    Squat: 225x5x3

    Bench: 205x5x5

    Chins: [BW, +25, +40, +50] x5

    Think I'll go to a long drawn out Volume/Intensity Split for Squats. It feels like more recovery time is better for how my hip area feels both during and after. I'm not interested in eating less right now so hopefully extra Squat volume at a lower intensity will go ok. But would like to get the other lifts moving up again

    This workout looks unimpressive, and shorter than normal(I've just changed programming). But it is significant in a non-obvious way. Its the first time I've felt good about training in almost 2 years. Let's recap:

    On 10/27/17 I racked 405 after taking it down for a 20lb Squat 5RM PR that moved surprisingly fast. The day after that happened I experienced system fatigue that did not go away for 2.5 months, caused me to even have bloodwork done, and had residual effects that lingered for the better part of 2 years. Training through soreness for those 3 weeks leading up to a Mock Meet I did on 11/18/17 really wrecked my body. I strained my left Quad when I PR'd my Squat at the Mock Meet. Afterwords I had sciatic symptoms, numbness in my leg, and there must have been some connection to my back because I seemed to tweak it every couple months for like a year. Fast forward to this Spring and I strain the Quad AGAIN, forcing me to stop my cycle at a Squat of 335x2. Luckily this time I actually REALIZED I had strained it and rehabbed it properly(Thanks John Petrizzo I owe you a beer!). Anyway, Squatting has felt good and normal the last few weeks, my form on all lifts feels dialed in, and I finally feel ready to get strong again. I think I have a good plan for programming for a while, so If I can avoid injury, all I have to do is show up and execute. I hope to compete at South Brooklyn in the Spring next year and then hopefully be back in PR territory next fall.
    I read the wikipedia article but is 'system fatigue' a real thing? Do you have a serious diagnosed medical condition?

    I can't understand the rationale behind any of the programming or work I am seeing above, it's inconsistent, makes no sense and even if it makes sense to you why not just do the novice program?

    Why have an online 'competitive' log on a public forum if you don't want to discuss training?

    No I do not have a diagnosed medical condition. Sorry you don't understand the rationale. Yes it does make sense to me. Squats have been reset a bunch due to setbacks and have been mostly novice progression. The other lifts usually stay intermediate

    9/6/19

    Squat: 230x5x3

    Bench: [235, 240, 245] x2

    Treadmill Jog: 8min(.75miles)

    Squats felt good. Bench moved well. I may have to play some beach volleyball next weekend. Since I have done no running or sports of any kind in a long time I figured I would get a few runs in. Achilles Tear Prevention Program. Felt pretty good actually. My inner athlete is definitely pissed at me though for neglecting him for so long. I think I'll keep once/week conditioning in the program until recovery is affected. Will mix in Airdyne, Jumprope, Sled Pushes and Treadmill. Whatever I'm feeling like

    9/11/19

    Bench: 205x5x5

    PC: 145x3

    Deadlift: 325x5, 285x5

    Ryan Arnold on Instagram: “325x5. I still lift weights. DL finally feels good again. While I’m not as strong as I was 9/11/17. I’m a lot stronger than I was 9/11/01.…”

    Treadmill jog: 10min/1.02mi

    Deadlifts feeling solid again finally. Getting some shoulder irritation in the PR and BP the last couple weeks but nothing to be concerned about yet.
