    Just challenging enough to drop down to +2.5's going forward. 5 lb away from my 5rm so it makes sense

    First set must have taken a bad grip because left wrist pain caused me to stop early. Next 2 sets triceps were just fried

    A little under the weather again but powering through. With some work obligations this week I had to push presses up a day which is always tough not having a recovery day after pulls.

    Challenging, but real happy to make all the reps; warmups felt like a bitch. 5 lb away from 5RM. Taking this down to +2.5's

    Missed squat session on 12/16 and HIIT on 12/17 (sick and left for vacation). So it's been almost 2 weeks without lifting - back at it now:

    ambw 222.4 lb - definitely didn't keep my protein high enough during vacation

    Bench
    225x2x3
    Moved surprisingly well for my first lift back from layoff.

    Deadlift
    380x1x2, xF
    Awful. Couldn't come close to budging 2nd rep off the floor for first 2 sets. 3rd set wasn't close to making the rep. Gonna get my volume and 5's in and hopefully get the groove back and crush this weight next cycle

    Paused deadlift
    330x3x3
    Should have been 2 sets of 4 but I was so winded. It was a night session and had sleeping kids above the garage so I had to lower the bar softly which makes paused deadlifts very tough apparently.

    PR by 8 seconds. Surprised how good I felt considering it was 3 weeks since I've done any HIIT or LISS.

    Moved surprisingly decent considering I missed a week of pressing. Better than the last few press double sessions.

    Squat
    260x1
    Supposed to be 290x2x3. Only was able to work up to my last warm-up; having stomach issues and left groin pain is back with a vengeance.

    Paused Squat
    240x1
    Thought paused might be ok but that left groin pain was the worst it's been in a while. The never ending tweak. Fuck!

    Not a good night for me. Left lat soreness that comes and goes was so bad I couldn't even lock out a single rep.

    Wanted to make sure I got in some kind of work tonight. RPM 91-97.

    Triceps were fried from volume bench being grindy. Wasn't even close to goal reps of 8,10,12

    Deadlift
    305x6x4
    Technically should have gone up to 315 this week, but I have a whole host of excuses as to why I kept the weight the same:
    -Missed a week of deadlifts for vacation
    -First session back (doubles) was a massive fail. Felt very weak off the floor
    -Did a boatload of shoveling yesterday and was still sore
    -Had to do this session at night with sleeping kids above the garage which means putting the bar down gently, which absolutely sucks for volume day

    Had serious trouble breathing, but the bar moved fine. I'll +10 it for the next volume week.
