    Not intentionally. Tends to be something where I'll try for a 3RM and I'll just be so crap that I just get 1 rep @10. tbh I thinking of taking a break from normal squatting as well just like the OHPing. It seems to be the exercise where I have do lots of warming up and a bit of stretching for and yet I don't seem to make terribly great progress atm.

    Sumo Deadlift:

    150*5

    Thinking of doing a sort of deload over the next 3 weeks for the Deadlift as I seem to be overreaching quite a bit as well as the fact that I want to change exercises. Planning on doing Sumos for assistance and Deadlifts from 1-1.5 inch block as a secondary main.

    Wanted to do pin presses but this guy took at least an hour using the squat rack (surprisingly for squats). Better than last week where a group of guys were just doing floor presses with it with like 10 minute breaks between them. Felt a bit weak today so I did a bit less.

    What are pin presses and how come your chins are pretty low?

    I'm basically doing an overhead press but instead of doing them touch-and-go I rest the bar on the safety pins between each rep.

    I'm not that great at chinups cos:

    1. Never really been a staple of my routine
    2. I'm somewhat fat

    Yeah I get you, and fair enough, good to see you getting them in though, one of my favourite exercises, good luck with them!

    Squat:

    167.5*4 @ 10 (PB)

    e1rm = 190

    Deadlift from 1.5 inch block:

    175*5

    Well tickle my anus and call me Samantha, I actually set a squat PB today. Previous PB was 160*5. Was meant to do 3 but I felt good and didn't feel like leaving anything on the table today. Possible contributors (for my reference) as to why I suddenly might start making gains again:

    1. Been stretching hip flexors and abductors before each squat session as they are tight as ****
    2. Changed my form a bit as I can now put my hands narrower as my elbow doesn't hurt anymore from when I injured a while back. Can get a lot tighter now.
    3. Stuck with the pin squats for a while now so maybe the traits developed from doing the movement are transferring over finally.

    Going to do 180kg next week either for a few singles or if I'm really up for it, a double. Going straight to 190kg having only done 172.5kg for a single before and never having done a 1rm seems a bit unwise considering I don't gain much from doing it. Should be good to do the mythical squatting of 4 plates :cool:

    hmm was annoyed that I didn't get 5 reps. Thought I just about had it in me :/ Probably gonna spend next couple weeks with a 'deload' weight then start RTS with it. Think I might replace the Press with some bench supplement too. Not sure what secondary exercise I will be doing though. Most likely either pause bench or close grips.

    Deadlift from 1.5 inch block:

    180*5

    Milestone achieved. I finally squatted 180kg and for a double too just like when I first pulled 220kg. Second rep was a bit atrocious though. Kind of came down too upright then because of the instability the weight fell forward and made me good morning the weight. But hey 180kg good morning is good too . 20kg more and I equal Illidan_Stormrage?

    Deadlift from blocks felt pretty easy today compared to last couple of weeks so that presumably means my body has learnt the movement and I'm ready to kick ass when I start volume next week \o/

    Noooo my Uni recently got a powerlifting society and I won't be back until this October (since I'm on placement). At least it gives me time to wow them with a 260kg+ Dead and maybe 200-220kg Squat
