    Light Day.

    Squat: 70 x 5 (paused); 120 x 3; 160 x 1; 189 x 5 x 2; 105 x 5 (paused)
    Bench: 45 x 5; 95 x 3; 135 x 1; 156 x 1; 165 x 1; 109 x 8 x 2. 165 was easy peasy. 21 lbs shy of new PR.
    Prowler: 45 x 6 x 2

    On my journey back from the %$@%+ shutdown I'm shy of prs in the following categories: Dead 36 lbs., Squat 58 lbs., Bench 21 lbs., Press 24 lbs. I will certainly wipe those out before the end of the year if I don't get wiped out.

    Good luck in your journey. I read in your log back in February I think you were pulling 360 and benching 175. Squatting in the 230's.

    Those are good. Too bad about the layoff but what ya gonna do other than keep on keeping on. Right?


    Be glad that you can at least do all the lifts. Very bad joint pain when trying to ohp.

    I'm gonna try Example 21-1: 3-In-2 Program, No Presses (p. 375). The Aasgaard Company. Kindle Edition. But do it twice a week.

    My prs for singles before mid March were as follows: Dead, 375; Squat, 267.5; Bench, 185; OHP, 128.

    I'm sorry about your shoulders. How much does that problem affect your squat? I can do OHP but not a straight bar squat.

    I'm glad to be alive but aging does have its problems.

    I heard that!!

    Sometimes on the squat I can get in position and other times the shoulders complain too much, I am determined to do them though. It's something that people have to deal with though as there is also a program in Barbell Rx for those who cannot do squats and the overhead press.

    Deadlift-Bench Specialist Program (4D) The Barbell Prescription: Strength Training for Life After 40 (p. 388). The Aasgaard Company. Kindle Edition.

    That's kinda what I've been doing while working into the squats when I have time. But doing rows instead of lat pulldowns.

    Heavy Day of HLM

    Squat: 70 x 5 (pause); 160 x 3; 190 x 1; 210 x 1; 189 x 3 x 2 My squats are fairly consistently to depth. The improvement is nice.
    Bench: 45 x 5; 95 x 3; 135 x 1; 153.5 x 3; 137 x 5 x 2 Fairly easy.
    Dead: 135 x 3; 225 x 2; 315 x 1; 345 x 0; 276 x 5 A form error I thought I had conquered crept in. I'm not a happy camper. No excuses but there no time for goofs when we are on a tight schedule.
