    Just getting going again myself. Chasing old PRís is good motivation.

    Agreed. I'm a few years older, and a little more broken, but I am committed to blowing away those PRs.

    Did 3 chins today (did 2 on Sat 3/5). Feeling a little pull in my right forearm where the muscles meet the elbow. Prob could do another 1-2 if it weren't for that, but don't want to injure anything.

    I wonder if these should be done on training days or rest days - or if it matters at all.

    Session #4 - 3/9/22
    SQUAT: 180 x 3x5
    PRESS: 100 x 3x5 (I also pressed 97.5 x 2x5 before realizing I misloaded the bar)
    DEADLIFT: 225 x 1x5 (Video)

    Too big of a jump for the deadlift. Form broke down on 4th rep and started to strain lower back on the left side. Tightened my belt another notch, then pulled the 5th rep. Not sure If I should just add 5lbs, or choose a lower weight (previous session was 185lbs).

    lol well you answered that question!

    slow and steady when you're starting out again, you're building a solid base to blast those old PRs

    Haha, I know. I actually tweaked my back at 225, but got all 5 reps. Figured 15 more lbs wouldn't hurt...and it didn't

    Going to slow down the jumps next week for all the lifts at this rate and just stick to the program from here.
