Decent week, think I could make Friday a higher volume upper body day. Felt apprehension before lunges because I know how much they suck, considering breaking it down into smaller sets but okay for now. It took around 30 mins to complete the lunges which is crazy, ~4 mins per set and 3 mins rest.

I had been hovering around 2600kcal/day and making steady progress but I got impatient and had some 2900kcal days, all the xmas treats at my office make that easy. Need to stay strict and not let my diet go to shit just because I’m “bulking”, keep it clean!

Below is 105kg back squat, I’m really getting in the groove now and it reminds me how much I love lifting heavy(ish) weights
