    W14D1 - Monday

    Squat:
    45x5x2
    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    365x1
    390x5x3 Was in a bad mood since i woke up. Coach called them fast so i'll take his word for it. Only problem is that now i am developing a bad habit with my right hand that is causing pain, need to somehow fix it. As if knee pain problems weren't enough, but at least the knee keeps feeling better and better.

    THE Press:
    45x5x2
    95x5
    125x3
    145x1
    155x1
    170x5x3 Got all three sets of five on the repeat. Either microloading will start or something else might change depending on how bench feels on Wednesday.

    Awesome work.
    You’ve already beaten your old PRs on both press, and bench.

    225x3
    315x2
    365x1
    395x5x3 Working hard at avoiding a bad grip on the right side given the pain it has been causing me. First and second set were better, third i just wanted it done and the grip was not as good which caused some pain afterwards.

    THE Press:
    45x5x2
    95x5
    125x3
    145x1
    155x1
    175x3x3 Since we did the change to triples still added 5lbs. This is a PR for a triple AND sets across on top of that. Good!

    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    365x1

    *Coach said after last warmup to move the workset to Mondays to help with recovery, given all the recovery issues i have from DLs. So we took the warmups as a light day and will just wait for Monday for the full thing.

Really wanted the 445 but hopefully my knee will go back to being fine soon... it is beggining to make me upset that i just can't put all my energy into training because of the darn thing.
