2020.08.11PM; Cycle 18, Week 4, Days 2 & 4 Combined...my schedule got a little off due to some commitments, so in order to start the new cycle on Saturday, I condensed these two workouts into one quick one. It's my back off week, so no loss, these are light recovery weights and assistance can slide.

1. Box Squat
120 x 5
150 x 5
180 x 5

2. Deadlift
135 x 5
180 x 5

2020.08.12PM; Cycle 18, Week 4, Day 3...finishing up my de-load week a little out of order, but no harm. I will rest for two days before starting back in on Saturday. As I did on Monday, all sets of all exercises were done on the minute, 20 sets in just under 32:00 minutes.

1. Bench Press
90 x 5
120 x 5
135 x 5

2. DB Bench 4 x 10 @ 50's

3. Fly 4 x 12 @ 25's

2020.08.15AM; Cycle 19, Week 1, Day 1...

1. Press
65 x 5
80 x 5
95 x 3
105 x 5
120 x 3
135 x X
105 x 5
105 x 5
105 x 5
105 x 5
105 x 5

2. Front/Side/Rear Lateral Raise 4 x 12 @ 10's

3. Curl 4 x 12 @ 65

Concentration Curl 4 x 10 @ 30's

...yes, I failed to do a single rep with a 5 rep normal, which convinced me to recalculate for the press and consider a change in training. I would like to chalk this up to going hard on the margaritas last night, but no. I have a real problem with my left shoulder and it holds back all of my overhead pressing. I have a million ideas, most of them bad, but am still considering the way to get past this. So far my other lifts have progressed nicely, but the press haunts me.

Finished the day with a two hour hike to escape the heat.

Aloha!
