    You'll hit those presses next time.

    Once again, thumbs up on your pulling. You've got some serious strength there, particularly compared to your other lifts.
    In 2006 I was a Starting Strength success story, gaining 30 pounds of muscle and hitting 400/300/500 over seven months. Then excuses happened and my interests shifted. I made a pathetically short-lived attempt at a comeback eight months later, but that didn't last. That was nearly six years ago. I'm now 27 and am back for another shot at things. Follow my log and watch me (hopefully) get hella strong again!

    Most impressive deads. I didn't pull 365 until a few weeks ago, even though my Squats have been 300+ for about 6-7 months, so whatever you're doing, keep doing it because it's obviously working.

    Thanks for the motivation you guys! My deads are definitely a strong point for me, it's gotta be my 6'2" wingspan at 5'9"

    It feels great getting back to the numbers I was at before when I could still drop my deads between reps. I'll be ecstatic when I can hit 405 for 5 double overhand, just 40 more pounds to go!


    Had a pretty damn good session today, hit everything except for my last set of curls but who really cares about that. I saw some high schoolers messing around with deads today on a weird half hex bar with 275 loaded on it. They kept blabbing about needing straps and gloves to lift it. I had to ask one of them for a spot on my heaviest set of bench and I didn't even bother asking him to not touch the bar. I was already expecting it. Oddly enough he surprised me with a perfect lift off and he kept his hands off the bar as I grinded through my last rep. I guess you never know what to expect out of people.

    Bodyweight 179lbs

    Low bar squat

    175x5
    210x5
    240x5 w/ belt (I got to try out an inzer forever belt today. Too stiff imo and it dug into my hips and ribs. It didn't feel like it did anything except give me some nice bruises.)

    Bodyweight: 170lbs

    Low bar squat
    140x5
    180x5
    220x5/5

    Press
    85x5
    100x5
    120x5
    135x4 failed halfway up at about head level on my 5th rep.

    Deadlift
    235x5
    280x5
    330x5
    375x4
    My last set was a complete f up on my part. I failed on the fifth rep about two inches off the ground, I almost never fail if the bar leaves the ground. I wasn't mentally ready to grind out a rep at the end of the set.

    Also, I used a double overhand grip for the first three reps. On the third one my grip started to give out and it was really slow. Waste of energy that would've probably made me not miss rep 5.

    Next time I'm using hook grip all the way through.

    I got annoyed at my presses and tried to get 135 again.
    Press
    135x0
    115x1
    125x1
    135x4 (failed at lockout, at least I got a little further than my first attempt earlier in the session)

    That's three times I've missed 135, time reset back a few weeks on this.

    I messed around with a wider grip to see if it would be easier on my elbows. It messed up my last set and was rougher on my shoulders so I'm going to stick it out with my regular grip.

    low bar squat
    150x5
    185x5
    220x5/5

    Press
    These are just regressing so I'm resetting back a few weeks and switching to pausing at the bottom. Pausing at the top makes the first rep really tough with the next few being a bit easier which just feels odd.
    85x2
    100x1
    120x1
    135x3

    115x5

    Deadlift
    235x5
    280x5
    330x5
    375x4 ugh... failed a few inches off the ground again. I think my hips are too high from the start which makes a few inches off the ground a weak point. Usually getting it off the floor is the hardest part but today and last week when I failed getting it off the floor was fine then I just get stuck. Feels like I'm out of position instead of lacking the strength.

    Chinups +17.5lbs

    Another bleh session today. Been feeling like I'm going to get sick past few days which could be the cause.

    Bodyweight 180lbs

    Low bar squat
    150x5
    185x5
    220x5
    add belt
    260x5
    295x3 I tried a friends belt on this set and I put it on way too tight which I found out halfway through this set. Still got the triple but it was harder than it should've been thanks to that
    220x8 loosened the belt up a notch and this felt much tighter

    Bench
    105x5
    130x5
    160x5
    185x5 easier than last week
    210x2 -_- form felt solid, this was just fn heavy from the start I think its time to go back to 195 and actually get the set of five once and for all.
    160x8

    Power Clean
    90x5
    110x5
    135x5
    160x5
    185x2 just gonna repeat this week, not really upset about this since I skipped a week on my spreadsheet.

    Interesting about your belt experiences recently. I find that the tighter the belt gets the more I get out of it. Also, I had bruising from the Inzer Forever the first day that I used it but not afterwards. Now it's the best thing on the planet. I rolled and unrolled it a bunch to help break it in and I wear it during most of my lifts.

    Have you thought about taking a longer break from the gym to let your body recover, maybe three days or so? It sounds like you might benefit from it.
    In 2006 I was a Starting Strength success story, gaining 30 pounds of muscle and hitting 400/300/500 over seven months. Then excuses happened and my interests shifted. I made a pathetically short-lived attempt at a comeback eight months later, but that didn't last. That was nearly six years ago. I'm now 27 and am back for another shot at things. Follow my log and watch me (hopefully) get hella strong again!

    I just happened to tighten it to the point where flexing my abs was uncomfortable so my abs weren't fully braced.

    I'm too stubborn to stay out of the gym but I should probably take a light week soon. Your log makes taking a shot at SS for squats really tempting. I never tried it for low bar and your results are ridiculous!

    Think long term! You can't keep going full speed and ignoring potential problems. Work smarter, not harder. Definitely don't fight through pain!

    Dialing back the intensity a bit on everything except for deads. Doing my presses Starting strength style for now, been a bit discouraged with ramping sets. I need to change something up for a little bit. Keeping squats and deadlifts on madcows until deads stall. We'll see what to do from there.

    Bodyweight 180lbs

    Squats
    Back to high bar squats for now until I hit a hard stall.
    120x5
    155x5
    185x5
    215x5
    245x5

    Pause bench
    155 3x5

    Chinups
    5x5

    Important and obvious advice that needs to be respected.
    In 2006 I was a Starting Strength success story, gaining 30 pounds of muscle and hitting 400/300/500 over seven months. Then excuses happened and my interests shifted. I made a pathetically short-lived attempt at a comeback eight months later, but that didn't last. That was nearly six years ago. I'm now 27 and am back for another shot at things. Follow my log and watch me (hopefully) get hella strong again!

    Even though I haven't taken extra rest days in a while lowering the intensity helped me a lot mentally last session. It's really draining missing lifts week after week. Feels great to make all of my reps easily even if its not at a challenging weight.

    on a side note I'll probably have to take some extra rest days once overtime kicks in in the next few weeks. (Doing tax work right now)

    It definitely wouldn't hurt to take extra rest days. Go back to the old intensity and then take 2 days off instead of just 1. Definitely wouldn't be too bad, especially since you're going to be putting in some long hours crunching numbers for us poverty stricken Americans who can't do our own damn taxes.

    Thanks! I gotta say that I prefer paused bench over tng. I find it easier to stay tight and retain a consistent bar path.

    I agree and disagree. You do stay much tighter on paused, so for volume training and light day I do paused (if possible, volume bench is pretty hefty for me since I'm weak!) but on my intensity days I like to do tng just so I can get it up and get it over with.

    I haven't gone heavy with paused yet so I guess I'll see how I like it in the coming weeks.

    Yesterdays session got a bit off track on squats. No big deal though, just going to continue to 260 on Sunday.

    Bodyweight: 181lbs

    Squats
    I had a hard time getting warmed up, lots of knee/hip/ankle pain so I just did lots of singles up to 275. A nice break from the squatting volume for me.

    Press
    105 3x5

    Power Clean
    165 5x3

    Way to change it up around your needs. Smart thinking.

    Yeah there was no way I was going to get through the squatting that day. Felt great to just do some singles on squats and call it a day. I think my hips are just beat up from low bar squats a while back.

    Squats went just fine today. Not doing the heavy triple session on Thursday didn't mess anything up.

    I started using my new inzer 10mm forever lever belt today. Kept digging into my ribs on the first two sets I used it. Found a good position for it on my last set. Feels good so far, can't wait for it to break in.

    Bodyweight 181lbs

    Squat
    130x5
    160x5
    Add belt
    195x5
    230x5
    260x5 slooooow last rep but my form felt solid. None of my reps turned into a good morning. No excessive rest between reps either.

    Pause Bench
    45x5
    95x3
    135x1
    155x1
    170x5
    170x6 (did the first rep touch n go by accident, last five were paused)
    170x5

    Weighted Chinups
    10lbs 5x5

    Close grip pause bench
    135x8

    Started working overtime today for tax season so I'm sure my sessions are going to be iffy for the next 3 weeks.

    My bodyweights been hovering right around 181 so I think I need to up my calories a bit.

    I tried using my inzer belt on deads and it was just annoying. Kept digging into my abs. I'll have to mess around with the tightness and position of it until I can find a good spot for it on deads.


    Bodyweight: 181lbs

    Skipped the light squats today since I'm a bit pressed for time.

    Deadlift

    245x5
    285x5
    340x5 I knew this session wasn't going to end well when I had to switch to a hook grip to finish out the set
    390x2 Fn hard, form stayed pretty solid though.

    Press
    45x5
    85x3
    110 3x5 no bar speed slowdown yet.
