    Decent enough session this afternoon. Quick one.

    Press:

    76 x 5/5/5

    About the same as last time.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5/5/5

    Last two sets close hammer grip.

    Then home.

    Tonight was much better than I anticipated given that I was feeling a bit deflated today...

    Squats:

    185 x 1

    Did this beltless, so just under my previous, several year old now, belted max of 186 kg. Was very difficult, though.

    Bench press

    105 x 3 - paused
    90 x 8/8 -TnG

    105 is the most I have ever benched. The triple was very difficult, though.

    Pull ups:

    bodyweight x 5/5/4.5

    Some foam rolling then home.

    Tonight was hit and miss. Just wasn't "on" tonight.

    Squats:

    132.5 x 5/5

    Light squats but felt heavier than they should have.

    Press:

    77 x 4

    The nadir of the night.

    Deficit deadlifts (15 kg/yellow plate):

    180 x 5

    Very difficult.

    Then home.

    Okay tonight.

    Squats:

    120 x 5
    140 x 5
    155 x 8

    Going to use 5/3/1 for squats, but I'm going to do it twice a week and not do the deload since I will be doing a deload on Wednesday. The 155 x 8 set was quite hard, actually. Rack was quite squint, too.

    Bench press:

    107.5 x 2
    90 x 8/8

    107.5 was hard. Maybe I'm pausing too long. Maybe not.

    Didn't have any chins in me so did some foam rolling then went home.

    Really **** session tonight.

    Squats:

    130 x 3
    150 x 3
    165 x 3

    Was hoping for 6 on the last set, but was just too heavy.

    Tried to press but couldn't even get a single rep of 77 so went hom.

    Slightly disappointing session tonight.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Bench press:

    90 x 5/5/5/5/5 - TnG

    Wasn't feeling that strong on the bench tonight so though I would get a bit of volume in. Weren't that hard.

    Deficit deadlifts (yellow plate)

    185 x 3

    Just wasn't feeling these tonight. Positions never felt right, and overall not good.

    Then home.

    Another bad session tonight. Not had a good session this week.

    Squats:

    140 x 5
    155 x 3
    175 x 1

    The 175 felt really heavy. Squats just felt a lot weaker recently.

    Press:

    70 x 5/1

    Just not feeling it.

    Then home.

    Better session tonight.

    Squats:

    155 x 5/5/5

    Back to 3x5 to hopefully build up again, as my squat was down. First set probably the hardest, with the last set probably the easiest.

    Bench press:

    92.5 x 5/5/5/5/5 - TnG

    Trying to get in some more volume.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/4/3

    Meh.

    Then home.

    Decent enough session tonight.

    Squats:

    157.5 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Press:

    70 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Quite hard. Definitely regressed on this. Also had a headache around half way though this too.

    Deficit deadlifts (yellow/15 kg plate):

    185 x 3

    Meh. Wore the belt. Same reps as last time but felt better. Still had the headache.

    Then home.

    Decent session tonight.

    Squats:

    160 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad overall, although form maybe not as good as last time. Gaze not constant and kinda bottoming out sometimes.

    Bench press:

    95 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Not too bad again, but the headache came back.

    Tried to chin but not tonight, plus headache had waned a bit and didn't want to risk it coming back, so did some lacrosse ball work, then went hom..

    Okay session tonight. Not a long one.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats. Kinda bottoming out again...

    Press:

    72.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Quite difficult.

    Then home.

    Decent enough session tonight.

    Squats:

    162.5 x 5/5/5

    Okay. Knee probably maybe coming back a little bit; perhaps form getting sloppy at the bottom with knees maybe coming forwards and inwards. I don't know for sure, but it's something to look out for.

    Bench press:

    97.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Quite hard.

    Deadlifts:

    185 x 5

    Quite hard again. Deficits clearly haven't done much for me, so I'm probably going to remove them from my training roster forever.

    Then home.

    Tonight was egregious.

    Squats:

    165 x 3

    Weight felt really heavy, knee not the best, and body just didn't feel like squatting correctly.

    Tried to press but 60 was a real struggle so went home.

    Good session tonight.

    Squats:

    165 x 5/5/5

    Quite hard and knee/leg kinda hurting.

    Bench press:

    100 x 5/5/5

    Finally! Quite hard. Going to drop some sets.

    SGDL:

    140 x 5

    First time doing these in a while. Tried straps but struggle to figure them out.

    Then home.

    Just not feeling up to it, it seems. It's not been all bad, and I mustn't dwell too much on the bad when there is still some good, like the benching for example.

    Tonight wasn't great at all.

    Squats:

    167.5 x 3

    Just wasn't feeling it. Kinda paranoid that my trousers were going to burst which didn't help.

    Bench press:

    110 x 1 - paused
    100 x 5/5/1

    New 1RM.

    Tried rows with 100 kg but only got a couple of triples, just wasn't feeling it, so did some lacrosse ball work then went home.

    Another bad session tonight.

    Press:

    75 x 5/0

    Barely managed one set, but didn't get a rep on the other.

    Deadlift:

    190 x 1

    Not sure what happened here. 170 warm-up wasn't difficult at all.

    Then home.

    Damn strong press still, was rep 5 an RPE 10?

    Maybe go to 180 odd for final warm up?
