Squat form felt a bit off...I feel like I'm never getting it...
Tried leg extensions using the piece that came with the bench...felt pretty good.

12/10/12

BP: 97.2 x 8, 7, 7
Rows: 102.2 x 6, 6, 5
OHP: 52.4 x 12 x 2
Chins: 6, 5
Curls: 52.4 x 12

BP took everything I had. Strict row rep count - did an extra rep each set that didn't touch chest. OHP was so hard. My right elbow still feels aggravated on a lot of these moves. I worked out fully clothed with my sneakers on so my chins were down a rep from last time but most likely at a heavier weight. Curls stayed the same and were tough.

OHP: 57.4 x 12, 10

Grinding out reps on BP...all sets likely to failure.
Rows were super strict continuous reps.
Got tired after BP - digestion not doing well lately, only ate a smoothie today (~500 cals).

12/26/12

Squats: 111 x 8, 7, 5
SLDL: 139.8 x 8 x 3
Leg Extensions: 93.6 x 12 x 2

Feeling shitty about squats...I can't find my form and I never feel like I'm progressing much...I'm thinking of doing squats way more often to try to finally get it. Felt so fatigued after leg extensions so I skipped calves and abs.

12/28/12

BP: 102.2 x 6 x 3
Rows: 102.2 x 7, 7, 6
OHP: 57.4 x 11, 10
Chins: 7, 6
Curls: 57.4 x 10

I am just about hitting failure on a lot of these sets. I lost a rep on some of the sets from last workout. I'll stick with these weights for a couple more sessions and then probably deload to build back up.

How long do you normally deload for? Do you do it regularly?
Does do your head in but I think it's really beneficial, and probably essential if I'm honest. Hope you had a great New Year MF.
