    I have the feeling I'm going to discover that the adult table isn't as exciting as I thought it was.

    Default 2015/11/17 -- Light Day

    Squats: 230x5x3
    Press: 105x4x3, 105x7
    Deadlift: 345x5, 275x5

    Squats (3 minutes rest):

    https://youtu.be/jBdjhgjeJD4

    Press (4 minutes rest):

    105x4: https://youtu.be/hE4spRcr9Bs
    105x4: https://youtu.be/-BBq1SmYcBs
    105x4: https://youtu.be/9JEqgvk959E
    105x7: https://youtu.be/nziU39MYZhs

    This was essentially 105x4x4 with AMRAP on the last set. I managed to get into a perfect press 2.0 groove for some of these -- the bar just went up perfectly at the right time on the rebound.

    AMRAP on the last set -- I was pleasantly surprised to get 7. Rep 6 went up a bit slowly. Rep 7 was hardly a grinder, but I knew rep 8 just wasn't happening.

    Deadlift:

    345x5: https://youtu.be/p1McrKwI4MU
    275x5: https://youtu.be/4nZkvhJ0xwM

    I decided to do a back-off set at 80% (after about 6 minutes rest). I probably shouldn't have, given that I hadn't planned to do it, but there it is.

    That's only because one of my 45's is actually a 25 and two 10's. Come to think of it, I should just have gotten a boatload of 10-lb bumper plates. For a 345 deadlift, I would have had fifteen plates on each side!

At the end of LP, I was up to 9 minutes for the heavy stuff (from 285-315). (And once the rest started getting long enough, I'd start warmup sets for bench or press during the rest intervals.)

    At this point, I'm just playing it by ear. On light day, I'm managing to do 3x5 on 3 minutes rest. I did 4 minute rest on medium day last week, but that wasn't quite enough, so I'll probably go to 5 minutes. And I'm doing descending rest to match the descending sets on heavy day. As the weights get heavier, though, I may start resting longer between sets.
    Thanks so much thatís given me something to think about. I do 3 minutes regardless. BP and Press Iím most likely OK, I just donít have it in me to lift more. DL I can see where extended rest would be beneficial as I believe I ďhave itĒ but ďcanít bringĒ it as the body is tired. Thanks again for the insight.

    I wish I could remember where I read it, probably in Mean Ol' Mr. Gravity, which means it's somewhere here in the forum archives, but somewhere Rip makes the point that we're not doing conditioning, we're doing strength training. We need to rest enough to make sure that we get the next set. That's probably where I got the idea to lengthen my rest period when I missed reps.

    (But keep in mind that you have to balance this against staying warmed up. Coach Skillin advised never going beyond 10 minutes for squats or 7 minutes for press/bench press.)

    Default 2015/11/19 -- Medium Day

    Squats: 260x5x3
    Dips: 9/8/7
    RDL: 190x8x3

    Squats (6 minutes rest):

    https://youtu.be/moIufOyCkZI
    https://youtu.be/qRO2rPFGn8E
    https://youtu.be/lv0oKtdFOCk

    Dips (7 minutes rest):

    9: https://youtu.be/01iV9yY1bvs
    8: https://youtu.be/RNVczyvA3Vg
    7: https://youtu.be/rFkRnGUgVH0

    I think dips wear me out more than bench press. Of course, I'm doing more dip reps than bench reps.

    RDL( 6 minutes rest):

    My warmup at 175 felt heavier than expected, so I did these strapped.

    that's the advantage y'all have of being able to workout at home. sometimes at the gym i just feel very rushed because i'm hogging the rack for what seems like hours.

    Y'know, there's an easy solution to that problem. ;-)

    Default 2015/11/22 -- Heavy Day

    Squats: 295x5, 285x5, 275x5, 265x5, 255x5
    Bench: 175x5x5
    Chins: 6x4, 1x3, 1x4

    Squats (8, 7, 6, 5 minutes rest):

    295x5: https://youtu.be/I5m9yzLFteo (I almost actually had to grind a bit on the 5th rep.)
    285x5: https://youtu.be/G0zNCyubyv4
    275x5: https://youtu.be/h9EaGinD1nc
    265x5: https://youtu.be/lgfNrOe4l2s
    255x5: https://youtu.be/kZBBWn5iyzQ

    I worry that the stress here isn't sufficient to drive adaptation. Then again, I'm still in the honeymoon phase. I'm going to stick with it and see what happens. At worst, I don't make enough progress and have to reset and do something more stressful.

    Bench: (6 minutes rest)

    Set 1: https://youtu.be/L-ODgU5yx3Q
    Set 3: https://youtu.be/gg6MAwk7iN8
    Set 4: https://youtu.be/DqTSxCLjMws
    Set 5: https://youtu.be/wBKg-uKcHZ8

    I set up my phone to video the 2nd set, but forgot to push the red button.

    Chins:

    I intended to do 8x4 with 1 minute rest between sets. I managed the first 5 sets at this pace, then took a 2 minute rest when I almost missed the last rep of set 5. 1 minute again before the 7th set, but I only made 3 reps, so 2 minutes rest then 4 reps on the last set.

    Next week will be 6x5 broken up into 3 pairs of sets with 1 minute rest. For that, probably 3-4 minutes rest between pairs.
