    Week 8
    15Feb2019

    Intensity:
    Squat:330x5
    Bench:235x5
    Clean: 152.5x3x4

    My back was too shot to pull another set of cleans. So I backed off. The last rep of 330 was a grind. I think I will be able to get 2 more weeks of doing 5x1, then I'll switch to 3x2. On bench I'm already ready to make the 3x2 transition. We will see though. I want to actually fail a set of 5 before I change anything.

    Actually, after reading Understanding the Texas Method Intensity Day | Andy Baker I think I am going to switch to triples this coming Friday. It makes sense that its better to catch the transition from 5rm to 3rm before failure.

    Week 9
    18Feb2019

    Volume:
    Squat: 300x5x5
    Bench: 215x5x5
    Pull-ups: AMRAPx3

    Finally figured out how to use my belt. I cannot believe how easy 300 felt just putting on a belt. I am an idiot for not switching beforehand.

    My lack of belted training has me thinking I cut my LP short by a bit. Not by much, I'm sticking to the TM for now. It just has me thinking. So if someone reads this. Use a belt.

    Nice work implementing your belt. Now those intensity days won't be so daunting will they?

    Volume day is usually more daunting

    Squat: 335x5

    Benches were supposed to be two triples, but it didn't happen tonight. I didn't eat enough past couple days.

    I got sick. Skipped Intensity day on the previous friday. Did not eat enough all weekend. So not a real volume day. I'll probably repeat this workout next week.

    Week 12:

    11 March 2019

    Volume:
    Squat: 45x10, 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x2, 295x1, 315x5x3, 315x4
    Bench: 45x10, 95x5, 135x5, 185x3, 205x5x3

    Was not in the best state to perform tonight. I was underfed, and feeling weak. I took those reps to failure tonight on squat. Maybe I should have gone for a 5th set on squats, but I decided against it (pussy).
    Eating enough has been the hardest part for me.

    Recovery:
    Squat: 45x5, 135x5, 185x5, 225x2, 255x5x2
    Press: 45x5, 75x5, 115x3, 135x5x3
    Deadlift: 135x5, 225x5, 315x4, 365x1, 395x5

    Week 13:

    18 March 2019

    I've done a terrible job of being consistent the past 3 weeks, and terrible job of managing recovery. Getting back on track this week with a 10% reset, and going forward stronger this time. I've been meaning to set my squat stance a bit wider/bring my bench grip a bit more narrow. This is a good time to do it. I am also going to add in some very light conditioning on Tuesdays only.

    Volume:
    Squat: 285x5x5
    Bench:205x5x5

    19 March 2019
    Conditioning:
    HIITx15mins
    Pull-ups: AMRAP in 7 mins=29
    Abz: AMRAP in 7 mins=didn't count

    20 March 2019
    Recovery:
    Squat: 225x5x2
    Press: 135x5x3
    Deadlift: 405x5

    22 March 2019
    Intensity:
    Squat: 320x5
