    Chops had some complications yesterday from his Tuesday surgery, so my planned leisurely afternoon training slot turned into a rushed "get it in before the gym closes" situation on Wednesday night.

    Press: 4" belt
    5s @: 95, 135, 175, 205, 225.
    Then 245x1.
    Notes: 225x5 was really hard. Didn't wear wrist wraps but that's not really why. A little part of my brain was still really nervous about my back, and that held me back some. I still got the rep but it was slooooow. 245 was fine.

    Deadlift
    135x5 from 4 inches up
    135x5x2 from the floor!!!
    DB Bench: Neutral Grip
    80x8x3
    Notes: Deadlifts from the floor! Felt fine, a nice mental boost on a rough day. Only 135 but that's where you start. DB bench was easy.

    He wants to be at 11 so bad!

    He'll be OK, but he re-opened the surgical site and had to get re-bandaged up, this time with instructions to keep the bandage and cone on for the entire 2.5 weeks till the stitches come out. Sad times for the Chopper.

    Back continues to feel better, still isn't fully back to normal.

    Bench
    KG+1lb: 150x5, 165x4, 150x5, 135x5
    Notes: 165 was planned for 5 but I didn't rest long enough and wussed out on the last rep because I got nervous re: my back, about the hard arch and leg drive I was doing. If I'd rested 1.5-2 more minutes it probably would've been fine. Just a mental lapse, it was still moving alright.

    165kg x4 bench set on IG

    Deadlift - all from the floor
    135x5, 185x5x2 - all good in the hood.
    DB Standing Arnold Press
    50x10, 60x8x3

    Lat Pulldown - Wide neutral grip
    5x6: 1 set warmup, 4 sets work
    BW Squats
    5x5

    Tricep Rope - LTE style
    2x12

    C2 Erg (Airdyne Bike was broken)
    25/45 x9: 2 warmup, then 6 at ~1:50, final one at ~1:45.
    Notes: Pretty easy. I was nervous at first that my back wasn't ready for the erg and I'd have to call it off, but it felt OK. That said, I was still too nervous to really push it so these weren't that fast and didn't get my heart rate up too much. But glad my back tolerated them, and better than nothing.

    Bench
    343x5, 365x5, 332x5, 310x5
    Notes: I wanted to do 370x5 or the closest kilo+1lb equivalent but my bench is feeling weak and moving slow. Which is weird cause it was going great before my back snap, and I basically suspended the cut during that time (BW held at 275-278 range) till the last few days when I resumed it (still eating ~3900 cals on training days and ~3500 the other 4 days so not exactly a drastic cut or deficit), so not sure why coming back up is proving so difficult. But at least I did get the 365x5 which I only got 4 of on Friday. I'll start switching down reps on Friday's benching now.

    Deadlift
    135x5, 225x5x2
    Notes: Back felt meh during and right after, but does feel better now a few hours later.

    DB Standing Press
    50x10, 60x10x3
    Leg Press
    245x8, 335x8x3

    Chins and Pullups
    35 total, 20 and 15 respectively, spread over many small sets of 2-4 reps done between other stuff.

    DB Curls
    40x8, 45x8, then 20x12 hammer curls with slightly slow eccentric.

    AirDyne
    20/60x7 after a couple warm-up rounds. Pushing almost as hard as before I got hurt. Which still wasn't *that* hard but at least I'm about back to that point.

    Trained with Troup-a-loop today, nice to have him visiting.

    Press 1.0: 4" belt
    200x5x3
    Notes: I'm still nervous about my back doing a press 2.0 reach so doing 1.0s for now. And feeling weak AF for some reason.

    Deadlift
    KG: 60x5x2, 90x5, 110x5, 120x5
    Cable Row
    5x10
    Notes: DLs once again felt not so great during and right after, but my back feels better a few hours later than it did before.

    Totally forget bench assistance womp womp, thaks for distracting me, PETE.

    Tricep Rope
    3x12

    AirDyne
    25/75 x8 - about back up to previous intensity. Still a long way to go to where I want to be.

    At WFAC this morning.

    Bench: 3" belt
    375x3x3 @9, 8, 8.5
    275x10 backoff
    Notes: First set I looped the last rep badly. Second set I GMFST and did it reasonably well, though still a little harder and slower than it should have been. Last set was OK but was a little fatigued by then.

    Deadlift
    135x5, 225x5, 275x5
    Notes: Wanted 315 but these weren't feeling great on my back, which I am still quite worried and cautious about. Went with the small jump, at least it's still 10 lbs more than Wednesday.

    Seated Arnold Press
    55x8, 64x8, 73x8,12,10 (I think?)
    Notes: Did this silly video based on my last set. We had done it the previous set of 12, but Pete's alarm went off in the middle and auto-stopped recording so we had to do it again. Extra set = extra gains, amirite?

    Chins and Pullups
    37 total, 22 chins and 15 pull-ups mostly in sets of 4-5 between other stuff.

    DB Curls
    42x8, 48x8, courtesy of the WFAC weirdly weighted DBs.

    Default Monday, 6/10

    Nighttime lift with Pete, after driving back from the Falls. Tired AF.

    Bench
    KG+1lb: 130x5, 140x5, 147.5x5, 140x5

    Deadlift
    KG+1lb: 70x5, 100x5, 125x5, 135x5
    Notes: Back still feels weak, unstable, and on the cusp of pain during these so I'm keeping the jumps smaller than I'd like.

    DB 1-Arm Standing Press
    60x8x4
    Lat Pulldown
    5x10

    DB Curls
    2x12, 10
