    Squats were fucking hard. On film they were fine...LOL. So i just kept going and they just kept coming. Left knee wasnt crazy about the 5th set. See how we go, easy to drop back to 4 if i need to. Is only once a week the 5x5 in any case.

    Bench was tiring! Making a greater effort with the technique after studying some more. Literally couldnt get any tighter today, scaps as close to each other as possible, feet back and under. So tight during the warmups i had trouble getting the bar to touch my chest...which is what im aiming for.

    Deads felt good. All double overhand. Today signalled the beginning of the first cycle of The Texas method. Modified slightly with the deadlifts on volume day instead of an accessory or cleans. And there will be no snatching...

    Good day really. Light day on Wednesday, before a heavy set of 5 on Friday with 140kg, 97.5 on bench, and 180 on deads. Should be fun.

    Good session. Mostly a light day. But everything felt pretty good. Ive added bent row now (still cant chin....), didnt know where to start, 80kg felt like a good spot.

    Paused squats were good. I like these for really engraining good positioning. 2x5 keeping them low stress.

    Press was also light. Curls keep increasing...rpe 7 max on any set. Maybe rpe 8 on the last, felt slightly harder. SRA working super well with the 8's and the 5's. Being a small (thats what she said) muscle group, recovery is nothing. Still cant do a fucken chinup without pain in my right tricep. Tried to losen it all up, including lats, to see if it would help - did nothing. Rows dont hurt, so in they go in lieu of a 3rd deadlift.
