Extra Rest Day

Yesterday’s R&R just felt so good I decided to do it again 😉 Psyche. Seriously though, I started my period and I just don’t feel like it’s the best day to do 30 heavy squats. I want to rest and not fuck up my back lifting heavy while menstruating. I will probably do my squats this weekend when I don’t feel like my guts are tied into knots, and then I’ll start the 2nd week of Smolov Jr. next week. We’ll see how I’m feeling. There’s a chance I’ll just take the next few days easy. I seriously hate training on my period.

Anyway… In news outside of my vagina, I’ve been doing some research into what program to start up after Smolov Jr is over. I’m thinking probably Juggernaut Method. I have had the old (version 1) e-book for a while and haven’t ever tried it. I did a bit of reading into it yesterday and mapped out a spreadsheet. I think it looks like it will be pretty fun, effective, and not so draining as Smolov (which, is exactly what I wanted, I’m not complaining, it’s just not sustainable). I am looking to take things a bit slower for my next cycle, maybe only lift 2 or 3 days a week rather than 4. I think I should allow myself some days for things like skiing and rucking without fucking up my lifting schedule (and back).

Food was great today, I made some healthier decisions than I have been the past week or so. Our houseguests are gone, so it’s time to get back to normal and stop eating like it’s Christmas & New Years. Lots of veggies, protein, and brown rice today. NOMS!
