Cat in the rack Posted July 28, 2015 Author Report Share Posted July 28, 2015 So it's a deload week, no heavy lifting, extra cardio, and on top of that its a week without caffeine, oh the joy. Today was going to be a cardio day but I am just exhausted, what with day-long shifts at work and just finishing a low rep week, I so rarely get days where I'm not on my feet all day. So today I'm taking off, letting myself recover, seeing as I don't have the rota for August yet, I don't want to wear myself out in the gym all week only to find out I have two really long shifts Saturday and Sunday, and get in to the gym Monday with not enough rest.Anyway, a weigh-in of 66.7kg again, looks like I'm seeing some net weight gain this month at long last, guess 3,050 calories might be about right. What with the lowered intensity this week I may see some more weight gain than usual, but we shall see. Woke up around 6ish, had bfast, not a whole lot going on today, like I said I'm taking it easy today. Tomorrow is a deload day and I've decided how I'm gonna do it. Gonna hit each of the compound lifts (squat, deadlift, BO row, bench, OHP) for 3x5 with reduced weight to around 60%, as well as single-rep sets of the typical bodyweight exercises (pull-up, chin-up, dip, hanging leg raise), followed by cardio (HIIT sprints, boxing, jump rope). As today's intended cardio day is being skipped I will be sure not to miss Friday's cardio day, then Saturday is another deload day but with less cardio as the next mesocycle may start Monday, and Sunday is a rest day. Though like I said I do not have the rota for Saturday and Sunday yet, so I may need to make changes.That's it for today, have a good one Quote Follow me on snapchat or instagram @ catintherackSquat: 115kgBench: 77.5kgDeadlift: 130kgTotal: 322.5kgWeight: 68kg Link to comment
