Good to see you're still lifting like a beast James! I've set some strength goals for myself for the year so it's nice to go back through your journals for inspiration :)
Hope everything's good your side of the water!

Thanks Rosco! I've been trying my best haha. It will be interesting to see what happens when I put some weight on. You're getting big too man!

Squats
barxa million, 95x10, 135x10, 185xx8, 225x3, 275x3, 315x3 (Too heavy, form was off, too far forward, wasn't tight), brought the weight down to 300 and did the rest of the nine sets of triples. Felt good. Solid depth, ass to grass. Currently eating a PB and banana sandwich and a shake. Cool

Bench Day
January 9, 2014
Worked up to 185 for eight sets of 4. Threw some wrist wraps on to see how they'd feel and was happy with them. Good day

Worked up to 275x6x6 on squats. Felt good. I think one of them on my third set I lost the tightness in my left hip and I dipped way below my comfort level in depth and brought it back up. But that through me off a little bit.

Squats
Worked up to 285 for 7 sets of 5. Did a depth check and it turns out I'm quicker coming up when I hit ATG.

Looks Smolov-esque, sick volume man. I love to train like this sometimes as well--just KILL it on the main movement and be done for the day.

It is smolov, It's the three week program though. I ran the full program last summer and jumped up 40 lbs on my squat. So I'm seeing how it goes on my bench and squat this time. I always find it helps my confidence on that movement because you do it so much with heavy weight, you consistently go in knowing what you have to do.

NICE!! Can't wait to see how it pays off for you this time.

Hell yeah we will.
I benched yesterday. I hit 175 for 6 sets of 5, and then 185 for 6. Because a 30 pound increase from last week sounded better haha.
Squats today

Worked up to 305 for eight sets of 4. Last two sets were killer and I was leaning over on the last couple of reps. Fatigue got me pretty good, and I was trying to fit that in, in a three hour break from class. Luckily I made it and the squats are beginning to feel a lot better. I'm more solid on my walk-out and I'm finding my setup to be more comfortable.

As long as I'm stretching my hips out a little more than usual before and after my sets, my squats feel deeper and more controlled which is nice.
Looks like I'm on track for 315 on triples on Thursday.
