    22/7
    Tried to bench. Back wouldn't tolerate arching.

    23/7
    Paused Bench
    152.5x1x5@8.5, 8.75, 9, 9, 10, 147.5x1@9, 145x1x6@8.5-9

    Squat (using a pain RPE today)
    220x1 @8.5 (significant but not severe lumbar pain/weakness on the lower left when driving out of the hole)
    192.5x3x4@6.5, 6.5, 6.5, 7.
    I did some McKenzie pushups after set 4, which usually help, but this time they worsened it: unracking set 5 was a pain RPE of about 8, and Mike has said don't train through bad pain, so I called it a day. 8 triples had been programmed.

    A few months ago, I would've let a workout this bad get to me, but I've had similar ones in the past and been able to squat normally a couple of days later, so they don't bother me as much as they used to do.

    That flare up nagged me all of last week when I was on holiday. Lots of massage ball work on my glutes seems to have got rid of it.

    12/8

    Competition Raw Bench 125x6 @7, 132.5x6 @8, 135x5 @10, 125x6x2@8, 9
    Deadlift warmed up to 190 and felt pain in my left hip and down my left leg - the type that punishes hardheadedness. Sulked about for a bit and then unleashed on the push presses...
    Push Press 97.5kg x 18 in 16 minutes. Almost had 20. Misgrooved two reps badly and missed them at lockout.

    Deadlifting can wait a day or two.

    49 chins in 10mins.

    Advised to skip deadlifts this week. Back/glutes were troublesome today anyway.

    15/8

    Tried to do the lever rows I was supposed to do yesterday. Did 70x9@7, felt similar pain to deadlifting, and decided it wasn't worth it.
    50 chins.

    17/8

    Squat w/belt
    190x5@7, 200x5@8, 210x5@8.5, 200x5@8

    That's all I had time for today because I was coaching my wife and her friend on the other lifts. My wife deadlifted 110 x 3 x 6 easily, which was cool.

    Video of 210x5@8.5:



    Having not squatted heavy for a while now, I've lost my feel for depth, staying tight, and even RPE a little to be honest: I can't remember what a 10 RPE squat really feels like. It'll come back eventually.

    This is better than some recent lifting, though, so I may as well celebrate it as a little achievement even though it's nothing special: the only way something special does happen is by adding up lots of little achievements.

    Back/hip feels better than it has for ages this morning. No pain through the whole cat/camel movement.
