    Lame.

    Squat: 335x5, 2

    Pulled R quad set 2. Can't even airsquat right now. Everything hurts to do right now. Did benches only after this.

    275x5x3

    These should have been rock-solid, but leg-drive was absent due to bad quad.

    Getting old is stupid.

    LP v2.0, W2D3

    Squat: 135x5x3

    Like squatting through a charlie-horse. A good weight for today.

    Press: 195x5, 3

    Sending this to intermediate programming immediately.

    Deadlift: 225x5x3

    That quad hurts, but this was doable without major issues.

    Squat: 185x5x3


    +50, and as you'll see, squat was my lightest lift of the day. Quad felt like a charlie-horse but it was all doable. Think 225 is in order for Tuesday probably.

    Press: 227.5x2 (2PR!) Video at Login • Instagram

    Upper body stuff is feeling pretty much good to go at this point, at least for short sets. So I chased down a 2PR today. Intermediate programming for upper body lifts inbound while squat/DL LP continue.

    Deadlift: 275x5x3

    These were no problem; quad didn't even bark at me once. Gonna slow-roll these anyway; probably hit 315 for sets across on Tuesday.

    Bench: 295x5

    Treating it like a TM ID today.

    Squat: 225x5x3


    Some lower back fatigue here; I need to rebuild work capacity. No screams from my quad or anything else.

    Deadlift: 315x5x3

    Easy enough; same fatigue issue. Planning 365 for Thursday, and will probably scale back to 2 sets.

    Bench and Press: Not conducted

    Right now I've got a reverse-TM idea in my mind for the upper body lifts. I did intensity day on Sunday; I'll do volume day on Thursday. I still have to think about what to do Tuesday. Light day? 2x5 of each maybe, at an offset % of ID?

    Quad's feeling great. Nevertheless think I'll slow down and do 295 next session, then 315.

    Bench: 245x5x5

    Putting in work.

    Press: 170x5, 10, 10 (10PR!)

    I wanted 25 reps at 170 and got them. But I didn't want to spend forever getting them, and I knew I'd low-balled the weight. I also knew my best recorded set of 10 was 155. So I took 170 for a ride, rested, and then did it again. Bodybuilder trix, boyz.

    DL: 365x5x2

    +50, dropped a set. Next: Drop another set and do 385, let my system readapt, try not to get hurt.

    Barely conducted


    Civil unrest has led to my activation. Didn't lift at all on scheduled day. Today I went in for a bench press workshop and got some good form tips, but then didn't actually move any weight.

    Squat: 365x1, 405x1

    I was in utes and boots, no gear. Didn't want to struggle-bus through 315x5x3 wearing my sproingy combat boots and my non-stretch uniform pants. So I worked singles up to see how they felt. 405 came up fast and pain-free, and felt nice and stable. I think I've healed. Still plan to do 315 for sets across in my regular lifting clothes; don't know when that will be. First people gotta stop throwing bricks and setting things on fire, I guess.

    ????

    Still activated. Slipped into the gym at 1900 with Tim and he had a great session (see novice section). My training was no good.

    Squat: 365x1, 405x1, 425x1

    Got some exposure to heavier weights which is what I wanted.

    Bench: 225x1, 315x0

    Warmed up bench and was feeling okay, but as soon as I unracked 315 I immediately re-racked it. Everything from heels to hiccups felt wrong.

    I'm spending hours a day on my but on the road; I've put hundreds of miles in this week and diet is hamburgers in parking lots. I'll see how I feel after optempo slows.

    PARADIGM SHIFT

    Civil unrest activation was followed by additional duties, which involved driving many hundreds of miles. I LP'd my chode-against-bucket-seat and hit new maxes or something. But here's the bigger news:

    I've been working on an accessions packet for return to Active Duty, and the board results came back. I made it. God is good.

    That means, among many other things, that I've got to do some different training. After looking at a few options, I decided on Andy Baker's powerbuilding program.

    KSC+ Powerbuilding, W1D1

    There's a sample template in the program which wisely says it's not a prescription for any specific lifter, but ... for day 1, I just did what's on the page. I'll figure out if it's appropriate as written before using Baker's tips for modifying.

    Bench: 255x8x3

    A good pick for load.

    Dumbbell Bench: 95x12, 80x12, 65x12

    I could tell by my second set of these that Baker's program is going to bring back some work capacity I've lost in the last year. Grueling.

    Dips: Density (1 min rest, 30 reps total): 12, 8, 6, 4

    For progression on these, step one will be to eliminate that 4th set by rolling into the other three.

    Barbell Curls: 65x12, 55x12, 45x12

    Thought I was being overly conservative on this loading scheme. Much harder than expected.

    Dumbbell Hammer Curls: 20x8, 15x8, 10x8

    Just chasing the pump at this point.

    Day one in the bag. Tomorrow I think I've got sets of 8 on the DL. Eww.

    Started lighter than perhaps necessary. Still good volume at a non-negligible weight. Needed this in my life.

    Front Squat: 135x8x3

    I suck at front squat. Kept it at 135 to learn the motion. When these come around again, maybe 185? Or maybe 155. I am not adapted to this movement.

    Air Force Sit-up: 20, 10

    This program has abz-work. Did the AF variant rather than Army since it targets Dem Abz without all the BS of the standard Army model.

    RDL: 155x8x3

    Needed something for hamstring isolation; this worked okay. Load will be higher next week.
