Did my A routine today which would be the equivalent of the last week of the 10s. Core Exercises: Dead Lift 215 lbs x 20 M-Time Incline Bench 135 lbs x 20 M-Time Superset with: Wide Grip Pull Ups BW(154 lbs)+10 x 20 M-Time Cardio: 1 mile jog I’m getting to that point like last cycle were I wake up feeling like I’ve been in a car accident. However, once I start working out I feel great again, at least until later at night. For comparison I looked back at the log of my first cycle to see what I was doing at this point and found the following: Dead Lift 180lbs x 10 x 10 = (35 lbs improvement) Incline Bench 105lbs x 10 x 10 = (30 lbs improvement) Wide Grip Pull Up 90lbs x 10 x 10 (74 lbs improvement) I was still able to start the pressing movement from the bottom doing concentric first. I will keep that up for as long as I can. I did some reading here yesterday and realized I have my cardio backwards and should be doing jogging on my heavy leg day so as not to compromise recovery on the light days. So I dropped doing the 15-20 rep metabolic sets at the end and will see how jogging does for now. Also didn’t attempt any assistance work as I’m really starting to feel each workout now. I have a feeling that as the weighs get heavier I might have to start tapering of the number of reps even using M-Time. Alternating between 20 Dead Lifts and 20 Full Squats every 2 days is starting to take it’s toll. Shoulders feel much better having changed out Standing Shoulder Presses for Upright Rows.
