Tue Sept. 4 BW: 142.6 +17.6 lbs since starting

Warm-up: Did some light stretching and reintroduced the samson stretch along with the usual 10 OHS, 10 pushups, 10 situps, 10 dips, 10 pullups and some mobility exercise.

Squat:

45 x 5 x 2
95 x 5 x 1
115 x 3 x 1
145 x 2 x 1

205 x 5 x 2
205 x 3 x 1

I noticed the squat getting tougher to do each workout so I think it's time for a reset and a double check on rest and diet.

Press:

45 x 5 x 2
55 x 5 x 1
65 x 3 x 1
75 x 2 x 1

100 x 5 x 3

Finally figured out what was wrong with my form and blasted through this one pretty easily but for the past couple of weeks I have found an issue with my left wrist getting an electric shock everytime I bring the bar down from overhead. This only seems to be an issue with the press and im not sure why it's happening.

Power Clean:

55 x 5 x 2
65 x 5 x 1
75 x 3 x 1
85 x 2 x 1

110 x 5 x 3

Crunchs: 3 x 12 (55 lbs)

Pullups: 1 x 12 (BW) 1 x 9 & 1 x 8 (25lbs)

Dips: 3 x 12 (35lbs)

All in all not bad and I expected a stall soon with the squat anyways which is why I did 205 instead of 210 or 215. Im planning on switching out back squats on thursdays with front squats and I'll just progress slowly with the back squat so I can keep good focus on the other movements. Another option is just working out 2 days per week and see if I can gain more weight faster. I was shocked to see how much weight I gained in a week. It is real motivating.
