25 minutes incline treadmill 140BPM, final 5 minutes incline run 170+ BPM
Flat plate-loaded press 4 x 6-8 (4.5 PPS top set)
Single pec deck 3 x 12
Cable Y raise 3 x 8-12
Single cable rear delt 3 x 8-12
Single cross body push-down 2 x 10-12
Single cable overhead extension 2 x 10-12
Lots of cables I know but taking sets in desired rep ranges to failure so I can’t complain.
I think I figured out the BP conundrum. I take the occasional 0.25 Arimidex when I feel high E2 symptoms and it looks like the tub I loaded with a handful of what I thought were 1mg cut in to quarters have actually been other similar looking white pills which I must have mistaken for Arimidex. Possibly old T3 or something, I can’t even be sure. Bloods will come back with high E2 which will explain BP spiking. Popped AI last night and feel better already. Classic right?
My mate has a chest infection so trained alone and Saturday’s hike may be cancelled. Bummer.
Today was a lovely session. I shit you not when I say I could barely lift my arms by the end because my shoulders were so ridiculously pumped.
Hopefully I can sleep well without thinking I’m going to have a heart attack tonight eh?
Got the rice cooker full of the fluffiest Jasmine known to man warmed up nicely for when I get home and plenty of chicken breasts to chuck in the air fryer, have a good night fellas.
Doctor called back regarding the bloods and everything looks fine. They didn't do a hormone panel with that batch so I couldn't see where my E2 was but it must have been raised. Liver/kidneys in range. RBC is better than last time but still a little low and iron is on the lower end but improved from last bloods. I've not been consistent with iron supplements so I can bring that up quite easily myself.
Definitely slept better the last couple of nights. I feel much better for it. And RHR has stayed down too according to my watch. Looks like tomorrow's hike is officially cancelled as my mate is still suffering with a chest infection. I have another friend who says he'll do it but he's not very knowledgeable and it's supposedly a challenging/potentially dangerous route to scramble up. I'm still not massively experienced myself so it's not really appealing to me. Don't fancy falling to my rocky death just before Christmas. Means I can go in and hit legs tonight at least.

Nice session in the bag today.
Need to pin some Test/Mast/Primo today.
Going to take the dog out for a long walk and get some dinner. Probably visit the family later and then need to sit down at the laptop and make some training plans. This week’s been a record week for new coaching clients, it’s starting to catch on now and getting a lot of recommendations to friends too which is beautiful.
