    Didn't start working out till past 1AM. Was really stressed out all day, felt exhausted but still lifted. Kept it really short as a result

    Squat-
    up to 425x1

    Deadlift-
    up to 425x1 (traps-free PR) (was also easy, certainly easier than the squat)

    I swear there's noticeable hypertrophy on my forearms from within the past month (srs). There's an extra lump or two of muscle that wasn't there before
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10

    I think I was right about my forearms, I measured them cold and without bending the wrists, right at 14 inches, not too bad. My upper arms were 17.5, but I know I've measured them at 18 after a workout

    Squat-
    up to 430x1
    315x3
    325x3
    335x3
    345x3

    Bench-
    up to 325x1
    245x5
    265x5

    Dead hangs (also did some earlier in the day)

    ---


    The dead hangs are supposed to be good for the shoulders which is why I did them. If I can't get my shoulder feeling better, I'll never get my bench moving again

    Also ate an entire pizza before lifting and I think that interfered with my squats. I felt like I couldn't really squeeze my abs during the lift or else it would make me throw up in my mouth
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10

    Last night I did box squats, presses, and some dead hangs/wrist curls

    I've decided this kind of training isn't right for me anymore. Not cause I can't recover from it, or that I think it doesn't work. I just can't devote this kind of time to lifting.

    I'm gonna take a short break and decide on a 3 or 4 day program like 5/3/1 to do. I got a feeling I've got a ton of "latent" gains that will show soon on a program like this.
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10

    first texas method intensity day

    actually really happy about today, cause bench/squat were realllly hard, but deadlifts were really easy

    Bench-
    295x5 (almost failed)

    Squat-
    395x5 (almost failed)

    Deadlift-
    405x5 (no straps, dead stop, EASY)

    Curls-
    115x8

    I really like this day, cause it proves that my deadlift is still stronger than my squat which is something I sometimes wonder about.
    I washed my hands really good before to make sure they weren't oily/slippery. And brushed my bar knurl. Grip was rock solid and the bar didnt move a millimeter in my hands

    Press-
    185x5

    Squat-
    400x5

    Deadlift-
    410x4.......or 5

    I did the first 4 bare handed. My right handed was rock solid, but my left hand was nearly failing on the 3rd rep. The set felt so easy in everything BUT my left hand
    Waited 30s or so then tried the fifth rep, couldn't get it. Put on straps then got the 5th rep

    I washed my hands before the set to get any oil off, but maybe there was some oil/grease on the bar where my left hand was. I don't use chalk either

    Bicep curl-
    120x8

    Seems like you have been doing a lot of 5s lately. Even 5x5 it seems. 5x5 is one of the most time tested successful training programs. Your squat and deadlift got stronger too

    Yeah, 5x5s can do a lot but they are freaking hard when they are maximal effort and I've never been able to do them for a sustained period of time because of how hard of a workout it is

    I think good mornings have been making a huge difference to my deadlift, my theory is that my hamstrings have been underdeveloped because of how my squat form is. Most people lean more forward than I do which engages the hams more. Dedicated hamstring work seems to be working.

    Just gotta get my damn grip up. Or maybe I should get chalk again



    -----------------

    Today was a pretty bad workout. Yesterday for some strange reason I played tennis, and running around like that is something I am not used to. Perhaps it negatively affected performance. I've also been really stressed out the past week or two though the stress is going away and there were a few days in the near past I didn't eat enough and I can see it on the scale, I'm a few pounds lighter which isn't good

    Bench-
    280x5
    280x5
    280x5
    280x5
    280x4 - I gave the 5th a really good fight but lost it. The first few sets felt so easy but the difficulty ramped up fast. I think my upper back lost tightness

    Squat-
    375x5
    375x5
    375x1 - felt myself leaning forward to make these easier and cut myself off. The first two sets were ridiculously hard

    GM-
    235x5
    235x5
    235x5
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1

    Missed last workout, think I'm going to miss the next one and maybe even the next one after that.

    I haven't been sick but somethings been stressing me out so much I may as well be. Haven't been eating enough. I need to reduce stressors and take it easy for a little bit

    Do cardio, calisthenics, high rep aerobic stuff, walking lunges, kettlebell stuff... Some exercise is better than none, esp. when stressed.

    I didn't want to admit it, but you're right

    Today I did curls, presses, goodmornings, pullups and dead hangs on a "circuit" (no rest) with light weight

    I think it did make me feel better

    I'll do some more random workouts like this till I feel ready to go back to real training

    Lifted again, harder workout than last time but still pretty easy

    Press-
    up to 155x8

    Good mornings-
    up to 155x6

    Deadlift-
    up to 405

    ---------
    Starting to feel a lot better, but I think the cumulative stress over the past couple weeks has left me a bit weaker but I should start getting back up there
    The 155x8 press was really hard

    Bodyweight yesterday was 198lbs, need to start eating again. My appetite just disappeared, even if my stomach is growling eating food just sucks. It's hard to explain but its like everything tastes really bad
    Yesterday for dinner I was at a place and ordered a really good hamburger which I should have liked, but I had to fight my gag reflex to eat it

    Another thing is that I need to tighten my belt by another hole cause I've lost a little weight (198 from like 208)

    Maybe its a good thing if the weight is coming from my weight (?) but there's something a little disturbing about losing weight when I'm not intending to. It feels like I'm wasting away

    Last night:

    Bench-
    up to 275x6

    Power shrugs-
    up to 405x8

    Good mornings-
    2 sets of 225x5


    About exercise selection
    -----
    I think I'm going to do shrugs again. Coincidence that I was doing them as my bench went up in the past, and I plateaued hard when I stopped them? I think a big part of my bench is being able to keep my shoulders tight and they usually come loose after a couple reps now

    And no more box squats, they were hurting my knees

    Good mornings seemed to have added noticeable hamstring hypertrophy

    And I need chalk for deadlifts
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10

    Sort of active recovery....really just wanted to try this

    Glute/hamstring hyperextension*
    3 total sets, did a few holding a 25lb plate. Felt my back getting a pump, felt a bit in my hamstrings but mostly back

    Dead hang from pullup bar

    * Done by propping by bench up on blocks outside of my rack, and putting my ankles under the safety rails on the rack
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8
    Deadlift: 405x10
