Got that sick feeling just prior to the volume session. But all things considered my prep has been good this week and today i even had 2 meals before the session.  So lets see how it goes, brb.

BS 6x5x140(PR), 4x140, 3x140, 2x140, 2x140

Notes:
I only managed 6 sets of 5!  I should have done a 7th set of 5 and gone home but i reasoned out of the ugly 5th rep and bargained to attempt another pretty 4 sets of 4 instead, which didn't happen either - bird in hand etc. Nevermind. Im going to fucking repeat this workout next week and crush it for all 10 sets of 5.

More bball today and heavy training. Please dont break body, please..

Bball practice

BS 3x127.5, 1x155, 1x160(PR), 4x147.5(PR)
submax jumps
maintenance hill sprints x 5
Back Xtn 10x90(PR)

Notes:
Bball really beats the shit out of me when i get back into it :( But i said F it im going to lift whatever happens. Finally cracked the 160kg milestone. Only happened because i did the first rep of 3x155kg PR attempt and thought nope nope that was too hard to rep out another 2 times. So racked it and felt fresh and strong enough to go for 160kg. It's done. The only shitty thing was the 4th and last rep of that 147.5kg - yup hella squatmorninged it :/ so erectors will be fried af the next couple of days. Hopefully recovered for the last high volume sesh on thursday though.

Rest day. Im happy to be 88.5kgish for now, been cutting thiis whole week so about time the scale showed up. Bball really does do a number on my body in a variety of ways. Hard on the body but the benefits to bodycomp are noticeable quickly too. Waist is getting tighter etc. Cud just be it makes me happy which leads to reduction stress and  water retention? I think i stay cutting until the last high volume day (thursday) - and then eat hard to recover then stay maintenance a while. I'm thinking it's okay to allow my bodyweight to drift up towards 91kg and try get my BS 5rm to 5x160kg - as per KF advice. I will keep it below 91kg for psychological reasons though, dont wanna be freaking out if i wake up 92kg or something. And keep getting in better shape by playing ball regularly now, im running out of time at 139 days to tournament time.

Irrelevant with that choice, when you say AxB , is it sets x reps or reps x sets? Is 10x5 10 sets of 5 reps or 5 sets of 10 reps?
Also, FWIW, KF's volume sessions were 5x8 ( 5 sets of 8 reps ), where those 8 reps were all out, looked more like a short-break MSEM cluster of 8 singles ( without the un/re-racking ).
woot

sets x reps .. isnt that how we read it X sets of Y reps haha. Can we just normalise the nomeclature please? i never say 5 reps of 10 sets irl smh

10 sets of 5 reps of 140 (i did 5555554322 last week only getting 6 sets and partial sets from there on, could have done 7 and gone home if i forced the 5th rep of 7th set tbh).

the pros and cons of repeating are:
pros: repeat 140 and have nicer form from here on as i progress each week by 2.5kg (and taper down in number of sets per week)
cons: waste 2-3 weeks getting back on track

Legit rest today. Volume tmr. When you've eaten clean and trained for 40 days in a row and still look like a fat piece of shit ha ha and still have another 140 to go.

At least my bodyweight went up today. But im still pretty stressed so life is probably just going to wreck all the hard work ive done over the last 6 months. Hate that it takes me the longest time to get into making progress and then it can just vanish.
