6/4/10
Squats: 102kg 3x5
OHPress: 46kg 4,3,2
Deadlift: 120kg 1x5
Chinups: 3x5

So so workout today. Squats were actually really hard, esp. the last couple reps. Press was shitty, my form on the last set messed me up before I was spent. That deadlift advice I got last time actually helped a bit. Happy with chinups, that's the first time I've had an even output across sets.

6/7/10
BW: 168.3
Squats: 104kg 5,5,3+2
Bench Press: 70kg 4,4,4
Hang Cleans: 45kg 5x3
Pullups: 4,3,3

I got off balance on my last set of squats. It threw me off so I reracked it, took a step back for a few breaths, then finished the set. One rep better than last time on bench lol. Why not. Felt a lot stronger during cleans this time than last. Wanna get some feedback then I'm thinking of starting to try them from the floor. I started taking creatine over the weekend. Today will be day 3, but hopefully I start seeing some results from that soon. Would love to be able to squeeze out a couple extra reps on weights I'm struggling with.

I hope the creatine helps you. I'm trying to get into using it consistently myself.

@MedMan, Yeah shit's real, those cramps are no joke! I didn't realize how much water you'd actually have to drink, but they do go away once I get properly hydrated.

6/9/10
Squats: 106kg 5,5,4
OHPress: 46kg 5,4,5
Deadlift: 102kg 1x4(or 5)

Damn, missed both squats and OHP by one rep. I think I could've got that one on OHP if my technique would've been on par with the last set, but the squats were just effing hard. Don't know what happened with deadlift, 102kg was a warm up set and I tried both 122.5kg and 110kg but I couldn't lift either. Was originally planning on taking the day off cause I feel like my body's been getting beat up lately, but I ended up getting the day off from work and around noon I got the urge to squat, so I went. I'll see how I feel on Friday.

Squats: 109kg 5,4,3
Bench Press: 70kg 3,3,3

In hindsight I probably should've just skipped the gym. I really didn't have that much time and yeah I don't know what happened on bench. I was going to force myself to do my cleans after but all 6 racks/platforms were full, so I just said fuck it. Thinking about just repeating today on Monday.

6/14/10
BW: 169lbs
Squats: 88.5kg 3x5
Bench Press: 70kg 3x5 PR
Hang Cleans: 45kg 3x3
Pullups: 4,4,3

Took a light day (80%) on squats cause well, that's what intermediates do right plus I wanted to give bench my best shot. Which worked out, I finally finally got this weight. Didn't even give me much trouble really. I didn't do the full 5x3 on hang cleans cause I felt my form wasn't good enough, being honest with myself I think I need to deload a little bit and I might use that opportunity to start pulling from the floor.

Power Cleans: 40kg 5x3
Pullups: 4,4,3

Didn't have time to go to the gym on Friday, then I thought I should shift my schedule so it didn't happen again. I decided I'd cut for a while. Probably not much, a few weeks at most. I haven't really had time to look into it yet but I figure if I can keep lifting the same weights on a deficit I'll be able to add some weight on once I start eating more again. I think I can get back there next time, today I was easing back into it cause of the break and cause I've been eating less. Need to adjust my diet for more protein though.

Deadlift: 125kg 1x5
Chinups: 3x5

Wow, pretty happy with today. I underate yesterday and was pretty tired going in, looking for any excuse to skip it, but I started putting weight on the bar and it was going up. I failed on the last rep of squats and OHP but I'm ok with that, good improvements over last time and I'll get 'em next time. I matched my deadlift PR I think partly because there was an old man lifting 545lbs next to me then a mid-late 20s guy lifting 675! That was some motivation. By 6pm today I'd eaten all my cals except for one meal I usually have before bed. I'm wondering if I'd be able to condense it all and try out intermittent fasting.

6/26/10
Squats: 102kg 3,3,1
Bench: 66kg 3

After this point I said fuck it I'll try again next time. There are a number of factors that could have contributed to my performance today, I'm hoping it's not just the lower amount of food I've been eating. We'll see next time and I'll adjust my food intake accordingly (but seriously 3k cals is too extreme a cut? How much food do I need for maint?)

Squats were hard again, gave up when I wasn't gonna get the set. Bench was easy. I noticed on my cleans sometimes I was definitely pulling with my arms, I'll have to watch for that.

Squats: 97.5kg 3x5
OHPress: 45kg 5,4,3
Deadlift: 102kg 1x4
Chinups: 6,6,5

I'm starting to think this calorie restriction stuff is stupid and/or I'm doing it wrong. Stopped right there on the deadlifts cause my form was already shit. Made progress in chinups, I guess those few pounds I dropped matter? As an lol, I wore some old boxers to the gym today and the ass totally split when I was at the bottom of a squat.

Had to drag myself to the gym today. I went light on squats but it was still harder than it should have been. The third set was much better than the rest though. Was testing out what I could do on bench, was glad I could still hit 70kg for 5. Didn't have time to do more. I'm gonna get back into it for real next week. Using this week to prepare for everything I need (started taking creatine again, gonna look into some weightlifting shoes, figure out some more meals to eat).

Once again, no improvement on anything but the chinups. I'm starting to eat more again, haven't lost any more weight. Ordered some shoes. Can't wait to start getting my strength back.
