    - Squat: 3x5@112.5kg (247lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@70kg (154lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@60kg (132lb)
    - Sumo Deadlift: 1x5@100kg (220lb)

    First good session in a while... Squats and Bench both felt easier than last time at a higher weight and Power Cleans once again felt like nothing (because they are... ). Did the sumo at the end just out of curiosity because a friend was there- stayed beltless and far from failure to avoid affecting recovery, was strange but fun.

    W4D2

    - Squat: 3x5@115kg (253lb)
    - Press: 3, 5, 5, 2@52.5kg (115lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@135kg (297lb)
    - Chin-Ups: 9, 6, 5

    Another good session in the books, feel like I'm picking up steam. I misgrooved the first rep of the first set on press. Adjusted and crushed the next two sets, then a quick double to make up the reps.

    - Squat: 3x5@117.5kg (258lb)
    - Bench Press: 5,5,4,1@72.5kg (159lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@65kg (143lb)

    Wimped out on bench... very annoying, walked round the room, hit the last rep then did 2x8 close grip as some sort of self-imposed punishment. Otherwise a great easy session.

    Good evening!

    I can relate to the feeling on the bench... Im currently in week 9, so my technique is getting better though

    Just need to ask how long you rest between sets on the bench? For me, if I feel I may miss a rep, I rest 5+ minutes, and it helps. I also got some microplates from Eleiko in 0,5 and 0,25kg. I think I went from 2,5kg to 1,5 kg around your weight, and now I am on just 1kg pr session. Still resting about 5-6 minutes.

    Keep on the good work!

    Congrats on making it 9 weeks in! I was on week 13 when the gyms closed last time, hoping to get back there, but slowly slowly Thanks for the ideas, I rest about 4mins at the moment, intra-workout recovery isn't an issue yet though, I just HORRIBLY misgrooved rep 4... During my last run I got to about five mins rest.

    W5D1

    - Squat: 3x5@120kg (264lb)
    - Press: 3x5@52.5kg (115lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@137.5kg (302lb)
    - Chin-Ups: 9, 7, 4

    Crushed today - everything felt better than the previous time (except I did NOT rest long enough for the last set of Chins) and it's nice to be back over 300lb in the deadlift. Will switch to 1kg jumps on Press for next time though.

    So I Just realised it's now 1 month since I came back. Posting a progress note here for my own reference - I accept it's nothing crazy...

    Squat: 65kg -> 120kg = +55kg (121lb)
    Press: 35kg -> 52.5kg = +17.5kg (38lb)
    Bench Press: 60kg -> 72.5kg = +12.5kg (27lb)
    Deadlift: 100kg -> 137.5kg = +37.5kg (82lb)

    - Light Squat: 3x5@100kg (220lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@72.5kg (159lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@70kg (154lb)
    - Sumo Deadlift: 1x5@110kg (242lb)

    Came back and crushed the bench workout - three minutes rest, at least one in the tank each set. Felt good. Everything else was light and comfortable, looking forward to that three-plate deadlift (hopefully) on Saturday! (FYI still playing with the sumo beltless just because the power cleans are SO light I feel a bit dumb doing them...will be more disciplined as challenge increases...)

    W6D1

    - Squat: 3x5@125kg (275lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@73.5kg (161lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@75kg (165lb)
    - Sumo Deadlift: 1x5@115kg (253lb)

    This was hard - no set felt at risk of failure, but everything felt emotionally draining. Been super stressed at work and I think it's catching up to me...should improve in a couple of weeks, just got to stick it out.

    - Deadlift: 1x5:142.5kg (313lb)

    Great session. Unusually light squats actually felt light... Press felt good and best set of deadlifts I've done in a minute. Finally next week I get to try a PR (deadlift)!
