    Great day today. I planned on 455 for two triples. Third rep went up so nice I went to my (preferred) plan of a single set of 5. I've not been able to do 455 x 5 in so long.... This was a very nice win for an older-ish man that's still trying to hit a few decent lifts.
    That's some solid deadlifting Irongeek! Looks like the rest of your training is going well too. Did you order a slingshot?

    Hey Skid! Thanks. Training is going pretty good. Developed a bit of tendinitis in a couple of spots, but I'm able to train through it...

    I did go to the Rogue web site and put a blue XL slingshot in my cart, but dangit - they offer the thing in 5 sizes and I procrastinated on the purchase.
    Which size did you get? I think the size you got would work well for me as well, as I think we're pretty close in body type. XL is my best guess for now...

    I have not been logging the last few sessions. My bad!

    Yesterday (pulling day)-
    DL w/belt and w/straps - 390 x 8r x 3s
    Curls - curl bar + 70 lbs = 15r x 4s

    Today:
    SSB squat w/belt - 360 x 6 x 6
    Bench -275 x 3r x 10s

    Just lots of volume. Boring, but listened to Rip's latest podcast, which is always entertaining.

    Light Pull/Press day

    OHP (beltless) - 140 x 5r x 9s
    Pullups (BW + 25lb) - 7, 7, 6, 5

    Got a nice case of golfer's elbow on my left arm. Not a problem for press, but the first set or two was somewhat painful on pullups, but got better in later sets.

    Today's work:

    DL w/belt and straps - 395 x 8, 8, 10
    Video of last set - Yes, First 2 reps were not to lockout - I tend to rush things when I do higher rep deadlifts and squats.

    Bench -235 x 5r x 8s - various grip widths.

    Decided to start transitioning from high volume to more intensity. I wanted to see where I was at. I've done no peaking or deloading or anything like that recently. My last heavy squat day was Wednesday, deadlifts on Thursday, so didn't expect much.

    SSB squat w/belt - worked up to 430 (lifetime PR!), then 395 x 4, 4, 4 (last rep of the 3rd set was a grinder), then 380 x 4
    Bench - work up to 320 (lifetime PR!), then 275 x 4 x 4, 225 x 12 (AMRAP)

    Good day - better than I expected or deserved.

    SSB PR:


    Bench PR:

    Today:

    Deadlift w/belt - 455 x 1, 405 x 3r x 4s
    Press w/belt - 155, 165, 175, 180, 185, 165 x 3 x 4

    My back was fatigued from yesterday's workout - DL was tough. Took what I could get.
    Presses felt suprisingly good, however.
