    squat: 3x5x325
    pause bench: 3x5x252.5
    rdl: 2x8x365

    Since I have some form issues ro resolve on the squat I've gone to regular squats for a bit on medium day. I need to work on keeping my knees from coming back too much out of the hole while keeping the bar path vertical. I think staying in my hips better should fix it, but it will take some work to correct.

    Fri 1/13/17 (H)

    squat: 2x6x370, 1x370
    bench: 3x4x285
    deadlift: miss at 500

    Wow, I went into tonight worried about my sore right knee and got blindsided by a fish. I ate him for dinner 2 1/2 hours before lifting and he still came back to haunt me after the second squat set. I guess tortilla-crusted Tilapia before hi-rep squatting is a bad idea for me.

    I'll give the 500 deadlift one more try next week and see if I can pull it without indigestion. Even as I was, I managed to get it past my knees.

    Congrats on those great numbers. Maybe keep the Tilapia bland and blah?

    The Tilapia was pretty bland. It was the heavy sixes that did it. I'm a bit out of practice after the holidays.

    Sun 1/15/17 (L)

    squat: 2x5x305 (lower back still surprisingly sore)
    press: 3x3x200 (a good guess for the starting weight here)
    chins@50 lbs.: 5/5/5/5/5

    T 1/17/17 (M)

    squat: 3x5x340 (raised it 5 lbs.)
    paused bench: 3x5x252.5
    rdl: 2x8x365 (vy. hard tonight)

    My lower back is *still* smoked from last Friday. I hope 2 days off will be enough before squatting heavy again.

    F 1/20/17 (H)

    squat: 4x390, 3x390 (miss on 4th), 5x370
    bench: 3x2x305
    deadlift: 1x500 (p.r.)

    Squat: I finally have to give in to reality. My offsets from the top single have only been 10 lbs. per additional rep, and it clearly isn't working. I've decided to try broadening out the spread a bit going forward:

    1 rep -> 420
    2 reps -> 405
    3 reps -> 390
    4 reps -> 375
    5 reps -> 360
    6 reps -> 345

    I did 5 reps on the last set tonight to get the requisite volume

    Bench: the 2nd rep of each set was quite slow. I need to work on keeping a strong bridge even after a heavy rep.

    Deadlift: wow, was that one really slow at the top. No hitch, though, so it counts!

    Thanks! I'm paying for it today, though.

    Sun 1/22/17 (L)

    squat: 2x5x305
    press: 192x4 (missed 5th); then 2x5x185
    bw chins: 10/10/10/8/8/4

    I've been guilty of overreaching a bit on the 5 rep press too, I think. My 5rm for one set is 194, so I'm backing off a few pounds and inching it up from there. The press on this variation of HLM isn't as central as bench is.

    W 1/25/17 (M)

    squat: 3x5x335 (back down from 340 because of squat overreach)
    pause bench: 3x5x252.5
    rdl: 2x8x365

    The RDLs were very tough. I don't think I'm fully recovered from Friday's deadlift yet.

    Squat: 1x405 (hit the pins on the 2nd rep trying to favor my right knee)
    bench: 3x5x275
    no deadlift; knee pain

    My screwed up right knee is really starting to affect things. I have my consult in 1 week and hope to move quickly to resolve the issue. Even biking and stairs are becoming a problem.
