    They're doable.

    And thanks for mentioning in your write-up how youre 5RM is typically 85% of your 1RM. Don't know if it's the same for me, but it gave me a 5RM goal for now for bench and deads.

    BW - 193.4 (the sekret is not eating)

    ~45 min

    PC:
    225 x 1
    235 x 1 x 3
    240 x 1
    245 x 1 x 2 (started to do split catch here)
    235 x F (someone walked in front of me)
    225 x 1 (wanted to finish with a good rep)

    DL:

    405 (m) x 6@7
    405 (m) x 6@7.5
    405 (m) x 6@8
    425 (s) x 6@8.5
    405 (s) x 6@8

    TnG B up to 255 x 4

    Notes:

    Cut it off early; got out if work late, so I started late and didn't want to be away from home for so long being selfish. Probably going to have to make some compromises soon; the wife has a job she cares a lot about and which takes a lot of her time and has a much longer commute than I do (and my commute is longer in the new house than it used to be).

    I was supposed to do DL yesterday, but we got a call that there was water coming out from under our storage unit door. Turns out it was a leak in the roof in the neighboring unit. I mopped it up, and put down some homemade sandbags along the offending wall. It was still leaking when I left, but more slowly. I want to see if I can move out of there this weekend, but we don't really have the space right now.

    I also have a 5K this weekend that I signed up for as a gift to my wife who likes to run but doesn't get to train as much as I do. It will probably be a stoller-walking 5K for me, but it will be nice to have a family day.

    Thank you. And, no problem.

    Notes:

    Didn't lift on Sunday because I was moving boxes all weekend; didn't seem like a pertinent fatigue management strategy. I'm pretty sure I got more out of today's session than I would have on Sunday. Monday is a bit of a fluff day on this template, anyway, volume bench and squat are what matters.

    Still refining loading scheme. Squat was ok, although I probably should have dropped the load earlier. Bench was too much of a jump. Power clean was limited more by trying to rush out volume than it was by actual overloading. Feeling more beat up than usual after that session. After last Sunday's volume session I basically passed out on my couch until a tiny little man jumped on me.

    Diet is mostly free form, although I try to abide by Jordan's protein dosing recommendation. I want to work out a better PWO arrangement, though. I'm in a rush the whole time at the gym to get home for dinner, but dinner is never an "ideal" PWO meal. Thinking about buying a gym smoothie then eating a very small dinner just for the family aspect.

    Quick question. Was your 5 reps as 85% of 1RM a single set of 5 reps, or 3 sets of 5 reps?
