Squats: 97.5kg 3x5
OHPress: 43kg 3x5
Deadlift: 116kg 1x5

Was tired and sore as fuck going in today, so good workout considering. I did bump up my calories, I'm a pound heavier than I was on Monday. Feels a lot better than wondering if I've ate enough all the time. Squats were easier today despite being heavier. Glad I got that press weight cause I didn't deload any more than I was. Was gonna go a little bit lighter on DL but I was feeling good so I went for that.

Squats: 100kg 3x5
Bench Press: 66kg 5,4,4
Hang Cleans: 35kg 5,4,3,3

Gained another pound back, but squats did not get any easier. Actually the second set wasn't too bad. Damn bench press. I think I could've got the last set but I didn't go for it cause I had no spotter. Was gonna do 3x5 on hang cleans, but that was a bit much so I shifted to sets of 3. Think I'll probably increase the weight next time.

Another brief but intense workout. Squats actually got easier again lol. Deadlift went pretty smooth too. Just gonna have to give that OHP another try.

Squats: 104kg 3x5 PR
Bench Press: 66kg 3x5
Hang Cleans: 40kg 4x3

Today was technically a PR on squats. I've gone heavier, but I didn't get the full 3x5 last time at this weight. Bench press went a lot better this time. Progress is slow there, but I'll take it. Stopped one set short on hang cleans cause my outside fingers started to hurt. I honestly can't tell if I'm fully extending, sadly I need to get someone else to take a look at it again. Not even sure if I could tell if I videod myself, probably worth a try though.

Same deal as last time for squats. I don't think my last rep was the prettiest, but probably the definition of grinding it out. Close but not quite on OHP. May or may not just bump it up next time. Don't know what was up with deadlift. Even the warmup sets felt heavy.

Man, I thought I was going to get the squats after the first set, but I couldn't get the bar set right on my back again. Felt like my arms were holding up too much of the weight. Bench sucked, I was using a fat bar which might not have helped. Just gonna eat my heart out and come back on Wednesday.

OHPress: 45kg 3x5 PR
Deadlift: 120kg 1x5
Pullups: 3x1,3,2

I lied, I didn't eat as much as I planned on. Got the bar on my back much more solid today though, really only disappointed with the 3rd set. OHP: Woo, feels good to finally get another PR on this. Deadlift went smooth, finally getting back into the 'oh fuck this is heavy' feeling. Couldn't even manage more than one pullup at a time in the first set lol, it's true if you don't use it you lose it.

Wicked numbers! 120 kg is getting into the "Damn, I'm impressed" range. Congrats on the OHP, it's the bane of my existence. Good luck getting the squat, 109 kg is intense.

How long has it been since you did pullups?

Not that long, about a month. I was just starting to make progress though. I'm hoping I get the squats too, I don't wanna have to deload again. Now that you've posted, maybe I will. Worked last time, haha.

Nice work all round man, especially on squats :) Overhead press is awesome. With pullups it's prob a combination of what you think coupled with the heavy lifts before it. I was always pathetic at doing them just after deadlifts.

Well I ate good these last two days but still missed squats. Honestly I think I would've faired better if I'd just got some espresso beforehand. Low energy starting then I just couldn't force that last set. I think I'm going to add in some ab work per the suggestion of this guy at the gym, because I tend to lean over when the weight gets too heavy. Got bench press though. Used another bar, may have made the difference. Next time will be PR territory. And Chewy, yeah I think that's why I was reluctant to start doing pullups again. Maybe I should switch to doing chinups on DL days.

I was gonna go for 109 on squats again if I was feeling up to it, but no, I was not. Wasn't feeling dominant on OHP or deadlift either. I did squeak out 4 reps on deadlift, but my form wasn't the greatest. This trainer guy was watching so I asked him for advice, he explained it in a way that made more sense than my gym buddy (go figure). I'm gonna have to fuck around with that next time, see how it feels. Also, my weight today doesn't show it but I finally moved past 166lbs over the weekend.

I've been eating consistently. My weight's going up. I get enough sleep. So why doesn't it feel like I'm getting stronger? I'm gonna stick at it a little longer, but if nothing changes I may just have to accept I've plateaued and move on to something else.
