    HLM Week 12 SQ (H) + DL (M) Baker 3-week squat rotation (Cycle 2, Week 1)

    Squat (2.1 H):
    - 292.5x5 (85% of 345)
    - 257.5 3x6 (75% of 345). 6 min rest
    DL - 275 3x5 (80% of 345). 3 min rest
    Pendlay Rows 150 3x8 (90s rest)
    wrist roller

    Just realized today that I've probably had a cold over the last week. I though it was unusually bad allergies, but it lasted 6 days. That would probably explain the bad sleep and fatigue. Man-colds used to knock me out, but since putting on a bunch of weight I don't catch them as often and they don't seem to affect me as bad.

    Squat - Form was ok. Should probably see Austin Baraki again sometime. I somehow manage to push the bar up my back when I'm at the bottom of the squat. Had no energy after squatting, and almost called it a day.
    Deadlift - Nothing to report

    Got my blood work results back, somehow my testosterone count has gone down, even though my dosage has gone up. I was wondering if something was going on, because my energy levels have been horrible the last couple months.

    09-2016 239 ng/dl on 40 mg/week
    12-2016 642 ng/dl on 60 mg/week
    06-2017 340 ng/dl on 80 mg/week

    I wasn't lifting heavy in December of last year, and I've been pushing my limits regularly the last couple months. So I'm guessing the hard training has something to do with the decrease in test. levels. Doctor approved me to 100 mg/week, but said he won't go higher than that in the future.

    Cholesterol results were interesting.

    06-2016
    - 185lb
    - Cholesterol 189
    - Triglycerides 80
    - HDL 44
    - LDL 129

    06-2017
    - 203lb
    - 4600 cals/day (including candy, ice cream, brownies, etc)
    - Cholesterol 159
    - Triglycerides 131
    - HDL 36 (I stopped taking fish oil/omega 3 supplements)
    - LDL 97

    My bad cholesterol and total cholesterol somehow went down, despite all the extra food and less than "healthy" eating. Need to start taking omega 3 supplements again though.

    HLM Week 12 DL (H) + SQ (M)

    DL (H) - 345x5@RPE 8 (x5 PR!)
    SQ (M) - 245 3x6 (5 min rest)
    Pendlay Rows - 155 3x8 (90s rest)

    Lifted at 4:30pm. Lower back felt a bit fatigued/sore/tight, but I tried to just ignore it.

    DL - This week felt waaaay better than last week. Every single rep went up fast, with almost no time between reps. RPE 8, or less. Had to do the math again on all the plates just to make sure the bar was loaded correctly. Weird how my heavy deadlift session fluctuates so much week to week. In theory, if I can keep adding 5lb every week to my x5 heavy day, I'll have a estimated 1RM of 495 in just 16 weeks. Be funny if I hit a 500lb deadlift before a 400lb squat.
    SQ - Bleh. After 3 reps my heart rate gets up and I feel awful. Hot garage doesn't help with that.
    P. Rows - Might be in my head, but I think even with these lite weights my lower back is getting somewhat stronger.

    All I can hear in my head right now is Ronnie Coleman saying, "light weight!"
