Saturday
2 Hand Pinch
Trained a LOT later than usual for one reason and another. Meals late in and so on. For whatever reason the reps were up and down like a yo-yo. So, as per a suggestion of a lifting buddy online, I did 25 total reps. It took 7 sets

Wednesday
Knackered. Early start where I felt like my breakfast hadn't kicked in energy wise. Again this might come down to only having had one day where I've not worked out in some way in coming up to 3 weeks.

Leg Press
Lots of warming up. To 650-kilos x 8 reps H2

Power Squat Machine
to 460-kilos x 3 hard ass reps. I'd planned, if possible, to hit 12 reps

Seated Leg Curls
to stack +4 plates x 12 reps

Leg Extension
to stack +4 plates x 12 reps

Bwt down a lb @ 292lbs

If I repeat what I've done the last few years it's every day and even two times a day and then, in the last 4 days, NOTHING. It's using the theory of super compensation.

Hi Steve, that makes a lot of sense. I have noticed if i have had a forced lay off of a few days that the first session back my normal working weights seem much easier, plus i am itching to get lifting.All the best for the comps.
