    Holiday Week: Whatever the Feelz Say. Last Lift of 2019.

    Intensity Bench: 315x1, 335x1, 355x1 (PR!) (Crappy quality video at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “Bench: 355x1. PR! Video is trash as I explain here but still kinda visible-ish. :'( God is good. #22000lbs4johnson #22miles4johnson…”


    Got the lift. Forgot my tripod. Video barely shows anything, but it's good enough to measure bar speed.

    More bench: 225x10x3

    Rows: 260x4x3 (V12 PR), 225x8x3

    Squats: 365x1, 405x1

    Curls: 75x10x2


    Just trying to hit my Tonnage target for the last week of December.

    First lift of 2020.

    Volume Bench: 295x5x5 (V25 PR)

    Bench seems to be moving along with little trouble; this has always been the case for me. Squats are hard. Bench is just the Art of Bro.

    Volume-ish Squat: 365x8 (8PR!), 7, 2 Video of top set and commentary at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “Squat 365x8 (8PR!). And so begins 2020. SDG #22000lbs4johnson #22miles4johnson #weights #wendler531 #teamssoc #texasmethod…”

    Well, I decided to pop a long-set PR for 8, and got it. The plan after that was to get 25 total reps to reach traditional "volume day" level. The scheme was going to be 8, 7, 6, 4. But on set 3, I got through rep 2 and was feeling some weirdness in the right knee and left adductor, so I just racked it. Guess I'm easing into squats this year.

    Rows: 265x2x3 (V6 PR!)

    These have been coming up with minimal drama. We'll see how they do. Next row-progression is supposed to be 255x8x3. That's ... kinda heavy, for me at least.

    Anyway ... mostly got done what I planned, and I'm telescoping Week 1 of the year into 8 days, ending on Friday 10 Jan. I'm also going to log training weeks rather than calendar weeks for Tonnage, at least for Jan. So: Week 1 will go until 10 Jan, and the pedants can suck it.

    Press Progression

    Press: 202.5x4x3 (V12 PR!)


    Press progression is still moving. Yay!

    Deadlift warmup: Singles up to 455

    Feel okay. Little wobbly in the hamstrings. I think a 5PR may be doable Wednesday on schedule, though I may opt for volume deadlift (405x8x3 perhaps) instead.

    Deadlift: 465x4, 1 (4PR!) Video at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “465x4. 4PR! Hands are fatigued. Tried for 5 but last rep came out of my widdle handz. SDG! #22000lbs4johnson #22miles4johnson #teamssoc…”


    My body had 5 reps, my hands didn't. My hands felt fatigued the minute I hit my last warmup single at 445. So ... singles up to 455 yesterday, after heavyish row progression two days prior to that, now seems a mistake.

    Anyway ... I'm going to transition to triples anyway. Next heavy deadlift session: 470x3, then a back-off triple. And definitely insert a volume deadlift next week instead of ID. Had a good run: 450x5, 455x5, 460x5, 500x1 for last few DL IDs; and even today was a PR. So I'll abandon greed, listen to my tired old bones, and start doing TM run-out down to singles across.

    Intensity Bench and Squat. Top set videos at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “Intensity Day Double Play: Bench 325x5 (5PR!) Squat 425x3 (3PR!) SDG #22000lbs4johnson #22miles4johnson #weights #wendler531 #teamssoc…”

    Bench: 325x5 (5PR!)

    Squat: 425x3 (3PR!)


    A good day; I'm pleased.

    Bench: Rep 5 I lost elbow tightness; you can see the wobble. Right olecranon process is tender to the touch again, like it was for many weeks of 2019. Don't know if the wobble caused the tenderness, or the tenderness caused the wobble.

    Squat: Ugh, these look like crap. Right now my body and mind are scared of 5-rep sets, so instead of loading 410 and making another go at a 5PR, I stacked the 425 and hit a triple PR.

    Two lifts, two PRs; no complaints really.

    10s Week


    Conducted Saturday Jan 11

    Bench: 250x10x3

    Elbow soreness continues. By third set, I was warm enough all over that it wasn't bothering me.

    Rows: 255x8x3

    Row progression continues.

    Hey, Geoff. Really glad you're staying at it consistently, which is better than I can say for myself. I lost consistency nlate June or early July, but back at it as of last week (and some failed attempts to restart between).

    Elbow issue sucks, but it didn't stop you from getting some great volume in with bench. Any clue what the issue is and what can be done beyond working through it?

    Did I se a bit ago you got a SS bar? If so, how do you like it and how does it compare to an Ohio power bar like Nikki had? I'm looking at a new bar this year and would love to know what you think of them.

    Adam! Good to see you back on it. Keep at it, getting a bit better each time. You've got loads of progress in front of you.

    Yeah, got the SS bar. I like it a lot. The knurling and friction point and overall stability is great. With the new bar, I've gotten my bench 5rm from 315 to 325, and a top single at 355. Deadlift 5rm from 445 to 460, and a top single at 500. Squat hasn't gotten a full break-in, yet, but see below. Grip for deadlift is beastly: Great friction without the dagger-point-knurl that digs into your hands and leaves skin behind.

    Supposed to be Squat 10s, but I didn't have it in my heart to stand under a barbell that long. So of course I did singles ... ahem.

    Squat: 405x1, 425x1, 445x1 (1PR!) Video at Geoffrey Bischoff on Instagram: “445x1. PR! That boosts me into the 1300lb club. Woot. Background: I lacked the moral courage to do volume squats today, so I ran singles…”

    I clock it at 3.6 seconds. I briefly considered bumping up to 455, but decided against.

    That was a pretty awesome 445. It looked pretty solid and like you had more in you, though I can see leaving 455 for another day.

    Thanks for the input on the bar. Mine isn't bad, but was made with CrossFit and its many cleans and snatches in mind, impacting lurking spacing and coarseness. I like it, but have felt better now and want better.
