5/3/1 Wave 4, Week 1, Day 1: 5's
Absolutely horrible. Probably up there with the worst squat session I have ever had. My back was sore, and got worse with a massive back pump by the 3rd set. After last week went so well this is the polar opposite. I'm tempted to reset my training max, I shouldn't be struggling to hit 5 reps after 3 waves.
Adding these in this wave because I do next to no hamstring stuff. I'll build the weight up over time.
DB bench - 350 method
52 reps in total so I'll move up next time.
Neutral grip pull ups
1x7 assisted by blue band
1x6 assisted by blue band
1x5 assisted by blue band
18 total reps - 2 more than last week. I need to think about how I'm going to progress these.
DB hammer curl - 350 method
50 reps exactly. Move up next week.
I'm starting 10 days of low-carb from today (Wednesday) which will take me through to the end of next Friday. My starting weight is 264.2lbs. I expect to lose around 10lbs.
