    1285 at 220 would be pretty solid - 65lbs more than your March total, correct? See if you can push that to 1300. A nice round number, you'll feel good about it. 5 more lbs in each lift is all you need.

    You mentioned switching to "5/3/1 style" programming - is it your own concoction based on 5/3/1?
    Wolf,

    Thanks for the comments. When I look at the numbers like that 1300 seems much more attainable. The "5/3/1 style" I am referring to is basically Wendler's 5/3/1 for PL. I have not made any changes to the basic template other than using either the standard 4 day or 2 day version based on my work schedule for the week. I like the flexibility it affords me at the moment while still allowing me to consistently hit some heavier singles to prepare for the meet.

    Thanks for checking out my log,

    John

    Thanks Oldster,

    I prefer simplicity to just about everything else, I hate high reps and tons of assistance stuff so hopefully this approach works for me.

    Thanks for checking out my log,

    Also, I filmed one of my girlfriend's work sets. She is running the SSLP 2x/week:

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Tues 10/2

    Pretty bad day today. I usually train after I get out of work at around 9pm. However, because my upcoming meet begins at 9am, I decided to train early today since I had the opportunity. It was basically a disaster. The weights felt very heavy and I did not hit my deadlift or press numbers that I had planned. On top of that I tweaked my back stubbornly trying to deadlift my goal of 495 even though I knew I was feeling a little off.

    Power Clean, worked up to 210x3, only thing that still felt easy today
    Deadlift, worked up to 455x1, missed 495
    Press, worked up to 185x1, missed 205, still not comfortable with the 3rd edition press style

    Hopefully I can regroup for my squats later in the week.

    Sat 10/6

    In my previous post I mentioned tweaking my back while deadlifting on Tuesday. Unfortunately it has turned out to be a little more serious than a tweak and has been bothering me constantly since then. My next meet is in five weeks and this injury is not going to make it any easier to accomplish my goals. Saturday was the first day I felt comfortable enough to get back in the gym and attempt to get under a bar.

    Squats - 45x5x3, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5x3
    These were pretty uncomfortable. I had pain during all my sets both at the top and throughout the descent. Not where I want to be right now but I am going to just train through it and get as strong as I can over the next five weeks.

    Bench - 45x5x2, 135x5, 185x5, 205x1, 225x5x3
    Felt ok. Weight was not a problem and the back did not factor into the sets at all.

    Deadlift - 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x5, 365x5
    Was not planning on going up to 365 but these felt better than I expected. I just concentrated on staying as tight as possible throughout the sets. Again, not where I want to be right now but I will take it and continue to move forward.

    Mon 10/8

    Squat - 45x5x2, 135x5, 185x5, 225x3, 275x5x3
    A little more comfortable than my last workout but still aware that my back is not 100%.
    Press - 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 155x5x3
    Best the 3rd edition press style has felt so far.
    Chins - BWx12, 8, 8

    Overall pretty happy with this.

    Weds 10/10

    Squat - 45x5x3, 135x5, 185x3, 225x2, 275x2, 315x5x3
    Bench - 45x5, 135x5, 185x3, 205x1, 230x5x3
    Deadlifts - 185x3, 225x2, 275x1, 315x1, 375x5

    No problems with any of my lifts tonight. I am still pretty conscious of my back but I am focusing on staying tight and trying to keep everything moving back up in the right direction.

    Fri 10/12

    Squat - 45x5x2, 135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 275x3, 295x1, 320x5x3
    Press - 45x5, 95x5, 135x2, 160x5x3
    Chins - BWx5, BW+25lbsx5x3

    Felt much better today in general. I am relieved that my stupidity did not lead to a more serious injury and my training was only derailed temporarily. Hopefully I can learn from my mistakes, make some progress, and have a good meet in a few weeks. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Glad to see you've made a strong comeback from the tweak and it didn't mess with your training for too long. You've still got a month to get ready for that meet and nail 1300.

    Thanks Wolf!

    I will do my best. I am happy to see you are still grinding out your LP, I look forward to seeing your continued progress.
