    Week 17 Day 2
    Comp Bench
    (75_100) 100x3 @6.5, 95x3x2s @6
    Comp Squat (Technique sets) (95-135) 135x3x2s @6, 6.5
    Pendlay Row (3-4RIR) 80x10x3s @4,@3,@3 RIR
    DB Incline Bench (3-4RIR) 30'sx12x2s @4, @3RIR, x11 @3RIR
    Tricep Pushdown + Iso Hammer Curls (3-4RIR) 35+15x10 x 3s @3,@3,@2RIR
    Just tired today, slogged through. The DB Inclines felt great, go figure. Everything except that and squat was, meh.

    Gym opened up another couple hundred sq ft. - with the purple rug; for yoga "classes." Look in there and its 3 older ladies sitting on the floor.

    The stretchies/remedial stuff a few of the guys do, usually on a bench or in a rack - were still around; maybe its a pride thing to NOT go in the new room for this, with the old ladies?

    IDK, paying taxes on that extra space that is used for one "class" (a couple of older ladies, never more than 5), once a day - I wonder about the ROI.

    My leg is still kinda weird behind the knee, shoulders are sore - all from, what, 105? There's my age, but I forget I AM jumping on concrete.
    (Did I really used to jump under 140?) If I decide to try again, I'll have to go across town to the anytime with the platforms to see if there's a diff...use my little Honda with the gas prices that the fucking government is telling us is a high class first world problem to have ($3.79 for regular in west palm last week already). Whelp; I dont have to spend $1500 on heating oil right now, so there's that.

    Forgotta weigh before eating.
    Week 17, Day 3
    Comp DL
    (140-195#) 190x2x2s @6
    TNG Bench (87.5-102.5#) 100x3x2s @6
    SSB Squat (110-130#) 130x3x2s @6
    DB Laterals (15#) 15x4x2s @7
    Good Morning (3-4 RIR) 75x7x3s @3,@3,@4

    On to Next Block.

    I still am sleepy tired; maybe naps? Not sure the row isn't giving me some shoulders pain, but no knee cyst or anything w/right knee this am; that knee is still giving me fits, hurts some - and SSB squats felt GREAT on them (I don't understand!)

    So in my next strength block reps will drop a bit and intensity is increasing for a strength adaptation, w total sets flat or decreasing based on me (sleep/stress).
    My MEV/MRV for bench goes from 10/18 to 10/19, frequency 3.5 to 3.75x a week, that's the only change.
    Ok, I guess.

    Is it weird I give the bars names?
    Hella Knurl (only new bar, center knurl, spinning sleeves, bites like crazy, I KNOW I'm pulling too-high pcleans past my nipples>armpits bc my neck's marked up)
    Slippy Biggs (bigger diameter with a knurl like a baby's ass)
    Old Crusty (old bar with a patina, welded sleeves but the diameter is ok, knurl is between the other two)
    Serpentine Shelly (ssb, because of the dancy shenanigans I have to do due to where its wedged/stored).

    Comp Squat
    (155-160)
    160x4 @8.5/9? Rated 9

    (I messed this up, all lasered in on top set, THAT is when someone comes up to talk. I did the set, rated it @9 (between 8.5 & 9), didn't see it said 155# not 160 so backoffs 5# too light. Eh. Better than too heavy.)
    Press (60-65#) 60x4x4s @7
    Pause BK DL (175-185) 180x3x3s @6.5
    Leg Press (6-8 @3-4RIR) +145x7x3s @4,2,3 RIR (waited 1.5 min before @2, now I know)

    Got a head cold w/fatigue; worked but basically lie around all day while working.
    I'll take meds and go in tomorrow (my easiest training day) - it'll either go, or I'll have to leave.

    gainzzz, WAIT FOR ME!

    B5 Week 18 D2
    Comp Bench
    (100-105#) 102x4 @7 (felt strong today)
    95x4x3s @6RPE > app said, too lite, go to 100#
    100x4x2s @7, x4 @7.5 RPE
    Comp Squat (Technique - 95-135) 130x3x3s @6.5?
    Lat Pulldowns (6-8 @3-4RIR) 85x7x2s @4RIR, 90x7 @3RIR
    Iso Hold DB Lateral (3-4 RIR) 10'sx7 @1RIR, 5'sx7x2s @3RIR (ouch!)
    BB Skullcrusher (12-15 @3-4RIR) 40x12x3s @3,@2,@2RIR (planned on 35#, in use did 40#)
    superset
    DB Curls (3x6-8 reps) 10sx12 @4, 15sx12 @4, 20sx7@3RIR (ope! didn't see 6-8 reps til last set)
    Same deal watching the pcleaners on IG. "jumping", at the wrong time bar is going up but a foot forward;
    maybe do tall cleans, or SS coaching, don't they say it's the same as a DL? (I've never heard/seen SS say to relax your lats for DL's - gotta use them to get the bar IN CLOSE to your upper thigh/lap in cleans - yes, just like a dl).

    Saw more people trying to power clean today. I feel responsible for starting a trend, but how plausible is that? Maybe they're doing it in school?
    The app SAID lower reps/less sets for strength, but apparently it thinks I am too weak, and here we are - exhausted.

    I used to love when the school teams came in to work with my coach (S/C) at FDU - FB, BB, Hoopieball....you could tell who trained offseason and who kinda did not. We would get a kick out of me out-lifting them. The one lifter brought a friend, trained on my platform with me - he leaves, my coach is cracking up - he'll never be back, you outsnatched AND outcleaned him. Good times!
