    Traffic was terrible, got to SS Gym 1/2 hour late. Rushed thru squats, then deadlifts. Probably didn't get enough rest in for bench work sets

    Squat 3 x 5 x 145
    pause at bottom, depth better

    Deadlift 1 x 5 x 185
    think about keeping body back, keep the bar on shin with lats. push the floor away.
    didn't gouge my shin today, so that was something. still don't seem to be dragging bar up my shins

    Bench 2 x 5 x 147.5
    control on way down, need to work on correct lock out position and correct touch point
    2nd set was a struggle on last two reps. had to reset to get the last rep
    1 x 2 x 147.5
    i gave up on the last set. it didn't "feel" heavy, i just couldn't move it off my chest. i probably could have ignored the time constraint and hung around and finished but I didn't.
    I really need to work on the mechanics of this lift
    Probably staying at this weight, maybe even drop until i get the lift mechanics right and can make it thru my work sets without struggling. No need to rush. I'll discuss with my coach.

    Just took a look at your logs. Nice work coming back after the long break. Crazy how quickly the time flies. Looking forward to you putting up some PR numbers. When things get heavy and the program isnít going perfect anymore, adjust and keep moving. Thatís the advice I have to give myself too. Iíve tried the NLP twice and given up both times when itís become too heavy. Injuries can do that too.
    Keep up the good work!

    Big 10lb jump on presses. You wouldíve nailed it with a 5lb jump for sure. Keep moving upwards and onwards!

    Thanks for pointing that out Jared_T. I'm not sure how i got confused. I'm staying at that weight so I'll plan on getting it next session.

    9/13/19

    Squat 3 x 5 x 175
    depth ok

    Bench 2 x 5 x 150
    1 x 3 x 150 felt what seemed like a pop and had some pain
    1 x 2 x 135 Finished last set with less weight. Sore, but ok.
    mechanics better today. I've had trouble with my right shoulder before so i didn't push thru.
    right shoulder sore. i'll probably concentrate on press next week

    Deadlift 1 x 5 x 225
    need to keep it on shins. This was definitely harder than last session.

    Personally I had a shitty week. My mom's been gone for two years and her birthday would've been this week. My wife and I put one of our dogs down that had cancer and was fading fast. Work has been crap and most of it has been things I have no control over but I'm expected to take care of. I didn't feel like hitting the gym this week but i'm glad i did. There's something zen like in moving weight and making progress.
