    squats felt good. Video of 2nd set will post later. Everything felt snappy....hard but not terrible. I think form is improving on squats. They seem to really be responding to 5x5s

    deviation from my programming today....mainly because according to my scheduled percentage for press and my lack of micro plates I would have been repeating last weeks weights. I also wanted to see if the increased volume was paying off yet. Its not yet I don't think for the press as far as pushing my 1rm up.

    press
    45x10
    65x5
    95x3
    115x1
    135x1
    145x1
    160x0
    160x0 fucker

    deadlift
    135x5
    225x3
    315x1
    365x1
    385x1
    405x1
    430x1 (PR) also double bodyweight fuck yeah! Pulled this off the floor this time fuck those pads. This rep was herkey jerky starting at the knees and kind of stuck for a second but I managed to grind it to lockout.

    no workouts till Monday. Get to move this weekend.

    Man, that's some heavy pulling! 2X BW is a mighty achievement. 200kg is next!

    So what I'm wondering is - are there any specific goals you are working towards?

    well...500 on the deadlift,405 squat and 315 bench and 225 press. Also I want to do a meet in may. These numbers are longinsh term goals possibly the squat I can get by the new year maybe the deadlift not sure. I could be way off base there. The other lifts are definetly long term.

    overall I lift for mental and physical well being and try unsuccessfuly to not get hung up on the numbers

    frustrating Friday fuckery

    squats
    275x5/5/2

    these felt like horseshit. Was supposed to do 5x5...yeah right. Going to try to rest up and eat this weekend and hit it hard back on schedule next week.

    what a demoralizing session. Everything felt off.

    I think based on where you are right now you need to continue a slow and steady intermediate program and stick with it for at least three months to know if it works - your current program, or TM if you are that butch, or 531, or 8s down to 3s (which I just started), or any of the other programs. Patience is the hardest part which I am struggling with also right now.
