    Forgot to log yesterday. Doing full body 3x this week before moving back to split next week.

    Squat: Belt and sleeves
    135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 405x2, 435x1
    Notes: Squat moved well, back felt ok, so I'm happy. I was set to do 460x5 before I tweaked my back a month ago, which would've been the most I've done for a set of 5 since 2016. So working back up to that is my first goal. The month of squatting lost to this back tweak may mean 600 in 2020 is now too much of a stretch, but I haven't given up yet. I just have to be realistic in my expectations. It may be possible but I can't force it.

    Press
    95x5, 135x5, 175x5, 205x5, 225x3, 245x1, 185x5
    Notes: No belt or wraps here, these were surprisingly easier than I expected.

    Deadlift: 3" belt
    405x5, 455x1
    Notes: EZPZ. My left pec was complaining some during the 405 set, but the pulls themselves were smooth.

    Missed a couple workouts and shortened the rest significantly, as my dog had to have a leg amputated unexpectedly. All the vet appointments leading up to that and taking care of him right afterwards - plus my mental mindset going from everything being fine to finding out he had cancer (he's only 5), to dealing with a full leg amputation, all in the span of 9 days - was a lot to handle. So I skipped a workout or two, and am shortening the others now so as not to leave him alone for long. Thankfully he's handling it well and is recovering as well as can be expected.

    I'm not gonna back-log everything, but I managed Mon/Thurs/Sat last week, and will be back to Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri this week, albeit in shorter form.

    Since my last logging, I've worked up (not all on the same day) to a squat of 425x2 and 455x1, a press of 290x1 and 225x10 (matching my all time 10 rep PR from Dec, 2018), a bench of 385x5 and 405x1, a block pull of 515x1 from 6", and done some chins and lat pulldowns.

    Will resume normal logging today.

    Sorry about your dog.... we recently had a dog with bone cancer too, but older and terminal. It sucks for sure.

    Go stab a bolsa ball. You’ll regret it but those 2 seconds will be glorious.

    It's hard to lose our best friends, and maybe even harder to see them suffer. What's a bolsa ball?

    It got COLD overnight here, so trained in 40 degree weather all the sudden.

    Squat
    455x5 @7.5, 405x5 - belt + sleeves
    365x5 - sleeves only
    Notes: 455 didn't feel particularly awesome but moved well, so I was very happy with it. I was originally supposed to do this a month ago, on 9/29, but the back tweak from overshooting the safety bar front squats on 9/22 set me back. This is the most I've done for a set of 5 since 2016, and it popped, so I'm pleased. Backoff sets made my right erector burn, but from fatigue, not injury. That's the side that gets a little overworked due to a mild scoliosis that is amplified by heavy weights.

    Deadlift
    455x3, 495x1, 525x1 @8
    Notes: My left pec is still not super pleased with the lockout position, and my triceps and lats were also reminding me of all the work they did yesterday - otherwise I would've rated the 525 set @6. From a pure deadlift perspective it was easy, but I'm not sure I could've physically held the bar with my upper body (not due to grip, but lat and tricep cramps incoming and left pec bordering on straining at lockout). Good thing I only needed to do 1.
