    10 days off from training, letting my banged-up knee heal up, and just doing a general deload. Went in today and got back at it.

    3x5 long jump

    Squat: was supposed to do 7x5 at 235 lbs, with a minute between sets, but felt like I was babying the sore knee a little so I dialed it down. I did something like 5, 3, 3, 2, 2 with the 235. Didn't push anything.

    Paused Bench: 170x5, 200x5, 225x5, 265x1. Wanted two or three on that last set, but was a bit off from not training.

    Chinups +25 lbs: 5x5

    2x25 side bends with 45 lbs

    100 triceps pushdowns with 85 lbs

    Felt ok considering the time off. I'm finally smart enough to not push injuries too much.
    That's always a hard line to toe, wanting to not be a pussy vs wanting to not be a dumbass. Ego and drive can be a hindrance more than a help there in so many ways.

    Solid work on the bench, man. Jealous of the 265 paused.

            very nice man....165 is freaking heavy as hell. I cant see why it feels the world shifts between 155 and 165.

            • BBS Big 5. Progression all the way around, except for overhead press, which was just about the same as last week (same weight/same TUL). Total workout was 8m 30s

                I'm competing in a meet that goes squat-press-deadlift. Hoping to get it up to 180+ by 10/25!

                • Undecided! Yesterday I did 3 miles, and a bit surprised at the relative ease since I haven't done much cardio since march. Instead electing to concentrate on bodyweight exercises, pullups and carrying heavy stuff around the house...

                  • Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 4, week 2 (3/3/3), Workout B

                    Added "big but boring" for Trap Bar dead lift. Not bad. Rows were too easy, so will pad that by 10 additional pounds going forward.

                    The only scary part is that I failed on the 4th rep on the last set for both squats and trap bar dead lifts.

                    "5/3/1 programmed exercises (3/3/3 this week):"

                    • Hammer Strength chest press 3x120 3x140 4x155 - first set last rest/pause 10/5/2
                    • Hammer Strength rows 3x155 3x180 12x200 - first set last rest/pause 20/8/8
                    • Trap bar dead lift 3x245 3x280 3x315 + (Big but Boring) 10x135 10x145 3x10x155

                            • Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 4, week 2 (5/3/1), Workout A

                              Still on track. I did 'big and boring" on both squats and press. I felt good that I was able to do 3 reps on the squats, but felt a little guilty for not going all the way down on that last set -- below parallel, but but not all the way down:-(

                              I really nailed the pull-downs, so will need in increase my set-point by about 10 pounds next cycle.

                              The volume is really starting to pick up -- especially for legs with with 8 working sets of squats and 6 working sets of various leg machines. I'm seriously considering splitting into 3 routines staggered across a week and a half -- and then skipping the standard, 4th de-load week. That would give me shorter workouts and more recovery time.
