    Congrats on the PRs, Wolf. Impressive how fast everything looked.

    Thanks Steve!

    For those of us mere mortals who don't yet possess the grinding capabilities of a superhuman, the 5th deadlift rep sure felt slow!

    Good work on that 560x5. I expect to see a 700 pull by the end of the year.

    Thanks Kyle. I train with a stiffer bar (B&R), and the fed uses a DL bar for their meets, so I think there's an outside chance I could get it at this July meet. When I pulled 615 at the meet in September, my best ever 5 was 520 and best recent 5 was 505. And it looked like I had another 10-15 lbs in me that day, too. I know it's not always a linear relationship with these things, but using that data, I'd guess I'm somewhere between 650-680 on a DL bar right now, if the stars are aligned right. 700 in 3 months from now is not out of the question.

    But I'm not going to force it if it's not there.

    What a gentleman.

    Also, this is exciting.

    I also train with a stiff bar (Ivanko) and use a DL bar at meets. My best set of 5 in training is 550x5 and my best meet single is 661. You look significantly stronger for a set of 5 than I am currently. I would expect something around 575x5 in training to be in the 700 meet ballpark, and you're not far off.

    Seems about right to me, considering all the factors that play into the performance on a meet day at this stage in training advancement.

    Rough day today. Felt fine all weekend but woke up this morning feeling tired, fatigued all over but especially my shoulders and traps, and a big bump in my usual spring allergy situation. My numbers were only slightly behind my planned work, but I just felt weak, tired, and lethargic. One of the trainers at the gym who I'm friendly with even commented, asking what's wrong with me today. Ah well, they can't all be great days.

    Press
    220x3x2
    Notes
    : Was supposed to be 220x5. When 135 felt heavy in warm-ups, I thought I might be in trouble. When 165 felt like 215, I knew I was. But I committed to taking 220 out anyway and doing my damnedest with it; failed the fourth rep, but that was actually better than I expected. Felt like I'd only get a double and got 3. Second set actually felt slightly better than the first.

    Bench Press
    315x5, 325x5x2, 315x5, 295x5
    Notes:
    Still some shoulder weakness; pretty sure I bridged my butt up for the last rep of set 2 at 325. But got some decent volume in.

    Weighted Chins
    BW+45 x 5 x3
    Notes
    : These were hard. I just didn't have my usual strength.

    Hammer Strength Plate Load Row
    180/side (4x45) x 11,11,12

    Cable Tricep Rope
    62.5x12x2

    Cable External Rotations
    7.5x15x2
    Per the best DPT in the country's recommendation

    I'm disappointed a bit, but I think I did the absolute best I could in the circumstances. Eating a lot today (it's a high carb day. And a high protein day. And a slightly higher than usual fat day, too.), and hoping to get a full night's sleep and get recovered.

    Perhaps Game Of Thrones, episode 2 season 4 was too upsetting?
