I kind of lost track of the time but wanted to get my 20 singles and had to rush to even finish in this time. I don’t think that 20 is too many, but the combination with 15 bench reps was quite a bit. Maybe will find a way to make it so I’m not doing a lot of volume on both bench and squat on the same day. (BTN press is not as rigorous)
I felt good until 8 PM last night when I got done playing Mario Kart. I was doing really badly and getting cranky, maybe I was clutching the controller too hard, but when I got up, my arms and shoulders were really sore, and I felt suddenly exhausted.
I took some aspirin and went to bed at 8:30. I was worried I was coming down with something. I slept til 7:30, waking up for a few minutes around midnight to drink a protein shake, brush teeth, etc. I have been maybe a little bit sleep deprived lately but I didn’t think that bad.
Continued to not feel so good. Wasn’t sure if I’d go to the gym after work. Consumed caffeine, aspirin, and ibuprofen. Decided to go at least for a light workout.
