    Bench Press 225x1x5, 1s pause
    Standing Rack Press 137x6x3
    Rows 150x10x3

    Unracking the bar for bench singles is more work than actually benching.

    3/16
    Squat 365x1, 1, 1, f, 1, 1
    Conv DL 365x6

    Failed the fourth squat cause I hit the safeties. Some days I can squat just at parallel and some days I'm hitting 3" below parallel. The weight moved pretty well though, considering warm ups felt like shit. Also used the 55 lb bar since there wasn't another available bar with center knurling. That crazy knurl on that thing beats up my hands and some how scrapes my back through my shirt.

    OHP 147x6
    Pause Squat 285x6x2, 2s
    Bench Press 185x6x4
    Chin bwx5x4, 3x7

    OHP felt junk, but I still managed to get all the reps. Squats felt like cardio. Squatting before benching was a bad idea, cause fatigue. Next time I'll make sure I bench first.

    3/20
    Bench Press 175x6x2, 2s pause
    Squat 315x6x3
    DE Sumo DL 315+60x1x8, chains, 90s rests

    scale says 164 lbs

    Tried a little narrower squat stance and I think the resulting increased forward lean fatigued my back a little more than I'm used to. Other than that, squats felt pretty good. I might still squatting a bit too deep maybe. Warmed up for SLDLs, but my back just felt ridiculously tight, so I figured I'd just do some speed pulls. Chains make it more fun. Also, context is important.

    Now as soon as the micro circuit lecture I'm currently sitting in and not paying attention to finishes, I'll be on spring break, which means more sleep, more recovery, and hopefully more gainz, at least for a week.

    3/21
    Tried some power cleans cause I had time
    Power Clean 95xsomexsome, 115xsome, 135xsome

    Every time I try power cleans I always regret it. Took me 20 minutes to get my wrist stretched enough to be able to rack the bar, obvious the session didn't go well. Racking the bar is painful even when I do it right.

    Bench Press 205x6, 1s pause
    OHP 145x3x5
    Rows 155x10x3

    Wrist sore cause previously attempted power cleans. Also, my traps were sore.

    3/23
    Squat 345x6
    Sumo DL 445x3, 1, 3
    Neutral Grip Chins bwx11, 7, 7, 6

    Trained in my garage since I'm on spring break. It was insanely hot. Squats went well though. Second set of deads I had to stop so I wouldn't throw up. On the last set I kind of hitched, which was weird, cause sumo. Also, I was surprised I even got the sets of 3, since I only have a stiff bar at home and the bar at school is an in between ish bar.

    3/25
    OHP 162x3
    Bench Press 200x3x6, tng
    OHP 90+50x5, monster mini bands
    Squat 310x3x3, 1s pause
    Neutral Grip Chins bwx12

    Trained in my garage again, but at like 9 pm, which is uncommon for me. My OHP is quite weak at the top, so maybe that's a triceps thing, since I don't do any direct triceps work. I'm considering trying OHP with bands for my volume presses if I can find a better way to set up the bands. Also, my belt is getting tight, so I guess that means I'm putting on weight.

    Bench Press 190x3x3, 2s pause
    Squat 335x3x5
    DE Sumo DL 315x1x7

    Trained at school gym since I had work and it fit my schedule better. Squats did not feel good. Apparently I was also squatting too deep, since I hit the safeties on the last rep of the third set. Suppose to do SLDLs again, but my back just felt a bit too fatigued from squatting, so I did some sumo pulls and those didn't feel that great either. Oh well.

    Bench Press 230x1x5, 1s pause
    OHP w/bands 85+40x6, 95+40x6x2
    Rows 160x8x3
    Curls 65x12, 45x18

    Don't know if I'll have time to lift tomorrow, so I did today. Benched two days in a row, but yesterday was light, so whatever. Threw some light bands on for overhead presses since I'm so weak at the top.

    3/30
    Squat 375x1, 390x1, 405x1
    Sumo DL 455x1, 475x1, 485x1
    Chin bwx12, 9, 6, 5, 5
    bw: 163.7 lbs

    Suppose to be heavy singles across on squats and deads today, but it ended up being a kind of impromptu max session. I think I almost threw up like 20 times in between sets while squatting today, but I didn't stop because I was determined. I'm also young and stupid. Well I didn't throw up, and I did hit a 405 single for squat. Oddly enough, I felt better while deadlifting.
