This week Monday’s deadlift session of TSC Prep called for a set of 2, set of 1, set of 1 at near-max, but it was stuck to the floor and I couldn’t budge it. Should I re-try on the second DL day this week, or skip it and stick with what the plan calls for for day 2 (5,3,2 between 70-90%)? 1RM going into TSC Prep was 270. Worked up from 5x5 @ 190 in week 1 to 2x2 @ 255 last week. Monday was to be 2,1,1 @ 265. After the fail, I moved on to the swings and getups portion of the session (no problems). Compounding factors: - Lots of computer/chair time for 9 hours at work that day - Later evening training than usual - Fast food dinner on the go 2 hours prior to training So weak/stretched legs and caloric deficit for the day, and stressful commute/shuttling kids around and getting them fed, bathed, and to bed (not a strong headspace going into a near-max pull session). When I set my 270 PR, it was on a Saturday morning after a good breakfast (which thankfully is what the TSC will be too). Today’s session will be a better dinner, but still lots of chair time due to my office job. Was I right to stop any attempts, or should I have proceeded with less weight? Should I re-attempt today? Or stick with back-off sets session?
