^^^^ thanks, small victories.

1/2/17 Monday BW=171.2

squat 5x5x210
ohp 5x5x75
deadlift 1x10x245

Feeling good on my lifts. I will keep working my hip mobility daily.
Hitting deadlifts for only one set every other workout makes them feel awesome.

1/4/17 Wednesday BW=?
b-ball 1.0 hour

1/5/17 Thursday BW=172.4
squat 5x5x215
bench 5x5x200
row 5x5x115

1/6/17 Friday BW=?
b-ball 1.0 hour

1/7/17 Saturday BW=172.0
squat 5x5x220
ohp 5x5x80
deadlift 1x10x250

1/9/17 Monday BW=?
b-ball 1.0 hour

1/10/17 Tuesday BW=172.4
squat 5x5x225
bench 4x5x205, 3x205
row 5x5x120

My volume is going up and I am feeling more locked in. 205 was doable on the bench until the last set, then I start remembering what its like to try to shimmy out from under a bar stuck on my chest. Might of got 4 but no way 5. It feels good to still be plugging along with no hint of injury, gives me motivation to get more serious.

you bench with no safeties? :o

it's funny, i'm so 'defensive' (or wimpy), i could never do that.

i've never benched with safeties, although if i'm going heavy for max reps i'll get someone to spot. if you work out at home that's obviously a bit more difficult. iirc loopie's kids are a bit young to be helping him with 205!
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

^^^^ Yeah they are not helping. It has only happened twice, and IIRC you lay the bar on your chest and push up on one side until it hits the ground. Then simply shimmy out, no pride needed.

1/12/17 Thursday BW=172.8

squat 1x245, 5x5x230
ohp 5x5x85
deadlift 1x10x255

I will play some ball tomorrow, my legs should be getting back under me by now.

b-ball 1.0 hour

1/14/17 Saturday BW=171.2

squat 5x5x235
bench 5x5x205
row 5x5x125

Watched the seahawks get destroyed by ATL, Just wish Devin Hester could have run one all the way back. That would have made my day.
Got my 205 with out issue today, but 5x5 will get challenging at 210 and above. Squats still are feeling locked.

Saw a video of me playing with the kids on the trampoline from 2013 @ 160lbs. I looked jacked! fast forward to 2017 and I don't. The extra 11 lbs are probably pure fat. Wake up call, need to improve diet.

Don't stress about it too much. The drop seems gigantic when you are the one striving to get back, but it is not that bad really if you look at it 'objectively', give it one more week and you'll be back where you stopped.

squat 2x185, 1x225, 1x245, 5x5x235
ohp 5x5x95
deadlift 1x5x265

squat 2x185, 1x225, 1x245, 5x5x240
bench press 3x5x195, 2x3x195
row 5x5x105

Got my squat back to where I was mid January and added 5 pounds, still struggling with bench press, my right shoulder was stiff and didn't want to warm up. Might be a few more weeks before I can get 5x5x205. No basketball this week thus far and I am ok with it.

squat 5x5x245
ohp 5x5x100
deadlift 3x185, 3x235, 1x255, 0x270

b-ball 1.0 hour


2/11/17 Saturday BW=169.6

squat 5x1x250
bench press 5x5x195
barbell row 5x5x110

This week was pretty good, got 5x5x245 pretty easy. My mind was off that day but my body pulled through. Deadlift has suffered, I was looking to pull 5 reps at 270 and could not even budge it. My body was still wreck on saturday, so 250 on squat was not happening. My right arm is still not feeling the bench press but I was able to get 5x5x195.

2/15/17 Wednesday BW=170.2

b-ball 1.0 hour

Felling great last night, motivation was low but got myself to the squat rack. Went from 5 today reps at 250 to 20 total reps. I was a little gassed to get the full 25, but it felt like major progress since Saturday. Deadlift has not been locked in either the last few weeks, but it clicked back in yesterday. Played ball less then 8 hours after work out and my legs felt boss. I need more of this in my life.
