    Bw after training / before eating: 73.1 kg
    no change

    Squat: 107.5 kg 3 sets of 5
    got to squat in the safeties

    OHP: 52.5 kg 4, 4, 3
    this feels like technique misses - pre-miss reps all moved smoothly

    Chin ups: 88.1 kg (73.1 + 15) 5, 4, 4
    dead hang to chest touching bar. no energy left and no time to rest as had to get home

    well it's moving just in the wrong direction

    Squat: 110 kg 3 sets of 5
    no safeties again. vidoed, first set was depth throughout, next two had 2 high reps each, albeit with neither rhyme nor reason

    Bench: c.66 kg 3 sets of 5
    bar path was actually consistent and holy shit this felt as light as it should be! i'll micro load this to make sure my technique stays good. worst comes to worst, i'll just keep my bench on linear progression while everything else goes intermediate

    Deadlift: 145 kg set of 5
    this is a 4 rep and 5 rep PB. last two reps were a grind to get past the knee, but i wrote that about 125 three weeks ago! this is also within a rounding error of a double bodyweight deadlift - which means i should either eat more or start alternating rack pulls and haltings. i think eating more makes more sense

    better

    Squat: 112.5 kg 3 sets of 3
    put belt on. depth was perfect throughout, had to stop each set cos i'd literally run out of breath

    OHP: 50 kg 3 sets of 5
    reset and belted up. this feels much more stable, but kept on pushing the bar too far back for some reason

    Chin ups: 90.6 kg (73.1 + 17.5) 4, 3; bw for 5
    dead hang to chest touching bar. no energy left and no time to rest as had to get home. i'll repeat next time, if i get one set of 5 i'll progress it as top set + back offs. realistically not much LP left when I'm chinning bw + 25% for reps, would like to get 20 kg for 5 before i go TM here

    that's more like it

    Squat: 112.5 kg 3 sets of 5
    belt makes the stretch reflex almost painful

    Bench: 67.5 kg 3 sets of 5
    belted. arch was much easier to hold and weight felt light

    Deadlift: will do tomorrow
    entire deadlift area was taken up by group of what i assumed were weight watchers, but what were, based on the t shirts they were wearing, a team of 120 kg powerlifters working up to max singles at 100 kg.

    Starting with monday, I'm switching to advanced novice. So:

    Monday
    3 sets of 5 squat
    3 sets of 5 OHP / bench
    Chin ups

    Weds
    3 sets of 5 OHP / bench
    1 set of 5 deadlift
    Curls if i have time

    Friday
    3 sets of 5 squat
    3 sets of 5 OHP / bench
    Chin ups

    No light squats as:
    A. im not a 'motor moron' who needs to practise constantly
    B. even light squats piss me the fuck off. i'd literally need to be doing 60 kg working sets to not wanna curse mid set

    that's more like it

    Deadlift: 147.5 kg set of 4
    belted. lost balance backwards on 3rd rep, ground out 4th rep, didn't attempt 5th. kicking myself as might have had it - rep 4 was not really slower than rep 4 last time

    Bw after training / before eating: 73.7 kg
    last saturday was an aberration

    Squat: 115 kg 3 sets of 5
    belted. glad i don't have to do this again until friday

    OHP: 52.5 kg 3 sets of 5
    this felt absurdly easy - easier than 50 kg without a belt. might yet get 60 kg for reps and sets even at my comical bodyweight

    Chin ups: 83.7 kg (73.7 + 10) 3 sets of 5
    dead hang to chest touching bar. reset to last completed weight. might yet get + 20 kg on LP here

    better

    Bench: 70 kg 3 sets of 5
    belt makes the arch so much better

    Deadlift: 150 kg set of 3; 130 kg set of 3 opposite grip
    2 and 3 rep PB. Bar was oddly hard to hold, perhaps because i took it off the bench rack. belt really feels awkward

    Curls: 30? kg 3 sets of 6
    10 kg on each side of the curl bar. easy

    goddamit!

    Squat: 120 kg * 3; 110 kg * 3, 3
    had a brainfart and did 120. got stapled and realised i haven't been going deep enough. triples with 110 were perfect depth so i'll re-LP. sigh

    OHP: c.53.5 kg * 4, 4, 3
    i find myself using no layback whatsoever belted even when i'm grinding. reps 5 on sets 1 and 2 failed, yet i stayed bolt upright throughout

    Chin ups: 86.2 kg (73.7 + 12.5) * 5, 5, 5
    dead hang to chest touching bar. hard but did them. wanna atlas break 90 kg total weight for 3 sets of 5 before i leave LP

    nice

    Bench: 72.5 kg * 3, 3, 3
    lost arch on each set. stopped for safety reasons

    Chin ups: 88.8 kg (73.8 + 15) * 5, 5, 5
    dead hang to chest touching bar. hard but did them. last rep of last set was all sorts of bad (rubber necking, chin just barely over bar, maybe not dead hang)
