    Didn't sleep well last night and I think the overall volume may be a bit high. So I'm going to start doing:

    Tuesday - upper body compound, lower body isolation
    Thursday - lower body compound, upper body isolation
    Saturday - upper body compound
    Sunday - lower body compound

    Today I did:

    Paused high bar back squats: 250x3x3, 225x5
    Paused bulgarian split squats: 70s x3

    The squats felt very good and looked good on video. Really liking the new squat shoes. I'm extremely tempted to just focus solely on squatting but I want to keep the progress slow so we'll see if I can resist, lol.

    Today's workout:

    Paused high bar back squats: 260x5x3 (making continued progress, these reps all felt good, no pain after warming-up at all)
    Deficit RDLs: 335x5
    Leg extensions: 180x6, 160x6, 135x8 (all reps with a 3 second negative)
    Leg curls: 135x4, 115x6, 90x8 (all reps with a 3 second negative
    Abduction: 30x7

    Great workout all around. Very pleased the squats are going up so readily. Nice to be able to finally train them productively, hopefully I can avoid injury.

    Good to hear about the success on the squats. It's a nemesis lift for me so I can somewhat relate to the feeling of success.

    Can't remember, are you working through a pre-existing injury or just speaking in general?
    Bench: 320
    Squat: 375
    Deadlift: 495

    Age 18-19 I maxed at 385 pounds while weighing ~165. Then I tore my right meniscus. Went to see an orthopedic surgeon who told me I could not squat again without surgery and I didn't want to get surgery at the time (I was in college and didn't want the expense + difficulty getting around campus) so I stopped squatting for years. Had I known then what I know now I would have approached it differently. Eventually I decided to try squatting again and I was able to do it, but I do feel it at times and as a result of this I've altered my form many times over the years and have had a lot of setbacks along the way. Current form seems to be working perfectly well at this point (knock on wood). We'll see what happens over the next several weeks/months.

    Thank you, hopefully I can keep making progress!

    Paused leaning back underhand pulldowns: 180x7, 180x5, 160x
    Dips: BW+45x5/BWx3 (4N/1P)

    Incline dumbbell bench press/decline push-ups: 50x10/7
    Hammer grip chins/inverted rows: BW+45x5/6
    Cable cross-armed laterals: 15x4/10x3
    Dumbbell curls: 50x3/40x4
    Tricep overhead extensions/pushdowns: 15x11/6
    Rear delt cable flyes: 10x8/5x5

    No progress with the benching but my left elbow was bothering me a bit. The last warm-up felt really good though. Otherwise everything else went well.

    Today's workout:

    Paused high bar back squats: 265x5x3
    Leg extensions: 160x3/4/4/3/135x4/115x5/90x5
    Leg curls: 115x3/4/3/2, 90x4, 70x4

    That's it. Left elbow was not happy with the squats. On the bright side, this makes me think it is more likely that this did hold back my benching yesterday. I may switch to back squats one day and front squats the other day and barbell bench pressing only once weekly (or not at all... I've never cared about the movement, lol).

    Today's workout:
    Functional trainer bench press supersetted with decline push-ups:
    100x9 -> 8
    100x6 -> 4
    100x5 -> 3

    Underhand pull-downs supersetted with seated rows:
    140x9 -> 140x4
    140x6 -> 115x6
    140x5/3 -> 115x5/3

    Left elbow is still bothering me a decent amount so it's gonna be a bit before I do anything heavy.

    Did a vlog type video for the first time, took awhile, lol. Gonna be much quicker when I get the hang of this more, right now I'm just trying to get experience:

    Quick annoying update, I seem to have a cold of some sort. I'll get tested for COVID-19 tomorrow morning. This could in part explain the elbow inflammation yesterday and less likely with squats on Sunday, but historically I get arthralgias 1-2 days before I get other viral symptoms. I don't feel too bad and could probably lift tomorrow but I'll keep it light (which will be good anyway if I do front squats as I have not done them in awhile) with some tempo work.

    My cold was horrible on Thursday/Friday, felt better Saturday and almost back to normal today. Worked out today:

    Front squats: 155x5, 175x5, 195x5 (felt wonderful)
    Deficit Romanian deadlifts: 345x5 (felt very good)
    Weighted dips: BW+115x1/BW+70x3/BW+45x3/BWx3 with slow eccentrics
    Weighted swivel grip chins: BW+115x1/BW+70x3/BW+45x3/BWx3 with slow eccentrics

    Very happy with all of this. Felt the left elbow a bit on the last exercise but not in a negative way. Video of the workout below, particularly for people who want to see how deeply I go on dips.



    As an aside, I'm getting close to the point where I can spend more time on YouTube and my website, probably another 2 weeks before I can start attacking those in a much bigger way.

    Impressive depth and form on that front squat! Same with the dips, impressive numbers for your frame imo.

    Good to hear your cold passed, looking forward to you creating more content in the coming weeks. Maybe we can get you a better camera and webcam lol

    Thank you, I'm not at my strongest now but I'll get back there. I am willing to spend however much I need on a good webcam/camera/etc, also probably want to get a much more powerful computer to use Premiere Pro and other editing software. Just need to pick what I want to buy, which is the hard part, lol.

    Today's workout:

    Flat barbell bench press: 200x1/185x5/155x5/135x6 - I felt this ever so slightly in my left elbow but otherwise this all felt great and I had another 5-10 pounds in me on the top single, the 200 felt easier than the 195 I did a few weeks ago
    Paused swivel-grip chin-ups: BW+135x1/BW+90x3/BW+45x4/BWx3 (felt great to use 3 plates again)
    Paused dips: BW+90x3/BW+45x4/BWx3 (all felt good)
    Paused seated rows: 180x4/140x4/90x6 (all felt good)

    Quite happy with all of this. Left shoulder is still slightly sore from the Moderna booster I got 3 days ago so I did not do any isolation movements.

    Today's workout:

    High bar back squats: 245x7, 245x5, 245x5
    Paused deadlifts: 375x5
    Leg extensions: 180x5/135x4/90x4
    Leg curls: 135x4/90x4/45x5



    I went ahead and purchased a legit webcam; should arrive Sunday. After making this video I realized with my phone camera it is likely out of focus, making the quality look more poor than it actually is. I did purchase a ring light so the lighting should be better. Next time I'll try to adjust the focus well and if the quality still isn't great then I'll go ahead an purchase a legit camera.

    Today's workout:

    Front squats: 245x5, 245x3, 245x3, 245x3
    Nordic leg curls: 10

    Elbows are still bothering me a bit which is annoying. I may just move forward with front squats for the time being. Dips thus far have not seemed to bother my elbows as much as benching so I will probably prioritize them if they do not bother me. Elbows were not a factor with the front squats, which all felt good.

    Today's workout:

    Front squats: 255x5, 225x2x5 (these all felt good)
    Deficit RDLs: 365x5
    Leg extensions: 180x5/135x4/90x5/45x6
    Nordic leg curls: 12

    Quite happy with this. The squats and the set of deadlifts were all hard. 255x5 is probably about the most I've ever done on front squats and certainly not while this light so I'm thrilled with this; hopefully I can keep pushing without injury.

    Today's workout:

    Flat barbell bench press: 205x1/185x3/165x4/135x8 (1st 3 sets paused, last was touch & go)
    Underhand leaning back lat pulldowns: 180x4/160x4/140x3/110x6
    Dips: BW+90x3/BW+45x4/BWx4
    Seated rows: 180x7/140x7/110x9
    Incline dumbbell bench press: 70x6/60x4/40x4
    Standing dumbbell rows: 90x7/90x4, then I did 3 swivel grip chin-ups

    My elbow tolerated this without issue, which is great. Good workout all around. Also, got a new webcam that is much better and I may even be able to film videos in my gym with it. I'll play around with it on Saturday.

    Today's workout:

    Front squats: 265x4, 225x4x5
    Leg extensions: 180x7/180x3/135x4/90x5
    Nordic leg curls: 7

    Very happy with the front squats. I think this is the most I've ever done with 265 and I am weighing ~150 now. I did a slight pause with all of them too.
