    I decided to to ditch the original progression method that's described in GG for T1's, which is Rep Max + Equal number of singles [1xA + Ax1].

    Instead, I'll be doing a rep max + back offs [1xA + 3x(A-2)] with 2 minute rest periods between back offs. Similar to what Nuckols recommended in one of his sample routines, but instead of increasing intensity and decreasing reps over a 4 week cycle, I'll be adopting the continuous GG style progression with static intensity and load, but increasing weekly volume until a rep max threshold is reached. This translates into a little bit more volume and keeps the average intensity higher. I.e, more emphasis on T1's.

    T2's wil primarily be Rep Maxes + Half sets with 1 minute rest periods as suggested in GG. I've enjoyed these.

    For T3's, I've pretty much taken the 3/50 method by Paul Carter, but decreased the rep goal to 40. It translates to something very similar that is generally prescribed for T3's, but is easier to digest IMO. Might cap max reps per set to 15, not sure yet. Rest will probably be about 1 min, unless I'm super setting as I probably will be for the most part.

    Last two weeks were a bit messy, but I did manage to get 3 sessions in each week. Not quite according to plan, but better than nothing. BW is sitting at around 107 kg.

    Pulled some heavier sumo-singles with pretty much max width stance last week. It didn't feel awful, I actually got into a decent position when I was patient off the floor. But dauym I'm slow off the ground this way... Anything > 180 takes ages. And I'm absolutely awful at reps.

    After some self-reflection, I've decided that I need to work on my bracing, pelvic tilt and form in general on both Low Bar Squats & Sumo Deadlift. The Rep Maxes for T1's in GG don't quite cut it IMO, I need submaximal work.

    I've decided to embrace the (inverted, at least for lower body lifts) JUGGERNAUT METHOD for my T1's. I will do light overwarm singles as warm up on every single day.
    T2's will still be Rep Maxes + Half Sets (because I like them). Might just do the half sets on realization weeks.
    T3's got a little boring with the 10-15 rep range, so I'm opening them up for 2-3 hard sets of 6-14 reps.

    On Tuesday, I realized I strained something in my right knee. Decided to do some air squats and what not at home -> learned how to use my glutes to initiate the movement from the bottom of the squat and it completely eliminated the knee pain. I just flex the sht out of my glutes and my quads kinda turn on automatically.

    Knee is still a bit damaged, but I managed todays tempo squats extremely well with the newly found glute activation/initiation. We might be on to something here!

    I mean these are basically pause pulls, because the weight comes off the floor when I set up and pull slack >_>

    Tempo Squat (5-3-0)
    4 x 100
    4x2 x 100
    ^ Went preatty easy to make sure I don't damage my knee any more. Reps were super explosive tho.

    Single Leg RDL

    ^ Challenging, glutes were on fire.

    Had an unfortunate off week so starting again, decided to restructure the week to resemble BBM-templates. Limited the exercise count to 6 per day as well. Starting all T3's with 2 hard sets per exercise, moving to 3 if this feels insufficient (doubt it, because T1/Jugger volume is quite high).

    Low Bar Squat
    2 x 130, 1 x 145
    10x5 x 100
    Did my best to drive with glutes from the bottom, felt great. Inner thighs felt really fatigued/strained towards the end here. No knee pain. Took 80 second rests from the get go because I knew I wouldn't have made it with 60 secs, worked out quite alright.

    I'm really hoping to get a good year of training in.

    I want to finally get closer to that 700 kg total, didn't make much if any progress in 2019 - was one hell of a year.

    ^ This cable row is a lot heavier than the one I used last week, for some reason.


    Having completed the first cycle for squats - I must say there are things I dislike about the inverted Juggernaut method. I'll have to re-evaluate whether I should make some changes or not. I don't think it's suitable for my current needs. More frequent exposure with slightly higher intensity and lower volume per session would be far more beneficial for my technique development - which is the current goal.

    Kept some of the principals behind Inverted Juggernaut Method and tuned it slightly. Don't personally see a point with high reps for the main movements, so cut down the program to three waves with lower rep ranges: 7, 5 and 3 - each 4 weeks long.

    Cut down on some of the fluff accessories too. Less emphasis on trying to hit a perfect combination of everything within each block, more liberty to focus on specific things in each block. Chins & Dips will be done 2x/week in this block, for instance.

    Starting with the 3's Wave to get a slightly more accurate perception of my current TM's. This waves main movement periodization happens to coincide exactly with Greg Nuckols' 2x Int DL percentages, sets & reps.

    ^ Just did a whole bunch of light sets with 45-90 sec rests lol. The exercise itself felt awkward after the hiatus so didn't feel like pushing it. Next week I'll do a RM + half sets.
