    From yesterday

    BW:
    108.9kg

    Weight (kg) x Sets x Reps

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    55 x 1 x 3
    67.5 x 1 x 3
    80 x 1 x 2
    92.5 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt good. I noticed that my knees were slightly sliding forward on reps 4 and 5 of my 1st and 2nd set (especially on rep 5 of my 2nd set). My knees had a slight dull pain while resting between sets 1 and 2 and between sets 2 and 3. I'm assuming this is due to the knee slide and this will probably get worse if I dont fix the knee slide. I did focus on keeping my knees in place for set 3 and my knees felt pretty ok after that set.

    Press:
    20 x 2 x 5
    27.5 x 1 x 3
    35 x 1 x 3
    40 x 1 x 2
    47.5 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt good.

    Deadlift:
    60 x 1 x 5
    80 x 1 x 3
    95 x 1 x 3
    107.5 x 1 x 2
    122.5 x 1 x 5

    Form notes -> my lower back was fried after my 2nd set. It felt like I had a severe "pump" in my lower back (similar to what the bros feel when they train their biceps). I may have been slightly hyperextending my lower back on my warm ups which could have contributed to the tightness. I just took a longer rest in between sets to give my back a chance to relax and it seemed to do the trick. In terms of my work set, reps 1,2 and 3 felt good. On the 4th rep, I stupidly tried using a different cue in my head which prevented me from fully setting my lower back. My 5th felt good. My lower back is feeling very slightly stiff this morning. After Friday, I'll start alternating deads with DB rows so that should give my lower back a better rest.

    Single arm DB rows:
    15 x 1 x 5
    25 x 1 x 3
    30 x 1 x 3
    35 x 1 x 2
    40 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> my lower back was fried after deadlifts so I had to take my time with my warm ups. Working sets felt good. My shoulders feel really good this morning. I have a bit of DOMS in my upper back (since this was the first time in a while that I did a full rowing workout). I'll start alternating between rows and deads next week.

    Next week:
    I'll be hitting 2 PRs on HBBS so I'm excited about that.
    I'll start alternating between deadlifts and single arm dumbbell rows and do chins after deadlifts (I'll add in cleans eventually, I just want to keep my shoulders healthy).
    I'm starting to microload on bench.
    I'm upping my calories to at least 6000 cals 5 times per week with at least 5000 cals 2 times per week. My first cheat meal is a large pizza on Thursday evening.

    I should clarify that I weigh myself first thing in the morning after I go to the bathroom and take a shower.

    I'll be posting progress updates every 2nd Thursday so as to keep my compliance and motivation in check.

    HBBS: 75kg -> 92.5kg (+17.5kg)
    Press: 42.5kg -> 47.5kg (+5kg)
    Bench: 77.5kg -> 82.5kg (+5kg)

    Note -> I had a pizza yesterday (around 5500 cals for the day) which had 20g of salt. Considering I've only been having 1-2g of salt per day, I'm assuming the pizza led to a big increase in water retention which increased my BW.

    Weight (kg) x Sets x Reps

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    55 x 1 x 3
    67.5 x 1 x 3
    80 x 1 x 2
    95 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt good. Didnt notice any knee slide and had no knee pain after the sets. On my last 2 sets, I really focused on getting a good bounce out of the hole, but I dont know if I was relaxing in the hole as I had no video. Will check on Sunday.

    Bench:
    20 x 1 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    47.5 x 1 x 3
    62.5 x 1 x 3
    72.5 x 1 x 2
    83 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> started microloading. The weight flew up, felt very easy. In fact, it was my easiest benching session since I restarted LP.

    Deadlift:
    60 x 1 x 5
    80 x 1 x 3
    95 x 1 x 3
    107.5 x 1 x 2
    125 x 1 x 5

    Form notes -> felt good overall. My 3rd rep felt a bit sloppy. My 5th felt really good, however.

    Chins:
    BW x 2 x 6.5
    BW x 1 x 6

    Form notes -> felt very difficult with no form breakdown. I don't know if it was due to being fatigued from the other 3 exercises, due to training late at night, having a bad night sleep or the increase in BW.


    I'm pretty pissed off as the floor in my gym is slanted which is only properly noticeable for deadlifts, but is mentally throwing me off for squats (the weight is light now, I'll see how I feel in a few weeks). I went to view other gyms this past week and their floors are also slanted which is annoying.
    I ordered a larger belt for myself back in February which I was told would take 2-6 weeks. I got no call/text so after 6 weeks, I went in to ask if it came in. It didnt (of course) but they said they would make sure it was in soon. I forgot about the belt for a few weeks when I wasn't taking my training seriously due to study so I forgot about the belt. Didn't get any text/call. I went in yesterday to see if they had it and it didnt come in. They said they would reorder it. I'm pretty fucking annoyed at this point.

    I'm a little bit concerned about the weight gain. From January to April, I was consistently 108-110kg (bar a 2 week period where I went down to 105kg). Maybe my body just got re-accustomed (if that's even a word), to the high calorie diet and responded by getting me back up to my usual BW? I'm assuming that's bullshit, however.

    Weight (kg) x Sets x Reps

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    52.5 x 1 x 3
    67.5 x 1 x 3
    82.5 x 1 x 2
    ***97.5 x 3 x 5*** PR

    Form notes -> felt good. On my last rep of set 1 and 2, the bar got too far in front of my mid foot coming out of the hole which was annoying. Other than that, I was really happy. This was the weight about 3 years ago where I realised the extent of my lower back injury. My back was in serious pain after the first 4 reps and I had to stop lifting immediately after that set. This morning, my back was pretty sore (this happens randomly - dont know what sets it off). Mentally, it feels great that after squatting this weight, my back feels 100 times better than this morning, considering how much agony my back was in 3 years ago.

    Press:
    20 x 2 x 5
    27.5 x 1 x 3
    35 x 1 x 3
    42.5 x 1 x 2
    50 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt really good. One or 2 reps were a little bit slow, but other than that, I felt pretty strong. It felt easier than 47.5kg. My best press was 56kg x 3 x 5 back in February so I've still got a long way to go to get there, but I'm feeling pretty happy with press atm. I'll start microloading for press.

    Single arm dumbbell rows:
    15 x 1 x 5
    25 x 1 x 5
    30 x 1 x 3
    37.5 x 1 x 2
    42.5 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt easy
