    belt / 8 min between sets. Planned 145.5x5x3

    Thought I had S3,R5 until it got stuck at forehead.

    Did 145.5x4x4 on 3/31/18.

    Probably time for intermediate on both pressing movements, but that takes thinking.

    am BW 231 - stuck at an unwanted plateau

    Did a little research and found Delgadillo's Upper Body programming article which fit nicely into schedule to start today. He refers to this as a compressed TM. We'll see how it goes. I have done H/L and HLM for the upper body. In both cases, I snuck in an extra day and (too many?) assistance exercises.

    About 90% of the 3x5x235 I did last Friday. Plan to try 235x5 on Sun, but it will be after pressing singles.

    A little less than 90% of planned singles in a couple of days. Nick's article suggests 2 to 3 min rest. Being conservative, I opted for 4 min rest periods. I'll probably stick w/ 4 min rest periods.

    Strict was strange after only doing standing 2.0.

    Singles were more difficult than I expected. This would have been next weight for NLP 3x5. Only two days rest for overhead vs normal 4 to 6 days.

    R5 was a great big barely. Concerned I may have went too heavy here with doing Press first. All I have been doing is upper body OLAD NLP. So, I have been fresh for every movement.

    "Easier" than last week.

    R5 was going to be questionable. But shit path off chest guaranteed the pins.

    Surprised. Fell off the sugar wagon a couple days ago which always leads to excess carbs of all types.

    Decided to see how doubles would go instead of 7 singles.
