    Thanks man, no vid but this was only tying an old PR

    I’m wondering if the machine tricep extension is helping. I’ve only used it twice and it seems like not even a month ago I failed 195
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8, 195x5
    Deadlift: 405x13 (conv tap'n'go with straps)

    Yeah, I think I've underappreciated the value of machines for localized weak point training. It was similar for me and squats with the hip flexor machines. I had a real bottleneck with the form and then it was like once I started doing those machines with some seriousness and regularity, my squat felt instantly improved in a way just squatting likely wouldn't have efficiently done. Still it's not a strong lift for me, but it made a notable difference.

    I'll have to try 205 soon and see if I can match you there. That 185 I got last week was difficult but still relatively smooth. Maybe I can get 205 soon, even if it's with an ugly grind.

    They remastered one of my favorite games as a kid and redid the same score. It's epic and awesome:

    Bench: 320
    Squat: 405
    Deadlift: 505

    Saw SuffolkPunch mention a split in another thread that looked interesting, so I'm going to give it a try.

    --

    Treadmill:
    1.5 miles at 6mph

    Deadlift:
    135 x 8, 225 x 5, 315 x 4, 365 x 3, 405 x 2, 455 x 1 @9 probably

    Bench (T&G):
    225 x 16 after warmup

    EDIT: Also alternated every bench warmup set with a pullup double, which felt super clean and easy. I'll go for a PR AMRAP of them on Friday I think.

    Felt strange running in skate shoes (for the deadlifting), and I could tell that there was some detraining on the DL. Felt manageable but somewhat less smooth and natural.

    30 Degree Incline Press:
    175 pounds x 1 rep
    135 pounds - 2 sets x 3 reps

    Front Squat:
    175 pounds x 1 rep
    195 pounds x Fail
    145 pounds - 2 sets x 3 reps

    Rough way to start out the new program. Had a major grinder on Incline. It tied a PR, and my shoulders were already fatigued because of some house upkeep I did over the weekend.
    On the front squats it's almost entirely about staying in a good position throughout. In the video you'll see that I got quite a bit out of position on the 175 rep and still powered through. Wasn't able to do the same with 195. I was using flat shoes in my warmups and then switched to heels. I'm thinking I'll stick with the flat shoes next time around because that felt better - wasn't getting pitched forward so much.

    Floor Press
    195 pounds x 1 rep [PR]
    155 pounds - 3 sets x 3 reps

    12 Inch Box Squat
    255 pounds x 1 rep [PR]
    205 pounds x 3 reps

    Also did some Bi's and Tri's.

    Floor Press was strong today. Set a 10 pound PR. It's been quite a long time since I've tried to max out, but this still obviously shows really good progress.
    Squats were slightly awkward, but not too bad considering how little I've done them this year. This was only a PR because I've never maxed out on it before. Almost failed on the backoff work... I'm at least starting to get a better handle on what I need to change in my squat, and making some small improvements. I still seem some obvious issues in the video below. It's a work in progress...

    Yesterday was feeling really banged up so just did a couple sets of pull-ups. Even just moving the empty bar out of the rack my back and arms were feeling it lol

    Today:
    365x1 squat, then 315x2 with long pause

    Bench
    265x1
    245x3

    Feel like I’m a little overreached maybe. When I did the 265 bench it was hard and one arm was struggling to lock out. The squats felt hard too
    Best lifts:
    Bench press: 315x4, 345x1
    Squat: 465x1
    Strict press: 185x8, 195x5
    Deadlift: 405x13 (conv tap'n'go with straps)

    Attempted a 190 OHP twice and got each just over my head. Took 5 pounds off then got 185 again since the other day. It was a little harder than last time, but still relatively clean I would say. (Not sure how I recovered after my left hand began to lower.) After that I attempted a 225 push press, but that wasn't going to happen by a long shot lol.

    Cambered Bar Larsen Press
    170 pounds x 1 rep [PR]
    125 pounds - 2 sets x 3 reps

    Sumo Deadlift
    385 pounds x 3 reps [PR]

    Never maxed out with the cambered bar before. I was expecting it to feel pretty unstable, but it really didn't.
    The sumo triple was a 20 pound PR. I'm expecting to be hitting a lot of PR's over the next couple of weeks, just because I'm either maxing on newer lifts, or on lifts that I've not maxed out in a while. The deadlift was interesting today... Typically in the past I've struggled to get into a proper setup position for singles, and when doing reps I'd get into a better position as I went along. It was exactly the opposite today. I've gotten pretty good at setting up for singles (which is obviously good). My starting position got clearly worse with each rep today though. It was mostly just a lack of patience. Hopefully I'll remember to slow down a bit next time I go for a double or triple.
