    - Squat: 3x5@127.5kg (280lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@75kg (165lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@80kg (176lb)
    - Halting Deadlift: 1x5@70kg (154lb)

    Squat and Bench both felt great, setting me up to finally set some new PRs next week. Tried another DL variation today, stayed super light (and beltless) as per suggestion in the grey book. Was fun though!

    - Squat: 3x5@130kg (286lb)
    - Press: 3x5@56kg (123lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@145kg (319lb)
    - Chin-Ups: 10, 10, 5

    Finally into PR territory after the lockdown. Both the deadlift and Press have now overtaken my lifts from the autumn and the bench and squat should follow later in the week. That said...this session utterly wrecked me...

    - Light Squat: 3x5@105kg (231lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@76kg (167lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@82.5kg (181lb)

    Light Squats felt murderously heavy. But a new Bench PR 3x5 made up for it. Then Power Cleans just went on for ever...I'm tired.

    - Squat: 3x5@132.5kg (291lb)
    - Press: 3x5@57.5kg (126lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x3, 1x1@147.5kg (324lb)

    And with today's squats, I have now surpassed where I finished previous LP in every lift. Worked well through the session and everything felt great, then my body just checked out on deadlift number 4...didn't even get it off the ground. I took a full three mins rest before a "quick" single and had to take a knee after. I have nine days off work now so I'm hoping that some extra sleep and reduced stress might be helpful in making a little more progress.

    - Squat: 3x5@135kg (297lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@77.5kg (170lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@85kg (187lb)

    Bench felt incredible. Squats were psychologically brutal - really did not want to get under the bar. I did a double on my first set then racked the weight, talked myself back up and then hit 3x5 with no misses...I am now gonna need to dig deep on saturday for 3x5 at 300lbs! (Power cleans were easy as pie)

    - High Bar Squat: 4x5@100kg (220lb)
    - Press: 5, 3, 3, 2, 2@58.5kg 1x1@63.5kg (128lb, 139lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@147.5kg (324lb)
    - Chin-Ups: 10, 10, 8

    Hit the deadlift I missed last time, and I'm trying some high-bar squats on the light day (beltless) as a way to give my shoulders a little bit of a break. Presses were scary. I started to black out on the second and third sets as the weight was coming back down. I moved on to deadlifts, then came back and hit the missing reps just fine, but definitely still a little shaken.

    - Squat: 3x5@137.5kg (302lb)
    - Bench Press: 1x3@78.5kg, 5x5@70kg (172lb, 154lb)
    - Power Clean: 4x2@87.5kg (192lb)

    Squat sets across at 300lb is a nice milestone, but I have been so worn out psychologically by workouts recently that I kind of let the rest of the session go haywire. My spotter grabbed the bar on rep 4 and I didn't feel like asking him again, so I did 5x5 lighter instead, then cut the reps on cleans for essentially no reason. Very frustrating.

    W9D1

    - Squat: 3x5@140kg (308lb)
    - Press: 5x5@52.5kg (115lb)
    - Deadlift: 3, 1, 1@150kg (330lb)
    - Chin-Ups: 10, 10, 10

    Squatting 3 plates (UK style) for sets across is cool, a group of grunting dumbbell shruggers even felt the need to tell me they approved. I am moving to a condensed TM for upper body now, and given that I seem increasingly unable to string two successful deadlift workouts together, I may commute that too. Very happy overall today though!

    Dude, you're killing it now. In PR territory for 5s on squats, and very close on all the rest, no?

    Squats:

    Looks like you've already introduced a light midweek squat. Do you think you're getting close to top/drop work?

    Like, 142.5kg x5, 130-135kg x5x2, twice a week. Drives your top set up 5kg per week while being slightly less soul-crushing.

    Deadlift:

    You've got PC in there for a light pull. For your heavy deadlifts, perhaps you're in 2x3 territory? Probably do 147.5kg for two triples, to start. Slightly less weight for a tiny break, but you end up doing 6 reps so it's still a volume PR probably. Then when 2x3 peters out, move to 1x3/2x3. Like, say your top triple is 165kg. Take 165x3, 135x3x2 (roughly 80%; for deadlifts a slightly steeper backoff is often advisable).

    Should be plenty room for PRs in your LP tank still before you jump full-foot into intermediate stuff.

    Hey Geoff! Thanks for the advice, I will begin doing just that with squats and deadlifts on Saturday!

    W9D2

    - High Bar Squat: 4x5@105kg (231lb)
    - Press: 5x1@62.5kg (137lb)
    - Bench Press: 4, 3@78.5kg (172lb)
    - Power Clean: 4x2@90kg (198lb)

    End of cycle one of the Delgadillo pressing recommendations - singles were fun! I meant to bench 1x5 but when my spotter turned around and started chatting to the guy behind him I got distracted and missed it. Hit a smooth triple for penance and moved on with life. Did high bar again as I really like the rest for my shoulders. Looking forward to starting the new squat/dead system on Saturday!
