    Squats are no fun anymore. Considering a drop to one top set of 3 next week for squats, as I barely got my last rep at 315.

    BW 201lb

    Squat: 260lb 2x5 (last week's should have also been 2 sets, not three, and I documented wrong)
    Press: 140lb 3x3 PR
    Power Snatch: 120lb 6x2

    Working on 3 hours of sleep after being up for 28 hours, so I'm surprised how well today went.

    Monday, HLM W8D1
    BW: 199lb

    Squat: 325lb 1x3 PR; 305lb 3x3
    CGBP: 210lb 4x5
    Power Clean: 170lb 5x2 PR

    Felt like shit today, but got a squat PR, so at least I've got that going for me. The sets at 305 felt significantly harder than the 325, so I think the 325 was close to a true 3RM. It was super grindy.

    Current plan is to taper down this month to make 1RM PRs in the last week of July, then start GGW the next week. My August schedule will be pretty demanding, so it will be nice to have the first 3 week deload phase of GGW line up with that. Hoping to PR at 345 on squat, 245 on bench, 410 on deadlift, and 150 on OHP.

    Hey man - hell of a grind on that 3rd rep...way to stick with it. One thing you may want to check on is depth though. I am an habitual depth cheater...and hate myself for it it could be the lighting/angle/shorts...but not sure if you got to depth on those. Just something to watch out for.

    Carry on and great work in general!

    That has been bothering me, but I think it's the camera. Wide angle lens, bad viewing angle, etc. Definitely could be shallow though, especially the second rep in that vid. I've done vids with a regular lens, where unfortunately all you can see is hip and knee at the bottom, and they look on par. I'm planning to get another vid next week at 330 with a regular lens.

    Thanks for the feedback!
