    Sick kids galore yet again. This has been a crazy autumn. Thankfully, nothing serious for any of them. I know some families with kids in the hospital due to all the viruses circulating. I guess this is what happens when you lockdown and the munchkins don't get their immune systems exercised.

    I skipped today. Not feeling well, and could use the extra recovery.

    Had to wait 60 seconds to get the last bench rep done. While I was resting before my bench work set a guy asked me to spot him for his 95lb bench work set. He was in his early 20's, so he'll probably be lifting heavier than me in no time.

    Squat: 5x5 @ 235

    Repeating Squat and Deadlift weights this week. Depending on how I feel after Sunday's workout and my recovery, I may do Rack-Pulls instead of Deadlift next week.

    Squat: 1x5 @ 260
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 315

    The lifts went smoothly. I felt better than expected, likely because this time I'm not fighting off some cold or flu the kids brought home from school.

    Not much to add. When I couldn't complete a work set I waited 60 seconds to finish the final reps. I typically wait 5 minutes between full work sets.

    I have a bit of a muscle twinge in my back. I seemed to have gotten it reaching for something high up right after I woke up yesterday. Possibly due to a mix of sleep position and stiff muscles right after waking up. So far it isn't interfering with anything, but I am making sure to keep my torso more firm when doing bending or reaching to avoid any further irritation of it.

    Squat: 5x5 @ 240

    The back twinge was still there, but didn't interfere. Last week I reviewed the squat form via a number of videos and the blue book. I made sure to widen my stance a little and turn my knees out more, and the results have been much better leg recovery. I also do the squat down hands pressed together with elbows pushing out my knees before my warmup to get the right stance in mind, which seems to help also.

    I have been remiss in posting my workouts. So I will now try to catch up. In quick summary, I had a bit of a setback with deadlifts, because I've been doing them touch and go instead of resetting on each rep. I dropped some weight and I am still working my way back up to where I was at 315. I've also been trying to avoid using straps, and I've also been doing lat pulls to improve my grip strength, because I'd prefer to lift without the grip aids if possible. It'll be interesting to see how long I can last.

    A few notes to start. Where I repeat weights below it is because I wasn't able to complete the full number of reps in the workset on the previous workout for that lift (except for squats which I am progressing slowly until I have my deads fixed). I now have figured out how to track that better with the app I use, so I should be able to track that going forward.

    Squat: 1x5 @ 265
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 290


    Which brings me to today. I don't think I was sufficiently recovered, because I was not able to repeat Jan 2's bench numbers, and my press numbers were also off. This might be due to a mix of my deadlifts being too close with not enough recovery time since I did them on Jan 2 and 4, and maybe needing more a little more sleep. My thought was to start my cycle with the most intense workout of the week, but that may not be a good idea.
