Bench Press (5/3/1)
Incline Bench Press
Band Triceps Pushdowns
Band Face Pulls
This is more or less a reload week. After some aches and pains and generally not feeling great, and being busy for the holiday, I have been working on recovery workouts but otherwise haven’t touched a barbell since my last bench workout.
The deloaded bench felt good. The incline felt light. The rows felt decent. Since I’m lifting at home instead of the gym this week, I used some bands for isolation work to finish off… just to pump some blood into my shoulders and triceps. Overall, felt good to be going again.
For this week, I am going to be very light on my carbs (incidental carbs from vegetables, protein shakes, and milk) since I only have light workouts.
I will work on a post reflecting on cycle 5 sometime today, so stay tuned.
