    Karelipoeg, I appreciate the advice. Iím going to practice a narrow grip and possibly different hand grip. Hopefully that does the trick.
    Thanks!

    Bicep curls 70x5x3
    Assisted Chins (-85lb) 5x3 -Purple 50, Green 35 bands

    Adding one day in before the mains. Elbow is slightly sore still.
    Straight up want stronger and bigger biceps. Hopefully this is a good way to go about it.

    Squat 405x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Press 160x5x3 (+5lbs)
    Deadlift 435x5 (+10lbs)

    Elbow was much better in the squats. I wrapped and ensured the wrists were straight.
    Deads were heavy AF.

    Overall very happy with these PRís and how the program is going for me.

    2 of my buddies from my ball team were also lifting in my garage gym tonight. Had a great time. Both are making big progress.

    Very nice job Jared!
    If you can, upload a photo of your home gym to inspire us. i'm building my own here, but It's still a modest one. haha

    Thanks Filipe

    Squat 410x5 (+5lbs) Backoff 385x5 (-25lbs)
    Bench 217.5x5x3 (+2.5lbs)
    Power Cleans 185x3
    Rows 185x5x3

    Elbow was sore again in the squats so I backed off. Feeling a bit fatigued.

    Bench felt heavy but I powered through. I think I have more 2.5lbs jumps in me.

    Power cleans are too taxing at this weight. I donít have bumpers and I have to keep quiet from dropping the bar. It beats up my elbows, wrists and thighs to be catching them.

    Rows were a new lift for me. Since I canít drop them down hard like Rip teaches, I modified.
    Itís basically a variation of a paused dead with exploding row to the belly button. You also keep the hips high and bent over.

    Had another buddy come to train for his first time. He hit a 115lb squat for sets, 90 bench and 145 deads.
    I think thatís 5 friends now that Iíve introduced to SS and are all getting stronger. Itís awesome.

    Good job! Sounds like you are about to open a gym over there

    Results from this run of LP (sets of 5):
    8 weeks total
    Squats 275 to 410
    Bench 175 to 220
    Press 135 to 160
    Deads 315 to 435

    Body weight 245-260 (started supplementing creatine which was a big portion of the weight gain).

    Iím still making progress most workouts and could be considered a novice, however Iím going to not ďrun it outĒ and drive myself into the dirt. Iím going to adjust to RPE based intermediate training now and try out Barbell Medicineís programming.

    Also going to focus on a weight cut while trying to still improve my numbers. Iíll be starting a separate log in the intermediate section. Would like to get my belly under 40Ē as itís 48Ē currently and hoping to get BF down to 15% by April next year.

    Thanks for following along.

    awesome progress! Is this your first time with an RPE based program? I'm interested to see how long it takes to get a feel for it.

    Yes itís the first time.
    Right now Iím lifting to leave two work set reps left in the tank on the final set.

    So last week my programming worked out like this:
    Sunday
    Squat 395x4, 400x4, 415x4 (4@6, 4@7, 4@8)
    Bench 165x10, 170x10, 180x10 (10@6, 10@7, 10@8)
    Deadlift 345x8x2 (8@6, 8@7, 8@8)

    Tuesday
    Press 150x4, 160x4x2, 165x4 (4@6, 4@7, 4@8)
    Squat 350x7, 355x7, 360x7 (7@6, 7@7, 7@8)
    Rows 150x10, 155x10, 170x10 (10@6, 10@7, 10@8)

    Thursday
    Deadlift 400x4, 415x4, 435x4 (4@6, 4@7, 4@8)
    Bench 170x8, 185x8, 195x8 (8@6, 8@7, 8@8)
    Squat 300x10, 325x10, 340x1 (10@6, 10@7, 10@8)

    I really liked still feeling like I had 2 reps left on my heaviest work sets and I still made jumps on my estimated 1 rep maxes as Iím using an RPE calculator app to help with the target work set weights.
    My estimates moved by the following:

    Squat 490-500
    Bench 255-260
    Press 185-190
    Deadlift 525-535

    So my goal is to still be ďmakingĒ the 5-10 lbs a week on the squats and deads and 2.5-5lbs on the bench and press, but Iíll be doing it without having to always exert maximal effort, which is what I really donít enjoy about late stage or advanced NLP. These jumps will come from the estimated 1 rep max calculations.

    This seems to be the way that most advanced and experienced lifters calculate strength gains anyways. RPE is not nearly as complicated as I first thought and having the calculator app makes it very simple.

    Iím not going to keep updating this log because itís no longer SS NLP.
