    I also have found that occasionally anger helps. The sometimes seemingly random weekly/daily fluctuations in strength are one of the annoying parts of training.

    lol yeah this whole 'linear progression' stuff never seems to occur.

    I can get pretty fired up just thinking about how I was duped into believing in Chad's existence.

    unless I am missing something, a look back to october on your log and you made damn good progress on your squat. 300 single is darn good.

    thanks lou! yeah, it has crept back up. i'm working off an iffy hamstring that has, er, well, hamstrung me for many months now, and 295 flew up (sort of) last week so I was hoping for a bit more!

    tues 1/9/18
    sq 45 1x10, 135 1x5, 205 1x5, 235 1x5, 275 2x5
    dl 225 1x5, 275 1x5, 315 1x5, 365 3x1

    365 still feels heavier than it should, which is a bummer; sq went well

    Maybe you get tired from squatting first. Have you tried deadlifting first?

    I second this suggestion. Or maybe just do light squats on deadlift day.

    So remind me, what's your programming now? Do I remember correctly that you said you were moving to HLM-style programming?

    that's the theory

    sundays: heavy deads, various upper body thingies, no deads
    tuesdays: 2x5 at 90% of the heavy squat goal for the following sunday, heavy deads
    thursdays: 3x5 at 95% of the heavy squat goal, rack pulls

    and add 5lbs/wk to hvy session each week

    so for example today i did (since i couldn't get to gym yesterday):

    friday 1/12/18
    sq 45 1x10, 135 1x5, 185 1x5, 235 1x5, 285 3x5 (285 being 95% of the 300 i want to 4x5 at on sunday)
    rp: 225 1x5, 315 1x5, 385 3x1

    and i do some dumb bell rows at the end of most sessions

    to siri's well taken point, that's exactly why i do my heavy dead work on the day i do the lightest squats, i really use the squats as the warm up but i do think i need to rest more before starting the deads; as i'm in a public gym i tend to do the 225 1x5 dead set basically as soon as i've put away the squat weights
