    Beltless ATG highbar: 435 for 6x3

    Expected to be a bit tired today (was under the weather yesterday) but the first two sets were my fastest ever triples around this weight by far. Hopefully this keeps up for 6x4 in a couple days. Jury's out on 6x5 and 6x6.

    Tomorrow is slingshot bench + pull ups. Taking a bit of a break from grip work and curls while adjusting to this routine shift and some life stuff.

    Slingshot bench: 365x3, 385x3, 405x1,2
    Pull ups: 135 for 3x2

    385x3 is getting faster and faster but somehow I always choke 405. I should stop being stubborn and just pick away 390, 395, 400 etc.

    The 405x2 wasn't bad though.

    Wow, the 6x4 was tough but that's good squatting for me. If I recover well I think I have a shot at 6x5 which is crazy. I'm running RSR +15lbs above my max and by all accounts I should not survive (even this far: the 'correct' working weight would be 415) but I actually have a glimmer of a chance. Even getting this far has for sure made me stronger.

    Incredibly fatigued. My first rep of this left was slower than my last rep of 6x4. The final one was the slowest ever at 435. Getting ground to bits here. Extending rest a bit before 6x5.

    Bench: 365x1, 385x0 -- oh man, I barely missed this

    This one hurts! If I was like 1lbs stronger today I would've locked it out. I've got this soon, and hopefully more. Based on my warm up speeds today wasn't even my strongest day. Going to keep working singles for a little while.

    Beltless ATG highbar: 435 for 6x5

    Wow! I can't believe I made the 6x5. This is crazy. I think I even have a shot at the 6x6, and then who knows. Can't believe I made this far even with the added rest days.

    Bench: 385x1

    Yeeeeea! Surprisingly smooth. Might have 390-395 in me soon, but I'm tempted to take my gains and switch back to some kind of patient building routine. I'm after 405 anyway.

    Beltless ATG highbar: 435 for 6x2

    Fatigue is again extremely high. I barely finished the 6x2. Hard to imagine I just did 6x5 and even harder to imagine I'll do 6x6 next, but somehow it's panned out so far.

    Beltless highbar squat: 435 for 6x6

    Holy ****! This is a huge session. I can't believe I hit it. This is tentative but this implies a 545-575 max for beltless high bar, and my belted low bar is always 100lbs+ higher, so I can really start aiming for a 300kg-7 plate-700lbs squat after I hit my front squat goal.

    OK I hit a pretty big wall and I've been spinning my wheels since then. A bit under the weather since New Years too. Getting a bit more steam again recently though. Hopefully I'll turn things around now.

    12/28
    Overhead press: 190 for 4x5 + 1x7
    Seal row: 275 for 3x5

    12/30
    Beltless ATG highbar: 435 for 6x2 -- barely survived this, grinding even my first rep of the first set

    01/01
    Illegally wide paused Larsen bench: 310 for 4x4

    01/02
    Pull ups from ball grips hanging on ropes: 45x5,8,10

    01/03
    Slingshot bench: 365x3, 380x3, 395x2,1

    01/04
    Beltless ATG highbar: 465x2 -- completely burned out, stopped the set early

    01/07
    Beltless ATG highbar: 405x1 -- bailed on warm up, grinding

    01/08
    Illegally wide paused Larsen bench: 315 for 4x4
    Seal row: 275 for 3x5

    01/09
    Beltless ATG highbar: 405x1 -- bailed on warm up, grinding

    01/12
    Overhead press: 195 for 5x5
    Pull ups from ball grips hanging on ropes: 45x7
    Pull ups: BWx20

    01/17
    Beltless ATG highbar: 465x4

    Finally had a decent warm up so I added some weight. Wanted to hit 465x5 but kinda flagged near the end. Not sure how far along the recovery I am right now, still felt some low back fatigue but definitely not a bad day anyway.

    Plan is something like:
    18th: larsen bench
    19th: seal row
    20th: more squatting, not sure my plan yet

    Front squat: 315x1 -- quad started to hurt like post-charlie horse pain, so I called it here...
    Seal row: 275 for 3x5

    I also did a bunch of body weight squats for blood flow. Something around 5x20.

    Paused front squat: 405x1, 415x1

    Tough front squats today. Leg strength was on point but I was blacking out even on warm ups. 405 took three tries before I could keep it together. Very arguably stupid to keep going but, anyway, I did.

    415 once I made it was actually fast. Loaded up 425 but I had to keep reracking it and after like 10-15 minutes I called the session.

    First rep of 485x2 should've been fast enough for a triple, but the second slowed down a bunch. Going to aim for 485x3 in the near future.

    But either way, high bar starting to get back in the groove, but for some reason I can't front squat anymore. I always start fading out unracking 50%+ weights. Weird. First time its been this bad, did I slip on some basic form idea? Hard to believe but something's up.

    Squat is going great! For some reason my bench is not!

    Flying out on Monday... before then I'll squat a bunch, and I'd like to do... bench, pull ups, rows, maybe one more slingshot session.

    I'll be off at least two weeks for mandatory quarantine etc. I might try to do pistols and push ups and stuff (lol) just to keep something going. Might take my grippers or something too.

    This session will tire me out a bunch, might be my last squats before I fly tbh.

    I think the plan now is one more heavy bench session and one more row session, either Saturday or Sunday depending how busy I end up.

    03/04 - First workout abroad (weights switched to kg)
    Beltless ATG highbar: 170x5, 180x5
    Bench: 110x10,10, 115x4 (tried to super-set pull ups before the last set and it killed me)
    Pull ups: BWx10,10,10

    So I flew around 40 hours and quarantined two weeks and walked 2km to the gym, but all in all a good first session. Felt strong. The 180x5 was pretty low RPE even, just felt awkward. Not used to squatting in front of a mirror even. I'll probably aim to work around 2-3x squats/week and go from there.

    Dumbbell bench: 40x12,12,8
    Beltless ATG highbar: 190x3, 195x3, 200x2
    Pull ups: BWx12,6,10

    They only have 40kg dumbbells which I thought was too low but I actually started gassing pretty hard. I might do more DB bench just because I can't do them at home and it's kinda "fun" and my bench working sets are down like 40lbs from travelling anyway.

    Squat is doing decently. I'm sure I'd hit 200x3 but I'm not recovering well and I don't want to risk failure in this pretty casual/quiet gym.

    I guess my goal over the next 2-3 months is 220x3 high bar and 100x3 OHP. No idea what my weight is lately but it's definitely down.
