    If I had young kids, I bet 7 hrs would be good. 7 hours is OK, but if I can get more in on the weekend that's preferred, especially after a heavy training week like last week was.

    BW (5/15 morning): 236.0#

    Sleep (5/14 evening): ~7h

    Deadlift w/ belt
    435x4 @6.5
    460x4 @7
    485x4 @8.5, technical RPE, very slight hitch on rep 4
    485x4 @10, back rounding, ramping, fuck
    435x4 @8.5
    435x4 @8.5
    Got this done quickly (for me). Mediocre. Back not set as well as it should be, really.

    Wide Squat (no belt)
    295x6 @6.5
    315x6 @7.5
    335x6 @8.5
    325x6 @8
    Second time doing this. Last time I did not care at all. Feels awkward. Left glute not that happy with this movement.

    Mother-in-law is visiting and making all kinds of delicious food. I'm trying to get fat this week.

    Not sure on sleep. Probably about 7h. Took the day off work today because MIL is visiting and also my friend/coworker passed away from pancreatic cancer yesterday.

    2017-05-17 - C3W8D3
    Pin Squat
    350x4 @6
    370x4 @6.5
    395x4 @8 PR
    395x4 @8.5
    395x4 @9
    375x4 @8
    Finally got my elbows down like Mark was asking me to. Feels weird. Bar path is better than it used to be. Makes pin squats easier when you don't get forward at the bottom.

    Low back is pretty fatigued, but this went OK.

    Tried stiff leg sumo DL, but there was too much glute/hamstring pain with even 135. Thankful that next week is a deload.

    Pause deadlifts are like pulling your soul through a sieve when you have accumulated back fatigue. Good work.

    Yes, exactly. Thanks.

    BTW, OpenBarbell v3 is coming out May 30 at 8pm EST, in case you didn't know. I might get one. I crunched my v1 a little under my deadlift jack.

    Yay! I really want this objective measurement of performance. Being able to correlate rep speed with current strength would be a huge information gain and optimization for me.

    It's actually just the presale that starts on May 30... I guess they'll still have to make and ship them.

    Need to pedal a little faster.

    Pendlay Row
    205x8 @7.5
    205x6 @8
    205x5 @8
    205x6 @8
    205x5 @8
    205x4 @10
    One more rep than last week. Do density blocks work?

    Mark told me about a meet in Morgantown, WV in mid-August. Considering signing up. 4.5-5 hour drive, but now that my bench is coming back up to speed I need to get something on the calendar and get some more meet experience.

    Ice cream sandwiches, samosas and all kinds of other good stuff helping the bulk.

    Sleep has been over 8 hrs last couple of nights/days. Good. Also only had one beer yesterday.

    TRAC: Add 1 set

    2017-05-21 - C3W9D1
    Squat w/ belt
    435x3 @6
    460x3 @7, maybe 6.5
    490x3 @7.5
    490x3 @8.5, bar rolled up back/neck
    490x3 @9
    465x3 @8
    465x3 @8
    Great day. Exceeded my target by 5 lbs and still undershot the top set RPE by .5. Depth looked a little shallower than usual. Still below parallel, but perhaps too close for USAPL.

    This week is a deload, so there won't be any more squats.

    This hip/glute thing is a bit better after some time off. I've been taking ibuprofen somewhat regularly in 600mg doses for the last couple of days. I didn't take any today because it was feeling mostly better and I r dum. I should probably skip good mornings this week, as that seems like it would aggravate the condition. I did a bunch of hip stretches/rolling yesterday and things felt better after that.
