Treadmill walk 5min + Agile 8 It got pretty hot today. I was sweating a lot during the agile 8. Didn’t get around to doing DeFranco’s set of upper body dynamic stretches.
Deadlift: 5×110, 5×135, 5×165
These felt heavier than I expected them to be. Really felt the burn when I squeezed everything hard at the top. A little bit of lower back strain felt.
Boring But Big 50%
As usual, deadlift+squat days suck…a lot. I’m simply not accustomed to the high intensity squatting. First 2 sets were easy, but cardiovascularly, I was pretty spent. Took ample rest between each set afterwards. I also didn’t eat before lifting- I had left work early and wanted to hit the gym early so I could find a parking spot when I got back home.
Ab Wheel: 10/10/8/5/2
I was pretty much spent by the time I got to these. Fatigue set in and I couldn’t keep a rigid lower back. I felt my lower back buckling and entering an unfavorable lordotic position. I’ve already had issues with this in the past and so I chose not to exert myself too much. Nonetheless, still got a fairly good core workout.
Did not eat my 4th meal prior to the exercise.
