    Cycle Three / Week One reps/sets

    SSB - 87.5kg 5*3
    Paused SSB - 105 / 110kg *1
    Belt Squat - 60kg 10*3
    Revs Fly 40lbs 15*3
    Leg Ext - 80kg 15*3
    Cable Mid Row - 140lbs 15*3
    Leg Ext - 80kg 15*3
    Palof Up/Down - 10kg 15*3
    Banded Dead Bugs - green band 60 seconds *3

    Semi humane start to the cycle, coming in at 15% less than where we ended. Well, it was humane up until the "core" work.
    Fucking Palof u/d and Banded Dead Bugs...I have no words to describe my intense dislike of these. I think my coach secretly hates me.

    Cycle Three / Week One reps/sets

    Larsen Bench - 62.5kg 6*3
    Spoto - 72.5 / 5 / 7.5 / 80kg *4
    Incline Fly - 40lbs 12*3
    Shoulder Cluster - 10lbs 10*3
    Cable Pec Press - 8 / 10 / 12 / 14kg *8
    Dips - bw +8kg 10*3
    LTE - 30kg 12*3
    EZ Bar Curls - 30kg 20*3

    Again, we start the cycle about 15% less than where we ended the last one. Spoto work was written as RPE 7, had a hard time finding it, but 80kg seemed right.

    Overall a nice start to this cycle.

    Big Wheel Pulls (100lbs plate) - 158kg 4*3
    Glute Ham Roller - 12*3
    Revs Hyper - 30kg 12*3

    Surprisingly easy / light day off the floor from a programming standpoint.

    \Getting closer to the floor, no pain or twinges in the knee, good back position on the set up.

    I like days like this...

    A spicy SBD Saturday. A bit harder than it looked on paper.

    Overshot the Squat and Bench. Sets were written as rpe7 and I think the first sets were 8s.

    Undershot the Deads badly. They were supposed to be rpe8...don't ask me why I went so light, but better safe than sorry at this new height/stance.

    Another nice Bench session. Gym owner purchased 10 new Elieko Combo Racks. Man alive are they sweet pieces of equipment.

    The Bench itself has a grippy area for the shoulders. These are competition racks, how Eleiko get's away with this I have no idea.

    Cycle Three / Week Two reps/sets

    Big Wheel Pulls - 168kg 4*3
    Glute Ham Roller - 12*3
    Revs Hyper - 40kg 12*3
    Wide Grip Bench (3-0-0) -85kg 1*4
    Revs Fly - 45lbs 12*3
    Leg Ext - 120kg 15*3
    Rows - 75kg 12*3

    Hard session, as the heat and humidity was turned up to 11 today...will it ever end.

    Pulls were harder than they should have been. Overshot the Bench by 1RPE.

    Wanted to go home and leave the successories, as I was just a wet mess. Toughened up and got 'em done. I would have been kicking myself an hour after I got home if I had bailed on the assistance work today, heat or no heat.

    Cycle Three / Week Two reps/sets

    LB Squat - 100kg 5*2
    Paused Bench - 72.5kg 5*2
    Big Wheel Pulls - 158kg 5*2
    Flys - 30lbs 12*3
    Revs Flys - 30lbs 12*3
    Dumbbell Press - 35lbs 12*3
    Leg Ext - 60kg 30*3

    Had to dial back everything, as I just didn't have "it" today. To get to the proper RPE, I had to back everything off by10-15%.

    Had moment of catastrophizing: IS IT CANCER RELATED!!!

    Had to calm the fuck down, and reflect back on how hot and hard Thursday was.

    Still, it freaked me out just a little bit.

    We had a short respite last night, it was nice enough to go out and hit some balls on the range without sweating my balls off.

    Unfortunately, we are right back in the humidifier today.
