Today is my first day of logging AAEFX K-Otic.
420x1 PR (straps)
Today was yet another awesome day of pulling. I gave straps a try and was very pleased with the results. I'm able to shrug significantly more weight, with more confidence. I'm not sure I could have gripped the 420# pull today without them either. It was a little bit of a grinder, and taking grip out of the equation made it less daunting. The pre-workout was definitely giving me an energy boost. I didn't feel as fatigued at the end of the workout as usual. I could have easily thrown another few exercises in there, but I knew it was time to get on with the day. I'm thinking next weeks DL day won't have any singles, more likely ending with some moderate triples. Body felt great afterwards today, especially the upper back.
My Training Log
Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:
Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.
