Press
45 5
55 5
65 5/5/5

Dead
45 5

Supinated Chins
BW 7/4/3
2-2.5 min rest between sets, ill probably take at least 3 next time


Squats were nice and easy, form was good
Presses: Right arm definitely pushed up faster than left, form okay otherwise but could be greatly improved
Deads felt nice and easy. Probably add 20 next time.
Held off on powercleaning until next workout since I have no coach so I can read through the book some more

Squat
45 5
65 5
115 4
135 5/5/5

Bench
45 5
65 5
85 5/5/5

Power Cleans (!)
45 5
65 3/3/3/3/3

Abdominal/Oblique

Squats were fine, bench was fine. Got some rhythm eventually on the PC's , but using the really small plates is a pain. Overall weights didn't feel heavy but we're getting there.

10/31

Squat
Warmup
145 5/5/5

Press
Warmup
70 5/5/5

Deadlift
Warmup
155 5

Chins
7/4/3.5 stalled w/ elbow at 90 deg.

Forearms

Weight was more challenging but no problems

Edit:
Upon further review I will probably add one-two sets of weighted decline situps after every day and start alternating dips and pullups and not worry about extra forearm iso work for a long while

Really weird workout today...

Squat
155 5/5/5

Bench
95 5/5/5

Power Clean
75 3/3/3/3/3

Decline flatboard situps
35 lb weight held over (not behind) head
8/8

Machine twist oblique thing
100 8/8 both sides

Machine weighted push crunch thing
125 a lot

Dips (narrow)
-20 6
bw 3

thinking i should spend less time on 'abs'
need to use wide grip for dips and do them before abs
this one really weird guy took the bar from the bench press and was using it for some good mornings or something but he was only bending forward like 6 inches. then he started doing like 1/8 squats with it, so i had to wait for him to put it back. then while i was benching, he started using the only rack you can do cleans in and started doing more 1/8 squats with the empty bar. so i had to wait again. wtf?
actual weightlifting went well though.

Was pretty exhausted after deadlifts so happy to get this many done

Deadlifts were really hard and my dad said he saw some slight rounding on the last one (other ones were good and my back feels fine), so ill be careful with those next time
no other problems. Ill move chins to the other day so I only have smaller exercises after deadlifts.
