Oh my legs are going to hate me tomorrow.
Truth be told they don’t much like me now. They were still stiff from Tuesday’s workout when I went to the gym this afternoon, and my god did they not like squats. They were fine on the first, bar-only warmup set. They complained on the 95 lb warmup set, they really complained on the 135 lb warmup set, and by the time I did my first 180 lb set, they were screaming.
They weren’t exactly cramping, but they hurt, for sure. Still, I managed all five sets, and assuming they don’t implode this weekend, I’ll be back Monday for 185 lbs. I can only imagine how stiff and sore they’ll be when I wake up in the morning.
Thanks to deloading, bench press and barbell row were really easy today. I don’t think I even waited 90 seconds between sets. I might increase my weights by 10 lbs next time instead of five. We’ll see how brave I am.
See you (hopefully) Monday.
