    A little beat up and low and carbs today so I hit mcdonalds for the first time in 5 years or so and got 2 1 buck cheeseburgers and a sugary soda on the way home. It helped. ( sorry honey the quinoa salad and 2chicken breast was not enough for lunch.

    High volume day

    Warmup. I decided to add to it for extra squat volume. I am not squatting frequently enough to avoids DOMS when the intensities are high..
    Shoulder protocol ( 20 each, Dumbell front raises, side raises, seated press, curls)
    Barbell10 each, squats, good mornings and rdl's

    Then
    Front squat
    95x5
    Added straps for poor mobility so I can get elbows properly up.
    135x5,185x5
    Loading will go up as appropriate over time.
    I am hoping this extra light squat session helps the DOMS over time..

    Press
    45x5,80x5,100x5,120x5,137.5x5

    157.5x3@,177.5x3, 187.5x3@9 whew not bad

    157.5x3,177.5x3,187.5x3@10 no prs in reserve today
    Your not supposed to always get a pr after completing all the volume for the day, that trend may be slowing.

    Paused deadlift
    135x5,225x2,315x1
    375x3

    Rdl's
    255x8,10,10

    I was thinking of adding in RDLs at some point but have never really done them. When you do them do you think about trying to keep the shins vertical and going down as far as you can while keeping a straight back?

    Something like that. I position my self in the power position such as where you would hang clean from, then , without changing the knee position I lower the bar until going any lower would force a change in my locked back position or a change in knee angle, that is the bottom. Coming up I once again keep the power knee angle without moving the knees. All the movement is on the hip, the top is where in order to get the bar any higher I would have to extend my knees, I do not move the knee from that initial power position. This is a great accessory movement and a way to accumulate pulling volume with weights that don't beat you up badly. It seems to be a good driver for me lately.

    Shoulder protocol and warmup

    High volume day

    Bench press. No wrist wraps or belt.
    45x10,110x5,135x5,162.5x5
    With 3 minutes between sets
    202.5x5 230x3,257.5x2
    202.5x5,230x3,257x5x3
    Did 10 face pulls between every set.

    Good bench volume work kept me busy all volume work sets in less than 20 minutes.

    Going house hunting. I will do squats later.

    22 April Friday part two
    Higher volume day continues..going for density over prs again.

    Squats high bar no belt or sleeves
    45x5,160x5,200x5,240x3
    3 minute rest between every set.
    300x5,340x3,380x1
    300x5,340x3,380x2. Short rest induced fatigue.. Good quick volume. 3 minute rest is not as fun with squats as presses.

    Pull-ups
    8,8 opened a beer, what the hell pull-ups are boring,8,8,8,8
    Or 6 sets of 8 and a modelo
