    Checking out your logs for the first time, your progress is absolutely great. I'm going to try to follow in your footsteps in 2021.

    How's your press doing? I saw you reached 300 and 400 on squat and bench, but you haven't updated your press recently. Did you try a 1RM before the new year?

    Not much to report the first two weeks. I took about a week off, then did some light days to work out the soreness. A few days ago I tried to run my deadlift up to a 1 RM as well but while I was pulling 405 for a warmup I felt a lump in my right hand near the pinky finger. Kind of painful to the touch. Seems like something that might have burst so I decided not to pull anymore and just waiting on it to resolve right now.

    1/14

    Squat
    370 x 5 - PR
    335 x 5
    335 x 5

    Bench Press
    250 x 5
    250 x 4
    225 x 5

    Batbat I never tried to 1 RM my Press. It was really the least important lift to me. A few days ago I hit 170 x 4, without really training it much. I think with a few weeks of focus on it I could get to 185 x 3 and probably throw up an ugly 200 for a single. Iíll just keep it on LP for a while most likely. Really glad I found this program and ran it. Itís no bullshit and I could have fucked around for years without hitting these numbers.

    I weigh about 225 right now(Iíve hit 230). I never lost an inch on my waist, but I did get stronger than ever.

    Not really sure where to set my goals for this year. I do not want to buy new pants, shirts, etc so likely some kind of fat loss is in order. Would be cool have squat work sets at 405 this year, and of course I still need to pull 500 once this hand gets healed up.

    1/20 - This was a very frustrated and impatient training session.

    Bench press
    255 x 4
    255 x 5
    255 x 3


    Deadlift
    405 x 3
    405 x 1
    405 x 1 - feels like I strained both my glutes pulling this last one. Hope I learn the lesson and stay patient with my training.

    Light squat day. All I had time for. Didnít have any lingering effects from pulling 405 last week so thatís encouraging.

    1/30
    Squat
    390 x 4 - Iím a dumbass and mis-loaded the bar. I didnít realize this until I watched the video back. Was trying to load 380 for a 5 rep set. The 4th rep was about four seconds of hard pushing from the bottom to the top of the rep.

    Thanks for keeping a detailed log! There's a lot of information here that's going to be very helpful for me, so I went ahead and subscribed to keep up.

    One question, if you don't mind: how beneficial was it to have a light squat day on deadlift day? I'm considering it for myself and I saw you had that line up several times. (Apologies if you commented on it and I missed it.)
