That is odd. I just went back to your first page as I usually try and say something when people start their workout logs at least. No comment from me. It is kind of weird thinking about how many views your workout log has. I use my log as I would a blog cause I am too lazy to start one...

Felt that.

Press

The last rep took like 8 seconds and was the first time I ever let out a primal scream while lifting a weight.

Saturday Febuary 26th

Pull Up Ladder
1 2 3 4 5
1 2 2.18 (exactly 2.18)
1
Total: 21.18


Nice. Must have been the bicep curls that affected (http://www.diffen.com/difference/Affected_vs_Effected) my recovery last workout.

Fat Bar Deadlifts
135x5
165x3
195x2
205x1
105x5x10


Didn't quite lock out the first rep of 200 (maybe 2-3 inches short), attempted a second and got to mid thigh. I guess I'll just try to hit it again next workout, seemed to work last time.

Monday Febuary 28th

Squat
95x10
135x5
175x5
210x3
240x3
270x13


Probably had another rep in me but the suck had really built up by rep 13 so I racked it. Eh, leaves a pr for next cycle. Motivation is high now that 315x10 is only 2 cycles away, and I'm going to hit it or die trying. Weight-loss PR today too, down 15 pounds since I started cutting (230-215).

Good Mornings
100x5
125x5
150x5
190x5
212.5x5


This is easily my favorite lower body workout exercise combo. I'm starting to have difficulty controlling the negative near in the end ROM but it still goes up without an enourmous struggle.

Tuesday March 1st

Bench
95x10
132.5x3
152.5x3
172.5x9


5/3/1 isn't working for my benching with this caloric deficit. Although I probably haven't lost strength, which is a plus. Maybe that means it is working, but thats a depressing thought.

Pull Up Ladder
1 2 3 4 4.8
Total: Abysmal


Argh, this sucks. I'm going to take a couple days off and start greasing the groove.

Wrist Roller
49x3x1


Went up easy (ill be damned if I can understand my body). Looking forward to dangling two 25's next week.

Can you explain your notation on the pull up ladder? I have tried to figure it out but can't. Thanks. I am the other way around when I am short on calories I can't squat at all. Bench and press usually aren't impacted.

1 2 3 4 5 would mean I did 1, rested a minute, 2, rested a minute, 3 rested a minute etc. Then the next row is when I start over at 1 and work back up, continuing to rest 1 minute between sets.
