    Comeback LP, W2D1

    Squat: 305x5x3

    Bench: 255x5x3

    Deadlift: 305x5


    Still moving along. I wish I had lost less strength than I have during 2020, but it is what it is. Briefly I had fooled myself into thinking I hadn't lost *that* much strength, but video evidence now indicates I'd been cheating depth on squats for some time before Coach called me on it. My squat loads are appropriate. My deadlift load feels too light, but given how challenging squats are, I'm fine with it.

    EZPZ. Except for squats. Squats are challenging at all these weights.

    Mike: Thanks, brother. I scoped your log a bit recently, and it looks like you've found a decent rhythm yourself. 2/wk squat and pull work with real barbells is good stuff. Bodyweight-wise, seems like you're doing more with less. That's good stuff, too.

    Comeback LP, W2D3

    Squat: 315x5x3

    Bench: 265x5x3


    +10. Getting within a reasonable percentage of my best 3x5 performances. The difference here: My elbows don't hurt. That's a real blessing.

    Chins: AMRAPx4. Results: 8, 5, 5, 5

    I hate chins. I do these super-strict, though, so every rep counted is all the way UP, all the way DOWN, *pause*, repeat.

    Squats are feeling solid. 315 felt better than 310. I really want to be hitting 400+ for reps right now, but I'm being patient.

    Comeback LP, W3D1.5

    Conditioning: 1 mile movement. Quarter-mile splits: Run/Walk/Run/Walk

    Run splits: 2:20, 1:56. Total: 11:35


    Slow, but not as slow or as painful as I expected considering I think it may have been February last time I ran.

    Comeback LP, W3D2

    Squat: 325x5x3


    Been working on knee slide, but cue changed: On bottom part of descent, "Ass Back" is my cue right now. "Freeze knees" wasn't working, but "ass back" gets the knees to mostly stabilize.

    Chins: 4xAMRAP. Result: 9, 6, 5, 5

    +2 to chin-up volume; now 25.

    Bench: 270x5, 5, 6

    Supposed to be sets across but got another bonus rep because I can't count.

    Comeback LP, W3D2.5

    Conditioning: 1 mile movement. Quarter mile splits: Walk/Run/Walk/Run


    Run splits: 1:59, 1:47. Total: 10:39

    Splits cut 21s, 9s. Total cut 56s. A sharp improvement; probably won't have any more improvements this drastic on my 400m splits.

    I did this at night as soon as I got home from the gym. I was still warm, but not yet sore. Worked out well.

    starting strength coach development program
    itsssme: Thanks for your kind words. I'm getting into a groove again finally, but all my lifts right now are at significantly reduced loads. Since the Army's always prioritized upper-body strength, my bench and press are better by percentage than my squats and deads; always have been. Pre-shutdown I had a bench at 365 and press at 240; I couldn't even sniff those numbers right now. In pounds, of course, lol ... Having a coach right now is making all the difference in getting back up to strength.

    Comeback LP, W3D3

    Squat: 330x5x3

    Press: 170x5x3

    Deadlift: 335x5


    I am very happy with squat quality right now. I dread every set of squats, from the empty bar up through working weight, but the videos are looking good and I'm getting the volume in.

    Presses still feel like poop, but video shows good speed.

    Deadlifts are still super-light, I'm not even chalking or belting right now. But the form is dialed in (coach called it "robotic" a couple sessions back, "same every time," so that's good), and I've got high hopes for coming weeks.
