Week 2, Day 1 Foundation phase

Today was a good, difficult session.  I increased the weight used on the leg press and was able to hit the prescribed set volumes for this phase of my training.  I got through the session in 80 minutes so I'm not too far off the pace I would like to maintain.

I noticed just a bit of SI joint irritation from the heavier leg presses so I may dial back the weight and increase the repetitions instead.  Either way, I was able to get through 6 sets of 3 beltless, pause squats.  My legs were pretty shaky by the time I left the gym and as I log this session, I'm already starting to get sore.  It was definitely tough to get through the entire thing but at least I didn't feel nauseous this time.

Leg Press:  450x10, 540x10, 630x10, 680x5

Pause Squats: beltless, 135x10, 225x5, 275x5, 315x3x6 sets

Barbell Rows:  135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 225x5

Bench Press:  all reps paused, 135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 275x3x6 sets

26 sets, 80 minutes
