I was feeling a little “off” yesterday, so I decided to call it a rest day. I was actually concerned that I might be coming down with the flu, as the signals of some slight joint/muscle soreness, upset stomach, just a general weird feeling overall was ever present.
The symptoms continued throughout the day, into the following morning, but never got worse, and in fact decreased. I think I fought off whatever it was, because I was ready for some squats this morning.
Training: w/u with a couple dumbbell swings (2 sets of 15.)
Squats: w/u 45×10, 95×5, 115×5, 135×3, 155×1, Then 175 for 20 singles.
SLDL: 133 for 20 singles.
Nutrition: Calories 2971 Carbs 262 Fat 87 Protein 158
Notes: I have never been much of a warm-up guy, but with this style of training, I’m much more focused on it, especially the idea of generally warming the entire body temperature for the heavy work to come.
