Cycle progress is here: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8047&start=105#p92620

This is the 4th week of the progression I've been trying, with a good result for squat. Next week I'm travelling so I've got a forced deload falling naturally at the end of the cycle.

Squat
195: 3
225: 3
255: 3
285: 3 Rep PR
305: 1

Backoff
235: 1 STOPPED

The 235 felt so heavy I just did one and called it a day. With a Rep PR I was good to quit.

Bulgarians
Right leg only, 50#, two sets of 8

Squat
195: 3
225: 3
255: 3
285: 3
305: 1

Exact repeat of two weeks ago, since I'm returning from jet lag

Deadlift with Bands
135 / 5
185 / 4
225 / 2, 2, 2
275 / 2, 2

These were very hard to get locked out.

Farmers Walks
120 each hand

6 half laps, about 30 yards each

Jeremy noticed I look down when I do these and he corrected that, told me to gaze straight ahead, made a big difference.

Worst workout I ever seen.

Squatted 255 for 1 and was afraid I might not make it. Maybe it's been all of that travel, poor sleep, restaurant food and a max deadlift attempt on Saturday?

Did not know you could get this fried doing OHP.

Fingers shaking, can barely type. Legs were shaking pretty badly on the last two reps of the top set. Shoulders on fire for a couple of minutes afterward.

But it was worth it for two rep PR's in one day:

135x6 beating 135x5 6 weeks ago
140x4 beating 140x3 4 weeks ago

Caffeine is the devil. Well, in the morning its an angel, after noon it is the devil.

I don't really journal here anymore, but thought I'd record the bench program I'm trying.

Current 1RM: 225 2/21/13

It's been 3 months and I'm basically in the same place, so I'm trying this program.

Bench
200/3,3,3,3,3

Incline
Supposed to do 5x5

135/5 seemed way too easy, so:
155/3 (fail), somebody had to jump over and get the bar off me, so back down to:
135/5 still way too easy, so back up to
145/5
150/5,3

Computer programmers will recognize this as a binary search.

Close Grip Bench
supposed to be 5x5, but not knowing my weight we got this:

135/5
145/5,5
155/5,3

DB Bench (Flared Elbows)
45/5,5,5,5,5
