    Ideally you want 8, 8, 7.
    If it's 8, 6, 5, then when you add weight it will be something like 6, 4, 3.
    You don't want to be failing as soon as you add weight.

    Thanks, PB, I'll use that guide as I progress with chins.

    5/11/19 - also my firstborn's birthday

    Weight: 180.0

    OHP: 105 x 3,3,3,2,3 (PR!)
    Not sure what happened on the 4th set. I think I just lost focus. Today was another totally crazy day, and I barely had time for the workout. Being rushed for a workout stinks. Will repeat the weight next time.

    Airdyne: skipped it, per the crazy day with barely time for a workout.

    Yesterday was another crazy day, no time for workout.

    Also just realized, Saturday's OHP w.o. was supposed to repeat the 104# weight from previous OHP workout. DEFINITELY will be repeating 105# next time!

    5/13/19

    Weight: 179.8

    Squats: 255 x 3,3,2 .... 205 x 5
    Was supposed to be 255 x 3 x 5, but 2nd rep of 3rd set convinced me this is too much weight for me at this point. The descent is fine, the depth is fine, but I still am struggling with the ascent and being too bent over, and having to use all abs to keep from getting stapled. Just popped a plate off of the bar, and did one more set of 5 at 205.

    Taking this as a sign for my first NLP reset of 10%. So, next time will target 230 x 5 x 3, and really focusing on the co-ordination of the ascent as things get heavy.

    I was training John, the Special Olympics powerlifting guy, and I told him about us meeting up in the Summer Games. He asked which team you coached and I told him the Wildcats. Turns out he has a powerlifting buddy on your team name of Dave. So it looks like it will be old home week next month.

    Well, we do have a David on the team, so maybe that's him! Less than 4 weeks to go, we'll see you there

    Weight: 179.7

    Bench: 162 x 3,3,3,3,2
    Failed on the last rep, will repeat weight next time. For all 5 sets, 1st rep was no issue, 2nd rep was a bit difficult, and the last rep was a grind. Probably getting close to my first LP reset.

    5/15/19

    Weight: 180.0

    Deadlift: 310 x 2, 290 x 3

    Was going to be 310 x 3 x 2, but after two reps @ 310, knew I was at my limit, so then did a backoff set @ 290. Running pretty tired today (lousy sleep last night), so that may be the issue. Will try 310# again next time.

    Weight: 179.9

    OHP: 105 x 3,3,3,3,2

    Just didn't have enough to make the last rep. That's twice failing at this weight, so resetting 10% for the next time.

    Airdyne: Just did 4:00 @ 65 RPM, no HIIT. Really bad sleep last night, migraine.
