    I suck so bad at this movement that any improvement is rewarding.
    The extra bro arm work and extra pressing assistance helps..I just need a lot extra to respond for this lift.meaning a high time investment for the total contribution.

    A little fatigued today.sinuses are also draining but the fail on the bench is my fault for pushing for a bigger PR while a pr with 5 less pounds was there.ego fail.

    Made a bargain with myself to drop the load if I finished five sets. Just mentally done lately.

    Dips plus vest x6x4 and 4x1 just done

    This is the the 12th loading week where I have been going for rep maxes on the bench and either the squat or deadlift every week. I have done a couple of deloads but I feel I a, about done mentally and physically with this training evolution.
    I am ready to go more submaximal for a while and build some capacity back up. Setting these benchmarks has been informational and for a while was fun. But I feel I have been giving up too much volume lately. Time to start building that after my nov-December vacation. Maybe the travel and lack of real training facilities will reenergize me.

    So my vacation is on and I plan on enjoying it and not stressing much about training or the lack of facilities.
    My Plan is Dropping frequency as I go into sport form I will be training all three lifts in 1 day but infrequently as I do when I up intensity and drop assistance to dissipate fatigue.
    I will then do Do a test day then do a restoration block the week leading up to and through vacation( do things I don’t do often)
    Then I can start another training year In December with a little less intensity and more volume.

    Rest days like today I take a leisurely 20 minute mile walk through the hills of my neighborhood. It’s GPP

    Enjoy your break Bryan. A little time off for some recuperation will do you good! I took a couple weeks in the summer and it made a big difference for me allowing some injuries to heal, fatigue to dissipate, and even the mental break part of it.

    I had a taper and sport block set up to test on thanksgiving, I decided I didn’t want to taper that long for a garage test and tested today . I can get more real training in for the loss in some test numbers, a worthy trade off. All I did was take Thursday’s session completely off in preparation for this test. Felt pretty good until deadlift where residual fatigue became apparent.

    Competition squat in sleeves and belt
    45x10x3,135x5.225x3,315x1 add belt and sleeves 405x1
    455x1 easy opener
    485x1last meets pr
    505x1 +20#. All time pr at a bw 8pounds lighter than when I hit 500 three years ago before I required shoulder surgery.

    Bench
    265x1
    275x1 matched last meet pr
    285x1 +10#pr since surgery.
    Kept it conservative since I overextended my shoulder doing dips on Tuesday and have been nursing it. I will take the progress shown.

    Deadlift
    545x1
    565xf
    565xf
    -10#
    My deadlift really benefits from a taper to show the full potential, I rack up a lot of fatigue and it takes a lot of effort and time to get to peak form after a long loading block. If I took the time to do a taper I estimate I am around 575-585 but without a meet I can’t justify the training time.


    So even with the deadlift not being ready for a pr today I am up 20 pounds on the total to 1335 or 605.5kg.
    Having the bench and squat moving is nice.
