    Haha. Yes. And then I'll apply for reinstatement into the 1972 Olympics

    Congratulations Ryan. Yours was one of the first logs I started following here, as the title jumped right out at me as it's the one lifting goal I myself have wanted more than any other. I hope you celebrate with a fat steak, or something appropriate.

    Thanks Mike. I did have steak last night! Just read your log. That elbow-itis is a bitch isn't it? Best of luck on your road to 405

    Good job really owning the weight. If you don't make 200kg it's mental.

    Thanks Tom. I don't really try to figure out E1RMs, but I did think to myself this morning that with a taper and rest - just visualizing 35 more lbs on the bar - should be very doable

    Thinking of taking some weight off the bar tomorrow for Volume Squats. I realized I've just been adding 5lbs/week as I progressed through 3's, 2's, 1's. I've not failed any reps but last week's 350x5x5 was a grind and killed my elbows. If I guess at my 5rm right now - 385? - Which may be a tad aggressive - 85% would be 330 and 90% would be 345. So I'm thinking of going with 340x5x5 tomorrow, 345x5x4 the following week, then some sort of reduced ramping volume the following week (9 days out from Meet). Happy to hear thoughts from anyone experienced in these matters.
