    Looking at the video - I was wondering if the carpet affects your balance in the squat? Maybe put a sheet of plywood or three under the rack?

    I don't think so. I just sort of lost it. The carpet is Gerber, there isn't much "squish" down into it.

    The floor isn't very level there, but I don't think that's it either.

    With that said, some type of platform is on the list at some point.

    Crappy day.

    Squat. Somehow managed to work through 3 sets of 300 finally (3rd try). It was brutal. Rested 14 min after set 2.

    300 x 3 x 5

    Press

    117 x 1 x 1. Couldn't press at all. Took a nap

    Press

    115 x 4, 5, 5

    DL. Warmups felt good. 235 came off the floor like nothing. Couldn't break 285 off the floor after 3 tries.

    Last workout of the year!

    Squat

    304 x 3, 1. Failed on rep 4. Started up and went right back down. Did one on set 2. Decided to make it a "light day"
    275 x 2 x 5

    Bench 171 x 3,4,3

    DL. Not sure what's going on here. Couldn't break 304 off the ground. Dropped to 275 and (barely) did my working set.

    Did some triceps work. That was fun

    First workout of the year.


    Squats. Felt pretty good, went for 304 again. 2nd and 3rd sets were pretty ugly I think, but I ground them out. Still working on some being too high. Starting to feel the high ones though.

    304 x 3 x 5

    Press. Changed bars and weights. Using Ivanko bar and BEN 35#. This will make loading (and micro loading) much easier.

    115 x 3 x 5

    DL. Not sure what happened here, but I'm having a lot of trouble. Will have to check my form.

    280 x 1 x 5

    Meh, not a great workout. Didn't sleep well last night.

    Squat. Bit off more than I can chew, but damn, at least I did some. I have to decide soon if I should start doing a light day on Wed.

    310 x 5,5,3

    Bench. Switched to the Ivanko Bar. I though this would be easy, since I have been working my tricepts, but no go.

    171 x 5,4,3. Will switch to a heavy, light, volume day for Bench this week.

    DL

    185 x 4. Needed chalk. My grip was slipping even with a hook grip.

    Oh well, at least I lifted today, it was a rough morning and I almost skipped. I ended up napping for a while then hitting it.

    Wed 1/7/15

    Managed to do really good timing with my warmups to my next set between my working sets. Cut a good hour off my workout. I was also a bit more focused.

    Decided to add a light day for squats.

    250 x 3 x 5. Thinking, oh yeah, 250 will be easy, LOL. NO

    Press
    115 x 4,5,5, I need to nut up on my press, dammit

    DL
    290 x 1 x 5. First one off the floor almost killed me. Then they were easy. Need to work on my setup methinks.

    Chins
    3 x 5 Assisted (minor jumping off floor)

    Going to add some arm work in to help with presses and bench. No rest between sets, just enough to load / unload bar. Need a curl bar for triceps. LOL, arms are pumped, can barely type.

    Triceps, LTE

    I'm getting FATT, so I'm going to be a bit more careful with my diet and start HIIT again. Goal weight is 190 to 195 without much strength loss.

    BW: 207
    Total Calories Consumed: 2948
    82 Grams Fat
    350 Grams Carbs
    203 Grams Protein

    Simple 15:60 x 12 program to start out with. I live in the hills, so I just go out and start running up them (15 to 22% grade). This was brutal, my lungs were burning after the 2nd or 3rd set.

    20 Minutes (including cool down back down the hill)
    1.4 Miles total
    396 vertical feet
    286 calories

    Had high hopes for todays workout, but I really sucked. Slept poorly last night for some reason. Would have thought I would have been out after the running up the hill, but I kept waking up.

    I'm guessing the HIIT yesterday and the extended amount of fuckarounditis on Wed contributed to it. I will start to do HIIT on my workout days so I can get the same amount of recovery on them and quit fucking around with "accessory" work for the time being.

    Squat

    315 x 1 x 1
    310 x 1 x 1
    300 x 3 x 5

    Bench. 155 seemed REALLY fucking hard.

    171 x 1
    166 x 3
    164 x 2 x 5

    DL. These were the worst. I really think I'm having some bad setup issues. 225 took 2 tries to break off the floor. Once I got it going, it was easy. Couldn't break 265. Decided to take a break, and maybe go after DL later today...

    I did half up and half down today to tighten things up a bit. Of course, this was about 14 minutes up and 4 down
