Jonathan Byrd 10 Weeks Out

Starting to add more and more gear into the training cycle. Currently working in a set of 2 ply grid stitched predators and will be trying out a new SDP this week. Really excited to get moving in the right direction in this cycle and see what kind of numbers I can put together. The plan for this week was still to ease into some things, work on getting 100% and hit a few week points.

Bench: Warm ups felt pretty shitty. My shoulders were hurting so I went to the 3 board pretty early and just worked the lockout.
3×5 @ bar
3×5 @ 135
2×5@ 225
added 3board
1×3 @ 315
1×3 @ 365
added an oversided SDP just for lockout work
shirt off

Aux Day
5×5 row
5×10 dumbbell shrugs
3×20 face pulls
5×5 piston squats

Complete deload
kb swings
lot of foam rolling
lots of spotting and loading.

I am ready to get things rolling! I will hit the ground running hard on Monday with a new SDP. The break in process will be fun. I have never been in an actual tight shirt or one that fit well. Lucky with the team around me I should be able to have a fast learning curve.
