    Squat: 320x5x4

    YouTube

    Bench: 220x5x4, 225x5

    Chins: BWx10x2

    Squats felt easy. Realized 222.5 should have been involved in my benching somehow. Ran out of time for adequate chins

    Definitely happy about how good the Squats felt. The last time I did this I was 25lbs heavier and was likely a grind. I'm going to look back in the log and see if I have a vid. Feeling confident about PR'ing my 5RM squat at a much lower bodyweight in the upcoming weeks.
    Bench moved pretty well. Getting a little elbow flair but nothing major. Will address next time.
    PC weight is still pathetic but moved pretty well.
    Elbow tendinitis is definitely back but under control so far. However I do see some pre-workout Aleve in my future
    Just swinging by here to say the 365x5 looked easy as hell and the form looked really solid. That's awesome to see particularly given the lower bodyweight.

    Press: 162.5x5, 145x8

    YouTube

    Deadlift: 425x3, 365x5

    425x3 - YouTube

    YouTube

    Press moved slower than I was hoping for. Deadlift squeezing is still not there. Although the back off set was definitely better. I think I need to cue myself to just be "forward more" at the time I'm squeezing. Squeezing my chest up tends to shift my weight back too far

    Squat: 370x5

    Bench: 247.5x5

    PC: 180x2

    Squats were a little ugly, especially the second rep. Just didn't have great focus on the top set for some reason. Karwoski would be mad at me. 5th rep slowed a bit. I still think i can make it to 385x5 for a PR though. We'll see. Bench was a bit slow. Will switch to triples. PC's were fast. The key I think is to have someone film me. For some reason it helps me psychologically

    Bench: 225x5x5

    Elbow pain is steady to increasing. Not fun, but still in "I've had worse" stage. Will be slowly upping Aleve intake from here on our methinks. Volume day weights both moved well. I've started running out of time for chins.

    Press getting a little grindy. Will switch to triples next week. Same old story with DL. Weight moved well. Squeeze not great. Better on backoff set again though. Will have to work on this next cycle

    10/6/17

    Squat: 375x5

    YouTube

    Bench: 250x3x2

    CGBP: 215x7

    PC: 182.5x2

    Squats may have been a shade high. Very close. But happy with how well the weight moved. Will make a 10lb jump next week, crush 385x5 for a 5RM PR and move to triples. I've decided I need a definitive end to this training cycle so I'm going to do a Mock Meet for myself, most likely on November 10th or 11th, but possibly on the following week depending on how the runout goes. But I figure I'll do heavy 3's, 2's, 1's, then taper for a week leading up to a testing day. I'll go for a heavy Press single(unlikely to be a PR) the week before, then test Squat, Bench and DL as if I'm doing a Meet - maybe just do two attempts for each, we'll see. Overall very happy with strength levels as well as how my body feels right now

    I just took some time to review my training log. Observations:

    1) Its still unclear why I've been so inconsistent keeping squoze in the DL. Could have a bit to do with switching back and forth between Chucks and Do Wins. I think my next experiment will be to use the little hamstring stretch before each rep. Like Petrizzo does without the shimmy. That way I can get a bigger breath(hopefully), feel midfoot a little clearer, and hopefully just get a better squeeze that doesn't put me on my heels.

    2) My previous PC PR is 185. Pathetic. But at least I'm up for a PR there soon. Will probably hit heavy singles as high as I can go either next week or the week after and then add some chins back in on Fridays

    3) Bodyweight is climbing again. I was 217 in early July and now I'm 225. So I'm happy to finish up anywhere in the 225-230 range in November. Then its cut time again and get myself down to 205/210lbs and 20%bf by the Spring. Should leave me enough time to be PR'ing again by year end 2018
