    Okay session tonight. Feeling a bit off today.

    Squats:

    125 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Press:

    72.5 x 5/5/5/5/5

    Happy with this. A little harder than last time.

    Did 6 chins, but shoulders and arms tired, so did some foam rolling then went home.

    .
    All power to you hitting 5x5 with strict press.

    I did 65 for 6x6 today, absolute monster of an exercise to get through. Literally at the start of each set thinking; "have I rested long enough to not balls this up and lose my fourth/fifth/sixth rep"

    Do you find that you rest longer between sets of strict press than you might other exercises?

    No. Squats are the longest, due to the amount of dread. I think; I don't really time my rest periods, but I think my squat rest periods are generally longer than my pressing or benching ones. But today I think I did rest a bit longer.

    Good session tonight. Got a bit of a sore head later on, though.

    Squats:

    167.5 x 5/5/5

    As difficult as last time. Stance maybe slightly too narrow and last set which made it more difficult than the others.

    Paused bench press:

    97.5 x 3/3/3/3/3

    Last rep of each set very difficult.

    Barbell rows:

    95 x 6/6/6

    Then home.

    Tonight was egregious.

    Squats:

    127.5 x 5/5

    Light squats, and about the only thing that went okay.

    Press:

    70 x 3

    Arms and shoulders just felt ****ed.

    Tried deadlifts but didn't even have 160 in me (possibly grip related) so went home.

    Tonight was decent enough.

    Squats:

    170 x 5/5/5

    As difficult as the last heavy effort. Stance maybe a bit narrow on the second set. Technique a bit hit or miss. But I don't think they were quite as hard as the last time I did this.

    Paused bench:

    100 x 3
    90 x 5/5

    Triple was quite hard. Fives weren't too bad.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 5/5/5

    Going to have to work back up at these.

    Foam rolling then home.

    Just a quick one this afternoon. The way things panned out meant I didn't have much time to squeeze a session in.

    Squats:

    127 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Press:

    75 x 4

    Was hoping for five. But was in a rush and don't usually train this time of day, so that's my excuse.

    Then home.

    It used to be before they removed all the powers from mods a year or so ago...

    Decent enough session this evening. Wasn't in long.

    Bench press:

    100 x 3/3/3 - paused
    90 x 6/6 - TnG

    Decent enough. Five straight triples paused probably isn't enough, probably need use fives to build strength.

    Deficit deadlifts (yellow/15 kg plate):

    170 x 5

    Not too bad at all. What I like about these is that they really force you to get tight at the bottom, which is one of my weaknesses.

    Then home.

    Decent enough session tonight, overall.

    Squats:

    172.5 x 5/5/1

    Back wasn't strong enough so only did 1 rep on last set. Other sets very difficult.

    Press:

    75 x 5/5/5

    Pretty difficult, but a PR.

    Chins:

    bodyweight x 6/6/6/3

    Some foam rolling, lacrosse ball work, then home.

    Decent session tonight.

    Squats:

    130 x 5/5

    Light squats.

    Bench press:

    102.5 x 3/3/3 - paused

    Very difficult, but that's my old touch-n'-go PR...

    Incline dumbbell bench press:

    30s x 8/8

    Not too bad.

    Deficit deadlifts:

    175 x 5

    Same as last time.

    Then home.
