    Strong people are harder to ignore than weak people and more sexy in general.

    Wednesday

    BW - 183.2

    Press - 110x5, 115x5, 120x5, 115x5

    Squat - 235x5x3

    Paused Bench - 155x4x4

    BW Chinups - 10, 10, 9

    A packed gym today. Might have pissed someone off by asking how many more sets he had. Lol... Did my warmup sets for Press off a bench rack. Can't wait to get my own house and build a garage gym one day.

    Doing light Squats after other heavy exercises really makes a difference for my fatigue level, but it's a new kind of stress to get adapted to, which is always welcome.

    Friday

    BW - 184.2

    Deadlift - 320x5

    Strict Press - 105x4x4

    Squat - 250x5x4

    Loaded up the plates for Deadlift at 320 lbs and was only able to do two very grindy reps with legs shaking. It was the weight I finished with on LP and I could NOT believe it had become this hard. So, I rested for a few more minutes and pulled a complete set of five. SO glad i didn't give up and it was a huge confidence booster. Self-doubting is just my biggest enemy and it's going to be a long hard battle to fight against it.

    Oh and don't underestimate the power of gym crush motivation. Ha!

    BW - 183.8

    Press - 115x5, 120x5, 125x5, 120x3

    Squat - 245x5x3

    BW Chinups - 12, 10


    My concentration was off today somehow - even forgot to use the hips and did a strict press for the first rep at 125 lbs. The last rep was a 5-secondish grind. A new PR regardless.

    Inspired by Chase Lindley's IG videos, I was striving for an explosive ascent and lockout for my light squats today. It really helped speeding up my reps and getting rid of the unnecessary "grind", imposed only by my constant extra thoughts about techniques and form. Stay on mid-foot and trust in your hips. BOOM!

    I try hard not to draw attention to myself.
