Lower in the Basement

Earlier this week my shoulder felt tweaked and my energy levels were low, so I opted to take Monday and Tuesday off. The opportunity to enjoy near perfect weather did not hurt. I spent my time walking outside and stretching.

Today I did the following:

Warm Up - 12k Kettlebell
KB Squats to Box - 8 x BW, 16k, 24k, 20k's, 20k's; 5 x 24k's, 8 x 20k's
Deadlifts with Band - 8 x 60k, 85k, 90k, 90k
Split Squats - 8/8 x BW, 12k
Grippers - Reps on Trainer, #1, BBSA
Play with Ab Wheel

I felt like my strength was down a bit, but the number look ok. My endurance was definitely down. I think that is not unexpected, given that yesterday was a high protein, low calorie day. I'm going high protein again tomorrow and Sunday. Body weight has been around 157-158 all week.
