    It's been a while since I updated this. In the last month, I got a really bad dose of the flu which hindered my training, got little sleep and little food due to work, my working hours increased and I was stressed out from work. I missed 3 training sessions in this time period due to these factors. The training sessions that I attended were pretty tough. My bench, squat and ohp stalled as a result. This is disappointing as, if these factors didnt occur, I wouldn't have stalled. My work is finished, I don't go back to college for another few weeks and I've been training sickness free with enough food and sleep for the last 2 weeks. I deloaded on my squat, bench and ohp and have been working back up. I added a back off set of 1x8 to my ohp. My deadlift is starting to feel pretty heavy, but the more I sleep and the more I eat, I'm certain I'll be able to deadlift 1.5 times per week without stalling. My insanely long forearms have made PCs impossible to rack correctly and now my wrists hurt me. I tried to do power snatches tonight but my form was off. I'm going to do light rack pulls until I start HLM, so as to give my lower back a break, help recover from DLs and increase my pulling volume.

    My short term goal is to not stall on any of my lifts before the first week of September, as that's when I go back to college. When I return to college, I'll switch to HLM. This is frustrating as my lifts would be a lot higher on HLM had I not been ill + stressed from work.

    Form notes -> felt a bit tough but ok. Depth is good.

    45 x 1 x 8 (back off set)

    Form notes -> felt easy

    I tried to power snatch but my form wasn't correct and I was getting elbow pain so I called it a day.

    I'm going to do light rack pulls from now on.

    Forgot to weigh myself

    Weight(kg) x Sets x Reps

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    62.5 x 1 x 4
    82.5 x 1 x 3
    102.5 x 1 x 2
    120 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt hard. Bar path was off on a few reps.

    Bench:
    20 x 1 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    52.5 x 1 x 3
    65 x 1 x 3
    82.5 x 1 x 2
    96 x 3 x 5
    80 x 1 x 8

    Form notes -> felt decent enough. I shortened the rest time between reps 1, 2 and 3 which made the set feel easier. I stupidly stuck a 1.25kg plate onto one side instead of a 2.5kg plate, which made set 1 the hardest.

    DL:
    60 x 1 x 5
    100 x 1 x 3
    120 x 1 x 3
    140 x 1 x 2
    ***160 x 1 x 5***PR

    Form notes -> did not feel good. I was losing lumbar extension from the floor. I dont know what degree of lumbar flexion occurred as my stupid phone fell just before my first rep. I'll go up to 162.5kg for the next DL session. Hopefully, my belt will come in by then.

    Chins:
    1 x 5
    1 x 4

    Form notes -> I was too trashed after deadlifting so I decided to leave chins. I'll put do them after my DL variation day.

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    65 x 1 x 4
    85 x 1 x 3
    105 x 1 x 2
    122.5 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt really hard for some reason. 120kg was difficult but manageable. I have no idea why today was so hard. It was harder than 130kg, which makes no sense considering I was sick, sleep deprived, tired from work and not eating enough food when I did 130kg. For the last 2 weeks, I've been eating a lot, sleeping plenty and relaxing at home. I'll try to do 2 30min walks per day instead of lounging around my house which consumes all of my day, unless I'm going out with friends. The only factors that I can think that led to me struggling with such low weight is that I didnt get to sleep until 4am and woke up at 8am but stayed in bed until 12. Also, I had to go on Monday, Wed, Fri and Sun so this was my 4th squatting session in 7 days, which shouldn't play that much of a role making it really hard.

    OHP:
    20 x 2 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    40 x 1 x 3
    47.5 x 1 x 2
    58.5 x 3 x 5
    46 x 1 x 8

    Form notes -> felt easy. I recorded it and noticed I can't lock out my arms. Maybe I have really tight biceps. I always knew I can't fully extend my elbow when my arm is overhead, but I didn't know it was to this degree.

    Light Deadlift:
    60 x 1 x 5
    75 x 1 x 3
    90 x 1 x 3
    105 x 1 x 2
    120 x 1 x 5

    Form notes -> felt fine

    Chins:
    BW x 1 x 3

    Form notes -> did this immediately after deadlifts. Had literally no time as my bus was coming.

    Didn't weigh myself today

    Weight(kg) x Sets x Reps

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    67.5 x 1 x 4
    87.5 x 1 x 3
    107.5 x 1 x 2
    125 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> used a belt (4inch, 10mm) today. This was such an easy squatting session. 100x easier than 122.5kg. The last rep of the last set was a little bit slow but every other rep came up pretty easily. I reduced my rest time between each set and reduced my rest time between each rep. I'm so happy that squats are feeling good now and am pretty annoyed I didn't get my belt earlier.

    Bench:
    20 x 1 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    57.5 x 1 x 3
    70 x 1 x 3
    82.5 x 1 x 2
    97.5 x 3 x 5
    82.5 x 1 x 8

    Form notes -> felt a little bit difficult. The posterior aspect of my left shoulder was slightly sore after each set. I probably need to retract my shoulder blades a lot harder. My bar path was off for reps 4 and 5 of set 1

    Deadlift:
    60 x 1 x 5
    102.5 x 1 x 3
    122.5 x 1 x 3
    142.5 x 1 x 2
    162.5 x 1 x 2 (fail)

    Form notes -> it was my first time using a belt while deadlifting. It felt awkward. My back started rounding but I can't tell how significant it was.

    Chins:

    HBBS:
    40 x 2 x 5
    70 x 1 x 4
    90 x 1 x 3
    110 x 1 x 2
    127.5 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> felt pretty good. Belt is helping a lot. Back is feeling good in the squat. One or 2 reps were a little slow but it was still a solid 3 sets. My shorts were ripping right down the middle throughout my sets which was a little off putting (and embarrassing).

    OHP:
    20 x 2 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    40 x 1 x 3
    50 x 1 x 2
    60 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> used a belt for the first time. It didn't help that much. I was messing around with the position of the belt and found that having it really low works the best, but it's not that great. The set felt good though.

    Light Deadlifts:
    60 x 1 x 5
    77.5 x 1 x 3
    92.5 x 1 x 3
    105 x 1 x 2
    122.5 x 1 x 5

    Form notes -> I've tried to use the cues given to me on form check - don't move the bar, push the floor away with my feet etc. It was a bit harder than I thought. So I definitely have to take a deload for my heavy set on sunday.

    Barbell rows:
    30 x 2 x 5
    40 x 1 x 3
    50 x 1 x 2
    60 x 1 x 2
    70 x 3 x 5

    Form notes -> used a supine grip. Felt easy. I'm only doing these as my left shoulder is annoying me and I feel these could help.

    Chins:
    BW x 1 x 5

    90 x 1 x 3
    110 x 1 x 2
    ***130 x 3 x 5***PR

    Form notes -> felt hard but happy I got it up. I'm hoping I can hit at least 140kg before I stall.

    Bench:
    20 x 1 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    57.5 x 1 x 3
    70 x 1 x 3
    83.5 x 1 x 2
    ***98.5 x 3 x 5***PR

    Form notes -> felt good. My video shows that I might be slamming the weight off of my chest. Really happy I got a new PR after stalling due to external stressors. Also, I forgot to do my back off set.

    Deadlift:
    60 x 1 x 5
    90 x 1 x 3
    110 x 1 x 3
    130 x 1 x 2
    150 x 1 x 5

    Form notes -> deloaded due to the need to correct some form errors. Belt is still uncomfortable. I nearly vomitted after the 4th rep. Took off the belt and my form improved. I might just ditch belted deadlifts. Pushing the floor away with my feet seems to be training my lower back hard, which I'm happy with.

    92.5 x 1 x 3
    112.5 x 1 x 2
    ***132.5 x 3 x 5***PR

    Form notes -> felt good but tough. I think my depth was solid but I didn't record it. I really emphasised "chest up" on the concentric which helped with my bar path.

    OHP:
    20 x 2 x 5
    30 x 1 x 5
    40 x 1 x 3
    50 x 1 x 2
    61 x 3 x 5
    48.5 x 1 x 8

    Form notes -> felt good. The last rep of set 2 and 3 was a bit slower than I wanted but it was fine overall. I should definitely set a new PR on Sunday.

    Chins:
    BW x 1 x 6

    Form notes -> I might omit chins for a while since my BW is going up and I've detrained on them

    Rows:
    30 x 1 x 5
    40 x 1 x 3
    55 x 1 x 3
    60 x 1 x 1
    ***75 x 3 x 5***PR

    Form notes -> I messed up my warm up progression and I should have had a heavier workset. I only took 4 min rest between sets.
