Acheived my targets only during my squat day. The theme with this training cycle is my persistently poor upper body, which also affected my deadlift with my poor grip strength.

I also somehow hurt my left wrist while warming up on my squat day. This affected my ability to do external rotations and I had to adjust the day accordingly by replacing it with face pulls instead.

As I continue to battle extreme fatigue from life in general (evidenced by my infrequent updates overall), I believe that this is the first week where I’ve changed my nutrition a bit: I’ve started taking protein powder again. And to survive lifting through the Malaccan hot weather during the daytime, I had no choice but to go shirtless. Minimum reps and cutting down a lot on the accessory work was really all I could afford to do especially as I really crammed the sessions to make time for “life”.

Slow to update. Life has been hell, with a lack of time, rest, money, energy. This eventually made me suffer during my 5/3/1 week, which I’ve not updated yet (currently struggling through a deload week). This was the week pre-Raya, and dealing with the troubles associated with my wife’s Caesarean wound breakdown while caring for twin newborns. Not easy at all.
