the past few days have been a blur. Thursday and Friday I have been totally laid out.  Thursday and Friday morning I worked, but Friday afternoon I just lay down at home, watching Netflix and drifting in and out of sleep. I felt like total crap, I was a wreck.

Saturday morning, and I still feel like crap, but I dragged myself down to the gym for some lifting. It was time. Even a mediocre session is what I need right now to get me back on track.

warmup: none

notes: long rests. my low back was pumped. I would lay down for 2 minutes, then get up, have a few sips of water, tense up, go for it again. so let’s say 2ish to 5ish minutes between sets. I would stop when the bar slowed down or when my low back was too pumped.
