Pre-workout weight: 95.5kg

Pleasant surprise considering I've pretty much stuffed my face for the past week or so, and decided to take a break from the cut. Guess I held on to a lot of bad juju that let go with a mental break.

Sticking to the break as the long-term goal is to build a solid foundation around this bodyweight and I don't want to jack my cortisol levels up and tank my metabolism by pushing things too far now, yoyoing back up in weight when the cut is over.

Trying to be fully conscious in every rep. Feels like the past few months (years, if I'm honest) of stress and number chasing have lead to form decay, so I'm keeping the RPEs low for now and focusing on waking the entire nervous system up instead of just going on an autopilot that drives me into walls.

Touching base with these, as they've been the most beneficial deadlift variation to get me firing in the right ways.

Head further up the bench to cut the distance between unrack and ready-position shorter. Allow your elbows to flare a bit to bring the dormant pecs into the mix.

Deep elbow ache that got progressively better with each set. Had a similar sensation with DB rows last time.

Got momentarily sick last week and was fatigued and busy for the rest. Back for a lil while til I'm off travelling for a week and a half. Will make an effort to maintain training since it does wonders for my well-being.

Messed the order of my exercises up - it was originally slated to be a rows and bench-day, but the intrusive squat thoughts apparently won.
