    Upper Body 1:



    I felt pretty terrible today, from the moment I woke up. Lack of energy, mucus-y, dehydrated despite what would normally be sufficient fluid... Lifted any way.

    This was yesterday.


    Leg Press:


    I gave this a trial and can ascertain that it affects my spine in a bad way. I did 4 sets of 8, not too heavy, and moved on.

    ^^^^These.

    Lighter day following the end of the last cycle. 10kg on the belt for 3 sets of 10. Easy. I could have gone heavier and with more sets and been fine but that would...
