Notes: First day back to real training after the last week recovering and cleansing after the OPTathlon 3.0. I was raring to get back into things and woke up with a very steady HR and a HRV scores of -9. I am figuring this is thrown off from last week's Monday score, which was taken after the OPTathlon. I went into this workout with caution, but since the movements were pretty basic, I felt pretty comfortable. Split squats were ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL. Haven't done single leg or tempo work in a while and this hurt bad. I had jello legs afterward and I still had 40minutes left in the workout. For the rest of the workout I focused on perfect reps, not just putting up heavier weights. Lunges were tough to stay balanced. I liked the torso rows and definitely felt those in my rhomboid/scap. Back squats were torture and crushed my quads and butt. Tough to keep in the legs up in the L-pullups because of the smoked hip flexors.
