Re: Jack's Training Log

6/25 Bench 205x3x5 Row 205x3x5 Squat 315x3x5 Since 5/17 I have been working in four 3 mile trail runs every week, but the lifting has been spotty.

6/16

Bench 202.5x3x5
Row 202.5x3x5

Low volume for now, this is all I can fit in currently with the newborn. I'll drop the extra volume work from this routine but stick with a lift a day. I will back off this week so I don't end up in DOMS hell.

Bench 207.5x3x5

My first born child was born on 5/17 in the wee hours of the morning and I haven't lifted since. Targeting next week to try getting back into the swing. Lack of sleep and general life disruption is to blame, but next week it's back to the grind.

The Belt

@jackthestrat: Do you notice any difference in your "squat groove" coming up out of the hole when you squat with and without a belt at lower weights?

The Belt

So, here's something I figured I would tee up, since my last thread got so many outstanding responses. What are people's thoughts on belts? I personally do not currently squat or deadlift with a belt. I have done so in the past for squat only, but I found that when the weight got heavy, I would inva...
