    3/17/2017: St Patrick's Leg Day

    Squats: warmups, 435 x3.
    Deadlifts: warmups, 415 3x4, 455 x1 (hook grip).

    Another good round of squats an deads, this time with with a modified deadlift routine that didn't make me question my life due to high reps-per-set. Did a bonus 455 with hook grip after as I haven't done much hook grip in a bit. The lift felt good, the thumbs did not, though that's expected.

    03/20/2017: Big Bench Day Continues

    Bench: 245 3x4, x2, x1.
    EZ Bar Curls: 50 2x8.
    Pullups: 2x8
    Pinch grip walks: 25lb plates 2x 30 seconds.

    Big bench hits the big stall point. Turns out, I did pretty well this time, hitting 4 reps on the first 3 sets before tiring a bit. No complaints there at all. I'll take the progress gladly. After that, a bit of curling was about all I could handle so I didn't push anything more. Just did some pullups and more grip training beyond that. You won't keep me down forever, pinch grip climbing route!

    3/21/2017: Squats and Squats

    Squats: warmups, 420 4x3.
    Front Squats: warmups, 240 2x3.

    Another good day of squatting. The weight bump was good but stayed cautious with 4x3. The bump on front squats was pretty good as well.

    3/23/2017: Volume... Cut Short

    Bench: warmups, 200 3x10, 1x8.

    As noted, my workout cut trimmed by the need to get back to work. As it is, my schedule was all over the place today so I'll take what I can get. No shoulder work as planned but it is what it is. I'll take the rep increases on 200 lbs, though.

    3/24/2016: Rollin rollin rollin. Keep that leg day rollin...

    Squats: warmups, 445 x3.
    Deadlifts: warmups, 425 3x3, 465 x1 hook grip.

    Leg day continues to go well. Went for a tiring 445x3 on squats. Deadlifts also went well with 3x3, continuing with the more volume and a bit less weight theory for now. Might need to bump that up a bit as it's not all that far behind my squat right now. Hopefully next week can realize a good bump at the same number of reps.

    3/27/2017: Bench Intensity

    Bench: warmups, 245 x4, 250 2x3.
    Close grip bench: 95 x10, 135 3x8.
    Pullups: 2x4
    Curls: 45 x8, 50 2x8
    Cable rows: 55 2x8.

    It's amazing how much time I can squeeze into a skipped bench set, honestly. That and being a bit more time efficient, accessories were had in plentiful amounts in comparison to my typical intensity bench day. I was originally planning for bench to be 245 (3-4)x5 but just knew that 5th rep wasn't happening. I ended up adjusting and going for a weight bump and 3-rep sets which worked out pretty well. Not going to be able to sustain weekly increases like that so I'll probably look at a more intense week next week before taking a break for my vacation week, then starting the routine over. Still, it's definite progress so I'm rather pleased with it.

    3/28/2017: Leg Day aka I Can't Plate Math

    Squats: warmups, 440 x3, 420 2x4, 1x3
    Front squats: warmups, 240 2x4

    Apparently I can't put 420 on. First set had me wondering what the hell was going on. Why did those first 3 reps feel that tough? I reracked, hoping to rest a bit and try again. Then I looked. Then I laughed. I could not plate math and had 440 on instead of 420. I adjusted from there and kept going. Not exactly what I'd originally planned but I'll gladly take it.
