way over the last year or so. Will see if it improves next week.

Pin presses proved equally as hard as the triceps were burned from the Band tension of the previous movement. I thought I was stapled on the first rep, then cleared my head and finished up. My triceps were huge, too bad there werent any Betties around to admire them. Maybe i should install mirrors for vanity's sake?

EDT Hurt. Period.

That was about it, all this was accomplished in around 45 minutes, including set-up and tear down. This has been a concern for me the last couple workouts. Life has been trying its damnest to throw monkey wrenches at me and discourage my training. I am sure this has contributed to my thoughts of "Heaviness" and "Sluggishness". Oh well, thats what its all about right? See how much you can take and still progress?

Keep it Dark, Eat Yer Gravy!!!
