    I'm thinking this is how I do best too. I've never had a lot of shoulder mass to really put the weight up corresponding with my bodyweight (high of 230, ave 227-8 last couple days). I'll have to try a back to back press work out, say Bench Mon/Thurs, OHP Tues/Fri? That gets two each per week. Can't hurt to try.

    Squats: 245x5x3; 275x1; 295x1; 315x1 single PR Recovery squats... and a little more... why not... felt a little squirrelly
    OHP: 127x5x5x3 135x2; 145x1

    So I won a 13mm Rogue Powerlifter belt on ebay for $50, and wanted to do it justice, hence the heavier singles. It's not broken in at all, and it's a lot of freakin belt. Back felt good, form was symmetrical again, but do feel it in my left adductor. Overall a good day.

    That sounds like we're bearing down on a TM type schedule for presses. I'd like to add in some dips and push presses as assistance movements. Dips b/c they're fun, and PP to add some poundage to my shoulders.

    Squat: 270x5x3 form didn't feel good until 3rd workset. Think I had belt too tight.
    Bench: 217.5x5,5,6 did one extra for the man upstairs, 5# shy of PR territory.
    PC: 125x3x5 finally worked through a whole 5 set sequence. Light, but felt good.

    Overall a good day. Ate more rice than usual. Perhaps that's what was needed.

    LSQT: 215x5x3
    Pullups (BW): 11,10,10 booyah, weighted versions coming up!

    Was intending on trying to squeeze 2 each BP and OHP into a week. Yesterday got through warmup but wasn't feeling confident in hitting all reps in workset, so called it. Will OHP Thursday, then back on sched.

    Thanks dude. Thinking next big DL day may be next Friday after squats. I need to keep the focus on squats to close the gap a little at least till I'm back in the 300s again.

    Presses: 130x5x3, then BBB 50x10x5, just because
    Back ext: BW+10, 10x3

    Squat 275x5,5,7
    Deadlift: up to 415x2 just wanted to feel some weight. Going for x5 next Friday. Probably could have gotten 4 clean but I take forever to recover from DL.
    Squat backoffs: 225x5x2

    Then off to a family function. Had to rush. Bench and PC tomorrow.

    You still don't have a copy of PPST3, do you, Steve?

    I was just going to mention the strategies to prolong the novice LP in the book, since it sounds like the squats have been getting on top of you.

    1. Reset after a stall (I think you already did this)
    2. Light squat day mid-week
    3. Increase rest days to always have two days rest btwn. lifting sessions.
    4. Instead of sets across, switch to one top set of five at PR weight, then do two back-off sets at 95% of PR weight.


    The book mentions the third option as the most powerful of all, and recommends keeping the light squat day every other workout, so you'd increase the weight every six days.
