    My buddy Mike wants to lift.

    His goals are general strength and health, and hopefully a reduction in chronic back pain.

    Military specialty branch officer (Chaplain)

    Sex: M
    Age: 44
    Height: 68"
    Weight: 185lbs

    Prior lifting experience: Almost none; some hex bar deadlifts because Army.

    Today was my second session with him; I'll just list his highest sets across performed so far:

    SQT 125x5x3

    BNC 115x5x3

    PRS 45x5x3

    DLT 175x5


    Lots of technique work to do. On everything. Dude's a little awkward, and a little inflexible. He's not incapable, though. Once he finally reaches the bottom position of the squat, he pistons right up. Once he gets set for deadlift, he drives it up easily so far.

    Bench, need to work on his elbow-tracking and general tightness. Press, need to work on ... everything. Especially top lock position. He sends it forward.

    Press is getting less awkward. Adding weight was the answer: A lot of his physics problems work themselves out when he can no longer maintain an unnecessary moment arm in lockout.

    Might be missing a session? I'm on the road working phone-only so I can't check all my data.

    Army stuff keeps making Mike miss sessions. But thankfully he's far enough down in his strength curve that he can nail new weights.
