Well, I just completely destroyed some ice cream sandwiches, Doritos, Frango mints, and Hawaiian bread. Oops. I have no idea why I’ve been dying for everything besides healthy food this week but here’s what I can tell you… it’s bad news bears. Oh well. It’s max out week….. KP NEEDS THE CALORIES!!!!!! 😉
So today I hurt my knee and wasn’t able to go for a 3RM front squat… Hopefully it’ll be feeling better tomorrow so I’ll be able to do what I need to. Although I was supposed to test for a max on a 3 position clean, I kinda just went for a PR from the floor. Which I made (yay!) but then missed from the hang. Oh well! I feel like 3 rep and 5 rep maxes are designed for you to fail. Is that just me? Probably….
Then I found this awesome ass stuff that smells amazing and supposedly is like Epsom salt on steroids. We’ll see if I feel ready to go tomorrow. Maybe an Epsom salt 2.0 bath and about 250g of sugary carbs will have me feeling good tomorrow morning!
What I also want to note is that I rarely ever wear a belt or sleeves unless I’m really, REALLY hurting. I’ve worn my sleeves 2 or 3 times before today…… and I ordered them back in December. Yeah… my knees might implode.
