    Nah, in fact I don't think I've ever tested my 1RM on any lift ever.

    Sunday:

    Session 1:

    PP:

    87.5*2 (PB)

    Squat:

    140*5 (PB)

    Session 2:

    150*3
    170*3
    192.5*2+f

    PP and squat PRs were easy! Seem to finally be doing something right then.

    In contrast my Deadlift strength has diminished considerably enough that I'll have to lower the weight. Considering going back to just doing linear progression with adding 2.5/5kg every week to a 5RM. Probably going to heed that Mike T video I posted a while back and start Deadlifting more . Quite interested to see how it will pan out as going from once to twice a week has always paid big dividends to my lifts although a lot of people say the nature of the Deadlift is that it is hard to do more than once a week with any great deal of volume/intensity. We shall see. Will start off with just a single set of 5 at 75% of my 5RM on Wednesday, so probably like 127.5*5 to start with as I'm gonna cut the weight back to 170*5.

    BB curls:

    lol ****ing hell, my shorts ripped really badly while squatting. Naturally I finished my workout though.

    PP was hard, almost very hard. Will probably keep the volume constant next week.

    A rather nice start to deadlifting twice a week. Felt quite good.

    Been feeling really fatigued from Wednesday. Felt weirdly bloated during the workout too.

    4th rep on press was too much of a grind so didn't attempt 5th. Will probably do a full 5x5 on monday.

    Deadlift:

    127.5*5
    150*5
    170*5

    Been feeling pretty fatigued all week from Wednesday's workout, slight lack of sleep and revision. Have had a big loss of appetite too. So yeah wasn't expecting the PP and Squat to be easy but it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. PBs ahoy.

    Deadlifting for reps was tiring too, I guess partially because I decided to pull DOH.

    5th set of press felt a bit slow but overall it was good.

    btw if any of my diligent readers is interested in lots of ebooks and spreadsheets and other training stuff from my time lurking the internet feel free to message me.

    Squat:

    125*5*5

    PP:

    80*9*2

    BB curls:

    42.5*6

    Deadlift:

    132.5*5

    Hang High Pulls:

    90*1

    Everything was kind of easy today. Except the high pulls that is, my hamstring started feeling funny and I was pretty fatigued as I did this all in one session so they kinda sucked. Hence I decided to not bother doing them (they're just for fun really).

    woot hit another press PR. Think I'll do this weight again next week though as it was amazingly sloppy. I think PP has definitely helped it though. I can grind through reps even if I'm really shaky and fatigued.

    Yey finally hit 90*2 on Push Press although it was hard. Squat was 'medium' I'd say. Nice that it's finally moving though.

    Deadlift still feels a bit hard which is gay.
