    We actually did it before we got too drunk. That way nobody bitched about losing money, other people cheating, etc.

    7/24
    Bench 295 4x3, 225x12
    DB row 120x15
    Pullups bwx10, bw+20x5 (lats just told me to quit at this point)

    Felt pretty good today. Looking forward to squats Thurs. w/ 400 for 3x5

    7/26

    Squat 400 3x5 (FUCK YES, pretty hard tho. Maybe had another rep left in the tank on the last set. Maybe not. Where do I go from here next week? Guess I got some planning to do.)
    ABS 4 SETS

    --Pretty good day today. We are starting to get some solid people at the gym where I train. One guy hit a 320 push press today very easily. He also benched 455x2 this week and squats and pulls around 6 raw at 240 bw. Then there's my new protege. We'll call him "Little Kyle." Little Kyle weighs about 175 at 5'8" and just turned 18. He's built just fucking like me and has all the athleticism I had at an early age but without the years of idiocy. Will be interesting to see what he can achieve with my guidance.

    Nice work man. 3x5@400 is some pretty solid lifting.

    And deadlifting well over 400 at 18 and 175 is pretty damn strong. I started really lifting around 30. What I would give to go back and slap some sense into the 18-20 yr old me.

    Thanks, DRice.
    7/28
    Press 205x1, 155x5,5,8 (just getting in some work. Hadn't pressed in a while)
    I think that's all I did. I really don't remember. I just remember I was sweating way too much for having done so little work.

    7/31
    Deadlift up to 585x2 (PR, and felt easier than 580x2 did in May. This should put me around 620 on a stiff bar and 635 or so on one of those whippy ones they use at the meets I do)

    Power cleans 135 3x5 (just trying to losen up the back, which felt trashed after deadlifts. Any heavier assistance work was out of the question.)

    Bench 305 2x3 (wanted a 3rd set of 3 but it just wasn't there. Still a PR for 2 sets), then did 245x10

    Pullups bw+40 3x5

    --Damn good day today. Stoked about my deadlift.

    Haha- that would explain why you haven't posted a log in like 5 days.

    You have a beast ass deadlift man. I would love to be able to pull weight like that.

    Yeah, sometimes I don't get on a computer for a while. I don't own one, and I didn't own a tv until a year ago.

    You'll be pulling more than I can, probably sooner than later. You look to be a little more athletic than I am based on what I've seen from your videos and we have pretty similar levers.

    8/2

    Squat up to 405x5

    Press 190 3x3, 155x10

    Pullups 4x10

    --I decided to go to the gym, squat 405x5 today, and stop. This was for 2 reasons: (1) I just pulled 585x2 two days ago. Normally I would have another day or two of rest before I squat, but family obligations don't make that possible this week. To sum up this point, I was NOT recovered well enough to really squat. (2) I have a gimpy low back and left hip flexor right now, probably an artifact of the pulled hamstring I've been operating with the last month. Squats didn't feel good today, and I knew they wouldn't. Next week I will take 405 on fresh legs and see how many reps I can get (trying to leave one in the tank). Would like 6. Then I'll drop the weight to 355 or so and do 2-3 sets of 5 for some volume, kind of like I think I've seen Andy do on this site.

    So, I didn't get much of a squat workout in this week, but I still did enough probably to stave off weakness. On the bright side, I set a deadlift PR for 585x2 and successfully completed this deadlift training cycle without a miss (I only pull maxes off the floor at meets, so 2's are as heavy as I go in training). Presses also went well today. Looking forward to seeing how squats go next week on fresh legs.

    I was going to ask, but thought I would search your log first, haha. I'm interested.

    Basically it looks like this, Steve:

    Monday: Deadlifts. Heavy deadlifts every other week. I usually just pick a weight and go for a rep PR (NEVER using anything I can do for more than 6 reps or so. My deadlift plummets if I don't pull something 85% of my max or heavier every other week). This cycle I did something a little different. I picked a PR weight for 5 reps, then 2 weeks later hit a 4 rep PR, then 2 weeks later hit a 3 rep PR, then 2 weeks later hit a 2 rep PR. Now I will take 2-3 weeks away from deadlifts and start a new cycle w/ 5 reps 5 lbs over where I started the previous cycle. This plan got a little thrown off by a pulled hamstring this cycle, but essentially I hit the following lifts: 525x5, 545x4, 565x3, 585x2. Next cycle I prob will do 530x5, 550x4, 570x3, 590x2. For assistance after heavy pulls I do either snatch grip deadlifts or sumo deadlifts, working up to a heavy set of 3-5 reps (something like snatch grip pulls 225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 425x3, which gives me some volume). Every other week when I don't pull heavy, I do speed pulls w/ about 55-60% of my max plus 150 in band tension at the top for 6 sets of 2, followed by paused front squats (just pick a weight and work up to a rep PR). I feel like these help me at the bottom of the deadlift.

    Tuesday: Bench, I added about 20 lbs to my bench in 2 training cycles doing the following (although now I'm regressing): Week 1 6 sets of 3 (I just pick a weight I can do 1 set of 6-7 with), Week 2 5 sets of 3 w/ 10 lbs more, Week 3 4 sets of 3 w/ 10 lbs more than the previous week (start adding in a back off set or two of 8-10 reps this week for extra volume), Week 4 3 sets of 3 w/ 10 lbs more than the previous week plus back off set(s), Week 5 3-4 sets of 2 w/ 10 lbs more than the previous week plus back off sets, Week 6 2x2 w/ hopefully 10 lbs more than the previous week, Week 7 hit a 5-10 lb bench PR

    Thursday - Squats. I start a training cycle with a weight that I think I can do for 5,5,8-9 (started with 365x5,5,8 this cycle). The last rep of the last set should be difficult, but I should leave one really tough rep in the tank. I add five pounds a week, always shooting for a rep PR on the 3rd set with a given weight. Eventually I work my way down to 3 sets of 5 (ended up at 400 for 3x5 this cycle). This takes me to where I am now. I will be hitting a top set of 5, adding 5 lbs/week, then doing a few back off sets of 5 for some volume with a weight close to where I started the cycle. Once 5 reps gets too hard, I move to a heavy set of 3 and keep doing my back off sets for volume. Once 3 reps get too hard, I go to singles for a few weeks and keep doing my back off sets for volume. Once I hit a new max, I'll start the next cycle 10 lbs over where I began the previous cycle.

    Presses, I just do what I feel like. I haven't really been trying to progress them. But I ought to.
