    Struggling to eat due to illness, but Ive managed to get up to 197lbs body weight before I got sick. Holding steady for now.

    Chins: I know YNDTP, but you can kiss my ass. I like chins and so far the same logic that works on all the other lifts is working on the chins. Lets see how far I can go while adding 2.5 to 5 pounds per workout to my belt.

    Strep be damned, I’m trained anyway:

    Squat: 3x5x210
    Puked a little, and then...
    Bench: 3x5x165
    Clean: 5x3x160
    Chins: 3x5x232

    Cleans were easy, but I need to focus on getting the bar in the correct hold location.

    8/5/19

    Squat: 3x5x220
    Bench: 3x5x170
    Clean: 3x5x165
    Chins: 3x5x237

    8/10/19

    Press: 3x5x135
    Dead: 1x5x295
    Chins: 3x5x242

    8/12/19

    8/14/19: Sleep deprivation, neglected diet, and work conditions finally took their toll. I’m on mandatory overtime plus the boy’s football season is in full swing. Getting 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night. Today I had to clean out the wheel and flap wells and apply CIC, which means I was sucking oxygen throw a respirator all day and getting drench in chemicals that make my skin burn. I was lucky that I didn’t get hurt attempting my presses. After my squats I done, stick a fork in me.
    Squat: 3x5x235
    Press: Failure
    Dead: Failure
    Chins: Failure

    8/17/19
    Squat: 3x5x240
    Bench: 3x5x180
    Cleans: 5x3x175
    Chins: 2x5x248 (something is wrong with my left arm when pulling, extreme pain prevented my third set)

    Observations
    Press: Its getting harder and harder to make 5lb jumps. I think microloading is just around the corner.
    Chins: My experiment it coming to an end, much like the press, it’s getting harder and harder plus some injury like pain.
    Cleans: I’m struggling to get my legs to NOT STAGGER. When I was a kid I fell over and busted up my face pretty bad doing cleans. Ever since I have lunged at the bottom to give myself better stability. Hard habit to break.
    Squat: Easy
    Dead: Easy
    Bench: Easy

    Still on overtime. The wife has committed to helping streamline activities to get more sleep in. How awesome is that!

    Default Chin Video

    Some of my friends think Im full of shit about my chin ups, and I suspect than many of you are in the same boat. So I made a video, set of 5, 35lb Rogue bounce plate between my legs:

    I'm not sure why you would think we doubt you about chins or even that they are off base. I find your chins to be very impressive. Keep up the good work.
