    Final Thoughts:
    I'm happy with how this went. I squeezed as quick of gains out of it as I could. Like I said in my last post, my body is giving me too many warnings about 3 days per week of this. I feel that I will be able to keep making progress on Phase II for a significant amount of time.

    Thoughts
    : Kind of an easy get back into it day after a deload week. Everything felt good, form, bar speed, and tightness felt great. Just gotta keep the slow progress up as long as I can. Tomorrow will be a GPP Day and Wednesday will be a lighter day, so hopefully lower intensity until Friday will help keep me injury free.
