    Sumo DL
    275 x 5
    315 x 5
    360 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 15

    Bench
    165 x 5
    205 x 5
    235 x 5

    Rows
    Did some tbar rows then my station got stolen so I switched to seated rows with a straight bar

    Assistance
    biceps + triceps 1 set each

    Notes
    Weight is back down to 165.8 this morning, which is pretty nice considering the level of overeating that happened the last 2 out of the last 3 weekends.

    Deadlift felt good as usual lately.

    Bench... I asked for a spot on the the last set, after the set at 205 felt heavy. I hit my rep goal of 5. I would have stopped at 3 reps without a spot. With the way this block is designed, I'm never at 100% strength because I did AMRAP OHP the day prior. I'm supposed to just do a 5x5, but I go for an AMRAP instead on the last set which leaves me slightly under-recovered for the bench the following day. I should follow the program as written or find a different template I like better.

    I'm supposed to run tomorrow, but my quads are feeling a little beat up.

    Thursday August 1st

    Jog: 4.52 miles : 36:55 (8:13, 8:23, 8:08, 8:03)

    Felt like doing a long run today which was a nice change of pace because I kept it at about an RPE 7 for the entire run which is much easier than the RPE 8-10 I usually do my 3 miles at. I'll do at least one 6.5 mile run (10km) before it gets cold. My running shoes are falling apart. I've had them for like 5 years. Time to invest in a new pair.

    Weight this morning 166.

    my running App is giving me weird information. It says the run I did on July 30th was a 3 mile PR at 21:59 (4 second PR), but the time stamps show it was 22:10. Not sure what to believe. I think I'm going to chalk it up as a PR and believe the app. I noticed it didn't tell me I hit 3 miles until like almost 100 meters further than usual on Tuesday.

    Saturday August 3rd

    Squat
    205 x 3
    235 x 3
    265 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 10

    OHP
    95 x 5
    125 x 5
    135 x 9

    Chin Up
    10 x 5
    20 x 5
    30 x 5
    35 x 11 (PR)

    RDL
    135 x 10
    225 x 3
    275 x 3
    315 x 10

    Calves 2-3 sets to failure

    Notes
    It's going to sound silly because all my squats literally look the same on camera, but I think I found some ques and a stance that feels like it works today. I was able to stay tight without feeling off balance and keeping my heels on the ground throughout. They're not quite at depth... but honestly I think I just need to accept that my Low Bar squat right now is high and I'm not going to try and address it too much. They FEEL so much deeper than they really are.

    I'm able to do ATG High bar squats at the moment so when I eventually switch back to high bar, I'll do them ATG and hopefully sometime in a far away time, having done those ATG HB squats will have helped me squat deeper LB.

    OHP is going pretty well. I don't think 9 reps @ 135 is a PR, will need to look back at older training logs, but @ 165 BW, I'm very happy with it.

    Chin ups + 35 pounds for 11 reps is a 3 rep PR. I saw a guy doing chin ups with straps today and I immediately thought I would feel a lot stronger like that, but I'm going to avoid using straps on stuff I don't need to on. But I'll take a page out of ECGordyn's book and do my pendlay rows with straps. Maybe that's his secret to his monster Pendlay row.

    RDL .. There was no point in doing the heavy set at 315 because I was using my glutes more than I intended because the weight was heavy. I like to do these with a focus on my hams so I'll do them maybe at 275 instead and focus on the hams. I think maybe I had my toes pointed out more than I should have.

    I have to accept the fact that doing the AMRAP OHP today will effect my bench strength tomorrow, as a result this is the last time I'll run this "portals" variation. Will pop open my book to look for a different leader template that I like.

    Sunday August 4th

    Pause Bench
    160 x 3
    190 x 3
    210 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 8 (last set was TnGo)

    T-Bar Row
    115 x 5
    125 x 5, 7, 7, 7, 10

    SUMO DL
    295 x 5
    385 x 5
    425 x 5

    Assistance
    Dumbell bicep curls - 40 x 6, 6, 6
    Tricep push downs 3 sets
    Hamstring curls 1 set to failure
    Facepulls - 1 set

    Notes

    Feeling pretty good about my Paused bench. I feel like I paused longer than I did on the last cycle I did these, and I'm using a narrower grip which feels more natural to me. I thought I'd get more than 8 on the AMRAP. I got 12 last time, but I did the AMRAP first instead of last, and I hadn't done any upper body work the day before on the last cycle.

    T-Bar row feels good. I do the first 4 sets with a dead hang at the bottom, and the last set is more like a TnGo where I don't start the rep from a dead stop.

    SUMO DL - It takes a big commitment to get 425 off the ground. These are hard AF, especially after a lower day yesterday.

    I've got a jog planned later today which is not likely to go very well.

    Been under the weather the last few days. The squat felt surprisingly light today. The OHP was harder than expected but I had to clean these from the floor each set so that might be part of it.

    Great work continues! A tip of the hat for getting it done while not feeling your best, and hitting those OHP after having to clean them. I have heard the clean called "The athlete's exercise."---for good reason.

    Haven't been updating this log. I've been dealing with some unusually high levels of stress at work, and at home. Not getting good quality sleep and I've been under the weather for several weeks. I ended up cutting the diet short as I typically do when I get to within striking distance of the look I really want, but I'm okay with it.

    I finished my cut about 4 weeks ago at 165-166 moving average weight. My current 10 day moving average is 169.5.

    Notable lifts since my last update

    OHP
    180 x 1 (PR)

    Squat
    355 x 1 @ 170 BW (body weight pr)

    Deadlift
    415 x 11 (rep pr .. grip failed, i had more in the tank)
    455 x 3 (rep pr)
    465 x 1 (new 1rm)
    475 x 1 (failed)

    I also started working in conventional Deadlifts into the mix as an accessory

    I did a bunch of heavy singles today @ 405
    5 sets of 3 at 385
    5x5 at 365

    Bench
    250 x 2
    260 x 1 (will try this tomorrow)

    Pull up
    +75 x 3 (pr)
    +85 x 2 (pr)

    It's pretty cool because despite the high stress, lack of sleep and general malaise that little bit of extra food has the numbers on the bar moving back up instead of trending down. I'm pretty sure I'll get a 495 pound DL by year end. Anyway... I've got holiday next week and hopefully I'll clear up my work stress by the end of the week so I can get back to sleeping better and training harder. I've only got video of a few of these lifts.

    Anyway. Hope to be back to more regular blogging here about my fitness journey as it's something I actually quite enjoy.

    Bench
    180 x 5
    205 x 3
    230 x 1
    240 x 1
    250 x 1
    260 x 1
    230 x 4 (amrap wtf?)

    Various pulling stuff
    Did some different pulling variations
    1 arm dumbell row 85 x 12 x 3

    seated row 2-3 sets

    Dumbell bench
    85 x 7, 7, 7, 7, 7

    accessories
    some biceps and tricep fluff


    Notes
    only 4 reps on the amrap which is pretty sad, but i got 260 for a clean single which I failed the last time I tried. Pushing a near failure single severely diminishes the rest of the training session. I think I'm going to go back to doing the AMRAP first, followed by the heavy 3s & 1s. This is the last workout before my vacation to mexico with the wifey for a week. Really looking forward to taking a week off form work and the children. The hotel has a squat rack and a few barbells. Call me crazy, but I love getting a few training sessions in while I'm on holiday.

    On vacation this week. The resort has an excellent gym. It's training max test week.

    Failed my squat at 315 x5 and only got 4 reps. Leaving it at 305

    Got my OHP at 145x5 for strict pause press. Will upload a video later.

    Failed my bench at 245 x 5 but was so close to getting it. Leaving TM at 240

    Got my sumo DL at 445 x 5. I'm going to pull 500 pounds before the end of the year for sure.

    I've been drinking and eating like a pig for 5 days now. My weight has gone from 168 to 178 but this scale reads 2 pounds heavier than the one at home and the extra fluid and food in my digestive tract is accounting for a good 5 pounds. Will be interested to see how much actual fat I've put on as my ****ing pants that I wore on day 1 don't fit anymore.

    Edit: video of OHP.

    Good looking press reps. Keep that DL going man, I dream of 500 but can't even do 4.

    Watch that Mexican food, it'll blimp you up quick lol. I love it but I got nothing like it over here. Originally from Texas so I miss Mex food like I miss my own blood.

    Blimped up quick I did... Just a little before and after of day 1 vs day 7.
    https://imgur.com/gallery/1ngpH32/comment/1718600323 - before after pic

    The lighting is clearly much better in the first pic but the abs are just about gone now. My weight still tracking around 177 vs the 167 prior to the trip. If it doesn't level out to 175 or below in the next few days, I'm considering going on a short cut to drop a few pounds of fat. This bulk was supposed to be at a rate of 0.25 - 0.5 pounds per week so in a week I, did 10 months of bulking. Not unimpressive I'd say if I gained 10 pounds of real weight in 1 week.

    Anyway, had a training session today.

    Pause Bench
    155 x 5
    185 x 5
    205 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 6

    7 sets total with 5 of them at RPE 8-9

    Low Bar Squat
    225 x 5
    275 x 5
    305 x 5

    Front Squat
    Did these beltless
    205 x 5, 5

    New Hip thrust machine 1 set

    Notes
    I think the reason I'm struggling with squatting so much is the lower volume I'm doing relative to my Deadlift and other lifts. I'll try working in maybe front squats or highbar squats as an accessory.

    OHP was easy. None of the sets were more than an RPE 7. Did it beltless and strapless

    The Low Bar at 305 x 5 was a lot harder than I'd like.

    One of the trainers approached me and my buddy and said they're doing like an exhibition mock powerlifting meet at the gym. Nothing official and there won't be any entry cost and suggested that we enter. I thought it would be hella fun so I immediately agreed. Trev wasn't as excited about it because he doesn't barbell bench. He probably knows his squat is a few inches shy of depth and he can't pull anything heavy without straps.

    Anyway.... Once i get a date and some more details I guess I'll have to somehow work-in some heavy singles doubles and triples regularly to prep for 1RM attempt on meet day.

    Pull ups

    10, 10, 8, 12, 12

    Ab work
    few sets of rollers

    Notes
    That gym meet I got invited to has me straying from what I originally planned. Got me in the mood to practice heavy singles as it's not something I ever really do and think it could be fun. Nothing grindy, just strong singles.

    Did the Sumo DL without any straps. As a side note... I tried to pull 445 a few times with a belt and I couldn't do it. I'm stronger at this lift beltless. The set of 16 or 17 was obviously with straps.

    Bench was a huge surprise. Going into this workout, I thought there was a small chance I could get 240 or maybe max 245 with a pause. I was able to do 255 with pretty good bar speed and an acceptable pause. My TnGo vs my pause bench 1rm seems to not be very far apart. I watched a Jeff Nippard video about a week ago that made me look at leg drive a little different and I feel like I'm getting more out of it than I did before.

    Going to video some lifts from my morning workouts this weekend.

    That meet sounds cool, especially since it's convenient and free. The meet I thought about going to is 5 hours away with travel expenses, leaving work early on Friday, renting a vehicle in the other city, blah blah.

    Doing your singles is a good idea. There are also "peak and taper" programs out there which you might find useful. In the week before the meet, I wouldn't do more than 50% of your max. Depending on how much time you have until the meet, you could probably build a bit more strength, and maybe drop a weight class too. Right now your lifts look pretty competitive for your bodyweight.

    Yeah I'm pretty stoked about the gym meet. It seems like there's a pretty reasonable chance it won't happen though. I'll keep my fingers crossed in the mean time because I've wanted to do one for a while and the convenience factor is pretty huge in this case. Especially compared to what you described with the long drive and renting a car and all that.

    I'll definitely do some sort of taper where I don't push anything overly heavy the week beforehand, and I'll look to practice some heavy singles. If I get a date, I might look specifically for like a "meet prep" type of program.

    Saturday morning lift

    Low Bar Squat
    135 x 8
    185 x 5
    225 x 5
    275 x 1
    315 x 1, 1, 1, 1
    275 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

    OHP
    95 x 5
    115 x 5
    135 x 5
    145 x 6

    Chin Up
    20 x 5
    30 x 5
    40 x 5

    Few sets of calves after

    Notes
    Had company over last night and we had a few drinks. Didn't get much sleep for this session.

    Squat - Felt pretty bad. If I don't feel like I'm improving at this lift then in the very near future I'm going to switch this lift to either Front squat, or AtG high bar squat.

    OHP
    I wanted 7 on the set at 145, but I thought I had maybe misloaded the weight and forgot to add the 5 on one of the sides and it threw off the whole set. If I get a good night rest next Friday night the goal is 8 and anything short of 7 is a huge fail. The previous week I got 6 and it felt like I had at least 2 in the tank then.

    Chin
    This felt hard. I felt underrecovered from the Chin ups I did at home a few nights ago. Lats were sore. I had to skip some rest days trying to get my schedule back in order after my week in mexico.

    Notes
    Went camping with the in-laws, wife/kids. I agreed to stay the night at the campsite because there was a gym 5 minutes from the grounds. Got to the gym at 6am, and the place was a freaking library. No weights clanging, no music, just a few 60 year olds on the elypticals. Took a look at the floors and they weren't matted and knew that my DL session was going to have its volume cut short.

    Pause Bench - I didn't really pause the single at 255. I got a much better pause earlier this week and it was a bit of a grinder this morning. Lifting my head off the bench on the descent feels much stronger but I"m not sure if that'll be aloud. The sets at 215 felt good. It might be a 5x5 PR for pause work.

    Sumo DL - It was so freaking loud when I set the weights down on this hard floor. I had to control the eccentric more than I usually do. I failed to get the weight off the ground on that 445 set, but immediately tried again. Finding the right spot to pull from makes a huge difference in the amount of weight I can lift. I only did 5 reps. The goal is to get 7 next week @ 445.

    Pendlay - These were loud as hell too. I wanted to keep these relatively low RPE so that it wouldn't mess with my DL.

    Notes
    OHP was not very challenging. No belt, no wraps for this session.

    Pull ups were more challenging than I expected, but I'm doing a lot of volume on this movement due to being lazy and not doing horizontal pulls

    Low bar squat i forgot to put on my sleeves. I went deeper than usual on this squat session in hopes of finding something that doesn't feel awkward. I get hella bad ankle pronation that gets worse the deeper I get. It looks really weird from the back. I have some videos of this that I may upload later. I suspect my biggest problem with this lift is my ankles/feet. Work in progress.

    Notes

    Sumo Felt kinda heavier ish today. Quads were a little sore from yesterdays squats. People at the gym often say stuff to me when I pull a heavy weight for high reps. I probably come off as kind of rude when some people talk to me as I don't engage much with females. I tend to be kind of short if they throw a compliment my way. I'd hate for my wife to get into training one day and it turns out I'm on a first name basis with the ladies at the gym.

    Pause Bench - Pretty stoked about getting 240 with a pause for 5. I had a spotter on this and there's a chance he gave me a small nudge on the 5th rep. I wouldn't have attempted the 5th rep and maybe even the 4th rep without a spot. He said he didn't touch the bar but I'm not convinced. I can bench this style nearly the same weight as TnGo. I believe the main reason is I'm bringing the bar down much faster on the pause work whereas when I do TnGo at this weight, I tend to bring the bar down slower thereby wasting energy.

    I'm also thinking this powerlifting gym thing isn't going to happen. I haven't heard from the dude organizing it. I'll try and chat with him next time I see him.

    Either way though, it's kind of got me into pushing some heavier sets with less than 5 reps.

    Banded squats
    135x5
    115x5
    115x5





    Going to try and strength my adductor and hopefully it will help the weird stuff that happens at my feet when I squat

    I'm pretty sure the OHP is a pr. I'm kinda cheating because I initiate the movement by sort of bouncing off my upper chest. I'm going to incorporate push presses as an accessory next cycle.

    OHP felt strong. I'm excited to do some heavy triples 6 ish weeks from now. I'd be really happy to get 160-165 for a triple but that may be a little optimistic.

    The Pulls/chin ups are getting harder.

    Low bar squat. I was able to keep my heels relatively planted compared to usual so that's progress. Also getting +1 rep is technically a win as I only got 5 reps the previous 2 weeks. Feels like a 405 squat is brutally far away at this rate. Oh well. I'll keep focusing more on the Deadlift for now

    Bunch of random stuff for 1-2 sets.

    Im stronger than I've ever been at Deadlift and OHP so every session is a new either rep pr or 5x5 pr. The deadlifts felt especially taxing today for some reason. The top set at 240 on bench is an rpe 10 which is why I only got 3 reps on the following back off set.

    I have a choice to either deload next week or do another similar cycle. I got 2 days rest to figure that out.

    Notes
    The weekend morning sessions are so hit and miss because getting up at 5 doesn't always agree with me.

    The squats are feeling terrible. I've been working on trying to keep my heels planted and doing so is starting to cause knee pain. Really frustrated with this lift as of late, but everything else is going good. I have really bad flat feet and I think I'm going to try getting a pair of orthotics in my lifting shoes. There's a chance it'll help a lot.

    OHP - Felt good. The goal here is get 5 this week, 6 the following week and 7 the week after @ 150. May be a bit too optimistic. I like the push press accessory here.

    Notes
    Pause bench is going really well. 1 month ago each set would have been an rpe 9-10. But this session never exceeded rpe 7. I tried one set with a very wide grip just to see how it felt. Shoulders are feeling good lately. It didn't feel bad but not as strong as my narrow grip that I use but that's with 0 practice.

    Brutally pissed about the sumo DL. I filmed the first fail lift. Then on set which I ended up getting I didnt hit the record button which is why I tried 2 more times. Overall it was much harder then expected and this next 3 week block is going to require better technique if I want to get the 454x5 sets every
    Sunday. I didn't sleeep well last night. Also... My 1rm and 5rm are the same for this lift.

    Edit : videos

    Had to clean the OHP. Not a very challenging weight today.

    Happy to get the squat @315x5 which I failed the last time I tried it.

    I did the conventional just for funsies.

    Was short on time so no accessories today.
