Comments: Felt smooth. I can see how these are going to get tough quick.
90 85 (Dropped weight to start work sets)
Comments: Small jumps (2.5 lbs) for this lift are going to be the key to me not stalling.
Comments: The only lift where the work set truly felt easy. 20 pound jumps should be ok for now.
3x10: 35 lbs

Morning Weigh-In: 141.6 lbs.

Week 1, Day 1. If there’s every a time to be lured into a false sense of security, this would be the day. I have to say, it wasn’t nearly as easy as I assumed this first workout would be. I unfortunately didn’t get as much sleep as I hoped I would last night. I guess this was a good time to have that happen (when the weights are light). I originally planned to do my first set of presses at 90, but I’m glad I jumped down to 85 at the last minute.
After cutting back on my caloric intake for the past few weeks, I’m easing back into eating at or above maintenance as I ramp up my eating again. I did hit at least 1g of protein per pound of body weight today, so I’m happy with where my food intake ended up today.
