    Very happy with this session overall. Ball season has ended so now I can turn all my focus over to lifting.

    Squats moved well. Got too far bent over on my very last rep and had to push harder to get up.

    Presses were the easiest lift by far. They moved well. Going to attempt 5 more lbs next session.

    Deads felt quite heavy. The last two got a little too far forward and were harder than needed. Partly because I had my knee sleeves pulled down around to my ankles.

    Next session I’m going to only add 5lbs to squats, go for 210 on the bench and I’m going to add in the cleans. Likely to start at 150-175 on those.

    Body weight 252 this morn.

    When would you guys suggest adding in the light squat day?
    Well, since you're still adding weight to the bar each session and recovery doesn't seem to be an issue, no need to add a light day yet. Right now you seem to be making very good progress. Keep it up, but not to the point where you're completely beating yourself up. I think you'll know for yourself when it is time to add that light day.

    Thanks for the advice. That makes a lot of sense. Much appreciated!

    Squat 385x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Press 150x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Deadlift 415x5 (+10lbs PR)

    Body weight 253lbs

    Everything was awesome.

    Squats felt better today than 380 did. Glad too because I havenít been getting a lot of sleep.

    Presses definitely are slowing on final reps of each set but once I started focusing on the straight bar path it felt more natural.

    Deads felt heavy but moved really well until the last rep. Was letting breath out on the way down on a few of the reps. Going to focus on staying tight and breathing right.

    Also, another guy from my slo pitch team is going to train this off season. Heís never touched barbells and had his first session tonight in my garage gym. Looking forward to seeing his progress and developing a bit of a coaching eye. Hopefully heíll be joining these forums too.

    Great session and looking forward to the next one.

    Squat 390x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Bench 215x5, 212.5x5x2 (+5,+2.5lbs)
    Power Clean- Tomorrow

    Ran out of time to do the cleans. Hopefully will fit them in tomorrow.

    Squat was good. Itís a heavy weight but Iím staying tight and driving up with the hips hard out of the hole. Not feeling the need for a light day yet. I think I did one set with too much weight going into the elbow so it was a bit sore leading into benching.

    Bench was really tough at 215 so I decided now is the time for 2.5lb jumps from here on out.
    212.5 moved decently. Crazy how that little bit makes such a difference. Iíve never micro loaded but Iím hoping there is continued gains. My plan is to add a 4th set once I start to stall on the micro loading jumps.

    Power Clean
    120x3x5

    Easy work. Was a bit beat up and sore from yesterday so taking my time. Need to eat more protein I suspect.

    Squat 400x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Bench 215x5x3 (+2.5lbs)

    Squats moved well but really made my left elbow sore. I need to find out if Iím doing something wrong with my grip, width or elbow angle. I still have more to go on LP with these but only if my elbow cooperates. Very happy to hit 400!

    Bench was hard and slow. Elbow soreness on top of that sucked. Decided to pass on cleans or deads for today. Hopefully I can get a full session in next time.

    Weight is 258 and Iíve been using a scoop of creatine every day for the last 4 days.

    If anyone has any advice on dealing with the inflamed elbows after squats, Iíd love to hear it.

    Congrats on your 400!
    I have had something similar. To me it just was temporary and I did a couple of workouts with less stress on elbows. Pain went away within a week and never came back.
    It might be an adaptation thing which just takes time to build both, your elbow stress tolerance and sufficient shoulder/wrist/elbow flexibility for low-bar position.
    Might also be your form related cause. If the bar is too much supported by your wrists instead of your back puts more pressure on elbows in an uncomfortable elbow position. Or if your scapula is not fully retracted then you do not have such a good Ďshelfí on your upper back for low bar support and also your elbows would need to bend backwards more putting them into an uncomfortable position.

    But Iím not an expert by any means. These are just my thoughts based on the very little experience I have so far and what I have learned from materials Iíve studied
