Re: New start, new log.

6/23/14 5/3/1 cycle 6 day 5
Press 5x95#, 5x110#, 10x125#, FSL 15x95#
Assistance work.
No conditioning.

I'm thinking the first set last may be adding too much onto the assistance work I'm already doing, because my assistance felt pretty lousy after grinding out 15 reps on the FSL set. Either that, or I'm still feeling the effects of sweating my *** off tearing plaster out of my house in the upstairs rooms with no air conditioning all day Saturday. Whichever, today didn't feel like a stellar day, but at least I got in there and got the work done.

I think I'm going to stick with just the base work on the 5's day. The Joker sets didn't take nearly as much out of me as the FSL seemed to, and I think I may be trying to add too much onto what's already working. I guess that's the problem with getting more information, like buying the beyond 5/3/1 book... There are so many good ideas I'd like to incorporate, but I need to just adhere to the K.I.S.S. principle and only change things gradually, as well as take something out when I add something in.
