    October 13, 2021: Bench Press - 30 Degree Incline
    165 pounds x 1 rep
    135 pounds x 3 reps

    The 165 tied my PR on this, and went up smoothly. I'm fairly confident I had another rep in me. Did not want to go to failure today, so I didn't push it. Took it a bit easy on the back off work, just doing 1 set instead of 3. Just felt like I needed to leave something in the tank, so I did.

    Nice two sessions and that deadlift sounded like one hell of a lift.

    Thanks man. Deadlifting is always fun.


    October 14, 2021: Squat - Wide Stance
    205 pounds x 1 rep

    Did more reps than normal on the ramp up because I'm pretty uncomfortable doing squats with a wide stance. Found that I wasn't going deep enough initially. Also had to play around with foot placement. Found that even 135 pounds was not easy for me with a wide stance. 155 was about the same. Then I got into a groove and the reps started getting easier. The single at 205 was around an 8 RPE. Planned to do back off work at 185. The first rep at that weight was a grind, so I called it off right there. Just inconsistent right now. Plus I'm overall just weaker with the wider stance, lol. But I'm very happy with how it went, and expect it to improve steadily the next couple of times I do it.

    I always heated wide stance squats. I never felt I was even hitting depth.

    Yeah, I hate them too. That's part of the reason I'm doing them, lmao! I need to build up my hip strength and have just been putting it off forever because they feel so hard for me. The worse thing is that I feel like I'm hitting depth, but then I watch the video and it looks like I'm 4 or 5 inches too high...ugh. I kind of went through a similar phase when I first started doing Sumo deads too, so I'm sure I'll work through it, and maybe even actually like them eventually. I hope...

    October 16, 2021: Larsen Press
    120 pounds - 6 sets x 6 reps

    This was it for today. It was easier than 115 was last time around, but I'm not surprised by that. The same thing happened last time I did 6x6's consistently - they often got seem to get easier from week to week despite the weight increasing. I'm sure it's largely a matter of acclimating to the volume.

    Since I had mentioned a while back that my bench is getting tighter and more consistent, figured I better post up some video. This is from last week - 3 count paused bench at 165 pounds (which was a PR).

    October 17, 2021: Trap Bar Deadlift
    335 pounds x 3 reps
    245 pounds x 15 reps

    Never really felt comfortable with this lift until today, when something finally clicked. Decided to cap it out at 335 and see how many reps I could get. Could've had more but my grip gave out. The knurling is definitely not as good as on my normal bar. I strapped up for the back off work where I just dropped a plate off each side and did an AMRAP. To be honest, there was still several reps in the tank (maybe another 5 - maybe more than that), but I started getting nauseous since I'm just not used to doing higher rep work, especially on deads. This was a good change up for me. I should be able to push the weight up a fair amount next time around.
