    Bench press, decline BB press, crouched cable pulldowns, low pulley cable curls (stacks).

    After laying off due to a lumbar tweak, I went off the reservation this afternoon and DL'd for the first time in 9 weeks.

    10x135, 7x225, 5x275, 3x320, 15x225.

    Coach doesn't know, yet, but we were planning to begin pulling again when I return home from vacation next week anyway. I just started a little early. Is that so wrong ? Anyway, the sets went easy, my spine is asymptomatic, and I'm dead hanging every hour on the hour from a tree branch in mom's backyard just to make sure.

    Another great workout -- exceeded the last set of 3/3/3 with 6 reps for machine chest press, 10 for machine rows, and 6 for trap bar dead lift. Also, getting a nice burn going on the last 5-6 reps of many of the assistant exercises -- with OldSchool's eccentric-focused training.

    Squats:

    142.5 kg (313.5lb) x 3 x 5

    Had to cut these short for time (intended 5x5 across). Worked out well because I didn't want to risk the back.

    Press:

    55 kg (121 lb) x 5 x 5


    Deadlifts:

    170 kg (374 lb) x 5
    220 kg (484 lb) x 1
    240 kg x 0

    I felt really good on my ramp up sets. I was initially going to set up for 160 kg as a fiver, then figured, fuck it, I feel good and they've got lotsa new 25 kg bumpers. Be a shame not to use them. Then I felt good at the end of the fiver and thought, why not see if I've still got it. Pulled a single 10 kg away from my old PR after less than a month back in the gym and held lockout for a good few seconds. Happy.

    Then I thought I'd use the extra ten minutes the gym was open for to just go mental and try to crack my old PR. Obviously, it didn't work. Made 2 attempts at the 240, barely breaking it off the floor the second time. Might be an idea to start programming some defecit deadlifts whenever my progression on fivers stalls.

    Between sets:

    Fucked around with some chin ups, pull ups and some lower back extensions. Nothing in any great sequence, just a way of killing down time between presses.

    Light squat & standing calf raises. This evening, a pleasant 4 mile walk/run over hilly terrain. Now, 2 days off. Sunny, warm and clear in the San Gabriel Valley.

    BBS big 5. In the process of switching gyms, so I need to re-find where I need to be on all the machine settings with these new (better) machines. Expect to have everything dialed in in the next week or two.

    Finally got our memberships to wife's new schools gym! First time lifting weights in a little over a month so I started kind of light and hoping to work back up quickly.

    Squats: 185 x 5 , 185 x 5 , 155 x 5
    (First set felt good, second was leaning too far forward so I lowered weight. I am going to work back up squatting 3x a week to focus on form, still hitting depth but its gotten a bit sloppy)
    Bench: 115 x 5 , 115 x 5 , 115 x 5
    (These felt really good)
    Pullups: BW x 10 , BW x 8 , BW x 5
    Barbell Curls: 50 x 5 , 50 x 5 , 50 x 5

    Today was one of those days I was so gassed that not only did I hear Jesus, he asked to work in on my last set of Power Cleans. I did some silly accessory shit yesterday, mostly some gunz work, pull ups, dips and light deadlifts plus a quick little interval session on a rowing machine. Kind of went overboard with it. As a result, today was effin brutal on me.

    Squats

    150 kg (330 lb) x 5 x 5

    Bench

    70 kg (154 lb) x 5 x 5

    Power Cleans

    70 kg (154 lb) x 3 x 5

    My CNS was shot by the end of this. Gassed is not strong enough a word. I'm lying down with a very contented smile after my steak and shower, though

    What are you adding to your squats, like 25 pounds per workout? I'm going to enjoy the short time left where I've got a couple more pounds on the bar than you do.

    I wish. Well, I did make some 10 kg jumps on my squats earlier on (but to be fair, first session back I struggled with 100 kg, so those jumps were bound to happen once my CNS reacclimatized) and added 5 kgs to the power clean and bench this session.

    Right now it's going to be 2.5 kg increments per workout and I'll add in a light front squat day on Wednesday. If nothing else, I need to slow myself down so my spinal erectors and CNS can catch up to my legs.
