    My previous log is here: Thirdstation's Log

    I am the self-proclaimed King of LP.

    My pattern is:

    LP -> Advanced LP -> Failed transition to Intermediate -> Quit for 3-6 mos. -> LP

    All wrapped in cognitive dissonance.

    Facts:
    Male, 45
    5'6", 234 lbs.

    Once more unto the breach ...

    Sets x reps. All quantities in pounds.

    Squat: 3x5 225
    Press: 3x5 95
    Deadlift: 5 x 275

    Squat: 3x5 245
    Press: 3x5 105
    Deadlift: 6 x 315
    Conditioning: 3x12 30# slam ball (:20/1:40).
    It just happens 12 slams takes me 20 sec.

    Took a lax ball to my ankles/feet and that took care of most of the knee pain while squatting.

    Squat: 3x5 255
    CG Bench: 3x5 145
    Deadlift: 6 x 325

    Knees mostly OK. Didn't stretch beforehand as much as last time. Best set was when I
    didn't think about it too much.

    Squat: 3x5 260
    Press: 3x5 110
    Deadlift: 6 x 330
    Conditioning: 3x12 30# ball slam (on 2:00).

    Stretched a lot and went for a short warm-up walk beforehand. No knee pain today.
    Focused a lot on form. I have a tendency to dive into the hole and then go
    forward too much on the way up.

    Switching to 5 lb. jumps to keep form in check.

    Common sense trumps ego today.

    Missed -- OK, skipped -- Tuesday's workout hence the repeat for squat and bench. Motivation is hard.

    Knees hurt a little. Couldn't get them out enough. Needed to stretch more. Actually, I need to stretch every day
    until I can resolve my knee issues. I have no pain if my form is perfect. My margin of error has evaporated though.
