    what's occlusion training?
    You wrap something around the body part you're training to reduce the blood flow out of it. It makes things much sorer and harder, but apparently it's very effective for a pump, that sort of thing. Obviously not strength training, though.

    Not a bad session tonight. Felt quite dodgy for a while this afternoon, so pleased I made it and had no performance issues.

    Squats:

    140 x 5/5/5

    Knee feeling a little better, but still not 100%. Wore my belt, but on the first two sets I think it was too tight as I didn't feel I could get enough of a breath and also throat was tickly and I was also choking after the third rep. On the last set I wore it a notch looser and it felt a little better.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    85 x 4
    70 x 10

    Okay. Went for one more with 85 because I felt like it.

    Barbell rows:

    85 x 6/6/6/6

    Harder than last time.

    Mobility and stretching throughout the session then home.

    Decent but quicker one tonight. Well, wasn't that quick because the gym was ****ing packed.

    Press:

    65 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Not easy.

    Deadlifts:

    165 x 5

    Not bad. Grip was slipping on the 4th rep but somehow it got better on the 5th, which was one of the best reps of the set.

    Mobility throughout the session. Then home.

    Feeling a bit dodgy again today, but not a bad session tonight. Only did what I had to.

    Squats:

    142.5 x 5/5/5

    Hard. No belt because of last time, though. Wore my new SBD knee sleeves, and they're really good if anyone's interested.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    87.5 x 4

    Got an extra rep. Surprised given how I felt. I also think that maybe the overhead work I have been doing has been helping my triceps.

    A bit of mobility throughout the session, then home.

    What size sleeves did you get and how tight are they?

    Medium, and they're somewhat tight. Not too difficult to get on myself.

    Not a good session tonight. Got up to 75 x 1 on the press which was very difficult and didn't really feel like I had anything else in me. Back tight. Don't think I'm recovering very well as of late. Did a lot of stretching and mobility throughout the session though.

    Knee still ****ed. Didn't do much tonight. Had to wait ages for a bench, and got there later than usual too.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    90 x 3
    75 x 10/8

    Happy with this; could've gone far worse. On the last back-off I did the reps very slowly.

    Barbell rows:

    90 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.
