After the stressful days, it was good to be able to catch up. Still
need to get sleep. Getting more feeling (good and bad) in the left calf
muscle. Not sure if that means the nerve is getting better or not. As
I’ve been noticing the past few sessions, walking and warm-ups seem to
calm the symptoms quite a bit. AMT for my workout warm-up. Heart rate
read 162bpm at the highest but it went down to 155bpm pretty quick. May
not check it in the future if the readings jump like that. Calf raises
were good. Right calf still feeling pretty tight on these but it wasn’t
like last time where it felt like it was cramping. Both styles of box
touches were good. Felt like I just getting a good sweat going and
getting the blood pumping. Squat therapy also felt pretty good. Any time
I felt like something was slightly off, I corrected it the following
rep. I also didn’t mess up the heights on these or box touches this
time. Box squat after that. Goal just to work up to 300lbs for a single.
Didn’t feel like that would be that hard since I did several reps with
275lbs last time these were the focus. I was feeling quite a bit of
lower back fatigue and the jump from 225lbs to 275lbs was noticeable.
300lbs was solid though. Then on to deadlifts with the touch and go
style. More weight, less reps but more sets. Did these with EOMOM rest.
Lower back definitely felt fatigue and I didn’t feel as speedy as I did
when the bar weight was 225lbs. Still working on the form, trying to not
hyperextend at lockout. I feel I got better as I did these. Scraped my
right shin a little and drew some blood. The high rep stuff followed.
Step ups felt good. Good little sweat going and no knee issues. Hypers
after that. I went up in weight and I didn’t think I would do so great
with how my lower back was feeling. Did the same thing as last time
doing half the top weight for a set to prep. Surprised myself by getting
two reps more than last time with 10lbs more. Felt good and tough on my
lower back and hamstrings. Finished up with abdominal superset. Still
tough but easy if that makes sense haha. One more to go.
