    4/15
    OHP 152x4
    Pause Squat 300x3x3, 2s
    Bench Press 195x6x4, tng
    Weighted Chin 37.5x6x3
    Curls 50x20, 14

    Bw: 165 lbs

    Press just felt really bad today and I think I misgrooved pretty much every rep. I'll retry that weight for 6 reps next time. Doing the pause squats before bench just makes me feel fatigued all over, but it's more time efficient since I'm already in the rack.

    4/17
    Bench Press 180x6x2, 1s pause
    Squat 325x6x3
    SLDL 305x6x2

    One of those junker feeling sessions. I haven't been sleeping as much as I should be, I hardly ate between waking up and lifting, and the air conditioner was broken. I'm pretty sure my 3 sets of squats had me sweating more than the people running on the track. I've been trying to hook grip my sldls, but I have a hard time getting a good grip with my right hand since my right thumb is larger (bowling).

    4/19
    Bench Press 215x5(f)
    OHP w/bands 112+40x3x5
    DE Squat 275+idk how much band tension x3x3
    Chin bwx6x4, x3x7 (45)

    I think I could have maybe got the last rep of bench. Spotter (my dad) picked up the bar after I had been grinding the rep for about 6 seconds. Oh well. Did some squats just to keep up the 3x/week frequency because I'm moving my monday session to tuesday for this week.

    4/21
    Squat 365x5
    Sumo DL 465x4
    Conv DL 365x7

    I walked in the rain for 25 minutes to get to the gym. I had to wring out my shirt when I got there. And it was like 800 pm, which is later than I usually train.

    Squats didn't feel that great. I was suppose to get 6 reps, but I stopped after the 5th. Deadlifts went well though, I was only suppose to go for 3, but I felt good so I went for another. I tried getting my back a little straighter at the beginning of the pull and I think it helped. My conventional deadlift still sucks. Maybe it'd get better if I did it more.

    4/22
    OHP 155x1, 175x1
    Bench Press 210x3x6, tng
    Conv Bouncelift 165x50, 1 min

    Decided to hit a heavy single for OHP, because I felt like it.

    Overhead Press 175x1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRj-CjrbhVc


    My school gym has a contest thing this week, max reps in 1 minute with a specified percentage of bodyweight. Each day is a different exercise. Today was deadlifts with 1xbodyweight. So cardio. I got 50, but last I heard so did 3 other guys. Also, if they're going to give out money as an award, they need to get their rules straight. One of my friends said they said no sumo, one said they said no belt, but sumo was okay, and I was told it had to be conventional and no supportive equipment. Oh well, I'm probably going to do the squat challenge on Friday anyways.

    4/24
    I barely even did any actual training today

    Bench Press 195x3x3, 1s pause
    Squat 165x38 in 1 min
    FeellikeI'mgoingtodiexamrap
    Lieonthefloorx30min

    I was going to do my squat working sets first, but I couldn't find a bar with middle knurling that was available. I think they're slowly going extinct in my gym, which is really not good. Also I was in a rush to get back to work so I just did the squat challenge, which was bw for amrap in 1 min. Worse idea ever. I think I gave myself another exertion headache. I was fine after the deadlift one on Wednesday, but squats are different of course.

    The last, and first, time I had an exertion headache was December of 2013. From what I remember it was worse than this one. That time it was from squatting ~185x8xsome, but on that occasion I tried pushing through it a little, which was obviously a bad idea.

    The plan is to take the whole next week off, which isn't totally bad since school and work are very busy, and then hit some light upper body the following week. I might hold off lower body even longer. I hate the idea of losing training time, but I'd hate for this to come back or get even worse.

    5/1
    Power Clean 95x2x4, 115x2, 135x1x5, 155x1, 165x1, 175x1
    Bench Press 175x2, 185x2x9
    Band Curls x15x3

    Went to the doctor's and he's going to send me to the neurologist for an MRI. Meanwhile I'm just going to train and do whatever doesn't make my head hurt.

    I think that as long as I'm not under tension for a long time my head is fine, hence the power cleans and low rep sets of bench. I've been working on my wrist flexibility, so I can kind of rack a clean, but it still hurts if I catch it poorly. I've also never power cleaned above 155 before, so that's a PR, which is pretty good considering I've only power cleaned a couple of reps one other time this year. I'm kind of scared to squat, so I'll have to see about that, I'll probably end up deadlifting before I squat.

    5/3
    Bench Press 195x2, 205x2, 215x2, 225x2
    PC 95xsome technique work
    Conv DL 345x2x3, beltless
    OHP 125x3x5, beltless

    Just kind of doing whatever I feel like for low reps. I can deadlift, so that's a good thing, although 345 isn't too heavy.

    5/5
    OHP 135x2, 145x2, 155x2, beltless
    Bench Press 205x2x6
    Front Squat 185x2, 225x2

    Waited 30 minutes for none of the four platforms to become available, had to leave for class, went back after class

    Power Clean 95, 135xtechnique work, 155x1x2, 165x1x5
    Sumo DL 405x1x3, beltless

    I should probably structure my workouts somehow, although I'm not sure when I'm going to go back to my regular routine, as I'm kind of afraid to do higher reps at the moment.

    starting strength coach development program
    5/7
    Bench Press 215x3, 185x2, 190x2x9
    Squat 45x2, 135x3x2, 185x2, 225x2, 265x2, 295x2x4, beltless, sleeveless

    I felt a little bit of headache coming on after the top bench set, but it went mostly away and didn't get worse so I continued. Squatted a little, didn't go very heavy. I'm happy I was able to squat though. Didn't do power cleans cause I think I messed up my wrist a little from the power cleans the other day.
