    Heavy Lower

    Squat - worked up to 3x165kg
    Hanging leg raise - 3x10
    Single leg curl 3x10 16kg

    Felt like I'd been hit by a train. Was really tried Friday arvo, then Saturday was still completely out of it. Had some pretty bad sleeps. Glute also fucked up and I couldn't do my top set. Not the best start to the program.

    Upper

    Bench Press - 4x5 95kg, 10x95kg
    Strict Press - 4x10 55kg
    Pull up - 6x5
    Band Tris push down - 2x20 red band

    Everything felt much better today. Been hammering some internal hip rotation stuff in hopes of sorting out some pains for lower days.

    Lower

    Ab roll out - 3x10
    SSB Box Squat - 8x3 85kg + 25kg (45s rest)
    45 hyper snatch grip DL - 4x8 45kg
    GHR - 3x10
    SL Leg Press - 4x20 40kg

    Quads still jacked up as usual. Felt the glute on a single at working weight so decided not to go up any more. Ended up being fine through all sets.

    Do you ever get run down due to the high volume? I just finished a 4 week hypertrophy block and felt like death towards the end.

    I constantly feel like a bag of rocks, regardless of the volume I do. So may as well do it anyway haha. I have random periods of feeling good, but they generally don't last long. I think my body just kinda sucks at living haha.

    Haha I hear you mate. As long as you're making progress, it's probably worth it, but some weeks I feel like I'm about to drown in fatigue and pain.

    Haha, it's a common feeling for me too.

    Yeah still making progress somewhat. Upper body seems to be going okay atm, but I continually have setbacks with lower body issues unfortunately. Week 2 into program and I already may have to change it up.
