Week 12 Day 1: 12/12/11
Unfortunately had around 5-6 hours of not so good sleep.
Think this was my downfall as I didn’t have the proper rest and I did not have full capacity in my energy level today.
Because of that I believe my form was crap and I ended up hurting my lower back.
So after my bench press I decided to call it quits and just go home.
I think I may have strained my lower back during squats so decided to end Mad Cow 2 sessions early and just relax and recover for a couple of weeks then start 5/3/1 on January 2nd. (I was planning to end Mad Cow after my 12th week anyways.)
Going to find my starting max for 5/3/1 most likely on December 28th and hopefully I am fully recovered by then and gives me a couple of days of rest before 5/3/1 start.
Had a good run setting some nice personal records for myself so happy with the outcome in the long run.
