I took an extra recovery day after my last session because I had a work deadline yesterday and I didn’t think my training would go very well after spending the day burnt out and stressing like a mad woman. Happy that I did. The extra sleep felt great. Pretty great session today — It was my second to last day of Smolov Jr. and it went really well. I hit all my lifts quite solidly, though I was pretty fried after my squats. The last couple sets were challenging, more on my nerves than my muscles. I think I was just ready to be done … and wanted a nap 😉 Felt great though. Really happy with the entire session. Bench went well to 🙂 PRs all around!

Week 3 Day 3, Smolov Jr. Squat & Bench:
Squat: 8 sets of 4 @ 100Kilos (220#) This was a big volume PR for me. The most I have ever done 220# for is 3 reps (total.. 1 set) I was really happy to hit this so consistently for all 8 sets! Really happy with it.
Bench: 8 sets of 4 @ 45Kilos – This is the same weight I did last week when I was feeling ambitious. This week it felt easier and smoother.
