16/7
day 29

squat
70kg
bench
42.5
row
35kg

i don't know whats changed lately with my squats but they're so incredibly strong recently, finally back on the bench, the programme said to dial it back so i did, but was still solid lifts and only a slight discomfort in my shoulder and I've dialled it back on the rows to concentrate on form, I'm keeping my torso parallel to the floor and only counting a rep if the bar comes in contact with my body. on the whole I'm really happy with today.

squats are getting tough, didn't feel strong at all on the presses today, and reads were awful, couldn't even get rep 1, my inner thighs were too weak from the squats, does anyone know why this is?

Sounds like you could be a little overtrained.

Take an extra rest day or two, keep your water intake up and increase your daily calories a little and see if that helps.

day 31

squats
75kg
bench
45kg
row
37.5 kg

everything today felt really solid, inner thighs feel bit better, bench was really good, i thought my right shoulder was feeling week after the first rep and i then realised it was lifting an extra 5kg haha rows were amazing, keeping my torso stock still and upping the tempo a little is really making a difference.

on a side note i think i know why ive been struggling on deads, and why my inner thighs feel over trained, my deads were way too heavy on the legs and not the back, more like a squat. im going to de load to about 60kg and clean up my form, might deload on squats for a week too, just to let my legs have a break, see what that does.

squats were still good, now squatting over my body weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, press was a struggle but better than last time, dialled it down on deads but focussed on form, mainly back now and it feels sooooooooo good, makes so much sense now

day 33

squats

bench
45kg
row
40kg

didnt do squats today as my inner left thigh isnt feeling great, there are now no 1.25kg plates at the gym cos some meat head broke then so i could only do 45kg benching but it felt a lot stronger than last time and rows were feeling really strong

day 35
squats
80kg
1-2-2-2-2
bench 45
row
42.5

i dont know if its because ive had a few days off training or because ive got a slight lower back twinge but i bottomed out big time on my squats, didnt go up on weight with bench because my confidence was down from squats and wanted one more solid session with 45kg, rows were a pretty awesome finish to a crappy session.

1x6 40kg
1x2 60 kg
5x5 80kg pr

shoulder press
1x8 20kg
1x3 27.5kg

felt like a god damn bear today form was spot on across the board and my lifts sky rocketed as a result:). made two new personal records and felt like a king. the worries i had after mondays debacle have been well and truly blown out of the water. this is the best ive ever felt.
