    mentally, yes. of course the fact that I am still 40 pounds behind my heaviest bench also makes these heavier weights easier to get under lol.

    I used to bench 315 for 5 reps with no bands. Trying to get back there!

    Welcome to the jungle(*cue Guns N' Roses)

    Definitely start a journal. Once you decide between those two programs you are looking at, you can usually get a pretty decent amount of advice from this section as well as some motivation and external accountability.

    SST Wave 3 Week 1
    Deadlift Day

    Deadlifts
    Warm-up
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3

    Working Sets
    390x3
    440x3
    490x1
    490x3

    WG Pullups
    BWx6, 5, 5, 5

    BB Rows
    135x8
    185x5, 5, 5

    Today was meh. I am not sure what is wrong with my deadlifts lately but I am just not motivated to do them. Today my grip was the issue.
    On the 390x3 it was technically 4 reps. My grip broke on the second rep at lock out, so switched to mixed grip and did 2 more reps. On the 440x3 set it was hook grip, no issues.
    On the 490x1 set I was using hook grip and it broke on the second rep before I even got past my knees I have NEVER had hook grip break before. I have had it rip skin off my thumbs lol but never break. So, for the first time in years I used straps on deadlifts without having an injury.

    The reason all this is a surprise is my max deadlift is 585 but for this program I used 550 as my working max. This was so I could put the focus on squats because they are the weakest lift. So for me to be having any trouble with these numbers is not so good

    Could've been just a mental thing today, I've only had hook break once and that weight was too heavy. I was all jacked up on og mesomorph or something lol.

    You know the drill, eat and rest and get back at it

    Will deffo start a journal, probably on monday, or sunday if it is just setting up and monday starting with an official plan.
    I might do vikings gladiator program. I wanna just focus on getting my strength up while I try to lose fat/weight. I might pick gladiator cause it has like the gslp style (is more idiotproof which I might need to begin with) and also like the idea of being able to rdl and dl in the same week also 3x squats/rows/bench kinda like that) also the volume is not as big as bare bones (maybe the 6, 7, 8 reps + amrap but imo that might be enough for me)

    Anyways apologies for hijacking your thread. On topic

    Damn 222+/- kg on DLs? 265kg as your max damn man, im jealous haha. I must imagine you must feel bummed tho if you lose your grip on 490. I think I am gonna struggle alot on that but my weight will be like 375% lower then your weight haha (im bad at maths but im gonna start with 60kg/132lbs DLs so way different then yours)

    But who knows man, maybe your forearms/grip had a weak day. I got a feeling you are gonna blast it next workout!

    Not sure what was up. I went in feeling strong as hell, left feeling like I got owned by 490 a little bit It could have been any number of things. As you say, eat, rest, and get back to it.

    I am not familiar with the programs that are going right now. I am currently following another journal where the man is using Fierce 5 and it seems like he is making solid progress so far. IMO, the plan you outlined in this post sounds like a good way to start getting strength up. And everybody starts with 60kg(or 135 pounds in Murica cause 45 pound plates) on deadlifts, but I do not know any serious lifters that stay there for long. Depending on your program and goals(and food) you will be pulling 315 pounds for reps probably in a short time. After that 405 and 495 are usually not far off....

    585 on the other hand.... that one is about 300 pounds heavier than 495

    lmao there are just those weird differences. First time I pulled 495 it went up so easy and fast I almost fell backwards. Put a couple of 2.5s on there just so I could say I could pull a quarter ton, and didnt even get the bar to pretend like it was gonna come off the ground...

    Them 2.5s sometimes forget they have a decimal in there

    Got in, got a lot of stuff done and got out. Got to go back to work tomorrow so I finished this week off strong, in my opinion. I really wanted to get 205 for a double today but it wasn't happening. It is hard to believe that at one point I could press 205 for an easy 5 reps. Anyway, I got videos of some of these lifts(obviously the heaviest ones ) and I think on my next run with this program I am going to add a press day that has its own goal numbers.

    Weighed in yesterday at 199 pounds

    I just randomly stepped on the bathroom scale after a shower, and that one put me at 198. So I stepped on the one I normally use and it still put me under 200.... first time in probably 10 years i weighed under 200

    lol yeah I never really liked associating "speed" and "deadlifts" but they are supposed to help with power off the ground and I tend to do them with weight that is normally a warm or easy side of working weight. My goal for weight is not really to lose or gain any. Just trying to get stronger and somewhat maintain bodyweight. As long as I stay between 195 and 210 I am good with everything.
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Yeah it can be brutal, but what doesnt kill you sure can feel like it anyway One day I will get around to getting in my attic and running some duct work to my gym, but really I think I just enjoy the abuse.

    Benchpress stuff from Tuesday:

    SST Wave 3 Week 2
    Deadlift Day

    Deadlift
    Warm-ups
    135x5
    225x5
    315x5

    Working Sets
    360x5
    415x5
    465x5

    Paused Squats
    135x3
    185x3
    225x3, 3
    270x3, 3, 3

    Romanian Deadlifts
    135x5
    185x5, 5
    225x5, 5

    Goodmornings
    95x10
    115x8, 8, 8

    BB Shrugs
    135x8

    I was not mentally prepared for this one. I am tired, sore as fuk, and it is still hotter than the devil's taint in my garage. But I shut my whiny ass up and got to pulling. I actually managed to impress myself The deadlifts were more effort than I wanted to have to put in for a top set of 465x5 but they were not nearly as bad as I feared going into it. That chitty 490x3 set last week got the confidence down. The work today has restored my faith in my pulls.
    Paused squats are a nice way to slow time down.
    I hate RDLs and always have. I never feel these in the hamstrings. Going to permanently leave these out from now on.
    Goodmornings were light and they definitely hit the hamstrings and glutes.
    I will make up shrugs tomorrow. I just didnt have anything left in the tank for them today.

    Stole an idea from Dopamine72's journal and did more sets on presses. Also, kept the rest periods very short, just long enough to load the next weight increment and get back under it. The rest of the work was pretty good. Also kept the rest period between sets shorter on these.

    Next week I am going camping with the family so I will get squat day and maybe bench day done before I go and the deads will have to wait until Sunday or the following Monday. The week after that is the last active recovery week before I ramp up to what I hope will be a new squat and bench max. I doubt I will get a new deadlift max since I set the training max for this run fairly low to focus on squats

    Campground. Only time I do wilderness style camping is for fishing trips. And no kids for that one. Usually just me and the wife
