    Wow. What a journey.

    I was struck down by knee tendonitis hard, but i kept training my deadlift and bench. Using the same idea, Stress + Recovery = adaption and with more recovery ability i uppee the frequency of my deadlift and bench and went on to do a push pull comp in December.

    I VERY nearly made 150kg bench! And narrowly missed 260kg deadlift lol. Taking away a 142.5kg and 252.5kg result respectively. I hit many all time PR's asking the way including a monster 235kg x3 deadlift, and 135kg x3 bench press!

    Post comp i was going on 4 months old no squatting.... and was feeling great, so I'm back into that now.

    Training DAILY, which i am 100% certain with rustle a few jimmies here lol. Using the GCZL General Gainz framework....37 days in a row so far and feeling awesome.

    Anyway, just thought I'd throw up an update for anyone interested, or if anyone was followed the log back then. I never left the forums, just stopped logging here. I'd be happy to copy in my entire training log leading to the push/pull comp if anyone wanted to see it.

    For now my focus is on 3 things, Press (main focus), squat and deadlifts with a full pronated grip again. With goals of a 100kg press, 200kg squat, 200kg full grip deadlift (usually use mixed). Really sick of benching at the moment lol.

    Deficit pushups:

    Bw x 12
    Bw x 12
    Bw x 10

    Great session!
    Felt very strong.... these weights feeling great now, ill add a bit more volume for a few more sessions then up it again.

    Accessories were hard! Got same reps on curls as previous workout with this weight...added a extra set to the pushups.

    A quick note on the pushups, im using a 200 tempo on them. Very Brutal little assistance exercise.

    Also, floor press is my main bench variation, ie im not doing Any regular benching this cycle.

    Im using the General Gainz framework as laid out by GZCL on his blog posts. It will evolve over time as i work things out, and also as goals evolve etc.

    For now my workouts are thus:
    Workout 1a.
    Squats. Working the reps from 3 to 6 over about 8 or 9 workouts.
    Deadlift. same as above.

    Workout 2a.
    Press. Same as above.
    Floor press. Same as above.

    Workout 1b.
    Squats. Working the reps from 6 to 10 over a similar amount of workouts.
    Deadlifts. Same as above.

    Workout 2b.
    Press. Same as Workout 1b.
    Floor press. Ditto.

    Accessories completed days. 2-4 exercises trying to target the respective lifts from those days mostly.

    Training Every, single, day. Yep. 44 days in now, and feeling strong, recovering just fine. The frequency is making all lifts feel very crisp, in much the same way as the old novice LP. Im finding this progression comfortable. It seems long and drawn out, but with sessions daily, its not really at all. Basically throwing out the traditional 7 day week, replacing it with 4.

    52.5x3

    63x5
    63x2
    63x2

    62x3 got distracted...took 3 minutes rest instead of 90 seconds, so took an extra rep.

    Floor Press:

    60x8
    80x5
    100x3

    115x5
    115x2
    115x2
    115x2
    115x2

    First set was hard! About the same as last time, definitely no improvement!! Haha.

    Deficit Pushups:

    15
    15
    13
    10

    Building the volume, thinking about how to make these harder when the time comes. I can definitely raise the boxes another inch without any issue to my shoulders. Maybe ill go that way, maybe ill chage the exercise. Its definately hitting my chesticles harder than regular bench ever does.

    Another decent day. Press felt hard, but on the video was same, if not easier than this weight was 4 days ago.


    Today:

    Squats:

    20x5
    60x5
    80x5
    100x3

    115x8
    115x4
    115x4
    115x4
    115x4
    115x4
    115x4

    Deadlift:

    100x5
    140x3

    147.5x8
    147.5x4
    147.5x4
    147.5x4
    147.5x4
    147.5x4
    147.5x4

    So done. Pretty tired today from work. Such is life. Still stuck to 90 second rest periods...was hard on squats haha. Was easy AF on deadlift. Some of the deadlift sets were completed on just 60 seconds rest. Its still very light for me on both lifts.

    Dead.
    Great session. Movement quality on floor press was much improved! Which made for a faster session with those, being more efficient.

    Press was good also, had a few reps in the tank on the set of 8. Not a bad thing.

    Curls were up 4 reps
    Pushups up 1 rep.

    Progression all around.
