    Nice squats and deads. That was a lot of volume on deads in a weeks time though it seems to be working well for you. Nice numbers in here.
    My take is that mixed grip deadlifts create a lot more strain on the back muscles since the weight is offset. Double overhand w/straps I don't find the higher workload to be a problem as long as I watch my total volume. I'm only hitting deads twice every eight training days so when you account for weekends the average frequency isn't actually that high. The other two cycles I do power cleans and hip thrusts instead which seems to balance it out. I suspect my leverages for deadlifts are good as well.

    Squats on the other hand I just suck at, mostly due to various posture and flexibility issues. I've gotten better at them over time but it's been a long hard grind. On the plus side I think SSB squats are nicely hitting some of my weak points and I'm hoping to get some good gains out of that.

    Friday Oct 11 - Deload Pull Day
    -------------------------------------
    Posture Work [EXTD 15x5-60s]
    DB Pullovers 3x12DPx80w40 SETS: 12 12 8/4
    Face Pulls (3s) 5x15DPx30 SETS: 13 13 13 13 13
    Kroc Rows 1x30DPx85w60x5 SETS: 25
    Rear Delt Raise 3x8x147w95
    Hip Thrusts (3s) 3x8x315
    HIPF 3E-40s

    1. New Rogue hip thruster bench worked well.
    2. Finally figured out why the Powertec was making noise / less smooth on face pulls. The cable is scraping the frame because they have the pulley buried too far into the support. Tried doing them kneeling but didn't like the angle, not sure how to work around this.

    Posture Work [EXTD 15x5-60s]
    Chinups 3x5x22.25wbw
    T-Bar Rows 3x5x193w135
    CS::TRX Reverse Flyes/Bent Laterals 5x12 :: 5x12DPx10 SETS: 12 12 12 12 12
    Deadlifts 3x5x421w315M6
    XLEG 3x50-60s

    Five sets on the flyes/laterals takes too long, I'm going to drop that to three sets going forward.

    The sweat pants / moxy socks / form change solved my shin scraping problem. The only downside is that the weights are bouncing more at the bottom so I lost a bit of rep quality, still for bodybuilding purposes I think that's an acceptable tradeoff.

    Real nice setup and equipment choices.
    Currently building my own garage gym.
    Got the barbell, weights, and dumbells.
    Just need to finish the wall so I can mount the rack.

    I'm very happy with it. The only piece that was really a compromise was the Powertec, good for the price and footprint but if you have the money/space then get something else.

    The time savings and convenience of having a home gym is amazing, totally worth it.

    Warmup [BIKE-5m@16]
    Bradford Press 3x5x96wbar
    SSB Squats 3x5x170w135
    CS::Roman Situps/Reverse Curls 3x15DPx20 SETS: 13 13 13 :: EZ+21-3x10
    Fat Bench 3x5x167.5w135/Bar
    OVHD 3x95-40s

    Bench was harder than expected today, apparently I went up too fast, going to hold there a bit till I catch up. For some reason my setup was too close to the monos today, I hit them on the way up several times. I don't feel like I did anything different but I'll have to focus on better positioning next time.

    SSB Squats still progressing nicely.

    Bent Rows 3x3x240w185
    Deadlifts [BANKx225x2-30s] 3x3x453w315M6

    Tried something different on the deadlifts today and used my old texas power bar instead of the olympic wl bar. Didn't bang up my shins and I didn't have to let it bounce at the bottom. Moxy socks and sweats were more than enough to protect me with the smoother knurling on that bar. I didn't miss the extra whip at all so I'm going to keep that change for a while and see how it goes.

    Tuesday Oct 22 - Power Push Day
    ---------------------------------------
    Warmup [BIKE-5m@16]
    Overhead Press 3x3x158.5w95
    Squats 3x3x295.5w225/135P5T5
    Bench 3x3x203w135
    Dips 3x8x36wbw
    WSST EZ+14x3-60s

    1. Much better workout this time than last cycle, finished all reps on bench and OHP.
    2. Moved my setup on bench and was able to avoid the monos no problem today. Still love them for bench press.
    3. My squat form has me hitting the monos often on the way up unless I'm really careful, today I just stepped back a bit instead. Not sure if that means there is a problem with my form, my posture or the monos but I decided I don't really care and will probably just do a small back step regularly. I got the monos mostly for bench and if they weren't such a pain to move I'd likely use j-hooks for squatting anyways.
    4. Squats are starting to move up regularly, I think my recent routine changes are hitting my weak points better and giving me more squat volume. Very happy with this since they've been stuck or grinding up slow for a quite a while.
    5. Bench progress still sucks but my shoulder pain is nearly gone. Between the monos and the new form I think I've stopped whatever I was doing that was causing me to get injured and allowed it to heal up. I feel like I could probably use more bench volume if I can figure out a way to squeeze it in.

    I wanted to be sure I had shrugs nailed so I did extra reps today instead of going up in weight but I think I'm going to stick with weight progression going forward. GHRs are going well, full extension today.

    Wednesday Oct 30 - Strength Push Day
    ---------------------------------------------
    Warmup [BIKE-5m@16]
    Bradford Press 3x5x96.5wbar
    SSB Squats 3x5x175w135
    CS::Roman Situps/Reverse Curls 3x15DPx20 SETS: 14 14 14 :: EZ+22-3x10
    Fat Bench 3x5x167.5w135/Bar
    OVHD 3x95-40s

    I've been feeling very worn out and run down lately. I've been going to bed early and yesterday I needed coffee in the afternoon to keep working. For me that's generally a sign that I'm close to my limit so I've decided to end my cut a week and a half early instead of pushing through and risking getting sick. I lost 3.28lbs trend weight in 5 weeks and two days, not quite as fast as I would like (1lb/wk) but I've had trouble pushing my totals lower while still hitting my macro targets. Definitely feel and look leaner. Recently I've decided that in addition to protein (1.6g/kg) and fat(0.4g/lb) minimums I need to set a fiber minimum (30g) as well. I read some very convincing studies that suggest it has a wide variety of very positive health benefits as well as promoting satiety. Swapping out potatoes for oat bran for weekend breakfasts, shifting my fruit choices and adding more fibrous veggies at dinner hasn't been too hard and seems to have added most of the missing grams. I'm going to be moving my calories up to stable levels and just trying to maintain my current weight through the holidays.

    Thanks, the holidays were my nemesis last year but I figured out a much better way to manage higher calorie periods this year so I'm hopeful.

    Starting to feel better today, I think I headed things off before I went too far. Squats still moving up consistently, bench press still being a jerk.

    I think I may have copied the wrong day into my journal this morning and done the same weights as last time by accident. Not a huge deal. Pullups and bent rows I probably could have gone up, V Pulldowns came out right anyways due to rep progression, deadlifts were fairly grindy so it probably helped a bit.

    What I've been doing on bench hasn't been working that great for progress even though my shoulder is feeling healthy again. I'm pretty sure the issue is insufficient volume but I couldn't find anywhere in my routine to just add more benching. I decided I'm going to try switching to one heavy triple on power day then use three backoff sets to get more volume. This change will likely have some negative impact on my progress with dips, but that's an acceptable tradeoff if it works.
