The Ugly, the Bad and the Good

Well it was a mixed bag this week. Was out sick for a few days with stomach flu and only managed to get a couple days of training in. Weight has finally started moving in the right direction with the week average of 199 lbs. I am going to go back to a lean gaining phase starting in August so hoping I can get close to 195 lbs. Today was my heavy lower day and squats were on tap. Last week I got in three sets of 3 at 275 lbs. Got set up to tackle that today and it was just not in the cards. Decided to back off the weight and even after doing so I still struggled to get 3 sets of three with 225 lbs. While disappointed at least I kept going and got something out of it. Not everyday is going to see progress, you have to take the good with the bad. The Good this week was my daughter Grace trained with me today so I showed her how to do squats and then deadlifts which was very cool. Hoping she will continue with her training. I ran out of time before I had to go pick up my wife from work so will do deadlifts tomorrow.
