    Squat
    45 lbs x 2 x 5 - Lumbar and right knee pain one set one, better on set two by controlling the descent better (was divebombing?)
    100 x 5
    150 x 3 - Both lumbar and knee joint pain resolved
    200 x 2
    225 x 2 - Slow, force knees out

    250 x 5 - Knees sliding backwards out of hole before hips rise on three through five
    225 x 5 - Really slow on rep four, dizzy after set
    225 x 5 - Nice on all reps, dizzy post-set

    Deadlift
    115 x 2 x 5
    170 x 3 - GET SET and get back flat
    225 x 2 - MUCH better
    255 x 2 - SET UP

    285 X 5 - Weak lockout on last rep

    Notes

    Inconsistency in sessions isn't abating on its own, on the upside the backtracking isn't bad - only five pounds on squats (2%) and nothing at all on deads after two weeks of very inconsistent gym time.

    I really debated going for 250 on squats but decided better after the last warm-up set. Something just wasn't settling right and I did okay. At 250 it definitely wouldn't be anywhere near as good on form.
    I definitely went for it on deads; in theory it was supposed to be volume day with squat ID, but I haven't done a deadlift ID since February 9th and it's LONG past time. It was good to see I didn't lose the weight, though I wasn't happy with rep five at all - the lockout was very weak.

    Seated OHP
    45 x 2 x 5 - Smooth and controlled
    45 x 5
    63.75 x 3
    85 x 2 - second rep right foot slid
    95 x 2 - damned near perfect

    105 x 5 - First rep eccentric while too far leaned back, second rep eccentric too far forward, foot slip third and fourth rep
    95 x 5 - Good!
    95 x 5 - Second rep leaned back a bit far

    Bench press
    45 x 2 x 5
    65 x 5
    95 x 3
    125 x 2
    140 x 2

    160 x 5 - Elbows wide third rep
    160 x 5 - Bar touched south of the sternum rep two
    160 x 5 - Hit right hook on unrack, tapped left hook on rep three, barely got it racked after five

    Notes
    Went in feeling really good despite poor sleep last night. I knew I had 105 SOHP before I started the first warm-up set with the bar, it was that certain.
    Bench was a mixed bag; as I got more tired form really suffered in the last set as my focus and tightness kind of fell apart. In spite of it, got all across the sets.

    Deadlift
    115 x 2 x 5
    175 x 3 - Nice and tight
    230 x 2
    260 x 2

    290 X 5 - Weak grip throughout; weak lockout on fifth rep

    Squat
    45 lbs x 2 x 5 - Herky-jerky
    90 x 5 - a little better
    135 x 3 - Good focus and slower descent helped the reps
    180 x 2 - Just ok
    220 x 2 - REALLY need focus!

    225 x 5 - A little wobbly; lots of crackling noises from both knees
    225 x 5 - Bad liftoff, reset. Decent set
    225 x 5

    Notes
    I really liked the bar speed on the deadlifts, but the grip was just shit throughout - bad enough to rechalk between reps three and four. I really needed to get tighter on the setup as well.
    The squats were just okay. Knees have been crackling a lot on work sets.

    Bench press
    45 x 2 x 5
    70 x 5
    107.5 x 3
    145 x 2 - right wrist twinge
    160 x 2 - nice speedy descent & controlled ascent

    180 x 4 - Nope, 5th wasn't happening
    162.5 x 5
    162.5 x 5

    Seated OHP
    45 x 2 x 5
    57.5 x 4
    76.25 x 2 - Sloppy; get braced for reps
    86.25 x 2 - Solid!

    97.5 x 5 - Banged right hook on rerack
    97.5 x 5 - Little right foot slide on rep five
    97.5 x 5

    Notes
    The fourth top set rep was just sloppy and slow enough I didn't think I had the fifth. Acceptable loss, considering I haven't done an ID bench since February 11th.
    Press was good, if a little slow on the last set. I'm hoping to get 110 next time on press ID, but 107.5 is more likely.

    Deadlift
    115 x 2 x 5
    175 x 3 - Tight, sloid, and smooth
    230 x 2 - Not so smooth, get set up
    260 x 2 - Decent setup, left foot cramp after set

    290 X 2 - third rep hard stall

    Notes
    Lots of time off, wasn't thrilled about that part. Figured I'd come back to the toughest lift, and cranked out two where it was five before. I'll take it.
    The reps themselves were good, just that third wasn't going.

    Default One foot in front of the other...

    Squat
    45 lbs x 10 - significant lumbar achiness, index fingers only can get to the rings
    95 x 5 - ibid.
    145 x 3 - ibid
    185 x 2 - ibid
    205 x 2 - slow and tight, no lumbar ache, settled between middle and ring fingers on the rings.

    225 x 5 - ibid
    225 x 5 - not tight enough
    225 x 5 - banged left hook on rerack

    Notes
    I just don't seem to have it in me anymore. Got some time today and set in three sets of five without a lot of enthusiasm. I was going to go for 245 x 5 to see where it landed but all the lumbar achiness on most of the warm up sets warmed me off that idea so rolled it back to near the same volume day I'd do on a 245lb ID week.

    All three sets playlist is here.

    135 x 2 - right wrist twinge
    150 x 2 - ibid.

    170 x 5

    Notes

    Just another day. Considered cranking it to 175 but backed off.

    I've got a LOT of quad DOMS from squats yesterday; did a round of 45lb front squats to see if I could.

    Deadlift
    115 x 2 x 5
    175 x 3 -
    230 x 2 - Grip the bar tighter
    260 x 2 - And and push the floor

    290 X 4 - fifth rep came up uneven, bailed it

    Notes
    SO close to getting that last rep, but the bar tilted as the left side rose faster than the right and I dumped it. I can't really complain that two deadlift sessions in less than a week have me jsut about back to where I started before this abortion of a month's illnesses took hold.

    45 x 10
    95 x 5 - came forward on 5th rep
    145 x 3
    190 x 2 - good bar speed
    215 x 2

    240 x 5 - felt pancaked
    225 x 5 - stance a bit too wide
    225 x 5 - ibid; adjusted between rep 1 and 2

    Notes

    Took BCAAs immediately beforehand with 20g L-Glutamine and was ready to kill it.

    Seated OHP
    45 x 10 - lots of foot slippage, drive ball of foot into the platform
    65 x 4
    85 x 2

    95 x 5
    95 x 5
    95 x 5

    Notes


    The press always suffers the most from any break in the schedule and this was no different. I was going to try to rip up 105 with backoffs but the 95 warm=up let me know that wasn't going to happen - the bar speed was too slow off the delts. So, 3x5 it was.

    Not the worst start to the morning. SWMBO wanted to get up earlier for her stuff, I used the time to do my stuff. BCAA, L-Glutamine, and 200mg caffeine for the charge-up, coffee, OJ, and 60g+ protein afterwards..
