Pull Tuesday: A Decent Start

THIS was freaking gruelling. I have only myself to blame, of course, but after completing five of my six programmed money sets, I knew if I attempted the last one I wouldn't get all six reps and/or wouldn't have the energy for the rest of the routine. My lower posterior, as if to remind me that I haven't done this for a while, seized up during the second set and still hasn't released.

But I'm happy. This was, by far, the most volume I've performed at this weight and is a solid start to the year. I'm very glad I've not tried to incorporate a dedicated squat session, as the stuff I am planning for strongman events, combined with some fairly full-on pulling and pressing, feels like it's going to challenge me enough.
