    Squat: 365x5x3


    A sets across PR, which is satisfying though it doesn't go in the book (my best performance at 15 reps is 375 I think?). Didn't want to go at all today; still sore from last week. Got 3x5@85% though, so that should at least amount to standing still, or maybe small forward progress.

    Bench: 255x6x3 (V18 PR)

    All comp pause, all flew up without difficulty. Wanted a day of light benching, succeeded.

    T = 10065
    T W3Aug = 24050 (Goal met, with one workout left this week)

    BN: 335x2 (2PR!)


    My only working set today. Badly pressed for time.

    T=670

    T W4Aug = 670

    Think I'm going to run T to end of Aug and count it as week 4, rather than have a half-week since it's a 31-day month.

    GIP W8D1.2

    SQ: 345x5x3, 345x2 (Hamstring tweak)


    Three injuries on squat in 12 months, all 3 at 345 lbs, all three at times when 345 was a light-day or volume-day weight, and ought not to have been challenging. Think I'm gonna start skipping this weight and going straight from 340 to 347.5.

    BN: 345x1 (PR!) Video at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “The tale of 345: Same weight, two outcomes. Squat: An injury. Bench: 345x1 PR. SDG #22000lbs4johnson #22miles4johnson #teamssoc…”

    Wasn't supposed to be intensity bench today, but I was so pissed at 345lbs that I threw it on the bench bar and pushed out Friday's intended single.

    Curls: 82.5x6x3

    Rotating rep ranges working just fine right now. This was easy. I'm thinking 85x4x3, then back to 10s for 77.5x10x3, if it works out.

    So yay, I'm in injury recovery mode again. I pray it's short.

    I have had so many reoccurring injuries while performing squats, that I stopped doing them for a while. I have quit deadlift too for a while.
    I've replaced squats with leg press, and light day is dumbbell lunges.
    Plan is to get over 650lbs on leg press for 5 reps then I'll start reintroducing squats and deadlifts.
    So bloody tired of resetting the weight on squats due to injury, it was feeling more like constant failure than progress, so I just changed the exercise.

    Getting injured while lifting sucks hard. I hope it's a quick recovery.

    It's funny. All my squat tweaks always come in the warmups. Tweaked my back warming up with 275 6 weeks ago and still rehabbing that lift and DL. Shoulder tweaked 2 months ago in my sleep? Still cant press much more than 135 without pain. Oh well, just got to carry on.

    Chris and Pos: Injury is stupid. We shuold all just agree never to gt injured, and be done with it. :P

    Seriously though: I'm feeling much better now, and DL was a PR today which ought not to have happened if my hammy was truly bad. I think I may be able to squat normally on Friday. I'll know before the warmup's done.

    Grip strength was the limiter here. I'm working through some possible plans to address this. Structurally though, this was easy.

    Press: 205x2x3 (V6 PR!)

    Rotating rep ranges still moving for now.

    Row: 225x5x2

    Just because.

    A good day.

    Glad that rectified itself quickly.

    You and me both man. Monday morning (day of) it was intolerable to squat the 45lb bar after my bench work. Monday afternoon it hurt just walking around. Tuesday I want to the gym with my wife, and I squatted/deadlifted her weights for sets of 10 while she rested (she didn't go higher than 75lbs squat, 135 DL). This morning, some soreness in the warmup but it was absent by the time I hit 315.

    I attribute it to the Lord's mercy.
