    Tonight went better than I thought it was going to go.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Press:

    50 x 5
    60 x 5
    65 x 5

    Last set quite hard, but otherwise not too bad.

    Cable rows:

    whole stack 5 x 10

    Then home.

    Not a bad session tonight.

    Squats:

    135 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad at all.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    85 x 3
    70 x 8

    Weight was light enough, but have a really sore spot on the exact position I like to touch my chest with the bar, although this had a much bigger effect on the back off set.

    Deadlifts:

    212 x f/f

    Somewhat disappointed, but in reality I had no businesses whatsoever going for a PR given the lacklustre state of my deadlifts as of recent. I got the first one about half way up but upper back wasn't strong enough to follow through and grip lacking too. Second attempt never budged.

    Barbell rows:

    80 x 5/5/5

    Same problem as on bench, but felt worse.

    Then home.

    Nothing to complain about tonight.

    Squats:

    137.5 x 5/5/5

    More difficult but was told form was held through on all reps.

    Press:

    65 x 5/5/5

    Happy with this; not too hard.

    Pull ups/hammer grip chins:

    bodyweight x 6/6/6

    Okay.

    Lat pull downs:

    3 x 10

    Then home.

    Quicker session tonight.

    Front squats:

    110 x 3

    Knees not happy.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5
    87.5 x 3
    80 x 8 - slingshot

    Not too bad. Got a shot of a slingshot on the last set and although it takes some getting used to it does make it easier off the chest.

    Biceps:

    Did this "occlusion" training thing for the pump.

    Then home.

    How did you find occlusion training?

    It's practically a tournique isnt it?

    I wrapped a wrist wrap round my biceps and then did some curls with a band and got a massive pump. That's all I know.

    Hard session tonight.

    Squats:

    140 x 5/5/5

    Knee was hurting, and form didn't feel good (probably related to the knee pain), but got all reps.

    Press:

    66 x 5/5/5

    Very difficult.

    Deadlifts:

    180 x 5

    Not belt. Very difficult - especially the last rep.

    Then home.

    Was ill since last Saturday, mainly fatigue, so just a lighter one tonight. Also knee has been really sore, and was still sore tonight. Considering getting sports massage on quads and calves.

    Squats:

    120 x 5

    Weight was easy enough but as mentioned above, right knee not liking this too much.

    Press:

    60 x 5

    Not too bad at all.

    Some stretching and then home.

    Bad session tonight. Firstly, knee still bad. Secondly, gym was absolutely ****ing mobbed so couldn't get anything I wanted.

    Power cleans:

    up to 85 x 1

    Just wasn't feeling it, and didn't fancy waiting about for anything else.

    Then home.

    Short session this afternoon. Knee still sore and just wanted to fit a quick session in.

    Press:

    60 x 5/5/5/5/5

    More difficult than I was anticipating.

    Deadlifts:

    160 x 2

    Changed to deadlifting in my weightlifting shoes, primarily to see if they'll help my back in the set-up by making it slightly easier to get into a proper position. I know I've deadlifted in them on and off before (but primarily off), I always ended up eschewing them on the basis that the extra inch or so of ROM they added reduced the weight I could use. I never paid much attention to correct deadlift form before, believing it to be too simple a lift to not get it at least somewhat correct. However that's silly, so I'm trying to improve it, and also learn to correctly set the bar down too. So the weightlifting shoes did make the starting position feel a little easier, a little correcter, and I was going up fine until my workset of 160, which suddenly felt very difficult, grip suddenly almost gave out, and I felt somewhat dizzy, so called it a day.

    Then home.

    Not a bad session tonight. Knee wasn't as bad as last time, but was delayed in getting to the gym.

    Squats:

    130 x 5

    Again knee wasn't bad enough to stop me from doing this, but didn't want to go all out.

    Bench press:

    80 x 5/5/5

    Not too bad.

    Barbell rows:

    80 x 6/6/6/6

    Okay.

    Some mobility then home.

    Decent enough session tonight. A quicker one.

    Press:

    62.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Not too bad, but did have some difficulties when the bar got out of line.

    Deadlifts:

    160 x 5

    Not too bad I don't think. Again, to reiterate, I'm deadlifting in my weightlifting shoes to see if it helps me setup any better, particularly regarding back positioning.

    Did some occlusion training for my biceps again - hammer curls. Also did a lot of mobility throughout the session.

    Then home.
