slight dOMS

My back is letting me know it deadlifted yesterday. It and my arms are sore but nothing awful. I'm not looking forward to running tonight and not sure why, maybe I'll do it in the gym on the treadmill instead of pounding the sidewalk. Tomorrow I have plans a couple of cities over, which means I need to lift earlier then usual. Squats, 3 x 5 x 125, or 15 reps at the weight somehow. Overhead press 4 x 5 x 60, adding a set here instead of increasing the weight. Bench press 3 x 5 x 82.5, power cleans 5 x 3 x 72.5

So I've come to the point where I have to fiddle around with the SS template instead of progressively going heavier. Now I will add in sets or reps to keep the workouts harder and go heavier when I can. Being rather unmotivated to cook if affecting me too, must remember to pick up protein powder next time I'm at the store.

  1. Good luck on your workout today. How did you decide in the past to work in 3x3? I think there was something on the forum about that. I have done 5x3 squats in the past couple of weeks, hopefully that will be easier to recover from than 5x5 (I'm doing TM) My press is just at 1x3#60, my max reps at that weight. That is a hard lift to progress on. Keep up the good work! Carolyn
