    Left shoulder was sore enough to repeatedly wake me up from sleep last night. Yet it still has no real pain in any part of range of movement when I move it without any weight. Hopefully just some tendonitis that will graudually subside by reducing benching and pressing to only 1 day per week.

    Squats @ 430 lbs-3,3,3,3,2,2 Rpe 9. Rest time were around 5 minutes per set because I was spotting my daughter on bench. I did video the 5th set to make sure I was hitting depth and it certainly looked like it.

    Deadlifts @ 445 lbs-3,3,3,3,2,2 Rpe 9 on last set. Set/3 minutes. Some of the sets were tougher but when I focused on better set up it wasn't too bad.

    Bench, paused @ 335 lbs-10 singles. Single/2 minutes. Rpe 9ish. Some left shoulder achiness but not sharp pain.
    Bench @ 225 lbs-15.
    Press @ 155 lbs-5,5,5 Rpe 8.5. No shoulder pain. I intentionally did these slowly so I could keep a steady bar path that didn't hurt my shoulder. Hopefully, I will continue to recover on the shoulder issue by only doing press and bench only 1 time a week.

    Squats @ 430 lbs-3,3,3,3,3,2 Rpe 9.. Set/4 minutes for first 3 sets then about 5 min/set. This was kind of a grind. Just couldn't get them consistent for some reason. Very tiring. Also had preeet good right forearm tendonitis pain, which I haven't had from squatting in a long time.

    Bodywt 232- I'm losing some weight which is not a good thing as I was trying to push it up to around 245. Really need to eat more.
    Deadlifts @ 445 lbs-3,3,3,3,3,2 3-4 min/set Rpe 9. Tried a higher belt position that I thinks help form a bit by keeping weight over middle of foot but is more tiring.

    Bench, paused @ 345 lbs-4 singles and a double. Rpe 8.5. Rest periods were all over due to talking. Shoulder just a bit achey. Maybe not 100% still but much better.
    Bench @ 225 lbs-25. Rpe 10.

    Press @ 175 lbs-5,5,5 Shoulder achey but no sharp pain. I will go one more week with just the single bench/press day and then I'll see if I can add a second day per week.

    Squats @ 430 lbs-3,3,3,3,3,3 4 min/set. Rpe 9.5. This whole session was just miserable. Although I could meet my rep goals, it just felt heavy and exhausting.

    I fogot to add that I had really bad right elbow tendonitis while warming up. Sharp enough pain that I wasn't sure I'd be able to get through my squats. I put on a neoprene elbow sleeve and that helped enough to get through it, but i've got some contuing tendon pain today, the day after. Not great to have to deal with elbow tendonitis again.

    Deadlifts @ 445 lbs-4,4,4,4,4,4 Rpe 8.5. About 4 minutes per set.

    Bench, paused @ 345 lbs-7 singles. 2 minutes/single
    Bench @ 225 lbs-15. Left shoulder a bit achey but not too bad

    Press @ 185 lbs-5,5,5 Rpe 9.25
    Press @ 135 lbs-10 A little backoff set.

    Although my left shoulder still isn'y 100%, it feels pretty good so I'm going to transition to 2 bench/press sessions per week. I'll also move to singles and a backoff set on press. I might start at 200 or 205 lbs for the singles and keep the backoff at 135 lbs.

    Squats @ 435 lbs-3,2,2,2,2,2 Rep 9ish. Rest periods were all over due to talking with different people. My right elbow tendonitis continues to act up which affects the bar placement on my back and reduces my aggressiveness under the bar. The good news is that my left shoulder seems mostly healed up, or at least less noticeable than the elbow pain.

    Bench paused @ 345 lbs-8 singles. Ok.
    Bench @ 225-20.

    Press @ 205 singles-6 singles. Very tough. Barely got several up. Rpe 10. Left shoulder a bit sore.
    Press @ 135 lbs-10.


    Sept 23, 2017
    Deadlifts @ 455 lbs-3,2,2,2,2,2 Rpe 9ish, maybe a bit easier. 1st set was probably an RPE 7-8. Rest times all over the place though due to talking.

    Bench, paused @ 345 lbs-9 singles. Felt pretty good. Rpe 8.5.
    Bench @ 225 lbs-20. Not bad.

    Press @ 205 lbs-7 singles. Rpe 9.5 but better than last press session. Left shoulder a little achey though.
    Skipped press back off to let shoulder recover.

    Squats @ 435 lbs-3,3,2,2,2,2 Set/4 minutes. Rpe 9.25. I felt very tired today doing these. I tried to be careful to avoid further aggravating my right elbow tendonitis and was generally successful. If I keep just my fingers on the bar, I'm less likely to push the bar with my arms which causes the tendonitis.
    Chins-11,11,11. Tough
