    Solid squats.

    They belted or belt less?
    No belt yet.

    Good session this afternoon.

    Squats:

    137.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Not too hard at all. Wore my strength shop knee sleeves for some extra support for my knees, and they also had the effect of not letting them come too far forward, especially near the bottom, which definitely helps in sinking into the hole rather than bouncing off of the knees.

    Press:

    65 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Quite hard. But I got them all.

    Deadlifts:

    185 x 5

    Not too bad at all. Like last time really.

    Then some quick foam rolling and home.

    Quicker one tonight. No squats as my hips are bothering me a bit; possibly tendonitis, not sure though.

    Dumbbell bench:

    32s x 6/6/6/6

    Quite hard.

    Seated rows:

    the whole stack x 10/10/10/10

    Not too hard.

    Seated dumbbell press:

    22s x 10/5/10/6

    On the second set the bench was adjusted to be too vertical so I was actually leaning forward a bit, which threw me off.

    Face pulls:

    3 x 0

    Leg raises:

    bodyweight x 10/10/10

    Some quick foam rolling and home.

    Poor session tonight. Body just wasn't ready.

    Squats:

    140 x 5/5

    Stopped there. They were excruciating, exhausting and form was poor.

    Press:

    up to 80 x 1

    Didn't have enough energy to get 5x5 with anything, really, so tried to match my old PR, and made it - just.

    Triceps pull downs:

    3 x 10

    Curls:

    3 x 10

    Some quick foam rolling then home.

    perhaps you were tired from work? Do you work on weekends?

    No, I only do a four and a half day week really (finish at half 1 on a Friday).

    Body just wasn't ready.

    Hip not been a problem lately. I think it was just a bit of tendonitis that has went away now that I briefly dropped the squatting frequency.

    Bad session tonight. Just wasn't in the mood to do anything, and gym was busy as ****.

    Squats:

    up to 160 x 1

    Low bar. Felt okay.

    Power cleans:

    up to 90 x 2

    Felt bad.

    Then home. Bit of a waste of time really.

    Not a bad session tonight.

    Front squats:

    110 x 3
    120 x 1

    Not too bad, and will hopefully improve quite quickly.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    85 x 5

    85 felt easier than 80, actually.

    Cable rows:

    Whole stack 3 x 15

    Triceps push downs:

    4 x 15

    Pushdowns are much better than pull downs.

    Then home.

    Crazy that you started this thread when I was a few months into high school and I'm now a few months from leaving it

    Not a bad session tonight.

    Pause squats [1s]:

    140 x 3/3/3

    Quite a bit harder than I thought they'd be.

    Push press:

    up to 101 x 1

    New PR. Was easier than 100 last time. Did overhead stuff because it's Monday, which means everyone is doing chest so no benches available.

    Close grip chins:

    bodyweight x 6/5/5

    Some foam rolling then home.

    Quick one tonight. Not feeling great or particularly strong today.

    Light squats:

    110 x 5/5

    As per title, light.

    Seated dumbbell bench press:

    22s x 10/10/10

    Not too bad. DOMS was worse than I though it'd be from Monday's push press, so could have been worse.

    Close grip chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5

    Then home.

    Decent enough session tonight.

    Squats:

    150 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    90 x 4

    Definitely never had a 5th a 90, but not as bad as it could have been. A bit tired from the squats.

    Deficit deadlifts:

    160 x 5/5/5

    Standing on a red 25; not sure how high it is. Not too bad.

    Then home.

    Average session tonight.

    Squats:

    152.5 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Press:

    70 x 3/4/3

    Meh. 4 is a PR with 70, but not what I was hoping for.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 7/6/6

    Decent enough.

    Leg raises:

    3 x 10

    Then home.

    Quick, but decent session tonight.

    Bench:

    80 x 5
    90 x 4
    80 x 8

    Missed the 5th on 90, again, but was disappointing, but I am sure 80 x 8 is a PR, so it's not all bad.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 6/6/5

    Arms were tired.

    Triceps push downs:

    3 x 10

    Some foam rolling and home.
