    itsssme SSLP 2.0

    It's been five months since my last post in the forums (link below). During the autumn after England's first lockdown I did the programme (8 weeks LP, 5 weeks Vanilla TM) and ended up with the follwing lifts;

    Squat 1RM 155kg (341lb) 5RM 137.5kg (300lb)
    Deadlift 3RM 152.5kg (335lb) 5RM 142.5kg (313lb)
    Bench 1RM 90kg (198lb) 5RM 80kg (176lb)
    Press 3RM 62.5kg (137lb) 5RM 60kg 132lb)

    I was pleased with this but disappointed to be halted like that. This time round I'm hoping to do even better - I only gained 18lg going from 162lb to 180 in three months, at 6'3", so I know there are some easy gains to be made there... here's hoping for a long and fruitful run!

    PS: Thanks to the guys who followed and offered help last time! It was much appreciated.

    (24yr old male, 6'3" currently 74kg (163lb))

    - Squat: 3x5@65kg (143lb)
    - Press: 3x5@35kg (77lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@100kg (220lb)

    Squats felt very light (as they should), but my hamstrings were slightly crampy so I kept it light. Press was somewhat disappointing - though it is historically my worst lift (6'7" wingspan...). All that made up for though by a delightfully solid 2 plate deadlift. God-willing this is a sign of good things to come

    - Squat: 3x5@80kg (176lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@60kg (132lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@110kg (242lb)

    Session completed a day late as my brilliant idea to finish last session with some hamstring curls left me unable to walk for two days - still very sore today but I could reach below the knee with a flat back so I decided to go in and see. Ended up going up nicely for the squat and deadlift and was very pleased with the day 1 protocol for bench - fives felt good all the way up to a full plate...sign of things to come I hope.

    EDIT: I also bought micro plates yesterday - first time through my press stalled too fast from taking big jumps so I will be avoiding that this time.

    - Squat: 3x5@85kg (187lb)
    - Press: 3x5@40kg (88lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@120kg (264lb)

    I felt yesterday's pub trip during this session...press and deadlift especially were much harder than they should have been. Will do better next time.

    - Deadlift: 1x5@125kg (275lb)

    And today was tough too... all three lifts noticeably harder than last week. Maybe it was training after work for the first time? Maybe I just forgot how hard barbell training is? I guess we'll see

    - Squat: 3x5@95kg (209lb)
    - Press: 3x5@45kg (99lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@127.5kg (280lb)
    - Chin-Up: 7,5,5

    Press felt absurdly easy...squat and deadlift annoyingly hard.

    - Squat: 3x5@100kg (220lb)
    - Bench Press: 3x5@65kg (143lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x5@130kg (286lb)

    Squats are starting to feel like they used to and deadlifts felt much easier today than Thursday. However, Bench remains a technical shitshow - easy but oh so messy.

    - Squat: 3x5@105kg (231lb)
    - Press: 3x5@47.5kg (105lb)
    - Deadlift: 1x4@132.5kg, 1x1@132.5kg (292lb)
    - Chin-Up: 8, 5, 4

    Everything felt hard today - and a miss on the deadlift was the result. Totally avoidable too... my diet has NOT been good enough (quality or quantity) so I will be rectifying that immediately.

    - Bench Press: 3x5@67.5kg (148lb)
    - Power Clean: 5x3@50kg (115lb)

    Squat and Bench were heavy but manageable...cleans were 100% too light, but I wanted to allow for recovery before deadlift on Sunday.

    Came back and hit the deadlift - still right on the edge though. Need to continue working on my recovery.
