    Saturday 7/27 - AMRAP

    I had a really crappy work out. Last weekends festivities and my work schedule (60 hours) really caught up to me. I didn't realize I was over worked until this work out. Everything felt heavy my squats sucked. But it all adds up; I didn't eat good food, lack of sleep, and a lot of work.

    Squat
    275x3 - going to re-do this on Saturday

    Press
    145x6

    Deadlift
    345x5

    Curls
    110x7,6,5

    Sunday 7/28

    Conditioning - Pushed the car - 20 on 1:20 off x 8

    Good one felt the burn in the legs by the 6th set and was huffing and puffing

    Weight is down to 183-184. Time to bump up cals consistently unlike last weekend. To keep the progression going I have to make 4 quick adjustments.

    1. Put more holes in my belt, its to loose right now

    2. More effort into sleep

    3. Consistent diet of the right macros

    4. Cycle two days to one day a week conditioning

    Tuesday 7/31 - Upper Volume

    Bench
    202.5x5x5

    Started off feeling heavy but it got easier with every set.

    Press
    120x8x3 - 2 more reps than last time

    Chins
    55lbs x 5 x 3

    I got some really good information from the Coaches tab on this forum about the TM. I realized the focus of the program should be volume days which drive adaptation and the relationship between them and intensity days. Looking forward to getting my intensity days heavier.

    Wednesday 8/1 - Lower Volume

    Squats
    245x5x5

    89% of my Intensity day squats. I was gassed doing these not sure why, the new holes in the belt helped but still not as tight as it should be. I used the thick 55lb bar that doesn't rotate at the sleeves for the first set which messed me up mentally - as dumb as that sounds.

    Power Cleans -
    175x1x10 - 1 minute rest between sets.

    No conditioning, really paying attention to recovery this week. Want to hit 275 squats for 8, that would make me really happy.

    Tuesday 8/13 - Upper Volume

    August is already here, soon its chili and football season. Can't wait to have some great dark beers and cold air.

    Press
    132.5 x 5 x 5

    Bench
    190x8,8,7

    Chins
    BW x 10,10,9,5

    Wednesday 8/14 - Squat Volume

    Squat
    255x5,5,5,4

    I was reading through some threads and one stuck out at me. Jordan F mentioned that if you fail on ID in the first three reps it might be because of lack of recovery, whether its too much volume or not enough food is for me to figure out.

    It kinda relates here because I went from 270x8 to 275x3 the next week then 275x5 to 280x2. Somethings isn't right, so I'm going to stick to 255 for volume day for a little.

    Power Cleans
    180x1x10

    I was watching videos of people who know how to LB squat, and I realized that when I used to do it my legs weren't wide enough. Right now I'm doing HB close stance, and I get these weird pains in my left hip from the one time I went to low on a HB squat 6 months ago. Now I can feel my left hip joint pop during certain times.

    I want to try to do low bar again now that I have figured out that I wasn't doing it perfectly. Maybe it will help make the irritation go away on my hip.

    Saturday 8/17 - Intensity Day

    Squat
    280x2x2

    Switched back to low bar but now with proper feet width. For not doing these for almost a year not to shabby.

    Press
    147.5x4 - This is bad, I think the volume for both my bench and press is too high

    Deadlift
    360x5

    Sunday - Conditioning

    Car pushes x 10 trips

    Tuesday 8/20 - Upper Volume

    Bench
    207.5x5x5 - This kinda felt hard, I need to drop the volume

    Press
    115x9,8,7 - Staying here until I can get it for 10x3

    Chins
    60lbs x 5 x 3

    Wednesday - Squat Volume

    Low bar
    245x5x5 - Figured out some more things with form, placed the bar a little lower and kept playing with width until it felt right and looked right. 245 was easy to squat but not to hold, I have to get used to the grip again.

    Power Cleans
    185x0x0 - I thought I was suppose to do 185 but in reality I had to do 182.5, this was kinda a big jump so I only got 1 rep out of 7

    Thursday
    BW: 186.2 - weight jumped a little after two loose weeks with macros but I'm off vacation and back into the game.

    Conditioning - Erg 8-10 round of 30 on 1:30 off

    Saturday 8/24 - ID and Conditioning

    Squat
    290x1 http://s884.photobucket.com/user/kou...c9ac9.mp4.html
    290x2 (spotted)

    I think I'll try doubles next week if I can find a decent spot, singles if I don't.

    Bench
    227.5x3 - 4th rep was spotted
    227.5x3

    I think volume may be the colprit behind failing to do 5, going to up volume weight but only drop to 3 set of 5

    Deadlift
    365x4 - 5th rep bar slipped out, I didn't use chalk today

    Conditioning - Car pushes
    8 trips: 20 on, 1:30 off
