    SQ: 215x5x3.

    SAME AS LAST THURSDAY: Woke up at 0340 to get to the gym when it opened at 0530. Chins were on the program today instead of DL. I figured I could do them at home, after Press, in the afternoon, to get a head start on Atlanta traffic back home before work.

    A fastidious contractor DID show up at my house as promised, and fixed a problem we had been living with for over a week. But other life stress filled the vacuum left by a good contractor experience, so I will plan on doing P and chins tomorrow, at home, and then training again on Saturday. Hope I don't drift into a 4 day split too soon, but I do appreciate the programming flexibility.

    P 1.0: 85x5x3

    Chins: bodyweight x 6, 5, 5

    Life stress continued to fill the restful vacuums I used to enjoy that helped me train consistently. I had planned on doing P and chins yesterday, at home, and then training again on Saturday. But that did not happen as I have a standing appointment Thursday evenings after work. I have been losing weight (4 pounds this week) and not sleeping well. Still, I continue to appreciate the programming flexibility. I'll get some solid rest and sleep this weekend, eat well, and plan on training at the gym Sunday afternoon.

    SQ: 220x5x3

    BP: 160x5x3

    DL: 290x5.

    Because of work, I anticipate Wednesday being the next day I train. If I go to the gym before work, it will be just SQ, and I'll have to do P and Chins at home after work. At best, i can see my schedule becoming W/F/Su. I want to wait until the appropriate time, per the Novice program in The Barbell Prescription, before I consider formally switching to one day on, two days off, or even twice weekly.

    SQ (light day): 205x5x2

    BP: 170x5x3. I did the first set on one breath per rep. When I do more than one rep per breath, it feels like I neglect a full lockout, a little. But that does make the set a little harder. So I did the subsequent sets 2+2+1 (reps per breath).

    DL: 300x4+F. Surprised at the fail, since I did these on a light squat day. But I am going to cut to the chase and alternate haltings and rack pulls, which worked good for me before the April SS meet. Not sure if I will even include full pulls in the rotation, since there is no meet on my horizon.

    SQ: 240x3x2. I'm going to do a rep progression. Next day I squat, it will be a light day (95% for 1 set of 5). Next squat day after that, I will do 240x4, 3, 3.

    P 2.0: 95x5x3. Wrist wraps. Hanging from the chin bar of the power rack at the gym before warmup sets helped me stretch. I don't have that luxury at home since my SQ rack and chin bar is a modular unit from IronMind. Next P day, I will add 2.5 pounds, but just do 97.5x5, 3, 3.

    Chins: BW x 5, 6, 6. I wanted to progress in reps on the second and third sets, instead of just always that first set.

    I wanted to take advantage of the Memorial Day holiday off work today to drive into the gym. I flirted with the idea of squatting heavy, having only squatted light on Saturday. But I decided to just Press and Chin, and do Squats by themselves Wednesday before work.

    P 2.0: 97.5x5, 3, 3.

    Chins: BW + shoes (2 pounds!) x 5; BW minus shoes x 6, 5. I like my chin bar at home better. I do put athletic tape on it.

    This split might could work really well for me going forward: Monday P, chin (gym before work or home after work); Wednesday SQ heavy (gym before work); Saturday SQ light, BP, halting DLs or rack pulls.
