    11/6 Lower Volume
    SQ: 5x3x415
    Beltless Deficit DL: 5x3x455 (might seem like a big jump, but I'd been up to this before the meet)
    Cardi-oh. 15 minutes on the bike.

    BONUS: Storytime.
    Currently train at a commercial gym smack-dab downtown. Lest you google search it, you'll find the one. Apartment living has its way of forcing you to train at such a place. Anyways, these guys next to me while deadlifting were doing the usual hips-too-low bro form. One guy had his feet apart about 2 feet. His bud was trying to teach him how to deadlift. I told them I was trying to become a coach and they'd be helping me out if I could take new guy through the deadlift. They shrugged me off. I proceeded to do my deficits. Finally, the guy asked me why I was so narrow. Told him why. Did it for 1 rep and then switched back to a wide stance, pull-from-the-toes DL. I just decided to keep my headphones in the rest of the time.

    11/7 Upper Volume
    PR: 3x4x197.5 – Failed 4th set.
    Bench: 5x3x265 – These are moving pretty well.
    Rows: 5x3x290 – Supine grip. Starting to give out a little bit. Will keep supine until I have to go DO grip.

    11/9 Lower Intensity
    SQ: 3x450/2x440 – Thinking the volume is creeping into intensity territory. Going to drop the intensity and up the volume on LV day.
    DL: 3x515 – Too grindy. Got too greedy this week.

    11/10 Upper Intensity
    PR: 2x3x205
    Bench: 5x3x270 – Missed last rep on last two sets. Will repeat on Tuesday.

    11/13 Lower Volume
    SQ: 5x4x385 – Dropped intensity and added a set of volume for all the tonnage.
    Beltless Deficit DL: 5x2x460

    Was pretty whooped Monday. Had an all-day event and simply didn't have enough to eat. Felt it on my deadlift sets so cut the volume down.

    11/14 Upper Volume
    PR: 5x3x185 failed last two reps on the last set.
    Bench: 5x3x275. Failed last two reps here too. Should've repeated from Friday. Didn't.
    Row: 5x3x300. Supine only. Grip wasn't an issue. I've officially peaked. My row is now better than 90% of the dudes that deadlift in my gym.
