    Correction to my July 17 workout, my squat AMRAP was 295x8.

    July 24

    Comp Squat: 305x3x2, 305x2 @9
    Comp Bench: 240x4x4, 240x6 @8.5

    July 26

    Comp Deadlift: 365x4x2, 365x3 @9
    Comp Bench: 225x6x4

    This week is carrying a lot of fatigue from last week. Everything feels heavier than it should, but then again, maybe it feels exactly as heavy as it should since I am fatigued.

    July 31

    Comp Squat: 315x3x2, 315x5
    Comp Bench: 250x3x4, 250x5

    Lats and bieps.

    Left shoulder was still feeling wonky on bench while unracking and during some descents. Not exactly painful, but uncomfortable. Same feeling I get putting on or taking off a t-shirt and raising my shoulder in that way, or laying on it in bed.

    August 5

    Comp Squat: 335x2 @7.5
    Comp Bench: 230x5x4
    Comp Deadlift: 385x3x2, 385x4 @8

    Rough week and missed a training session. A lot of travel and working 12-13 hour days photographing movie stuff. Left shoulder still feeling funky on bench. It doesn't hurt while pressing, but feels weird unracking and sometimes locking out. This has been ongoing ever since that one day I was feeling really fatigued. I must have done something weird that day that screwed up my shoulder.

    2 weeks out and feeling a little demotivated--not because of training, but just kinda feeling burned out in general.

    Fuck. I re-injured my left anterior hip right where the quad tendon is. It's the same exact spot I injured before my meet back in January. And guess how I fucking did it? Bench pressing. Yep. Must have been hard leg drive or arching really hard. Who fucking knows. We'll see how it affects my deadlifts and squats this week.

    Felt tired. Had shit sleep the night before and napped all day to try to get energy to train. Bench felt heavy due to fatigue.

    Comp Squat: 295x5x3
    Comp Bench: 240x5x4

    Squat started to aggravate that old hip injury I sustained back on December 31. It doesn't hurt to squat, but it's the same pain and same area that I sustained after that injury. It's tight and hurts like hell if I extend my hips by squeezing my glutes, or by raising my knees and going into flexion. The difference this time is that I can squat without pain unless I extend my hips hard at the top of the squat. Hurt during bench set up, too, because of hip extension.

    August 20, Meet Day

    Squats: 157.5kg/347lbs, 167.5kg/369lbs, 182.5kg/402lbs

    Bench: 125kg/275lbs, 132.5kg/292lbs, 140kg/308lbs (missed)

    Deadlift: 195kg/430lbs, 210kg/463lbs, 230kg/507lbs

    I knew when I benched my second attempt that I only had 5kg/11lbs left in me, but everyone said my second moved "fast" and kept egging me on and I made the mistake of not going by what I knew. Oh well. 1201lbs is a 31lb total PR, which is way less than what I wanted for this meet, but given my shit sleep and crappy health situation, any PR is a success.
