Took few days off, got slight stomach illness, no energy for lifting, and this 4 days a week took a toll on me after one month, warn out. Back to start up Month 2 now, still a little low on energy, we see how this goes.

hows the first day back after a deload feel?
Now Month 2 being 60% assistance, and first day back lifting heavy again, and just being sick earlier in week. Yeah a swift hard kick in the nuts for sure.
Doing 5 reps Military 130lbs was tough enough, with slow good form
No way I can do this program and upping the assistance weight 10% heavier each month, and still do 5 x 10 reps/sets with good form. Month 3 is 70% assistance weight and still 5 x 10, now way, I will have a heart attack :omg:

Good work, bud. Glad to see I'm not the only person getting his ass kicked by BBB, haha
Since moving the assistance weight up another 10% for Month 2, on the final couple of sets, 4th and 5th, I can't complete 10 in a row with slow good form, so going to an HTC-12 rep scheme, 6 in a row, then a pause for like 10 seconds or so, do 2 reps, and then wait a short bit, and do the final 2 reps.
Is that ok ? Or cheating ?
Nothing wrong with a pause, in my eyes, others may differ though.
I read up on the 3 month challenge only the other night, in fact. Sounds so so tough.
I'm only on normal BBB and I'm shaking by the end of the last set, haha.
