    Fri 9/6
    BW 170.5

    Bench 3x232.5, 232.5, 227.5, 222.5, 217.5 (rpe 9.0, 9.5, 9.0, 9.0, 9.0)
    *interesting that this dropped off over the 3x5 where the press did not. I've always assumed that my pecs are more fast twitch than any other muscle group and that may explain it.

    Sq warmed up to 255x1, 275x1 and aborted, too much back pain

    Strict hspux7x3 ~2:00 rests
    *can tell added press strength is helping, hoping to blow by prior single set max of 13

    Frustrated with the back squat pain. Some progress raising the pain threshold (from 185ish six months ago, to 235ish 3 months ago, to 275ish now), and reducing pain throughout the day in the process, but can't seem to get past this new level at around 275. Going to give some thought to programming front squats and snatch grip deads as a temporary sub for back squats. Both seem to be pain free at a trainable weight. Also would focus on driving up the deadlift, which has been pain free except when immediately following a squat that aggravated it. Also seems that lots of deads have been the best thing for reducing pain throughout the day.

    Wed 9/11
    BW171.0

    Bench 235x3, 220x3x4
    (rpe 9.75, 8.5, 9.0, 9.5, 9.0)
    (rest b4 sets --, 3.5, 3.5, 3.5, 4.5 min)
    Clear body weight ratio PR and bumping all time PR territory. Log from 10/5/2014 shows 235x4 at 181 BW


    Dead 315x5
    no pain, deliberate, by-the-blue-book reset each rep
    Current strength level is probably 345x5ish, thinking 10lb jumps to there, then +5's


    FSq 215x5x3
    very minimal pain

    Chin +55(plate belt)x5-4-3
    First time using plate belt, all previous were dumbbell b/w feet. Guess I had some kip in the dumbbell version, these were much harder thru mid range of motion
