    Was supposed to do this yesterday but I opted to go give plasma which meant I couldn't lift last night afterwards.

    1/15
    BLS W5D4- 5 weeks in!
    Gosh I hate leg day.

    Squat-i have been worried I've not been bending over enough but now that I'm up to these weights I have to in order for my hips to take over. 4 minutes between sets

    225x6-PR for 6
    235x4
    235x4

    It's worth noting that LP ended for me around 245x5x3. At a bodyweight around 220. I'm sitting around 201 right now.

    Front Squat-triple doubles is get 3, rack it for 30 count, get another 3
    165x3,3-PR
    170x3,3-PR
    175x3, 2-PR. Lot of forward lean here. Working on grip width still too.

    Behind my right trap felt tweaky after rear delts last week. Couple days of sporadic ibuprofen had it feeling fine. Felt it on front squats. Buried under my shoulder blade.

    I am working on slightly modifying BLS to include more pressing and benching frequency. Instead of chest day being all chest and triceps I am making sure to include a pressing movement. Instead of shoulder day being all shoulders I am pulling out an assistance exercise and adding in incline.

    So tonight I realized that all my life I've been touching the bar to my nipples and complaining of elbow pain and no power. Turns out I need to touch a few inches below the nipples!!! I think my bench will really go up now. I hope.

    Laterals 20sx10, 10, 10

    Some bicep stuff.

    I had already planned to back off on the squat weight today. My form needs more work. I think my jumps were too fast or I could benefit from squatting 2x a week.

    Squat
    225x4
    225x3
    185x6

    Leg Press-subbed these out for front squats. Man they are hard!

    So excited I have figured out bench press to a degree. Back tightness is still an issue but my bar path has improved so much I have no elbow or bicep pain. And it feels much easier.

    Barbell Bench-
    140x6
    140x5
    145x4
    145x4

    Incline DB Bench
    60x6-bench day PR but I hit this on press day too.
    60x5
    60x3
    50x6

    LTE-new movement for me
    31x6
    31x6
    36x6
    41x5

    Pretty good day. 45 minutes.
