    I weirdly got less less total reps on my OHP than I did last week. Don't know what to make of that. Otherwise training is going steady.

    9/8
    Warm-up sets before each top set: empty bar 2x5 (135 lbs 1x5 for deadlifts), ~40%x5, ~60%x3, ~80x2
    Squat: 255x5x3
    OHP: 125x4, 4, 3
    Deadlift: 315x5

    Soooo close on my bench reps, but I missed them by one rep getting stuck right before the lockout. Depressing stuff. I'm debating if it's too early to start using microweights for my presses yet, I'll give them each one more go around and see.

    Tough call on the micro loading. What are you rest periods?

    About 3-5 minutes, more often 5 minutes than 3.

    You could try 7-15 minutes. Longer rest periods make a big difference when things are getting heavy. Its at least worth trying before you micro load. Are you using creatine?

    I'll try it as I get back to the weights I deloaded from. I am not using creatine.

    Got over 265 on my squats, feeling good. Finally got my lifting belt (Starting Strength brand of course)and I'm learning to use it. Bit pinchy at the bottom on my belly but I'll get used to it.

    Warm-up sets before each top set: empty bar 2x5 (135 lbs 1x5 for deadlifts), ~40%x5, ~60%x3, ~80x2
    Squat: 265x5x3
    OHP: 115x5x3
    Deadlift: 320x5

    Success! I cleared power cleans at 110 lbs. Not an impressive number in the least, but it's a hill I overcame.

    Aaand splat, I'm stuck on 325 for deadlifts again. If I cannot get past it this coming Wednesday I think I'll start to alternate with power cleans on Day A and do chins on Day B.

    I missed my squats and my last set of power cleans. Squats I tried waiting longer (7-8 minutes instead of 5) and I still missed, I think it may be time to introduce a light day in the middle of the week, we'll see next training day. For power cleans all my sets were tough but manageable, but the last set I could not generate enough power to get the damn bar up to my shoulders. I fear I may need to microload power cleans at 2.5 lbs a session, but I'm a bit ashamed that it might be happening now instead of closer to or at 135.

    Warm-up sets before each top set: empty bar 2x5, ~40%x5, ~60%x3, ~80x2
    Squat: 280x5, 3, 2
    Bench: 180x5x3
    Power Clean: 115x3, 3, 3, 3, 0
