    Took an extra day off from lifting due to a storm closing the gym the same day I moved into a new apartment. Was a bit sore going into the workout.

    Recovery and sleep this week have been shit. Felt a mild strain in the left shoulder during the last set of bench. Thats two now, with 0 priors in my entire training history. Something is not right. I'm going to figure this out and fix it.

    Squat 305x5x3 Set 1, Set 2
    Press 130x5x3 Set 3
    Dead 345x5x1

    I think my bench press woes were a combination of 2 major things. I was setting up with my eyes on the wrong side of the bar; combined with trying to clear the oversized j-hooks created a bar path that had more moment arm than necessary. In turn I was touching too low on the chest. Shoulder feels fine today after the press. This should be an easy correction.

    BW: 203lbs

    Squat 310x5x3
    The first set was very explosive. The second set was harder. The third set was brutally hard. It looked like a did some dry heaving on my face after these sets with all the burst capillaries.

    Bench 195x5x3
    I completed all the reps at 195 on bench with no pain from the prior tweak that happened last Friday. I made sure to have a good set up and focused on driving the weight up even on the way down, as described in the book.

    PC 72.5kgx3x5
    After analyzing some videos I have been shooting, it looks like I am dropping my hips on the deadlift and PC set up. I worked on correcting this today.

    I had my lifting session today with Stefan Theimar of the online coaching academy. He gave me some things to work on in the coming weeks.

    It was a bit of a distraction being out of my normal element. I accidentally used 350 as the working weight for the deadlift again.
