    I had to do a split workout today. Had to cut workout short because of work. Did afternoon and evening session

    Afernoon:
    Squat: 5x5 @235lbs

    Press: 5x5 @155lbs only warmed up with bar trying to save time. 1st set hard as hell 2-4 much easier. Last set pretty hard again.

    Row(Supinated) 5x5 @155lbs

    Row (Pronated) 3x5 @155lbs Ran out of time, and wanted to be able to hit Chins before I had to leave for work.

    Chins (assisted 3x20 @-145lbs hit 20, 15, 8. Grip gave out hard on the last set. Also was rushing with very little rest trying to squeeze them out before work.


    Evening:

    Deadlift: 1x5 @325lbs

    Bench Press: 5x5@ 200lbs Also did 4x12@135lbs just cause I feel like my bench is weak and I may need volume) Had to rest around 8 minutes between my heavy sets. Rested 2 minutes between volume sets.

    Chins (assisted): 1x20 @-145lbs. I discovered why grip is killing me. The handles on the assisted chin machine have that padding that make them much fatter than a bar. Fat bar actually much harder to grip. I figure getting jacked forearms ain't bad.

    10/16/2020 Friday Doing another split workout today, morning and evening:

    Morning:
    Squat: 245lbs 5x5 First time squats got hard. Real hard. This is probably my last 10lb jump between workouts for squats.

    Press: 160lbs 5x5 3rd and 4th sets were a little ugly. Bar didn't go up evenly on some reps (left arm lagged lower) last set I crushed it and was surprised that it was actually easier. maybe weird but at end of 4th set, I clamped my buttcheeks together and it seemed to give me a little more stability/power.

    S. Row 160lbs 5X5 I used to hate rows. Now they are the easiest lift I do! hahaha
    P. Row 160lbs 5X5



    Evening:
    Bench: 205lbs 5x5

    Deadlift: 335lbs 1x5

    Chins: -145lbs 3x20

    Extra, cause I'm a masochist:
    Bench 135lbs 3x12

    Press 135lbs 3x5. failed lest rep. was only taking about 2minutes between sets cause I just wanted to devastate my shoulders and arms. Felt some weird popping in my right forearm on some of the descents

    10/19/2020 Monday

    Morning: Today was my first time failing (on Press) very dejected. I was trying to rush through the sets with less rest in between, because I had the trainer there with me from the gym. Gonna try again same weight next time.

    Squat: 250lbs 5X5 Had a popping left knee all weekend. Was worried it would affect my squat. Was actually easier.

    Press 165lbs 3x5 failed on 2nd set. rested and got 2 more sets in. Gas tank completely empty could only grind 1 rep on 4th set.

    Row: 165lbs 3x5 2sets pronated 1 supinated. I quit early cause I was gassed. Want to be able to hit evening workout strong tonight.

    10/19/2020 Monday Evening: Went in super fired up to smash some weight. Pissed about my failure in the morning.

    Bench: 210lbs 5x5 felt easy today

    Press: 165lb 2x5 only got 4 on 2nd set. gonna deload and do 2.5lb linear progression with micro plates
    Press: 152.5 3x5 nailed it. was tough though
    Press 135lbs 2x6 those 6th reps were tough as hell. I just wanted to punish the shit out of my press so my arms learn their lesson and don't fail me again!!

    Row: 165lbs 5x5 Supinated
    Row: 165lbs 5x5 Pronated

    Deadlift: 340lb 1x5 cant really count my last couple of reps. didn't lock out at the top that well cause my grip gave out and was slipping out.
    Deadlift 315lb 1x5 much cleaner lockouts.

    Chins: -130lbs 5x12 easier than last week.

    10/20/2020 Tuesday Morning Not a lot of time for workout. Gonna go punish my shoulders on the Press some more.

    Press: 135lbs 6,10,12 Squeezed my buttcheeks and my tailbone popped at end of 2nd and 3rd set. Got a burning sensation through my glutes. Interesting

    Chins -130lbs 1x20 Only had time for this. Had to leave. Will try to squeeze in some work tonight.

    Friday 10/21/2020 late afternoon:

    Deadlift 365lbs X1 Had to use straps
    Deadlift 315lbs 1x5 Grip was good. felt strong.

    Squat: 265lbs 3x5 stepped down to 3x5 from 5x5. I want to keep progressing, and I think If I do 5x5 I will be too sore/ risk failing reps. Also, I am pooped from just deadlifting and want to hit Bench today too

    Bench 220lbs 3x5 I stepped down to 3x5 here too. I may try 5x5 again monday if I am feeling it.
    Bench 145lbs x12
    Bench 155lbs X12 back off sets or drop sets. Trying to stimulate my puny muscles to grow.

    Chins: I literally did two reps at -130lbs and I was just too tired. Gonna hit it hard next week.

    I can make excuses till I am blue in the face. Im disappointed with my energy today. I was feeling tired, and really wanted to hit deadlift since I hadn't done it since Monday. I was sore in my low back all week. I think I will look into next week trying to shorten my workouts, but making them more frequent, and more intense.

    10/26/2020 Monday Was not feeling well (recovering from a cold or something) Sore right arm from armwrestingling this weekend.

    Squat: 270lbs Was leaning a little too far forward on 1st rep. Got a little dizzy and lost it. Fell back with bar. A little banged up. My right upper arm hurts a lot worse now, like a tendon or something, and banged my head on bar.

    Wanted to go finish workout, but decided might be smarter to just come back Wednesday and hope Ill be all better by then.
