    Not a good day at all...

    Tuesday
    07.24.12
    SQ/DL@80%


    Squat
    Barx10
    145/2x5
    255/2x5
    345x5
    435x5
    Added belt
    490x5
    Added knee sleeves
    540/3x5

    Deadlifts
    245x3

    Done...All sets felt heavy and slow, and I got pretty sick after the last set of squats. I was lightheaded and had no drive. I sat down and tried to relax for about 20 minutes and still felt like shit. So I stopped after the first set of deads and i'm hoping next week will go much better.

    I know the problem...too many reps, lol. I wouldn't feel like deadlifting or anything else after that either.

    It's weird, I did 600x5 a couple weeks ago and felt fine. The only difference here is that I did 540 for 3x5. Oh well, next week I'm doing triples so hopefully I'll feel better.

    Sometimes life gets in the way and going through the motions is all you can do. Far better than nothing!

    I know that's what I meant. One set of 5 is more than enough. 3 sets of 5 is too many reps lol.

    Update!!!

    I've had a busy weekend. Early Friday morning our baby girl was born weighing in at 7lbs-15oz. Both mother and baby are doing good. I'm still planning on doing the meet, but I'm not 100% sure. I'm going to train today and tomorrow for sure, but I might skip Thursday and Friday and then pick it back up next week.

    This is our third child and I'm not going to lie, it's pretty hard, lol. But it's also been pretty cool so far. It's also brought back some good memories from when my first was born.
