As much as I'd like to, I can't ignore the bad workouts when they happen. The other two workouts from last week were bad workouts. Hopefully this won't happen again with some adjustments to the training cycle.
March 27, 2014 – Week 10, Day 2
21" Safety Squat Bar Box Squats
Comments: Knew something was off, I was just plain tried all day. Couldn't stop yawning. Light stuff felt fine but once I got going, it felt super heavy. Had to grab the rack to save myself on 465lbs. I thought perhaps I wasn't firing on all cylinders and just needed to psyche up. Yeah, just about crumpled by 505lbs. Exhaustion was too much and I scrapped the workout, went home, showered and went to sleep early without dinner.
March 29, 2014 – Week 10, Day 3
Comments: I thought that resting would be enough to make me back to normal. Nope. With the downpour, outside work was not happening so the plan was to do deadlifts and make up the assistance stuff I missed on Day 2. Didn't happen. Weights just felt heavy, even at the start. Tried to stay positive but again, hit a wall. Rest and get back in the captain's chair for the next week.
