    Poor sleep for weeks culminated in pretty bad lifting sessions. Deadlift was due to grip, which I took as a sign that I needed to take an extra few days to focus on recovery. Should be fine for next week.

    I stopped taking creatine around the same time I began my stim break (back on stims). Even though my progress has been somewhat poor as of late I chalk that up to poor sleep, not consistently eating enough protein, and not doing any active recovery (stretching, foam rolling, etc). Super goofed on bench. Sometimes when I'm going for my amrap set the weight feels pretty light and the bar speed is good so me being the idiot I am didn't realize I had 235 on the bar and not 265. Oh well.

    Going to be making a few changes going for the next cycle, and depending on how it goes I may implement for cycles 9 & 10. Sort of bastardizing the Strength Challenge Wendler has in the book. I will be doing push press instead of press for my main sets, and then a three second pause press for down sets/FSL/whatever. Pausing at the bottom for pause sets has worked for me in the past but only when I've been honest with myself and really paused for three or more seconds. Looking back at my journal I can see a lot of "pause" bench sets where I didn't really pause enough. Rather than doing three sets of FSL for press and bench I will do four sets. On press day after my main sets I will do rows rather than pull/chin ups, and vice versa on bench day. For my 3 and 531 weeks I will progress the main lifts as usual, but now I'll add some joker sets for singles. Regular amrap on 5 week with no joker sets. Have rarely used joker sets even on days when I've felt great so want to make it a point to incorporate them. After deadlift main sets I will do 4-5 sets of regular squats rather than front squats. Really like front squats but I want to dial in my squat form to help me break prs. Keeping weights the same for bench and press but progressing squat and deadlift by 10 as usual. At some point I'd like to try some of the challenges from the Beyond book but for now I'll see how I handle these changes.

    I've never done push press before so I'm trying to nail down the form. Practice practice. On deadlift day I'm keeping my feet a bit closer and bar a bit higher than I normally do for squat reps.

    Unlike previous weeks where five reps was all I could manage this week I still had energy left in the tank. I like the idea of getting in the work but not going for broke on fives week. Pull ups have been in a rut so I've decided rather than go for X sets of X reps just knock out as many as I can in 15 minutes and progress from there. Supersetting in push ups because I've wanted to program them in for a while but never got around to it. With push ups I plan on changing variations (feet elevated, weight vest, etc) when the mood strikes.

    I know I had at least two reps in the tank on squat day but the dude spotting me did a **** job. Backing the weight out I stepped on his foot and had to regain my balance with 445 on my back, then on the way up on the first rep he was like pulling on my armpits. I lift by myself so I'l usually just grab a random dude for the occasional spot, and I always tell them the same ****; don't spot unless I call for it. Idk what this dude was doing. Went for 470 and got buried right at parallel. I feel like if I had got the two reps on 445 I would have got 470. Oh well. Looking at my journal about a year ago I was getting 445X4 so regardless of the **** spot I should be getting these numbers easy. Was feeling like **** so I skipped deadlift day. Looking back to the previous week I don't think I was keeping track of time correctly during my pull up/push up superset because my pace and reps between the two weeks were pretty similar.

    Deload 6/24-6/29

    Got in two relatively light full body workouts. Been itching to go back to the Texas Method after this next cycle, but when I do I plan to utilize 1) the actual ****ing book this time since I've owned it for like two years but haven't really read it 2) a four day split rather than three, as I don't miss the 2 1/2 hour volume day workouts 3) modulating volume and intensity more intelligently to squeeze out gains rather than just resetting all the time. 531 is fine and I'm sure there are things I could tweak in the future to get the most out of it but I got the best strength gains of my life on Texas Method. So basically for my last 531 cycle I may run six weeks and test maxes on sixth week, or may just run three weeks and test maxes on third week. The latter probably isn't optimal for getting a true max but whatever.

    Squat 375x5
    Deadlift 475x5
    Snatch Grip Deficit Deadlift 225x3x3
    Abs

    Decided to cut 531 short because my heart wasn't into it. Read through the whole intermediate chapter in PP 3rd edition and have a general idea of what I plan on doing for the next 12-16 weeks. Started with fairly conservative 5x5 and 5RM weights as I feel that is what has tripped me up the most when running TM in the past. Looking at my journal there were times when I was utilizing a 5x5 weight that just crushed me and hindered progress on intensity days; for instance, 60 lbs is the biggest difference I used between volume squat and intensity squat. In about three-four weeks I plan on having a 70 lbs difference. Tentatively I plan on pushing fives for six to ten weeks, then switch to two sets of triples for three weeks, then three weeks of five sets of singles. If fives are progressing well after ten weeks then I'll just keep going. For upper volume I plan on adding direct arm work, something I haven't done in years. I looked like a ****ing moron trying to figure out what type of curl or tricep extension to do, it's been so long. Next week and going forward I'll switch out overhead extensions with skull crushers.

    Unlike the last time I ran TM bar speed for squat has been really good on both volume and intensity day. Once the bar speed significantly slows I'll stop making 10 lbs jumps on intensity day. As of right now I plan on switching out press and bench every week. My press was really good about a year ago so I'd rather not leave it as only an accessory lift by having volume bench every week. PPST mentions eventually having volume bench and volume press in the same week but I'm still quite a ways away from trying that. Also forgot to mention, as I did during 531 I will be adding in some face pulls, band pull aparts, light row variation, or other pulling exercise during my pressing movements. Now I do some light pulling in between sets on lower volume/intensity day as well.

    Increased the difference between volume squat from 60 to 65 lbs, bar speed on intensity day was still good. After next week I'll bump it up to 70 lbs and plan on keeping it there for a while. The quality of my press reps have definitely improved since running TM last time; before I used to start the first rep not with leg drive but by starting the bar just below my chin, bringing it down to my chest, and using momentum to complete my first rep. Subsequent reps would vary in how far down I brought the bar and I would reduce range of motion as reps got difficult. Now I start each set from my chest with no momentum at all, and each rep touches the top of my chest. I'm hoping that improving rep quality will help with progression, as press has burned out rather quickly for me in the past.

    Gym was closed for a couple days so I decided to just take a deload between 8/11-8/17. Intensity bench was a real grinder, which sucks because I know I'm capable of more, but on the plus side squat and deadlift both flew up. Next week's deadlift would tie a PR, so I'm excited for that. Added 5 minutes of jump rope on upper intensity day and I'd like to do between 5-10 minutes of jump rope conditioning on upper days.

    Oh geez y'all. On Saturday around 11 PM I came down with a bit of a headache, and since then I've had daily headaches, general fatigue, a fever, and night sweats. It was bad enough that I had to skip my lower intensity day. I've been putting off going to the doctor because I'm an idiot but after Advil and some generic NYQuil I had (it has the main ingredient in Tylenol) not having much of an effect I think I may have to. Would rather not miss any more workouts, especially at this point in my program.

    Decided to make the switch to two sets of triples on intensity day. For press I definitely needed to but I feel like I could have maybe eked out one more week of fives for squat and deadlift. Either way bar speed was good on all my lifts. As the press weight gets heavier I may have to go back to using a bit of momentum (not leg drive) to start my reps on intensity days. Right now I'm still starting my sets from a dead stop. I'm also going to start adding 5-10 minutes of assault/cardio bike at the end of lower body days. Over time I've been missing more and more of my dedicated conditioning days so I figure I'll just add some jump rope/bike/whatever at the end of my training sessions. Decided to cut out the snatch grip deadlift in favor of just back extensions.

    To help both bench and press I've decided on intensity day instead of getting in three sets of eight for accessory bench/press I'll do three sets of three with a heavier weight. Fits more with the goal of intensity day and should help my stagnating upper body numbers. After really smooth triples during the previous lower intensity day both deadlift and squat were real grinders. Might only be able to get one more week of triples before going to doubles.

    I'm taking classes part time while working full time, one of those classes being yoga on Monday and Wednesday. Monday is upper intensity day and I've been lifting after yoga just because I wanted to sleep in a bit and I didn't think beginner's yoga would interfere with my lifts. Although my pressing numbers have never really been good I think I have enough data to say 45-60 minutes of yoga before lifting probably isn't helping. I felt great but was only able to get two reps at 195, and after a 5-6 minute break couldn't get another rep. Conversely, on lower intensity day I felt like crap but was able to hit all my numbers. Also on lower volume day I switched out walking lunges with DB split squat with my front foot on a 2-3 inch box. Here's a video of my second set of intensity squat.

    A little busy this week and poor time management resulted in me having to sort of rush my accessory/assistance work and cut out conditioning on every day except upper volume. It was only one week but I felt much better lifting before yoga rather than vice versa. Also I have been writing "split squat" in my journal for years when I meant "Bulgarian split squat." I had googled split squat recently and I've never done that version, I've always had my back foot elevated. Here's the second set of deadlift on lower intensity day.

First set of squat moved okay, and the first rep of second set went up without issue but for the second rep I got crushed just above parallel. Huge bummer, and mentally took me out of deadlift. Missed my first attempt but knew I could get the weight so I rested a few minutes, got 545 relatively easy, and called it a day for the most part. On the plus side my grip was very solid. My grip has been a good indicator of when I've overreached through training and so far it's good. However, last two-three weeks my sleep has been pretty bad and about four-five weeks ago I started smoking again after having quit a little over a year ago. I dunno, just felt like smoking again, but finished last pack yesterday and am committing to staying off them. They've really ****ed with my training at a crucial point. Going to start singles next week for four-five weeks, then light week, then test maxes.

    Skipped a lot of conditioning this week. Press was meh. About a year ago I pressed 195 for five, but it was with less than stellar form. Although I'd like to be pressing more now on the plus side my form for each rep has improved. Intensity squat flew up. Not a true 1RM but 465 is a PR. Tentatively aiming for 490-495 when I max in a few weeks. 555 on deadlift went up much slower than I though it would. I was aiming for three singles but I may just do one single and a set or two with backoff weights going forward.

    Random stuff

    Feeling off on most of my lifts. Kinda did random workouts with the intention of just keeping myself fresh enough to max out on the 6th.

    Texas Method Week 16 11/3-11/9

    Squat 470x1 485x1 500x1
    Bench 295x1 305x1
    Deadlift 565x1

    Going in I wanted to hit 490/315/600 respectively, so the only lift that disappointed was deadlift. Think I may just have run out of gas. 600 was definitely too optimistic but I think I could have got 585 if I had timed rest between sets better. Bench was meh; even though I've hit 315 in the past, my training lately hasn't been all that hot. Squat was great though. 500 isn't really heavy for someone my age (29) or my weight (243) but it's a milestone I've wanted for years. Hitting 500 has given me the confidence that I'm moving in the right direction. From 11/10-11/16 I'll be deloading, and after that I'll do a minor reset on my volume day weights while rotating my intensity day reps on a 5/3/1 schedule. Considering doing something different for press and bench but not sure what right now.

    Bench 245x5x5
    Press 160x5x5
    Rows 245x5x5
    Jump Rope 6 minutes

    Squat 355x5x5
    (giant set) Deficit Deadlift 315x3x3
    (giant set) DB Bulgarian Split Squat 50x5x3
    (giant set) Abs
    Assault Bike

    Bench 275x1x2 260x3x2 (pause reps) 225x5
    Press 185x1 135x8x3
    (superset) Chin Ups BWx5
    (superset) Dips BWx10
    BB Curls 60x15

    Squat 435x5
    Deadlift 525x5
    Abs
    Back Extension 25x12x3

    As I was going over my log I noticed that I took a deload week few months back but didn't count it as a week, so this week should be 18, not 17. Squat went great on both volume and intensity day. For deadlift on volume day I'm keeping the reps low and using a double overhand grip. Intensity deadlift was okay; 525 for 5 is a pr but if the lift took one second longer I would have lost my grip. Grip has been pretty solid so far so I won't read too much into that unless the problem repeats another week or two. For my upper body lifts I was kind of throwing **** seeing what sticks. For now what I plan on doing is to basically have two volume days, one heavier one lighter. First day 5x5 for bench, press, rows, then some curls. Second day work up to heavy single for bench and press, then 3x8 for both, chin ups and dips afterwards. 5x5 weight will stay constant for two weeks, second week last set is AMRAP. Singles will go up every week (for now). 3x8 stay constant for two weeks.

    Goofed again. Last week was performed from 11/17-11/23, not from 11/10-11/16. Also forgot to write down that I'll be going back to pausing for the first rep of each bench set for three seconds; this includes the heavy singles. Next week I'll do two-three sets of chin ups and dips rather than the one I've been doing.
