My goal is to just do a little more before I burn out.
    Yeah, sounds like a good plan!
    Youíve stuck it out way more than most already and
    there is no prize for sticking it out. It will just get worse and worse and make you hate/fear training from everything Iíve read and seen. I havenít yet fully experienced it myself as I havenít finished the SSNLP, but youíre in that ego or pride/perfectionist phase of running out the program. I just donít think itís worth it. I got my squat up pretty ďheavyĒ for sets on my first LP and as soon as I had a stressful life event come up, it blew my training up, because I was red lining every work out and didnít have the mental capacity to keep going. I really wish I had known enough to adjust at the time.
    Austin Baraki mentioned his LP ended at 285 x 5 on squats but by changing to more appropriate training, he kept things moving to the point he now has hit over 600 in still a relatively short time, and his programming was much easier and sustainable than what LP was at the end.
    Consume everything you can about ďintermediateĒ programming and swap it up like your plan with Garage Gym Warrior.
    Sustained weekly progress is a lot better than burning out and not wanting to get under the bar anymore.
    Keep up the great work dude.

    Squat: 260x5x3, 8m rest. Belt @notch 6 barely. New PR! Long reset but worked back up to it, these felt good today.
    Bench Press (I): 190x5. Felt heavy
    Press (I): 130x3x2. Glad I switched to triples. Don't think I could have gotten 5.
    Deadlift (I): 295x0; 265x5. Belt @notch 8. Man.... so close to 300 but don't think I'm going to make it. I felt ok, but just couldn't pull it off the ground. Tried a couple time. Wanted to do 265x5x3 but I couldn't pull the second set off the floor. Not sure if it was just too much with the other lifts today, or because I tried not doing the volume work.

    Hey Jared, yeah I think I am fizzling out. I've hit enough failed reps that I think it is that time to wrap it up and move on to an intermediate program before I really burn out or get injured. I could probably eek out a couple pounds but I don't think it will matter in the long run at this point.

    Press: 135x1;140x1;145x1, 8m rest. Almost missed the second attempt, the bar came forward but I recovered. First time getting two 45 lb plates on a press!
    Deadlift: 300x1;315x1;335x1, 8m rest. Hook grip. The last attempt I lost my grip around my knees but I took a couple seconds and reattempted to get it. First time lifting 300 and getting 3 plates!

    Weight: 198.0 lb

    Squat: 275x1;285x1;300x1, 8m rest. First time squatting 300! I might have had a little bit left in the tank but playing it conservative since it is my first to maxing out.
    Bench Press: 200x1;205x1;215x1, 8m rest. First time benching 200! This seemed about right, I don't think I could have gotten any more weight on the bar.

    Weight: 198.7 lb

    1RM
    Squat: 300 lb
    Bench Press: 215 lb

    My numbers may not be amazing. But, 6 months ago the thought of lifting 300 lb seemed like a far-fetched idea. I could have done some things better along the way, but I'm happy where I am at now .
