    15/11/2021 - Recovery

    Squat: 112.5kg x 2 x 5
    Bench: 61kg x 3 x 5
    Chinups: 3 x AMRAP

    Legs are pretty torched from the last Volume day.

    17/11/2021 - Intensity

    Squat: 155kg x 1 x 5 - I started squatting inside of a combo rack and the lack of a mirror in front of me is going to require some getting used to. This set was a bit definitely a bit grindy but okay still. I am debating switching to 2 x 3 next session but I can't really gauge whether it's time for that yet. PPST says that one should make the switch to the next rep scheme on the intensity day (e.g. from 1 x 5 to 2 x 3 to 3 x 2 to 5 x 1 etc... on the squat) before one first fails on it. IDK.
    Press: 62.5kg x 1 x 5 - a lot easier than expected, volume definitely helps, glad I made a 2.5kg instead of a 1kg jump here
    Deadlift: 165kg x 1 x 2, 165kg x 1 x 1 - didn't go too well - it was supposed to be a set of 5 but was surprisingly hard for some reason. I had no chalk and I ate too much before the session, that combined with this week's poor recovery is what I think got to me. I will try this weight for a set of 5 again next intensity day, if it moves poorly I will instead switch to triples on deadlift intensity

    24/11/2021 - Intensity

    Squat: 157.5kg x 1 x 5 - Every Intensity session I think that I won't be able to grind out a set of five, yet every time I do. I have no idea how to gauge whether to transition down to triples.
    Bench: 77.5kg x 1 x 5, 80kg x 1 x 5, 82.5kg x 1 x 4 - was bored after the first programmed set, so I did two extra ones, and to my surprise they sort of flew. Next session will be a 2.5kg increase instead of a 1kg one, as it seems to be doing better than before for some reason.
    Deadlift: 165kg x 2 x 3 - I screwed up here, in hindsight I probably could've done five reps on the first set, instead I settled for 3 so after that I did another triple. As per the program after the first triple I should've done AMRAP @ 80-90%. Hope it's not a big deal.

    01/12/2021 - Intensity

    Squat: 160kg x 1 x 4, 160kg x 1 x 3 - Was aiming for a single set of 5 but couldn't manage more than 4 on the first set. So I did another triple after that, however even the last rep there was quite a grind. Guess this marks the transition to triples on the squat. Knew I should've gone into this session aiming for 2 x 3, but oh well.
    Press: 63.5kg x 1 x 5 - Quite easy.
    Deadlift: 167.5kg x 1 x 3, 150kg x 1 x 5 (90% AMRAP)

    04/12/2021 - Volume

    Squat: 142.5kg x 5 x 5 (87.5% offset) - last rep of last set was a bit grindy but all in all pretty good
    Bench: 72.5kg x 5 x 5 (90% offset) - easy
    Deadlift: 140kg x 3 x 5 (82.5% offset) - not hard per se, but fatiguing after the squat volume

    Squat: 115kg x 2 x 5
    Press: 51kg x 3 x 5
    Chinups: 3 x AMRAP (11/6/6)

    Recovery is the hardest day for me. Every part of the posterior chain is always sore and painful from the prior workout's volume, but it miraculously gets recovered just in time for Intensity.
