    Squat - 260x5x3
    Deadlift - 345x1x5
    Chin Up - bw 2, green band 4,4

    Bar speed on the squat wasn't bad. I used my belt on the deadlift today despite considering not doing so. It was difficult but I was able to move the bar. I think next week I'll move up to 355 to the last highest success I had before the fails at 360. I will be holding my squat weight, with the exception of the singles, where they are until my 5 rep on the deadlift is 60 lbs heaver than the 5 rep on the squat, or until I hit 380 for five on the deadlift the squat will not be increased. Chin up was horrible but haven't done it in probably three weeks so to be expected.

    Bench - 235 3,3,2 *second triple fail at this weight
    Press - 130x5x3

    I thought I had bench, but even with a pretty big rest after the second set, didn't really feel fully recovered, went anyway. Last rep got about half way, tried to grind it out but it came back down onto the safeties. On the press my bar speed was fairly decent.

    Squat - 350 2, 335x2x3
    RDL - 295x3x5

    Attempted 350 for a triple. Got two reps in but the last one didn't want to make it up and had to use the safeties. dropped down to 335 to get some triples in. After the fail, 335 was a tough lift. RDL went fairly well. Felt heavy but not in danger of a fail and I was only really taking 3 minute rests.

    Press - 155x3x3
    Bench - 205x5x3

    Passed the press which I was happy about. Bar speed on the bench was alright but still not great.

    No workout on the 11th as I was flying to Bangalore India for work.
    10/14/2019 did a limited workout with incline bench and dumb bells in the hotel, heaviest dumb bell was 20 kg, so I was mostly doing 20 rep stuff.
    10/15/2019 Used the smith machine as that was my only option for squats and I'm not sure of the weight but I had almost every weight in the hotel gym thrown on it. Smith machines suck.

    Bench - 245x3x1
    Press - 135x5x3

    Didn't retest the bench one rep I had since I lost so many workout days traveling. Easily handled the workout so next time around, I'll attempt at 252.5 or 255 at the one rep. Bar speed on the press was decent.

    10/22/2019

    Squat - 3x1x355
    RDL - 295x3x5

    First set of singles on the squat. I really could have gone 360 or 365 as at 355 a single wasn't really all that bad. First time doing singles so I was conservative. RDL went well.

    Press - 165 1,1,0 * first fail at this weight
    Bench - 205x5x3

    Got the first two singles on the Press, but failed on the third. The first two were very slow. Think I will take more rest between them next time. The bench bar speed was crap. Really the last set felt way to hard for what this workout was supposed to be. I'll chalk that up to having been on international travel over a week.

    10# jump two weeks after 155# press? Way too big. I'm at roughly the same strength on OH press, and my jumps are now at 2#, and even then it is pushing it.

    My last single on the press was 160 and it was not a hard pass. I will be doing 2.5 lbs jumps once I pass it. That 155 was a triple. I'm doing volume cycling of week 1 3x5, week 2 3x3, week 3 3x1, each with it's own weight that move up independently. The only major lift I'm not doing this cycle on is the deadlift.

    Squat - 260x5x3
    Deadlift - 345 1, waited 6 minutes 1, waited 6 minues 315 1, 225x1x3

    So once again, big fail on the deadlift at a weight that two weeks ago I was able to do 5 reps on. Could only muster one, wanted to see if it might have been a fluke so waited 6 minutes attempted again, got one but couldn't do a second, took it down to 315, was only able to get one. WTF. Threw the 45s off to 225 to just get some minimum volume and knocked out three but then figured it was time to call it. I guess I'm taking it down to 315 and building back up. I'm just surprised this lift is so fucked when all of my other ones aren't really all that bad. I'm not sure if deadlift is just the first lift to get fucked as the others slowely get fucked or what...

    Bench - 225 3, 205 3,3
    Press - 135 3, 115 3,3

    The weight of the bar or something was off or something was very wrong at this gym. That 225 was more difficult than 235 for me in the past. I did just get into a business trip after some morning flights, but this was just complete fubar. Even the OHP where I can do my sets of 5 at 145, 135 felt like maxing out on a triple. Called it after doing 115 for three two times as I had no bar speed.

    (took the rest of this week off as I was traveling and lost all motivation after Monday)
    11/4/2019

    Bench - 225 5,4 215 5 *2nd fail at this weight
    Press - 135x5x3

    Not bad like the disaster last week. I was able to do 225 for the first set, second lost steam on the 5th rep, dropped to 215 to make sure I got 5 reps on the last set for volume. The press was as it should have been, where my bar speed was not bad and I wasn't dying completing it.

    11/5/2019

    Squat - 315x3x5
    RDL - 285x3x5

    Squat was difficult but not killer. However here it will stay until I get the DL at least 70 lbs heavier or to 385 before I'll let squat start moving again. RDL didn't feel too bad.

    11/7/2019

    Press - 145 5,5,4
    Bench - 205x5x3

    I was a little disappointed that I didn't put 145 behind me, but the last rep on the second set was near max so even with 10 minutes of rest that third set, 5 wasn't going to happen. On the bench, saw improved bar speed so I was happy with it.

    11/8/2019

    Squat - 265x5x3
    Deadlift - 335x1x5, 305x1x5

    I have decided I am adding a backup set to deadlifts where I use staps after the heavy set. 335 was difficult so I'm glad I didn't try to make it heavier. Squat had decent bar speed.

    11/11/2019

    Bench - 235 3,3,2 * second fail at this weight
    Press - 135x5x3

    First set went alright. Had to dig deep for three on the second. Last set, that third rep was a hard fail. On the press, the workout went well and had improved bar speed at the weight.

    Squat - 335x3x3
    RDL - 290x3x5

    I think I could have gone heavier on the squat, but the workout was still challenging. The max I'm going to go with triples is 345 with my current hold anyway. RDL went pretty good. I might go and stick with 285 and start uping the number of reps vs increasing weight.
