    Warm up - 500M row
    Continuing to LP things 5 pounds per week until I can't. I expect I'll hit the wall with 5's around Xmas with bench, then I'll drop in reps until I hit triples or doubles. Once I get stalled with those I'll move on to an intermediate program.

    I think I still have a ways to go yet with squats deadlifts. I may bump those to 10 pounds/week just to run things out quicker. Or, I mayu do something different too. I'm kind of fickle right now...

    Squat

    364-5,5,

    Comp Bench
    B-15
    155-5
    265-2
    308-1
    348-1 - Bumped up 10 pounds from last week to get ahead weight-wise of my close grip bench which I do Fridays. Comp grip should be easier but close grip seems almost the same to me.
    396-1 - Used my yellow slingshot - didn't feel any easier than my blue one
    293-5,5, - did one set paused, one non stop no resting

    Did some abs and GHR too.

    Deadlift - decided to bump up my deadlifts
    Bar-10
    155-5
    265-5
    375-2
    220kg/485-3,1 Vid below - got a bonus rep lifting it onto the rack to pull the weights off. Decided 1 set was enough. I'll do multiple sets with deficits and rack pulls as I alternate these.


    OHP - bumping these up 2.5kg/5 pounds/week
    Bar-10
    155-5
    225-1 Vid - Still a tiny bit of knee flex
    188-5,5,5,


    Did some weighted pullups and ab work too. Getting fat - too many goodies at work this time of year.

    Warm up - 500M row

    SSB paused squats (2 count)
    Bar-10
    160-5
    270-5

    Close grip paused bench

    352lb/160kg-1 Possible PR - I don't think I've done 160 before as I've never trained heavy singles that I recall with close grip (vid below). I'll have to check back in my log as at one time I was emulating a very strong old guy (Oldster) who was incredibly strong with close grip. He just dropped off the site one day...
    298-5,5,5, Did non-stop, paused at top, and paused at bottom sets. Last set was getting near failure.


    Did some DB curls, standing OH cable tricep extensions, and ab wheel too.
