Less weight than previous week, due lack of energy :-)

When you don’t have enough energy, there are a few options to deal with your training:

  1. skip your training
  2. full fill your program as planned
  3. full fill your program and take less weight (and safe your energy for your next training.

You can image which option I chose. The reason of my choice is that I want to full fill my ‘heaviest’ training / manage to lift the weights I planned to lift on a meet. A meet is the most important for me (normally 🙂 ) so one step back, can help you to make 2 of more steps forwards.  So I’m aiming to train (lift) good Friday at my weekly ‘normal’ powerlifting training. Also I decided to skip the strechting cycle, so I keep the tension on my whole body. Also I toke more rest between the sets. This training lasted approx. 105 minutes.
