    How was your back today with only squats and no deads?

    Still some pain but certainly better without doing the deadlifts.

    Do you plan on implementing Power Cleans at some point as well?
    And do you have access to a pull-up bar? The SS program usually starts alternating Deadlift and Power Clean at some point, and later adding Chin-ups and Weighted Chin-ups into the alternation as well.
    I am not an expert on this, but I think if the Deadlift is too much on your back after Squat, then perhaps Chin-ups instead of Deadlift would be better alternation on those Squat days?

    Yes I have been doing seated rows and lat pulldowns, but haven't listed them to avoid offending people for not doing the program.

    Workout A, is Seated Pulley Rows 200lbs, 3 sets of 5

    Workout B, is Lat pulldowns 180lbs, 3 sets of 5

    The stack on the machine is 200lbs, when I max out at 200lbs for lat pulldowns I'll start doing chinups.

    I will go back to powercleans when my back has healed up.

    Week 12
    Today's workout
    Dumbell Lunges: 55 lbs dumbells, 3 sets of 10
    OHP: 132 lbs (60kg), 5, 5, 4, 3
    OHP Afternoon repeat: 132 lbs (60kg), 5, 5, 4

    I can't believe I failed getting the PR on OHP today, the first 2 sets were easy. I was so certain I could get it I came back in the afternoon for another attempt.

    Definitely still getting stronger so I'm not going to reset just yet.

    Did some tricep extensions just on my left arm, I noticed my left arm is showing weakness in the press once grinding starts. Hopefully this balances things out a bit.

    Today's workout

    Bench Press: 203.5 lbs (92.5kg), 3 sets of 5 (PR)
    Deadlifts: 187 lbs (85 kg) 5 reps (sciatica)

    Oh yeah got a PR on bench today. Getting closer to my 100kg goal. Bloody happy.

    Started some exercises to correct the imbalance in my left arm.
