    Squat:
    220lbs x 5r - 225 x 5r - 227 x 5r

    This is the last squat of 2021 and it has been a year of struggle to get past 235 without incurring hamstring injury. 1st injury took place in March and was with the left leg. It took 12 weeks to heal. Then shortly after I had gotten back up to 235 the right leg went - again hamstring. I had to begin the healing again. And once again after getting close to the 235 the right leg went again - not as bad as the 1st time but bad enough that walking was painful. With the 2 1st injuries, either leg was not able to take weight climbing stairs.

    So today, as I am once again at the cusp of 235 I was tempted to rack up the bar and go for it, but a little voice in the back of my head took over the conversation and I decided to go with small jumps over the course of the 3 sets and see how the leg responds. As I type this, it feels ok. In regards to how the right leg feels most of the time, it is always tight and I get cramps in it, mostly at night in bed, but aside from that is completely useable.

    DL:
    No DL today as I did a big (for me) Rack Pull on Monday.

    I have that same issue on my squat. Anytime it would get to 315+ I'd unrack it and be filled with doubts. I avoid the issue now by not having a squat rack lol

    I am eager to see a 315 Mr Bingley. If I stay safe there is a chance for next year

    Happy New Year to you!

    starting strength coach development program
    Jan 3 2022

    I am conducting an experiment for the beginning of '22. I have some real joint issues, especially in my shoulders. For this week I am changing my routine to light weight/high volume and will judge the results at the end of the month. For next week I will revert to my normal 4 day split routine.

    When I 1st hurt my left hamstring my coach put me on the Star Protocol to assist healing - ultra low weight/ultra high reps. I won't pretend to understand all the ins and outs but it was effective. Mind you that was a muscle injury and right now my joints just hurt. Perhaps a slightly modified version will assist in helping old joints limber up!

    And oh yeah... I almost don't want to mention this... but I start some low impact Yoga tonight. The goal here is just to loosen up as I feel I am generally tightening up.

    Press:
    55lbs - 3s x 12r

    Bench:
    90lbs - 3s x 12r

    Squat - SSB:
    100lbs - 3s x 12r

    DL:
    145lbs - 1s x 6r
