    Ryan - I like that mini-Push Press that you do before your first rep to make sure everything's right where it should be. I'll have to incorporate that, since that first one out of the rack often doesn't feel quite ready no matter what. Thanks!

    Finally someone understands me. haha. Yes just helps me get in balance a little better and feel where my feet are because the stance often ends up rather uneven

    12/13/21 - Black Mountain Strength

    Squat: 250x5x4

    Bench: 205x5x5

    Chins: 10,8,6,4,4,4,4,4,4 = 48 reps

    This workout was done after a 16hr drive from Wichita Falls to Las Vegas. I was tired. But I think it was preferable to a 7am fasted workout in Texas and arriving home after midnight

    Monday 12/20/21 - Black Mountain Strength

    Squat: 260x5x4

    Chins: BWx10,8,6,4,4,4,4,4,4,2 = 50 reps

    I did not want to train today. Its so rare this happens but I was strongly considering taking the week off. Its just the time of year. Every year since 2009, business has slowed down around the holidays and there are gym closures and holiday parties and all sorts of stuff going on. I've always used the last couple weeks of the year to just relax and not worry about training or diet and do more social stuff. Then Jan 1st its always back to business. This year is different because I've moved away and can still train since I'm training in a garage in the house I'm staying in, and I'm not traveling for the holidays. So I'm able to train even though internally I don't want to. It also makes no sense to take time off now because I have to travel back to NY in mid January for a wedding so will be forced to miss time then anyway. So long story short, I trained and I feel better now and will just power through for 3 more weeks, and hopefully this malaise/lack of motivation does not return

    Ugh. Hit the wall on the DL. My back is stiff because I could tell I wasn't able to keep it flat on either 315 of 355. 355 was super slow so didn't even bother with the planned 375x5. I think there are many factors contributing to the current situation so will just have to try and deal with it as best I can. Frustrating.

    Since there have been recovery issues this week I decided to do just one top triple and then decrease Squat volume on Monday. I remember this happened last cycle as well and is a sure sign that my days of 5x4 on volume day should be done with. I'm considering revisiting the 4 day split next cycle. Even though I've never felt I was able to recover from back to back training days very well I'm hoping now that all aspects of recovery are actually better(sleep, stress, not training people all day, cooking all meals, etc) I'll be able to pull it off. We will see.

    Much needed volume reduction. Still kind of in "I don't want to train" mode but it is what it is right now.
