    Thursday night, finished up Week 29, or "Average to Savage" Week 1. Still calling it a deload, although the exercises are different enough from what I'm used to that I know they're having an effect. Did deadlifts first last night, usually I do them last, before accessories. Lighter weights, but again, more sets. I used my grips, although I usually don't at that weight, doing multiple sets like that would have had an effect on my hands!

    The paused squats felt great. It's been too long since I did them. I think starting them at a light weight really helped. I held them for 3-4 seconds and then tried to stand as explosively as possible. The close grip bench press was hard to get used to, but by the end I was throwing them up pretty quickly. Never did quite get used to the seated overhead press. Several times I felt like I was on the verge of falling over backwards. I'm sure that's exactly why I should be doing them!

    Thursday, July 9

    Deadlift:
    228 lbs, 7 sets, 5 reps each.

    Close Grip Bench:
    96 lbs, 7 sets, 7 reps each

    Paused Squat:
    108 lbs, 6 sets, 7 reps each.

    Seated OHP:
    60 lbs, 7 sets, 7 reps each


    Accessories:
    Pullups, +45 lbs, 6 + 6 + 6
    Chinups, +45 lbs, 6 + 6

    Pushups w/grip handles, toes raised 18.5": 45


    So I got in one extra pullup rep, which was nice. Not so nice was my total collapse on pushups. Not sure why that happened. I was just suddenly beat. Might have been non-gym related. We'll see what Sunday offers: Weights increase, reps go down.
    I'm out, standing in my field.

    64 and still a newbie.

    Great looking sessions going on in here Dave. I like the looks of that program. As you mentioned, it must be nice to not have to load plates all the time. Sometimes I superset 3 lifts at once and as I pace endlessly around my garage loading plates between sets I'm usually struck by the thought, "is this actually taking more time? It was meant to save time...." Wide stance squats would be an interesting variation. My knees don't like squat variations so much. I would think the thighs would get a big workout from doing that one. Keep up the great work!

    Good way to start...giving yourself a lot of room for progress...3PPS on squats would be great. I'll be happy if I can get 250. If I get there I'll reassess
