    Beltless ATG highbar: 385x3, 405x3, 425x3
    - p1RM/e1RM: 529.167/467.500
    Sledgehammer deadlift: (2H+1F)x5,4,3

    Squat strength feels good but my knee is in like a steady state. Definitely not worse but not much better. I want to start semi-peaking front squat since I hit a 500+ prediction, but not until I feel totally healthy.

    Gotta take a break from squatting, my knee sucks. Just when I fixed my hip... I really think I want to hit that 500 front squat and take a long break from heavy squatting and focus on my health. I'm falling apart.

    12/08
    OHP: 205x1, 225x1, 235x1, 245x0, 240x1
    Standing ez bar tris extensions: 105x12, 115x12,12
    1-arm cable flyes: 80x10,10,10
    EZ bar seal row: 235x5,5,6

    Also trying IT rolling and 2min single leg stands for my knee...

    Tomorrow I'll do grip stuff and more knee rehab.

    12/10
    Paused bench: 315x1, 355x1, 375x1
    Low bar squat: 405x1, 455x1, 495x1, 525x3
    Pinch block DL and hold: 50.5x11s,12s,12s (peak: 43s, this time: 35s)
    Sledgehammer deadlift: (2H+1F)x4,3,2
    Dumbbell pronation: DBx5,5,8

    **** yes!!!!!!!!!! First bench 1RM PR in over four years. And I took my touch-and-go PR up 10lbs. Finally. Feels so good, I'm absolutely elated.

    This bar speed tracking algorithm I drew up is working wonders for me, especially for pressing.

    First low bar in exactly a year. 525x3 isn't a bad start, but I'd like to hit 525x8 in the near future. I can usually grab a couple more reps each session as I readapt.

    Tomorrow should be pull ups and more grip stuff.

    Knee still sucks. And super sore from the low bar squats. Dying to squat but not going to be doing any in the very near future.

    I wanna do some kind of leg work every four days or so, so if I'm still a mess around Monday/Tuesday, I'll try some light split squats or box squats or something.

    What I really want is to get some serious front squat going...

    12/12
    Paused bench: 275x5, 295x5, 305x5
    - p1RM/e1RM: 369.167/355.833
    Pull ups: BWx15,13,15
    Wrist wrench DL and hold: 85x6s,3s,4s (peak time: 32s, this time: 13s)
    90deg biceps isometric hold: 57.5x15s,6s,7s (peak time: 41s, this time: 28s)
    Grippers: #2.5x5,5,7

    I think pull ups are killing my grip work. Kinda obvious, but anyway... really weak work today. Especially my staying power across sets. I'm surprised my wrist wrench was hit harder than my biceps though. Maybe I'm just looking for excuses, haha.

    Grippers were decent though.

    12/14
    OHP: 225x1, 245x1, 250x0 -- oh man, that 250 was so, so close. Big grind, locked out my right elbow, and just shy on my left elbow but couldn't see it out today... soon!
    Standing ez bar tris extensions: 125x10,10,12
    1-arm cable flyes: 80x10,10,10

    Definitely hitting 250 before the year is out. Probably would've made it today if I didn't hit the +5lbs PR with 245 before, or if I slept more or didn't skip breakfast. Anyway, nothing to it but to do it.

    Tomorrow I'd like to do some kind of squat and rows.

    12/15
    Front squat: 365x1, 385x1, 405x1, 415x1, 405x1, 425x1
    - p1RM/e1RM: 437.500/439.167

    Front squats felt really weak today. My predicted max from today's work is 20lbs below the single I actually hit a week ago, and even _that_ single was disappointing. Damn.

    I hope this is just a rough patch and my front squat turn around soon. I don't really know why my numbers have been so low.

    Too bummed to do rows, bumped to tomorrow.

    Lowbar squat: 495x1, 535x1
    EZ bar seal row: 240x4,3,3

    Squats feel really terrible lately. Maybe I should take some time off? I'm tilting hard. I looked at my notes and my e1RMs have been dropping across the board almost all of December.

    Pull ups w/ globes on ropes: 45x10,10,10

    I'll probably try low bar on Sat/Sun and OHP and biceps on Sun. Otherwise taking things a bit easier. This is like a deload-lite. Cutting assistance and frequency a bit but staying the course.

    Beltless paused lowbar to high box: 525x5
    Lowbar squat: 525x5

    Sigh, what a ****ty situation. Low bar bothers my hip and high bar bothers my knee. I have to reevaluate. Though I noticed the high box bothers my hip more than a normal low bar squat... the second set was easier than the first.

    I think switching to higher rep bench is killing my OHP singles. Kind of dumb programming.

    But anyway, I decided to stop pushing for 250 before year end. Doesn't really matter. Hitting 245 was nice. I'm gonna keep training and try to get 265-275 or something cool in 2021 instead.

    My knee is healing OK, hip seems decent. I'll slowly start adding back some squats (maybe 225 for 3x5 front squats tomorrow, something like that to get my knee moving again).

    Anyway, gonna kinda wash out everything this year and reevaluate a full plan. Lately I feel all over the place and I need to refocus. Gonna actually sit down tonight and draft out a serious plan that factors in my poor lower body health and some of my goals... like I want to start deadlifting again in 2021.

    Paused bench: 275x6, 295x6, 305x6
    - p1RM/e1RM: 373.333/366.000
    Front squat: 315x3, 335x3, 355x3, 375x1, 385x1, 395x1, 405x1
    - p1RM/e1RM: 488.333/405.000

    Currently limiting my bar speed on front squats to 0.50m/s which is kind of conservative (before it was 0.40m/s). Today was decent, my closest PR is 0.53m/s at 405. Going to try to push my 0.50-max as much as possible to give myself time to adjust to the workload, then I can start lowering the minimum speed and going for some big singles.

    Sledgehammer deadlift: (2H+1F)x4,3,2 -- switching measurement from fingers to cm, and moving it in so it's a little bit easier, I want longer sets. 18.5cm for now.

    Still sore and tired from the low bar PR set, but I wanted to get some front squatting in. Still limiting to 0.5m/s, last set was 0.46m/s so I called it there. Going to start aiming for every other day frequency or so, for now, potentially increasing to every day after a couple of weeks.

    Huge pinch block PR, from 57.5lbs up to 67.5lbs.

    Sumo deadlift trial: 165x5, 245x3, 335x1, 425x1, 515x1, 605x1, 660x0

    First sumo in ages (last in journal is June 2019). Got 660 up to the knees but my hips cramped up and I couldn't lock it out. Damn! Would've been a nice unplanned PR.

    Part of me is tempted to set my routine up to hit the single soon, since I'll get stronger as I readd sumo back in, but I know it's not a good idea. I'll shelf a PR for a few months or whatever.

    Got my Rogue Crash Cushions and wanted to try them out! I'm still super sore and tired from yesterday's pulling but still managed to squeeze out a heavy single. Love these pads so far but not sure how long they'll last with this kind of weight. Hopefully it's no problem!

    Paused tempo front squat to pads: 135x3, 225x3, 275x3, 295x3, 315x3,3,3,3,3

    OK! Seems like if I cut depth with the pads just a little bit (still below parallel but not ATG) then my knee is happy. Let's see how I feel tomorrow to make sure. Pretty solid workload so if it's no-go I'm sure I'll feel it... if it's good, we're good!

    Next session bench + grip, session after I'll do block pulls + seal rows or something like that.

    Paused tempo front squat to pads: 320x3,3,3,3, 335x5

    I meant to do 325 for 5x3, but I misloaded. Whoops. Did a bunch extra on the last set after I noticed for good measure, maybe balance it out a bit (lol).

    If I did 325 I would've done 335 next time? Maybe I still will? The 335x5 wasn't all that bad.
