    As the title states, i did mike matthews year one challenge, loved it, switched to his beyond bigger leaner stronger, it seems to be too much volume for me, so i'm going to do NLP and transition into some kind of old man Texas method i guess, but we will see where NLP takes me, i'm a huge fan of SS, rip, the crew and all things simple and effective. The biggest struggle for me is going to be NOT going to the gym 5 days a week, kinda fell in love with training, but hopefully i can find a 4ish day a week program after NLP plateau's. everything here is going to be in pounds
    Current 1rm's calculated from last successful 3 rep sets are @ Bench-222, press-159, dead-365, squat-318, as soon as the vertigo fades i should be back in the gym in a day or two.
    Any advice on the starting weights or anything is appreciated.
    Gonna start NLP with @ 60% of those 1rm numbers and see what happens

    First day of NLP, 6-30-20, just working up to a set of five, didn't do sets across anything
    Squat-worked up to 265 for 5 reps, probably had more but my knee twitched in and somebody was waiting on the rack
    Press-worked up to 135 for 5, not much left there but didn't rest long enough either, my form is shite, but I'll work on that, should have time for vids thursday
    Deadlift, put 315 on and got 5, the kippers were getting grumpy so I left it there, had some more but need to focus on getting my back set better

    Squat 270/5/3- last rep was iffy on all three sets, took vids, will post
    Bench
    Worked up to 175/5/3, felt decent, need better leg drive and breath properly
    Dead
    320/5/1- first one felt great last four were a prayer, I need to slow down, did good until the deadlift, need to be more patient, took a vid, scared to look at it

    7-6-20:
    Squat 275x5x3- felt good, last rep was probably too high rpe but made it

    Press 140x5x3- first set was rough, second two went up easier, still need to work on form

    Dead 325x5x1- whole set had me psyched out, scared of it, pulled ok, last rep was rough, not use to not warming up to get the belt comfy
    Gotta find 1.25lb plates
