    Day 1 - 219#

    Squat 290# - this equals my all time PR
    Bench 210#
    DL 350#
    Chins, 5, 7, 5, 4

    This was a 2 hour workout. I bit long but had about 7 min rest periods during the squat. I think I was just not in a hurry. I could have done DL warmups while benching.

    The 3 questions... food would be my only issue if I had one. I really dont want to go up in weight though. Back to eating clean now that the holidays are over.

    Day 2 - 219#

    Squat 295# - PR
    Press 137.5#
    DL - 350#

    Thought the 5 lb PR would be harder than it was. If I wasn't out of town for a week I could PR in two days. Will be back Saturday.

    My DL should really be around 400#. I've been making all 10# jumps to hurry it up.

    The bench is my weak link. Really want this at 250# this year.

    Jan 17th - Day 3

    Squat 285#
    Bench 205#
    Dead 360#
    Chins
    -50 - 5
    Non assist - 8, 6, 6

    I feel like it takes three workouts from a week off to feel strong again. I'll hit 300x3x5 no problem next week. I have still not changed my diet. I'm eating more, I just am not counting calories. I'm sure my protein is not 200 grams a day. I always get great sleep and My rest between sets is always fine. I use a timer and just go by how I feel.

    Bringing the power clean back in starting next week. Let see how the shoulder does.

    Long time no post... but thought I would add an update. Third real run at the NLP and I am now moving into some intermediate programming with some of my lifts. Squats, DL and press. I cannot pull off a raise 3 times a week. Im going into a HLM. Still rehabing my shoulder and have gone to dumbell presses for the interm. I tested a 1 rep pr at the gym just for fun. I think I could have done a bit more with the motivation of some people, but Im still amazed at what the NLP will produce. I know I am still not eating enough... but I dont really want to go much past 225, at least right now.

    Matthew Spicka - Strength Level

    DL PR 445# x 1
    SQ PR 365# x 1
    Press PR 175# x1

    Get my bench back and I will for sure hit my first goal of 500, 400, 300, 200
