    Squat:
    2x5x45
    1x5x100
    1x4x160
    1x3x210
    3x5x250

    Squats heavy, but better than expected. Felt like I had a lot of energy today and they did not zonk me out as much as last workout. Decent form and depth.

    Bench:
    2x5x45
    1x5x95
    1x3x120
    3x5x150

    Bench was really heavy. Barely squeaked out a 5/5/5.

    Chin-ups (assisted):
    1x6x(BW-34)
    1x5x(BW-34)
    1x3x(BW-34)

    Chins tough.

    Thanks. I guess the extra energy came from a combination of decent sleep and too much coffee.

    Missed Wednesday's workout due to work issues, not enough sleep, and other excuses. Anyways.

    4/27/2012, 12:20pm

    Squat:
    2x5x45
    1x5x135
    1x3x175
    1x2x215
    3x5x255

    Squats really heavy. Bar speed really slow. I feel like I am going to stall soon.

    Standing Press:
    2x5x45
    1x4x65
    3x5x87.5

    Presses alright. All racks were taken so I had power-clean the weight for each set. Yay for teh microplates.

    Pull-ups (assisted):
    1x9x(BW-40)
    1x5x(BW-40)
    1x3x(BW-40)

    Pull-ups alright.

    Barbell curls:
    1x9x40
    1x9x40
    1x8x40

    For the guns, of course.

    Not sure why I always start at 12:20pm.

    Squat:
    2x5x45
    1x5x135
    1x4x175
    1x3x220
    3x5x260

    Squats frickin' heavy. Heavy. Form and depth was alright, but the last 2-3 reps on the last set were almost impossible. Lower back starting to get hit hard on squats.

    Bench:
    2x5x45
    1x5x95
    1x3x120
    1x4x155
    1x3x155
    1x3x155

    Meh. Bench was heavy. Stalled big time.

    Chin-ups (assisted):
    1x8x(BW-34)
    1x5x(BW-34)
    1x4x(BW-34)

    Chins still tough, but at least a few more reps than last time.

    Weight was like 199lbs right after workout, but it fluctuates during the day, due to water/food/etc, so I'm never sure if I'm looking at my heaviest or lightest weight for the day.

    Sometimes, since it is during work time. However, I just recently joined a gym near where I live, so I'm hoping to workout there when I am not at work.

    Correction: 8/20/2012's workout involved chins, not pull-ups.

    8/24/2012, 9:15 pm

    The gym I usually go to is a few minutes away from work, so I usually workout during lunchtime. I used to live a few minutes away from work as well, but I recently moved 30 miles farther from work (don't ask) so going to this gym is not as feasible when I am not at work. I joined a gym close to my new place of residence and just visited it for the first time.

    Squat:
    2x5x45
    1x5x95
    1x5x135
    1x4x175
    3x5x215

    Luckily, the new gym has almost the same amount of squat racks as the old gym. I started doing squats in a rack that had no mirror in front of it. I'm not used to doing squats without a mirror, so the warm-up sets felt very weird. I ultimately switched to another rack with a mirror in front of it for the work sets. Squats were good.

    Also, the Olympic barbells felt slightly thinner than the ones at the other gym, although it just could have been my imagination.

    Bench Press:
    2x5x45
    1x5x85
    1x4x110
    3x5x135

    Bench alright.

    Pull-ups (assisted):
    1x7x(BW-135)
    1x6x(BW-135)
    1x5x(BW-135)

    The assisted pull-up machine in the new gym is different from the gym I usually go to. It has you kneel on a platform, as opposed to standing on a lever, and the assistance weight goes much higher, up to 300lbs. The resistance on the assistance weight felt very different, sliding through a track and not very reactive of your body weight as opposed to standing on a lever. I ultimately had to use a higher assistance weight. Plus, I was doing almost the same reps per set. I prefer the assistance machine from the old gym, but I'll make do with whatever progress I can get from this machine.

    Yeah, in my experience, your field of view greatly effects an excercise like squat. It has always seemed to me like it is a balance thing. So, as you have possibly found, where you look and what you look at will likely be quite different when there is a mirror in front as opposed to when there is not. With the former, depending on where you look, you will not only feel the movement but see the movement as well. Without the mirror, the feeling of the movement is much more accentuated (you are more conscious of it, esp if you are used to seeing it too in the mirror). Try squatting with your eyes closed (with a warmup weight), and you may 'see' what Im getting at.

    Myself, I dont have a mirror in my garage, but Ive experienced something similiar. For example, if I do my front squats with a hoodie on, with the hood up, my peripheral vision is impaired, and I no longer see the ends of the bbell as I normally would. This really fcks my balance up, it feels weird like you said; I cant go too heavy with the weight. It shows to me that much of our balance, movement and co-ordination is visual based, even when we remain pretty much in the one spot.

    Also, the Olympic barbells felt slightly thinner than the ones at the other gym, although it just could have been my imagination.
    Maybe your hands have gotten excessively bigger.

    How come your squat dropped from 260?

    Agreed. I've always read it's better to squat without a mirror, but I was never able not to (gym is full of mirrors). As a result, I made a habit of using the mirror to ensure hip drive, depth, etc is in order. Will be interesting squatting in the mirror-less rack.

    The barbells are 20KG York bars apparently, but they seem slightly thinner. Not a big deal I guess, although I was initially afraid I was lifting with a lighter barbell.

    As for squats, I was approaching 260-265 and the weight was getting really heavy - I thought a stall was imminent. That being said, my diet/sleep/amountofalcoholcompsumption was probably not ideal. Then, I started slacking off and skipping weeks at a time. I should get back to 260 within a month, provided I'm actually working out on a consistent basis.

    Cardio (lol)

    Treadmill:
    Speed 3.0 (Walking), 5 minutes
    Speed 5.0 (Jogging I guess), 20 minutes
    Speed 2.5 (Walking cool down), 5 minutes

    Found out my iPod is broken. Ugh. Anyways, first time I did cardio in years. It was alright.

    Vidcam, obviously, if you can.

    As for squats, I was approaching 260-265 and the weight was getting really heavy - I thought a stall was imminent. That being said, my diet/sleep/amountofalcoholcompsumption was probably not ideal. Then, I started slacking off and skipping weeks at a time. I should get back to 260 within a month, provided I'm actually working out on a consistent basis.
    Are you running some form of SS here?
