12” Log Jerks
Close Grip Barbell Bench Presses
Band Pull A-parts
28 Minutes of Stretching
Deload week is here. I wasn’t too sure how this would play out as my
hard weeks have been light weight, just putting maximum effort into it.
So I was curious what a deload of that would look like. Some exercises
dropped and weight either increasing or staying the same. No push-ups
this week, right into log work. I did my warm-up that I normally do when
I’m prepping for a heavier session even though this is still lightish
weight. More to get used to it again as I anticipate things will be
picking up the next mini cycle. Weight actually felt good with 150lbs on
the warm-ups for more reps. I wasn’t expecting that haha. Weight for
the actual “work sets” felt heavy on my shoulders. No real issues with
it but it is certainly tougher when doing it with a calm mind. Not going
ballistic this week with any weights. On to bench pressing. Same idea
with the log but didn’t really need to change my warm-ups much. A little
shaky but felt better than log. Really relaxed and in control here.
Finished up with bands for upper back. I was expecting some protesting
and aches in my shoulders and neck but no such issue and it actually
felt really good on the muscles. Home to stretch and eat.
