    Down to -15F last night. Although ambient was 5F (with no wind) at time of lifting, I guess bar was still < 0F. Bar was fucking cold.

    Sat in the car between some of the sets.

    Press (I)
    45x5x2
    85x5
    115x3
    135x2
    155x1 belt
    172.5 x 1 x 2 belt / 2.5 min
    172.5xf belt
    172.5x1 belt
    172.5xfx2 belt
    162.5x 3 x 2 belt / 4 min

    I believe I lack the concentration to maintain form to complete "heavy" singles.

    Barely kept the PR streak alive by getting 1 more set than previous volume session. Hoped to get the 5x5, but at least I did the reps.

    And here I was today whining about how the bar made my fingers numb while pressing in the 45F workout room. You the man.

    Thanks. It can be invigorating out there.

    Shhhh.... I do wear some thin, tight fitting cotton gloves. Sometimes they match my shoes, sometimes they don't.

    am BW 239 (gained a belt hole)

    Bench (I)
    45x8,7
    95x5
    135x5
    175x3
    210x2
    240x1 belt
    262.5 x 3 x 3 belt / 6 min (technically, 3+f,3,3)
    245x5 belt / 6 min

    Planned to take 5, 4, or 3 on (1st) work set. Would have liked 1x5 and 2 back-offs. Willing to settle for 2x4, or 3x3. Thinking I will just run this out. Move the weight up 2.5 and work with what I get on 1st set.

    Got the planned singles. Programmed 165x3x2 as back-offs, but S1R3 wasn't in the cards. Feet and hands frozen, so called off 2nd set and went to the dungeon for:

    SL -

    Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. If by "interesting" you mean...

    a) .. good work.

    Thanks.

    b) .. those are pathetic numbers for a human male my height and weight.

    I agree.

    c) .. related to the programming.

    I started with Nick Delgadillo's Upper Body programming article. I moved it to a 4-day rotation quickly when I discovered 1) pressing on consecutive days sucked and 2) intensity for press and bench on same day sucked. I've modified as I've failed, but it has worked well for the 2.5 months I have consistently lifted 3 days/wk. I have set some form of PR on every session since mid-December.

    Regards - Mike
