    The Road Back rep/sets
    Cycle Three / Week Three

    LBS - 117.5kg *6
    LBS - 100kg 6*2
    Goblet Squat - 20kg 20*3
    Wide Grip Pulldown - 100lbs 15*3
    Dead Bug - 60sec *3
    Hammer Curls - 70lbs 10*3

    Gyms are officially open in NYS, so all the gang is back together. It's nice to have the community back under the same roof physically!

    Pretty good top set, had another two or three reps available...a couple of reps were questionable, but on balance - a good day.

    Humid as all get out. I'm gonna miss the AC in the old gym, but that's the only thing. This new location is only minutes from where I live. Additionally, the owner has invested in a lot of new equipment - such a deal!

    Nice Saturday session. Gym opens officially Monday. Lot's of rules and regulations in place to keep the guvn'r happy.

    As opposed to a face mask, I get to wear a face shield. Luckily I already have one that I wear occasionally for Squash (when I forget my goggles).

    The Road Back rep/sets
    Cycle Three / Week Two

    Dead Stop Deadlift - 135kg *6
    DS Deads - 115kg 6*2
    Tempo Down RDL - 95kg 8*3
    Glute Ham Roller - 15*3
    Dead Bug - 60 sec *3
    Tempo Down Dips - +8kg 5*3
    Tempo Down Hammer Curls - 50lbs 5*3

    Just exhausted, mentally drained...no sleep the last few nights. I was forced to stay within the assigned RPE due to the fatigue. That, and the fact that my back is still a little "tight".

    Performing these pulls from a dead stop is extra taxing as well. It's extremely fatiguing to have to set up properly for each rep. Which is why I normally do these lifts "touch and go", it also allows me to keep my back in extension easier doing T&Gs. But we must suffer for the "cause".

    For the amount of shit I'm dealing with, I'm OK with how today went. Spent a good hour and a half on the phone with attorneys regarding a business matter prior to hitting the gym. Not the best way to enter the training day...

    Perhaps. I think the fact that there are no competitions on the horizon was a calming factor.

    I really was resigned to this being an injury that was going to effect me for weeks.

    Deadlifting will be somewhat problematic. Bench shouldn't be an issue.
