    Missed the Wednesday workout as I didn't make it into the office and the home rack is out of order.
    All this to say I snuck into the work gym with a 30 min break between meetings today and got the bench press I was supposed to do yesterday.

    When I was reviewing my 365 deadlift video from the other day a sidebar suggested youtube video was one of SCS Gillian Ward's, which was pulling 365 in a competition. Her approach and setup to the bar was a no-nonsense set up, no wiggling. Just get there, very minimal setup, and pull the weight. She is literally a pro, so it's not surprising when I considered it for more than 5 seconds. It was truly inspirational and mimicking that approach when pulling today (albeit power cleans, not deadlifts) made quite a difference to me.

    Squat 5 reps each at 365/345/345
    Bench 215x3x3
    Dead 370x5.

    Dead was ugly again. Fugly even. Need to do something with deadlift programming I think. I'm thinking that just pulling deadlifts on Mondays and power cleans on Fridays isn't cutting it.

    2015-02-13 Friday
    Squat 370x5, 350x5x2
    Bench 220x3x3
    Dead 135x2 , 225x2, 275x2 , 315x2, 375x1

    For the deadlift I wanted to try to do my best form ramping up with recording the video. Once the video is together and up I'll post it and see what I can see. My lifting buddy was helping me and my back isn't as flat as it should be, as I was thinking.

    Tired by the time I get to deadlift on Friday which is a heavy day all around. Maybe some more tinkering is required and move the heavy pulling day to Wednesday, the light squat day.

    Missed Monday, so normal Wednesday light squat day became heavy squat day. Kept DL on its new day, Wednesday.
    Squat 375x5 (PR), 355x5x2
    Press 170x3x3 (PR)
    Deadlift 375x5

    Although today was not a light squat day, I was very well rested having not worked out since last Friday. So, I think deadlifting on the light squat day will be beneficial. Also, the guy I was lifting with in the gym worked his ass off on a 5x3 RM squat of 225 today, so there was no room to slack for me!

    Missed Friday, too.
    Today:
    Squat 380x5 (PR), 360x5x2. Last set of 360 was really 1-1-3, got off-balance on the first rep, did something silly with my back on the 2nd.
    Bench 225x3,3,1 Missed the last set. After the first rep, got out of breath trying to do it all on one breath. Manage that better next time. Even one set of 3 is PR on the bench though. Retry on Friday.

    Here's the Squat 380x5

    A summary of 2015's excuses:

    Jan 20 - Ankle Sprain - Indoor Soccer (1st game of season)
    April 21 - Concussion - Indoor Soccer (2nd game back)
    May 29 - Birth Of First Child

    Back at it in the last 2 weeks, also signed up for the Fall Classic meet in Toronto, something to train for. Aiming to compete in the 100 kg class, so that's dropping some weight before then too.
