    Mon 8/12
    BW 171.5
    6:00-7:20am at home

    Press 127.5x5x3 (rpe 8.5)

    Sq 285x5x3

    DL 315x5

    Press sets all on one/initial breath

    Squat grooving better and felt better than 275. May take another 10lb jump to 295. Thinking about driving my belt into my upper thigh is helping keep my air down low and catch a solid bounce off the glute stretch

    Wed 8/14
    BW 170.0
    11:15am-12:05pm @gym

    Bench 222.5x5 (rpe 9), 237x1, 207x5x2

    Squat 290x5x3 hard but fair

    Thoughts:
    -bench at 222.5x5 was a little harder than expected. Think I forgot to leg drive the first rep which made it feel heavy and added some fatigue. 237x1 flew up. Pumped to hit 225x5...its been years.
    -monday's BW at 171.5 was bloat from a quick weekend vacay, but i'm aiming for +1 per week and seem to on track

    Fri 8/16
    645-800am @ gym

    Press 130x5x3 (rpe 8.5, 9, 9.5)

    Lt Squat 235x5x3

    DL 325x5

    Thoughts:
    Next press may go 5x132.5/125/125. Plenty of room to move up on first set, third not so much

    Squat recovery went from non-issue to issue quickly. Will go to Mon+5, Wed 80%, Fri +5 for next week.

    bw 170.0
    7:00pm at home

    Press 132.5x5, 125x5x2 (rpe 9.0, 8.5, 8.5)

    Lt Sq 245x5x2

    DL skipped planned 335x5 b/c back pain

    Back pain creeping up significantly on 8/14 squat workout (290) and each squat workout after that, including light days. DL's seem to be fine unless already hurting from squats (i.e. don't increase the pain). Will see how it feels on Friday and consider a squat reset. May consider a new round of Starr DL's which seemed to reduce the pain more than the heavier deads are now, maybe light Starr every day with heavy LP deads on top of that once a week.

    Weight gain still on track but seems to have stalled the last week; probably will bump up another 250 cal/day

    bw 170.0
    11:00 @ gym

    Bench 227.5x5 (rpe 9.5), 242.5x1, 215.5x5x2

    Sq 235x5* 195x5x2 resetting from here

    c2b chins +50x5x3

    *Back worse than Wednesday. Reset to 195, which had minimal pain. Turning into 2 step forward, 1 back, but that's fine as long as the pain threshold weigh keeps moving up over time. Last two pain threshold weights were 245x5 then 290x5, so maybe i make it to 315 this time.
