  • Lowered the weight for the squat and bench press. Squat should be 80% of Monday's 5x5 weight. Before I was just adding 2.5kg every week to my squat during recovery days, but this was incorrect.
  • Squat: 80% of 160kg is 128kg, so increase the weight accordingly next week.
  • Bench press is 89% of the previous 5x5 bench press weight (from 115kg to 102.5kg).
  • Lower back and right hamstring sore from yesterday's pad training

Ever since I started taking strength training seriously, I was bitten by the Iron Bug. Then it burrowed under my skin and laid eggs in my heart. Now those eggs are hatching and I... the feeling is indescribable.
