    Very nice solid session. No big headline figures but this is where the real gains are made.

    Intensity

    Squat
    162.5*5 PB
    175*1 PB but perhaps a tiny bit high. Flew up though so....
    180*1 PB and good depth.

    GAINZ.

    Bench
    92.5*4 PB but hoped for 5. Ah well. Wasn't going to get the 5th.

    Deadlift
    195*3
    Shagged from squats
    180*3

    Squat gains. Bench PB but no better than 90*5 tbh.

    No video as use music on phone to psych myself up. Now I know I have 180 comfortably I'll get a video at some point.

    Urm, depends when I train. On Saturdays there's usually five of us there and I'm the only non international powerlifter.

    Not including cardio bunnies etc.

    Felt like crap, exhausted. Wanted to go to bed as soon as I left work...

    Squat
    145*5,5,5,5,5
    Think this is a 5*5 PB. Equal PB at least. Good considering how tired I was.

    Bench
    82.5*5,5,5,5,5

    Deficit deadlift
    140*3
    160*5

    Saw a guy trap bar deadlift 245 for reps. Highest I've seen at my gym.

    New belt = pain. Especially when it's potentially on 1 notch too tight as I set it up in my room before the gym without realising how thing would change once I got lifting. Derp.

    Off on holiday tomorrow for a week. Will start a cut and continue to break in belt once back.

    The shoes were great though, good buy.

    Yea, expect pain and lots of bruising and more pain. You can find guides to breaking in belts online. Basically bend it back and forth.

    Breaking in belt. Volume

    Squat
    100*5
    120*4,4
    140*3,3,4,3,4,3
    100 AMRAP
    10. Arms hurt so stopped. Low bar isn't the most comfortable position to hold for ages
    100*3 belt too painful
    100*5 beltless. Much easier and lower. Hope belt softens soon....

    Deadlift
    60*5
    Belt on
    100*5
    140*5
    180*3,3

    Deadlifts with belt makes me feel like my eyes are about to pop out. Dat pressure.

    Forgot to mention, am training with a friend tomorrow so will do upper body stuff then. Easing into it after a while off too. Also thinking of running canditos method as want to train 4x a week once hockey season is over. Texas method was good but I need more than 3x a week when I'm not doing other sport tbh.
