So, like Rip & Sully recommend, my other two workout day pulls are power cleans (I'm 53 and I like them, having been athletic most of my life, but not focused lifting) and either weighted chins or "light" deadlifts (80-90% of the heavy day). That programming change (alternating from heavy squats, then pulling heavy 1x/week) seems to do the trick for recovery and progress.

    Great work. Keep at it!

    Not much by some but a bench PR for this time period of my life and it was easy. When younger my 4 rep PR was 275x4.

    I have got to get the squat above the bench.. It's pathetic but I think its due to back problems over the last couple decades but then I could just be a puss.

    A good day. Still above the dirt!!

    Thanks for the comments! It is nice to see some improvement no matter how small.

    7-19-2021 Monday

    Bench
    ..70-5
    120-3
    160-2
    180-5
    180-5

    Deadlift
    ..70-3
    130-3
    190-3
    235-3
    225-2

    Don't know what is up with the deads but my lower back hurt doing the set at 235 and the back off set was worse. My back does not like backoff sets for some reason.

    Oh well I stayed on plan with my top sets for both lifts.

    I had a sore spinal area of my back last night and today.

    I did a few very light squats to get some blood flowing. They did not bother my back but I also did not push my luck either.

    Squat
    .Bar-6
    ..70-5
    120-3

    On to Friday...

    I have been blessed with two PR's today. I am also going to try lifting just two days per week. I will see if I get enough recovery like this with shorter time between two of the lift days.

    Everyone have a great weekend!!
