    Cycle Four / Week One reps/sets

    Low Bar Squat - 120kg 3*2
    Comp Bench - 85 / 90 / 90kg *1
    Paused Deadlift - 170kg 1*3
    Dumbbell Incline Bench - 50lbs 12*3
    Dumbbell Press - 45lbs 12*3
    Cable Mid Row - 150lbs 12*3

    Pretty good SBD Saturday, given the fact that I was unable to get ANY SLEEP LAST NIGHT...I swear, I hate those kinda nights.

    Happy with the Squats, Bench was really strong, and the bar is finally back on the floor for Deads (a little uncomfortable, but OK).

    Ever try taking your magnesium and zinc right before bed? Works well for me for sweet dreams (albeit sometimes trippy).

    Sometimes when I have a bad night or two of sleep right before lifting I end up doing better than expected. Its just a crap shoot for me.

    Nice balanced lifts by the way.

    Tried to train and then play last week, and my court play suffered for it. Yesterday my play was much improved, and I was able to train today with no ill effects. We'll see how long this lasts...

    Actually I do take them before bed. Unfortunately I'm still adjusting to being "single", and sometimes I can't quite quiet my mind in the wee hours of the morning...that night was one of those nights.

    9/23/21

    Cycle Four / Week Two reps/sets

    Big Wheel Pulls - 193kg 2*2
    RDLs (3-0-0) - 93kg 7*3
    Banded Hamstring Curls (3-0-3) - Lime Green Band 8*3
    Pendlay Rows - 88kg 8*3
    Dumbbell Bench (3-0-3) - 45lbs 10*4
    Leg Ext - 120kg 15*3
    Revs Fly 45lbs 8*3
    Swiss Ball Planks - 60sec *3

    Made it through the week in pretty good shape.

    Had a severe case of Plate Math Blues on the BWPs. Today's session called for 183kg, and that's what I thought I had loaded...until my coach and a few other people showed me the error of my ways. I was fully invested in my belief that I had 183kg on the bar, I'm innumerate.

    That said, 193kg moved smartly, and beltless as well.

    SSB - 115kg 3*3
    SSB (3-3-0) - 90kg 1*4
    Belt Squats (3-3-0) - 50kg 10*4

    Good session today to follow up a nice night on the court last night. Was able to play a full hour, pretty much full out. The knee handled the up and back / side to side action with minimal to no swelling.

    Those tempo belt squats are killers...
