I had to adjust on the second giant set becuase I misread the routine the first time around. I was supposed to aim for 20 reps on each exercise in the second giant set. I had to cut out one set because I was about to go over the 1 hour mark for my lifting workout and I never allow myself to go over 1 hour anymore. Due to the wildfires here in California, the gym was really hot and the air was terrible. I was having a really hard time breathing so the rest periods were about 1:30 instead of 1:00. This contributed directly to the need to cut the workout short one set.
Overall, this time didn't feel nearly as hard as the last time. I plan to up the weight on the initial deadlift sets next time and I'm aiming for BW x 4 x 11 on the Explosive Pushups. I will try to add another set of 11 (a second one) to the Bulgarian Split Squats. I will do the same with the 2 Point Bent Row. The idea, as I always say, is to beat the previous workout. It is a competition against your own results. Nothing feels better than to beat your previous workout soundly. It builds character and mental strength.
