High bar:
8 x 20kg = 160kg
5 x 40kg = 200kg
3 x 60kg = 180kg
1 x 80kg
3 x 80kg
3 x 80kg
3 x 80kg
2 x 80kg = 960kg
Total = 1500kg (3307lb)

Front squat:

8 x 20kg = 160kg
4 x 40kg = 160kg
2 x 60kg = 120kg
5 x 67.5kg
5 x 67.5kg
4 x 67.5kg = 945kg
Total = 1385kg (3053lb)

3307 + 3053 = 6360

6360 + 1,991,243 = 1,997,603

3. Liking that milk jug/churn.
Didn't the Mighty Atom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Greenstein) build his initial strength with something like that, every day adding a pebble into it, or some variant around the Milo of Croton myth

I have now trained 6 weeks (just started my 7th week since my last deload) so it's another deload week for me, I feel exhausted and ready for an injury, so I need a light week. Still it was enough to break over the 2,000,000lb mark

20x5, 30x5, 40x5, 60x5, 80x5x5, 70x5, 50x5 = 3,350kg

+7,370= 2,004,973

You'll get what you get... but it's reasonably likely you could be back in the gym Thursday. Good luck!

Actually I changed my mind at the last minute and didn't take it.

High bar pause squats
+11,819 = 2,268,034

26. Perhaps you should go back and get the vax, just to avoid the BS that can happen if you don't have it
Monday evening I twisted round and reached over to pickup something in an awkward way and had a very sharp pain in back (lower thoracic) this morning did 1x5 working set SQ not 5x5 as it felt like it would stir it up, did 1 rep of my OHP at working weight - I could feel it was trouble so bailed on that too, did no pullups DL or other stuff
Maybe light cardio only until Monday now, sorry!

Only +4,840lbs today = 2,272,874
