I tried to run all my errands at once today. The big mistake was having a full restaurant meal and then trying to work out. When I was straining on overhead press, it was clear a lot of the blood I needed was busy in my stomach. I still managed to complete 5×5, although I was maybe turning a little blue in the face from the strain. From now on, I eat after I lift. Next time, graduate to the big bar and the safety cage for overhead press.
Squat and deadlift continue to be ‘easy’. In fact, I think the squat is getting easier even as I add weight as my form has improved and I think I have more flexibility from the repetition of stretching down low to get my thighs horizontal. At 15 pounds added per week on average for squat and deadlift, they should become more challenging quickly however.
Devour your prey raptors!
