Squats felt good at first and figured I’d knock out at least 6 reps with 225lbs, but 4 reps was my limit. Felt my legs get a little unsteady so I went ahead and racked it and took some weight off. Did a pyramid set with more reps than I usually do and mainly used 205lbs as my working number for the day. Deadlifts weren’t happening today at all. They felt incredibly heavy, but most likely because they were right behind squats.
Did too many arm exercises to name today. For arms I still greatly prefer finishing them off after heavy back and chest movements. Even when I target arms with direct exercises and a lot of volume I just don’t get the pump I usually do after the heavy compound movements.
Nutritionally today, I have to eat a huge dinner tonight, as I was busy most of the day. I had a high protein breakfast and around 4 pm I finally ate lunch. One of the latest lunches I ever ate, but I really needed to get calories in. Tonight won’t be the healthiest food (most likely Pizza Hut with the parents), but I need the calories to get to my goal of about 2500.
