Notes:
Bench seems to have stalled pretty hard, went backwards. was set to do 6 sets of 5s with 85kg, but i would have failed it when the first set felt so hard, stopped at 3 reps. Will be setting up the home gym back up soon.

BS 6x5x110
Jumps 5x3

Notes:
Huge struggle with squats. what is depressing is during my last cycle i managed 5x5x107.5kg. That was sans knee sleeves and now im using knee sleeves to make hard work of 6 sets of 5 with pretty much the same weight. i could argue that im doing it while carb depleted and while not having had any carbs the whole day before the workout etc etc (only have 30g gatorade with the peri-workout shake) but im not really convinced. shit should be a lot easier smh. Next squat sesh i'll carb up though, no other way to progress to 6x6x110. Then i need to swap over to home gym bc of covid-19.

is australia a month behind the rest of the world? or are you for some reason logging with a month-long lag?  :trollface:

(you're writing dates with "2" in the months position)

BS 2x115, 2x112.5, 4x2x110

Notes:
A week since i trained, got pretty weak. Weird squatting without a mirror, you get used to it and it's really hard to do it without. if i train earlier in the day i can kind of catch a reflection off the glass door but not at night like tonights squats. Thanks coges for encouraging me to setup again, turned out pretty good in the end, not as bad as i imagined it..

Daily Activity:

BS 2x100
OHP 6x50, 0Fx57.5
Chinup 5xBW, Pushups 8xBW

Notes:
I miss two consecutive workouts and my body decides it doesnt need to remember how to recover from squats anymore. Squats are the biggest fools gold ever. Was hit with pretty decent doms during warmups and decided to leave it before i hurt myself. starting over from scratch again i spose.

Guys about home gym training, im the only dipshit in my gym and I dont do any rackpulls or deadlifts so my bar isn't getting beaten up as badly as in the public gym where there are ppl dropping bars doing rackpulls onto pins (ive seen it, you've seen it, it happens). dipshits dropping deadlifts onto plates (ive seen it) etc. this isn't good for the bar. but my home bar feels sooo good on my back .. i wonder if it's because it's straight and undamaged? if i was able to take my bar into a normal gym, i'd be able to squat better automatically just b/c it's straight. it's day and night. ofc at home i have to deal with a sloping floor (because of water flow in case of rain etc), squatting on uneven pavers etc. im in half a mind to rip it all up and concrete it with zero elevation. that woudl be my dream gym floor.

BP 6x50, 6x70, 2x80, 1x85, 6x75

Notes:
predictably, im tempted by the daily training thing again .. mostly b/c ive detrained and im somewhat impatient to get back to where i was before gym closed down. i must say the straight bar hypothesis seems to be taking on greater evidence, it's even more noticeable on bench press. ok i need to fix the floor and i think if i can do that i'll have a somewhat ideal gym experience as i can expect. That's kind of exciting.
Re daily training - how do i lay out daily workouts?
Day 1: Lower body focus & upper maintenance / warmup   (both bench & ohp)
Day 2: Lower body maintenance / warmup & upper focus (alternate between ohp and bench)

this way im squatting, benching and pressing every day. how to fit in cardio im not really sure, but it will prob go on the lower body focus day.

haaa that initial phase in daily squatting where the bar starts to feel super heavy even when it isnt. eventually you'll push thru the wall but today wasn't it. got a run in .. i like daily training if it's going to be short and sweet.
