    Ha! I wish it was a more meaningful rep range but I gotta take what I can ...

    Just getting by ...

    Deadlift: 395x5, 365x5


    Felt more like 695 ... it's like working out in the stream of a blowdryer right now.

    T-Bar Rows: 45x10, 70x10, 90x10, 115x10x3

    Dumbbell stuff: Hammer Curl Density, Triceps Overhead


    The dumbbell stuff felt good on my elbows after the bit of tendinitis I built up in WA.

    Today's session put the seed of a programming idea in my head. I won't mention it explicitly yet until it's fleshed out.

    Still getting by ...

    Squat: 375x1

    Bench: 225x18


    Still so sluggish right now. And though I'm getting adequate sleep and food, I feel sore and tired all the time.

    I have a suspicion. Tim reported similar when he got back from Texas awhile back, and we were in close contact on numerous occasions. Then when I went to WA, Tim reported from AZ that he was desperately ill. I now think I've got whatever Tim had, and that I'm just in the tired-and-sore stage.

    Since I go on Army duty tomorrow, I'm required to report this, and they're probably going to give me a mandatory Rona test. More to follow.

    Hope you don't have the Rona brother!
    We have had a decent amount of cases here and work and those that were symptomatic did report sluggishness.

    Squat 280x5x3

    Press 95x20, 12, 8; 150x5


    Because reasons.

    Deadlift 300x5

    So ... NOT the Rona, according to the test I took. And I'm no longer sharting or getting dizzy when I stand for longer than 5 minutes so I've got that going for me. Guess I'm just a weak pu$$y.

    Finally getting coached

    So I finally got a coach, maybe he can fix what's broken.

    Test Workout

    Squat: 315x5

    Press: 175x5

    Bench: 265x5

    Deadlift: 365x5


    The assignment was a set of fahve at RPE8; these got close. But my form has drifted something fierce. Coach feedback summary: Squats were a couple inches high, but otherwise nearly model-perfect. Press and bench looked good. Deadlift, I've started conflating steps 4 and 5 of set-up, and my eye-gaze is everywhere. LP is coming my way, and at lighter weights than expected.

    Comeback LP, W1D1 (Conducted Sunday Aug 9)

    Squat: 275x5x3

    Depth is under control at this weight. Side benefit: Some quad pain that's been lingering has now greatly diminished, by reaching correct depth.

    Press: 175x5x3

    Mechanically good, but my press strength has flagged, and set 3 was RPE 9+. We're dropping weight off of this one to work back up.

    Deadlift: 275x5

    Took a whole plate off of this. That's a hard pill to swallow. But there's now a clear delineation between step 4 and 5 of setup, and eye gaze is normalized. Now, it appears I'm pulling *behind* mid-foot on these. Higher loads will prevent that by necessity, but that's something to work on.

    Nice work and glad you're not ailing of the Rona!

    Who is your coach?

    Mike, it's a guy who has written articles for this website before, and has a lot of valuable experience. But he works for the competition now (BLOC), so I probably shouldn't mention him here.

    Comeback LP, W1D2

    Squat: 285x5x3

    Bench: 250x5x3

    Deadlift: 285x5


    Really doing a form clinic on these. The loads are not painfully heavy, but the squats are heavier than expected, leading me to believe that I really have been cheating depth for awhile. Filming keeps me honest.

    starting strength coach development program
    Comeback LP, W1D3 (Conducted 14 Aug)

    Squat: 295x5x3

    Press: 155x5x3

    Deadlift: 295x5


    Form is really dialing in. Squat feels like RPE 8+, but video looks more like RPE 5+; I'm out of practice and need more volume at these weights. Press is getting back in stride; I felt really dominant at 155.
