    Friday 9/13/13

    Squat 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 3/5/2x230
    Deadlift 2x5x135, 3x225, 2x275, Failed on 325.
    Chin ups 5x5

    Not a great workout. Very frustrating. I actually tried a back off set on the squats at something like 205 and only got 1 rep. I'm not sure what was going on today, but it wasn't my day. I couldn't even break the dead off the floor. I would have tried again at a lower weight, but was running out of time (and getting even more frustrated) so I moved on to chins.


    Tuesday 9/17/13

    Bench 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 2x185, 1x225, 2/1x275
    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 5/5/5/4/5x150
    Dips 16/14/10

    I was attempting the Press 2.0, per Karl's instruction, but I can't figure out how to get my elbows forward with my wrists straight. I'm going to keep running press 1.0 until my next reset, and then really focus on press 2.0. I think I'll add 2.5lbs for my next volume day instead of going for a 5 lbs jump, since I missed a rep.

    At Karl's suggestion, I'm going to start tracking my macros. For Tuesday, 9/17/13, they worked out to 2560 calories, 179/171/93 for protein, carbs, fat.

    Wednesday 9/18/13 - 2625 calories, 233/277/74 for protein, carbs, fat

    Thursday 9/19/13

    Press 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 3/2x175 (failed at 190 and 185).
    Bench 2x5x45, 5x135, 3x185, 5x5x225
    Dips 5xBW, 10/10/7x55

    I'm not too worried about my press today. First, I had one day less than normal between volume and intensity day. Second, I volunteered for a deconstruction through ReStore (Habitat for Humanity) on Tuesday, and I am still recovering from that. I'll hit 190 next Thursday.

    Nice benching. Take a look at this until Jordan's book comes out. It will help you establish some targets for diet, which I think will help your progress.

    Hey, Eric. After reading your comments over at my place I had to stop by and take a peek at your training log. You're making some really nice progress. Pressing responds greatly to the kind of volume you are doing. You will like what is coming. The work will be hard, it's supposed to be hard. The satisfaction of hitting your first two wheel press or three wheel bench, though, makes it all worthwhile.

    Also, as you found out, you are in good hands with Karl.

    Thanks Bob, I can only hope I get results like yours!! My short term goal is a body weight press and a three wheel bench for singles. Longer term is reps with 225 on the press and 315 on the bench. I'm hoping to hit the short term goals by the end of the year, but it will be tough. We'll see!

    Man, is it hard to get that much protein! And I really should be getting at least 300, per the article Karl linked for me. Looks like I need to increase my carb intake as well.

    Tuesday 9/24/13

    Squat 2x5x45, 5x95, 3x135, 1x185, 3x5x205
    Power Clean 3/3/3/3/2 x 135
    Chin Ups 6/5/5/5/6

    First day doing power cleans. Felt ok, but the weight was probably a little too heavy to start. I don't have any bumpers so I just went with 135. I'll probably repeat this again next week, to continue to get the feel for it. Squats are feeling better. I'm having much more confidence anyway. I'm going to keep adding 10 until I get back to at least 240 then reevaluate.

    Was a bit low on my protein intake. I am shooting for at least 215, but ideally 250-300.
