    Tonight wasn't that great.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Bench press:

    100 x 4/3/2

    Disappointing, really. Just didn't have much upper body strength tonight.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/can't remember

    Same as a above.

    Then home.

    Mixed session tonight. Mainly good but some bad.

    Squats:

    167.5 x 5/5/5

    Same as last time, which is good.

    Seated dumbbell overhead press:

    25s x 10/10/10

    Not bad.

    Deadlifts:

    190 x 0

    Bad. Maybe I wasn't recovered enough.

    Then home.

    Average session tonight.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Paused bench press:

    92 x 5/5/5

    Actually quite hard. On one side the bar felt much heavier on the last set, and also neck and pecs feeling really tight.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3

    Wanted to get some chins done.

    Lacrosse ball work on pecs for a bit between chin ups, then home.

    Not a good session tonight.

    Squats:

    170 x 3/1

    Just never felt right at all, including form wise. Knee and thigh also not feeling that great.

    Press:

    77.5 x 2/0
    70 x 5/0

    Just never had much upper body strength in me tonight.

    Barbell rows:

    90 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad at all.

    Then home.

    Mixed session tonight.

    Squats:

    170 x 5/5/5

    Very difficult. Form not really holding up either.

    Press:

    72 x 5/5/5

    Quite difficult.

    Deadlifts:

    190 x 0

    Dunno what's up with this. The warm up didn't feel bad at all.

    Then home.

    Okay session this evening.

    Deadlifts:

    190 x 3
    160 x 8

    Bit disappointed about the 190 - was aiming for 5 - but 160 for 8 not too bad for me. Quite difficult cardio wise.

    Barbell rows:

    90 x 8/8/8

    Okay.

    Tried to do some chins, but hurt wrist, and didn't get that many pull-ups either.

    Then went home.

    Good session this evening.

    Squats:

    170 x 1
    190 x 1
    200 x 1
    155 x 2/5/6

    200 is a PR. Felt very difficult, and I think I lost tightness at the bottom too. But I got it. The back-off sets were quite hard. First back-off set where I got a double, it's because my trousers felt too low so I stopped the set.

    Bench press:

    92.5 x 5/5/5 - paused

    Easier than last time, thankfully, although still quite difficult on the last rep or two.

    Then did some lat pull downs on the machine for 3 x 8.

    Then went home.

    Okay session tonight. Not eaten much today so perhaps wasn't expecting too much. A quick one.

    Deadlifts:

    180 x 5/5

    First set not too bad; second much harder.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5

    Then I hurt my wrist like last time I did these, and couldn't really do anything after.

    Then home.

    Another quick one this afternoon. Wanted to get done what I didn't manage yesterday.

    Press:

    74 x 3/3/3/3/3

    Was hoping for fives. Wrist still sore so wore wrist wraps.

    Did a quick set on CGBP to see if wrist was okay with that, but it was probably far too light, then went home.

    Good session tonight, generally.

    Squats: 172.5 x 5/5/5

    Generally very difficult, but got them all. Equals a 3 x 5 PR.

    Bench press:

    94 x 5 - paused
    90 x 3/3/4 - paused

    The last rep of 94 was very difficult, so rather than fail the next set I dropped it down to get some triples in. Did a 4 on the last set so I could get 15 reps.

    Lat pull downs:

    1 x 6
    3 x 10

    Not wanting to try chins with my wrist the way it is at the moment.

    Then home.

    Bad session tonight.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats. Lower body feeling quite sore from Monday.

    Press:

    70 x 1/0

    Really disappointing - never felt like I had any upper body strength in me tonight.

    Then home.

    Good session this evening - a quick one. Had a sore head though - possibly due to not drinking much fluid and the heat today.

    Deadlifts:

    185 x 6
    170 x 3/3

    Almost had a seventh in me for the first set, but grip failed. Better than I was expecting. Then did two quick back-off sets trying to focus on form.

    Lat pull downs:

    1 x 10 - chin up grip, wrists not liking this.
    1 x 6 - kinda close grip pull up grip, but weight quite heavy
    1 x 10 - wider grip pull up grip, felt better on the wrists

    Then home.
