    5-1-17 morning workout
    Squat 140x5, 230x5, 250x5x3. Squats felt good. Continue the 5-pound progression. My back feels fine and the slow steady progression seems to be the best program for me.
    OHP 120x5, 140x5, 160x2x5, 160x3 – failed on the fourth rep. Stay at this weight.
    Curls 80x7x3. Looking to increase to 8 reps per set before increasing weight.

    5-5-17 morning workout.
    Bench 135x5, 185x5, 200 x5x3 last rep was a struggle. The form broke down on last rep of last set. Next time I will start with 205 and do a back off set of 200 or 195. I will keep the total weight moved the same or higher. Coaching cue – think up even when the weight is descending.

    Deadlift 135x5, 225x5, 260x5x3 no issues add 5 pounds.

    Curls 90x5, 90x4 80x5. Stay at this weight and do a back-off AMAP

    Plan on more flexibility work.

    5-8-17 morning workout – running late
    Squat 135x5, 225x5, 255x5x3 continue the five pound progression. Back felt fine.
    OHP 115x5, 145x5, 160x5x2, 160x2. I might have rushed the last set by not waiting long enough after the second work set. I plan to stop at the gym on Wednesday to do some auxiliary work.

    No time for auxiliary work today. I also need to focus on losing some weight.

    5-15-17 Morning workout
    Squat - 135x5, 225x5, 260 x5x3. Add 5 pounds
    OHP - 115x5, 145x5, 160x5x2, 160x4, back off 150 x5. Back off set was easy. Might try 1 Rep with possible max weight after the three work sets rather than a back off set..

    5-22-17 Morning Workout
    Squats 140x5, 230x5, 265x5x3. Squats starting to get heavy. The most difficult work set was the first. Add 5 pounds.
    OHP 140x5, 160x5x2, 160x2 – form breakdown. Used the 50-pound bar which is a little thicker than the 45 pound bars in the gym. Next time I will try using the 45-pound bar to see if it makes a difference. Also, on the last OHP I thought I might not complete the set, and I was right. Unlike when I was doing squats today when I knew I could complete all the sets. There is something to the mental game in making a successful lift.

    5-26-17 morning workout
    Bench 135x5, 175x5, 200 x5x2, 200x4. Did not feel comfortable on the 4th rep so I did not attempt the 5th rep since I did not have a spotter. Back off set of 185x5 which felt good. I will try a little heavier weight with less reps them do back off sets to get to the total equivalent volume of 3 sets across.

    Deadlift 135x5, 225x5, 275x5x3. I used the 45-pound bar, which is thinner than the 50-pound bar. I started to lose my grip near the last set. I am still using double overhand. I guess I need to use a better hook grip.

    6-2-17 morning workout - time limited day
    Bench 140x5, 180x5, 205x4, 200x4, 200x3, 195x4. I tried adding 5 pounds and doing AMRAP to see if I could break through the stall point. I think it worked a bit.
    Dead lift 135x5, 225x5, 280x5x2 The lifts were pretty good, form was OK. I felt I could do another set but I ran out of time.
