    Hey those squats and OHP are getting up there, awesome!

    You're foam rolling, right? Tight muscles mean weird hip pain sometimes, I get my SI joint going if I don't pay close attention.
    Don't listen to me, I'm in terrible shape.

    Thanks. Thankfully I'm still progressing on them.

    I have not been foam rolling, and that is definitely something I have been considering. I have been looking around for a roller and just need to pick one and pull the trigger. So you use a roller then and it is pretty helpful for you?

    I really like the fat bar. I find that it is really helping to work my forearms and grip. Also, because I have to focus more on gripping the bar and bar movement, I think it is really helping me to zero in my form on my OHP. Because of this my "regular" bar OHP is improving as well. Once I switch over to 5/3/1 I plan on doing fat bar close grip bench press and maybe adding fat bar curls back in to my workouts as well.

    Foam roller helps tons. When you work things out in your core and legs you hit different muscles differently, so they can get in a state where some are tighter than others so they're different lengths. Completely causes you to get out of whack.

    Well that's good to know. I just pulled the trigger and ordered one. I'm looking forward to getting to work with it.

    If you're feeling tight check out raynerd and fittofat's logs (if you can understand wtf they're talking about) They both seem to have good things in there about stretching, mobility and other technical stuff well above my vocabulary

    Excellent. Thanks for the recommendation...I'll check them out. Would rep you for that, but I'm on spread.

    This morning I completed Workout B (9_3_B) as follows:

    Hypers 20-0, 20-0
    Front Squats 5-95, 5-135, 5-165, 5-165, 5-165
    Incline BP 5-135, 5-165, 5-190, 5-190, 5-190
    DL 5-165, 5-205, 5-245
    Neutral Grip Chins 5-10, 5-15, 5-20, 5-20, 5-20
    MP 5-95, 5-115, 5-135, 5-135, 5-135* This one felt like I was at my limit and couldn't do one more rep if I wanted to.
    Decline Situps 25-0, 25-0

    Good workout. My left hip is still a little sore, but feeling much better. I ordered a foam roller and once it gets here that should help improve my flexibility.

    The MP are feeling really tough. I might stay at the same weight next week until the reps start to feel a little more comfortable before increasing the weight at all.

    Thanks guys. By the 3rd set I was definitely feeling them...and for my last rep I had to use a little leg assistance to get the rep up, which I didn't like to do. I think another week at this weight is in store, and if I'm feeling particularly strong on the last set maybe I'll try to squeeze out an extra rep (or two or three).

    SLDL 5-155, 5-195, 5-240
    Chins 5-10, 5-15, 5-25, 5-25, 5-25
    Rows 5-190, 5-190, 5-190
    Fat Bar MP 5-96, 5-118, 5-134, 5-134, 5-134
    Leg Raises 25-0, 25-0

    Pretty good workout. I felt a little sluggish this morning. My legs felt a little dead and my shoulders were sore for some reason. Once I got going though, the weights seemed to go up well.

    I have increased my warm up sets on Squats and Bench Press from 2 to 3 since the weight has been going up. This allows me to make a smoother transition into my work sets. I'm thinking about adding an extra warm up set to Stiff Leg DL and DL as well to help the transition there as well.

    I'm impressed with that as well! They really bother me with a bar for some reason so I generally stick to db's. Great work man!!!!

    Those squats are getting heavy over here, as well as everything else. Lots of weight moved today.
    Don't listen to me, I'm in terrible shape.

    I started that today on squats and it really seems to have helped. Time will tell.
    Just show up. Move some iron. Put in the time. Eat enough food.

    Hah! I'm starting to notice a pattern with my workouts...I feel sluggish every morning. Something about getting up at 5:30 am to workout just causes me to question my sanity on occasion.

    Yeah, it seems to have helped me too. I'm nervous that if I try to ramp up too quickly to my work sets, without the slower progression, bad things might happen to my joints or muscles.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    This morning I completed Workout B (10_2_B) as follows:

    Hypers 20-0, 20-0
    Front Squats 5-95, 5-135, 5-155, 5-175, 5-175, 5-175
    Incline BP 5-135, 5-155, 5-175, 5-195, 5-195, 5-195
    DL 5-165, 5-195, 5-225, 5-255
    V-Grip Chins 5-10, 5-15, 5-25, 5-25, 5-25
    MP 5-95, 5-120, 5-140, 5-140, 3-140
    Decline Situps 25-0, 25-0

    Overall good workout. Feel like I'm getting stronger in all of my lifts. On my last set of MP I only got 3 reps. I probably could've gotten 5 reps if I would have resorted to a push press, but I decided to try to control my form and only do the 3. I hate to miss the 5, but 140 is still more than the 135 I did last time, so that's some progress.

    Also, like I mentioned last time on some of my lifts I have added an extra warm up set to ease the transitions into my heavier work sets.

    Thanks. I'm disappointed I missed some reps on set 3 but now I have a goal to hit all my reps next time. I might also have to increase my rest time between sets. I have been resting for 45 seconds, but am thinking about bumping it up to 1 minute.

    Rut roh, he busted out with the 140.

    FWIW it took me 3 minutes rest in between to get 5x5 @135 a couple weeks ago. 45 seconds probably isn't near long enough.

    Yeah...and it looks like I'll be sticking with the 140 next week too.

    I'm thinking I will bump my rest up to 1:30 for my heavy sets. I've done 45 seconds for so long that I think anything longer than 1:30 will make me go stir crazy.
