    Deadlift (in jeans, didn’t pack my shorts today and it is a low stress session so I didn’t stress about it.)
    135x3,225x2,315x1,405x1
    480x5 it felt easier than last weeks 470x5 and a blue jeans Pr. Need to clean up some things. Leaning continues with unprecedented holes in the belt being used.

    CAT
    315x2,335x2,355x2,375x2,385x2
    Went through all of those in a short time. I may go to doubles across at top weight on the next time around. As long as the speed stays crisp with the pop at top. I want to see how I feel on Sunday performance wise before making that call.
    The cumulative quality reps have been a missing ingredient in my mix for a while but I respond to that when mixed with heavier volume.



    Incline bench
    45x10,135x3,155x1, 167.5x5x3

    V-grip landmine rows 3x15

    Good quick session. Feeling more recovered from the illness and my respiratory system is fully functional again.

    Deadlift
    135x5,225x3,315x1,405x1
    490x5

    Press
    We to 160x4x3
    Couldn’t get 5 reps.. maybe it’s the weight loss or fatigue from deadlift effort. Dissapointed but it is what it is. I may need to do more work
    Did some curls and went home

    Friday
    Missed the gym time slot as I drove to the coast to look at investment property. so I did plyometrics, pushups and triceps work at home. Next week will have more training sets. Plyo makes old guys sore in the hips.

    This week the gym will be closed Friday so I will likely lower stress squats and presses Tommorow and do the heavy deadlifts on Thursday. I was real happy with the way the bar moved today.

    Last few days were a blur of work so got some “me” work in finally.

    Deadlift
    135x5,225x3,315x1,405x1,455x1
    505x3 not as Slow as last weeks 500, 455x3x2

    Press
    45x15,135x2,145x1,155x1
    165x5,165x4,150x5x2

    Not looking to attempt any high singles on deadlift soon so will probably stop the LP for now. Add some variety and get off the grinder for a while, Peaking it out right now is a waste of valuable building sessions.
    Squat is going well, and if I take it easy on my next squat session I may be able to get a little Higher I. The 3x5 climb but like the deadlift it may be time to accept its time to do the real work again now that I am performing at a good level of my base strength squeezing out a little. Ore intensity probably won’t do anything.
    Pressing movements I am going keep doing what I am doing. if I have to drop weight for down sets I will just do More of them. Try to do some medium variation such as incline from time to time too. Smaller doses more frequently for presses will be the plan with enough variation to not have to buy a surgeon a pool.

    135x8,145x8,155x8,165x8,155x8

    Supersetted three sets each of dumbbell curls (always simultaneous) and triceps pushdowns.)

    Nice extra work day I can tolerate and had time for.


    Sunday 28 April 2019

    CAT day with variations just enough to keep the cobwebs off.

    Squat high bar with Belt
    135x2,225x2,275x2,320x2,340x2,380x2,370x2,340x2

    Swiss bar bench medium grip weight is nominal didn’t weigh bar, it’s just for my reference.

    135x2,155x2,175x2,195x2,225x2,225x2

    Supersetted with ng chins
    10,7,3,3,4,3

    Quick tempo session. This type of session really helps prime me for the next sessions.
    New 7 day prioritization clock starts Tommorow

    I leave on a 7day cruise in 2 weeks so I am going to let myself overreach a little.
