    Session with my wife tonight 8/9

    Feeling tired, pushed mowed for a few hours in 98 degrees.

    Floor Press
    50x5x4-Moved up 2.5 pounds and hit 4x5 instead of 4x6

    DB Shoulder Press
    30x5x4-same deal, dropped weight to improve form though. Less side lean.

    Delt stuff with 15s and 10s
    2 sets of 10

    Pushups
    5, 5, 5

    Chair Dips
    6, 8, 8

    Last night after work I came home and hit a set of 5 continuous shoulder width chin ups. That's never happened before.

    8/12

    Never really felt the preworkout as much today. Definitely enough to get me ready but not a whole lot to amp me up as much. Maybe ate too much for lunch for it to have as strong of an effect?

    Squat
    Bwx5
    45x5
    95x5
    135x3
    165x5x3-Felt heavier today. 2.5 minutes between work sets
    10 pound jumps won't last much longer I would assume. Definitely felt it today back in my sit bones like Reynolds was talking about in the latest BBL episode.

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x1
    3 minutes rest
    245x5-went well

    DB incline bench 1 minute between sets

    Last night I hit a bw set of 5 chins on the monkey bars and then a triple off some eye hooks we have in the house.

    Bw 198-creatine weight. Gained 6 pounds since July.

    Floor Press- 4x4x55-do this weight next time at 4x6 or 5x5

    Shoulder Press- 4x4x32.5-shoulders were fatigued from pressing.

    Shoulder width chins-3 sets of 5 at bw! This is a big PR for me. Never done that before. A little more practice at the house and I'll start adding weight at the gym.

    Squat- first set was ugly. Second set I put my belt on and it all just came back so nicely.

    3x5x175-easy 10 pound jump. C4 and an apple pre workout. Got some carbs in at lunch too. 2.5 minutes between sets so still pretty easy.

    Deadlift
    2x4x265- Probably my last 20 pound jump. Really went up pretty fast but felt heavy and my LB is fried. 3 minutes between sets

    Chins- 2.5 minutes between sets
    5, 3

    Lower back and all feeling great today. Mid back a little stiff but only musculature.

    Worked 16 hours yesterday.

    Squat
    3x5x185-another 10 pounds

    Deadlift
    135x5
    225x2
    275x1
    315x1-no chalk or straps
    Super excited about 3 plates and how easy it was once I broke it off the floor. True 1RM probably 340 or so.

    Incline DB Bench
    45sx8,8,6,4 90 seconds rest between because strength sets would be useless after deadlift.

    Clean eating went out the window the last few days until night shift last night.

    Been up for 25 hours.

    Squat
    3x5x195-really surprised by how strong these felt. Last meal was 6 hours ago. 3 minutes rest
    It may be placebo. But approaching the bar forcefully and having a good song in my ears seems to make it easier.

    Incline DB Bench-front delts have deep acheyness from attempting 1rm dips lol. Idiot.
    50sx8,7,5-2 minutes rest

    Chins-3 minutes rest
    Mid grip +10x4
    Shoulder width +10x3
    Mid Grip +10x3
    Bwx2 close grip right after last set.

    Will pull 275 for volume on Friday hopefully.
