    Tuesday
    Weighed in at 194lbs
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Press 3x5x105
    Chins 5x5xBW+25 (3 minute clock)

    I was expecting to do OHP reps closer to 120. I warmed up to a single at 115 then just decided to back off to 105. I guess this is what a caloric deficit is doing to me, but I've only dropped about 4 lbs; that and the fact that I haven't been doing sets across like that for a couple of months.

    Hammies are real sore from my sets across on Monday. Hopefully they'll have recovered for Thursdays squat session.

    I'm still enjoying chins.

    Thursday
    Weighed in at 193lbs
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Squat: 3x5x225
    Deads: 1x5x305
    Intervals: 4 x 1/4 mile @ 7.8mph pace, 2 minute rest (7:42 minute mile)

    Hammies were still sore from Monday so I did lighter squats. 1x5x305 for deads ties my PR. I'm hoping I'll have a PR in me next week on deads to end this adventure on a high note.

    Strangely, my hammies feel better than before that workout. This all leads me to believe that I need more frequent, higher volume workouts on squats (along with plenty to eat) in order to make any progress and not be sore all of the time.

    Friday
    Weighed in at 194 lbs
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Bench 3x5x190
    Chins 1x1xBW+80 (PR)

    This will be my last Friday night workout here. If I'm organized enough by next Friday, I may try to get in a morning or afternoon workout before jetting out of here.
    Then 24 hours of travel, lots of airline beer, food and sleep.

    Monday
    Weighed in at 195lbs
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Squats: 3x5x250
    Power Cleans: 5x2x140
    Interval (treadmill) Run: 8x~50 yards @ 6 min/mile pace.

    I feel more mentally able to exert myself on squats this week.
    I need a coach for power cleans. I'm getting a tiny bit stronger but my technique is not consistent and is probably never really all that good. I easily get too tired to concentrate properly. Keeping the sets at 2 reps seems to help that.

    I'm so excited to be leaving today I can't concentrate. I'm going to try to sneak off to pack, take care of laundry and other "chores". Those are going to include some Squats, Bench and Chins.

    I was out of time so I skipped everything but the chin
    Got 1x1xBW+90 !!!! PR

    Monday (8/2)
    Weighed in at 189lbs (back to normal, neked morning weigh in)
    (Sets x Reps x Lbs)
    Squats: 3x5x220
    Bench: 1x5x195

    Drug my jet-lagged butt to the 'Y' for a very low energy workout.

    Now that I'm having to scrounge for my own food, I'm losing weight. It sure tastes a heck of a lot better though.

    EDIT: also realised that being at 6000 feet makes a difference in how you feel.

    I'm surprised at how quickly the upper body strength has gone... hopefully it comes back quickly too.
