    Weight: 180.2

    OHP: 96 x 5 x 3

    Ties my PR for sets of 5. With any luck, next time will be 97 x 5 x 3, which is a weight I've never done for a set of 5

    Dips: 9, 9, 9

    Second time doing dips. I had a decent amount of shoulder pain last time, mainly on the right side. Today, I didn't go as deep, but I did record it, and I was still going below parallel (shoulder below elbow), so I think the pain last time was just from overdoing the depth.

    Also, looks like it's time to go get a dip belt!

    5/31/19

    Weight: 180.0

    Squat: 225 x 5 x 3

    No issues, form was decent, 5th reps of sets 2 and 3 were a bit grindy.

    Pull-ups: 5*, 4*, 7

    First try last time was a mess, was hoping this would be better. First two sets were assisted with about 20# assist at the top. None of the reps on those two sets was really good, all were just shy of getting over the bar. Distracted with getting other things done during rests (crazy day here today), I should have changed the assist after the first set, but didn't get to it. Finally adjusted for 3rd set, with ~25# assist at the top, and apparently that last 5# of assist is what was needed (for now) to get valid reps in.

    6/1/19

    Weight: 180.6

    Bench: 164 x 3, 150 x 5 x 2

    Was making a second attempt at 164 x 3 x 5, and could tell from the first set it wasn't gonna happen. Decided to do a reset and go from there. So now, all four main lifts have seen the first reset of LP.

    LTEs: 45 x 5, 65 x 5 x 3

    Hardest part is keeping my body stable on the downward motion, it wants to flip off the bench

    6/3/19

    Weight: 180.3

    Missed yesterday's workout, kid #2's HS graduation and everything. Some things are just worth missing a workout for

    Today: PCs 97.5 x 3 x 5

    Just my second time doing PCs since 3 years ago, and I can already tell my form is improving. Just taking the weight increases slowly, even though this didn't feel particularly heavy.

    Chins: 8, 7, 6

    Last time was 7, 7, 6. This was my first time doing 8 (well, since I was in my teens, LOL), and the last set was within an inch of being a 7.

    Will need a dip/weight belt soon. Asked for one for Father's Day, will just use a resistance band and a small plate in the meantime

    6/4/19

    Weight: 180.1

    OHP: 97 x 5 x 3

    New PR for sets of 5 across, all higher weights in the past were for sets of 4 or 3

    Dips (Weighted +5#): 8, 8, 8

    First time doing weighted dips, and still beat the recommended 8,8,7 barrier to go up in weight, so I'll do +10# next time.
    Using a resistance band and a small plate for the weight worked fine, but past 10#, probably wouldn't.

    Missed yesterday, migraine day

    Weight: 179.8

    Squats: 225 x 5 x 3

    Pullups (assisted, ~23# at top): 9, 9, 8

    Since these are asssisted, I'll keep the assist the same next time, until I can hit 10 on at least the first set

    6/11/19

    Weight: 182.1

    Missed three days due to out of town trip (met Mark Hurling at Special Olympics Summer Games!) and then yesterday was too jam packed to fit in a workout

    DL: 280 x 5

    With all the missed days, just repeated the weight from the last workout. No issues, and 0:36 to complete the entire set (/wave Carson )

    Chins: 8, 7, 6

    And grindy at that, too. But, with 8 days since I did my last chin session, not too surprising. Same amount of reps as last time.

    Weight: 181.1

    Due to the days I've missed lately, just repeating weights from last time....

    OHP: 97 x 5 x 3

    No issues, felt good.

    Dips (+5#): 8, 8, 8

    No issues, same reps as last time. Will definitely be adding 10# next time, using my new dip belt, which I'm getting for Father's Day

    Weight: 181.1

    Still dealing with missed days in my cycle, so repeating weights from last time....

    Squat: 225 x 5 x 3

    No issues, felt fine

    Pullups: Assisted, don't remember how much in pounds, but it's one rung lower (so, less assist) than last time: 8, 9, 7

    Not sure why I was able to get 9 on the second set, and not the first, but I'll take it
    Also, since it's at least 8, 8, 7 (pb's recommendation for when to move to less assist/more added weight), I'll go one rung lower on the assist next time

    In the "good news" category, I got my daughter to do an initial workout! Hoping she will stick with it through the summer, and make some nice gains before she's off to college
