    Thursday 6/9/16

    squat:
    3x305
    3x350
    2x390 (miss)
    3x5x350

    rdl: 2x8x325

    I probably had enough in the tank to grind up the 3rd rep at 390 if the form had been good, but it got forward a bit and I couldn't get it back in the groove in time. The first 2 had better form & depth than last cycle. The backoffs were tough, but my form gradually improved; the last set was the most solid.

    Sunday 6/12/16

    press:
    5x173
    3x196
    0x219
    1x219 (p.r.)
    185: 5/5/4 (backoffs; hit the ceiling, literally, on the last set)

    weighted chins @ 32.5: 5/5/5/5/5

    It will be in the mid- to high-90s today, so we lifted in the morning. It went pretty well, that considered. I should stand a skosh wider on the press so that I don't hit the beams in the shed again.

    power-clean:
    3x135
    3x155
    3x175
    2x185
    3x0x205 (wheels keep on spinning 'round)

    deadlift:
    5x385
    3x440
    1x490
    0x500 (just missed; got it over the knees)

    rows: 2x8x290

    I think I've about had it with the power-cleans. They're fun, but at these weights my time would be better spent on something else. I have a trip coming and a week and a half off from the weights. When I get back I may make minor tweaks to the program or a major overhaul. I've been running 5/3/1 for over 2 years and gotten some decent gains out of it, but everything is stalling. I'm considering a run at HLM when I get back. We'll see.

    Thursday 6/16/16

    pin squats: 1x330/330/335 (5 to 10 above what I did last cycle; pin squat weights can and should go up)

    bench:
    5x248
    3x281
    1x315
    3x5x267

    My pin squat weights have been lighter than they should be. I'm starting to push them up.

    Sunday 6/19/16

    squats:
    5x325
    3x370
    1x415
    0x425 (miss p.r. attempt)
    3x5x350 backoff

    rdl: 2x8x325

    The 425 attempt was close: I got a bounce at the bottom, but didn't have the form quite dialed in enough to grind it up. Nerts.

    Tuesday 6/21/16

    --- transition day ---
    squat: 3x5x280 (80% of 350 backoffs)
    press: 3x5x185 (normal 5/3/1 backoff)
    chins: 10/10/10/10/10

    I'm about to go on vacation and will be starting HLM when I get back, after 3+ years on 5/3/1. Sunday was a heavy squat day, so it made sense to treat this as the light day and test out some weights. I used the 80% backoff numbers for the sets across and calculated the percentages from there. I also supersetted the first 3 chin sets with the squats, so there was a long gap between the 3rd and 4th chin sets. As a result, I got tens across for the first time.

    When I return and start up HLM I think I'll add an additional 5-10% deload to get a running start at it.
