Probably a good idea to chill a touch on the high rep rows. I know a few people who think that doing them for too long is a recipe for soft tissue issues.

Your squat is pretty sick. In a good way.

Thanks man,

10/25

Squat: 65 x 10, 115 x 10, 155 x 10, 185 x 10
Deadlift: 190 x 5, 230 x 5, 275 x 5, 315 x 5, 355 x 3, 400 x 1
DB Bench: 45 x 20, 60 x 15, 70 x 10

After reading that article on the safety bar squat by Wendler I decided to give these a shot since the gym has one. It's a challenge, I like it.

As for deads, it was nice to finally pull 400 after having a rough time with 390 a couple weeks back.

10/28

SB Squat: 65 x 10, 125 x 10, 165 x 10, 205 x 8
Bench: 100 x 10, 125 x 8, 145 x 5, 165 x 5, 185 x 3, 210 x 3, 150 x 11
T-Bar: 50 x 20, 75 x 20, 100 x 16, 125 x 12

ended with some arms and fly's

Weight is sitting steadily between 148-150. Workouts are getting tough but I feel this is entirely a recovery thing as well I just don't eat a lot or sleep much lately. I am enjoying the other things in life just getting this job situated, enjoying drinks with friends, working and such. Would be nice to get all this situated first, maybe then my bodyweight will go up some more and help the lifts improve.

10/31

Squat: 45x10, 135x8, 175x5, 210x5, 240x5, 270x3, 305xf,f
Press: 75x10, 100x5, 115x5, 130x3, 145xf,f

Ok so not a good workout, I attribute it to this:
- being out late friday and sat
- getting two friends out of dui's, that was a 530 am phone call
- taking some one home in the middle of nowhere sunday that took forever
- coming into work monday finding out i no longer have a job
- personal trainer who really pissed me off at the gym today saying a guy my height and size should not be lifting heavy weight because it's dangerous
- bank messing up my last car payment and now I have to repay it this week and this month's payment 2 weeks later

needless to say I'm not in the best mood and I'm canceling my gym membership now.

Well that sucks all the way around. Hopefully you get things situated.

Hmmm, I posted a reply saying that day looked rough, but it's not here.

Sorry to hear about the rough day Kevin.

So some good news and some other stuff.

I was hired yesterday as a CO for the state and I start in a few weeks so I'm very happy about that. I've been dealing with some rough days in the gym so I took the last week or so off and went back in today and just couldn't deadlift or get into 5/3/1. These rough days have been ongoing for a while.

Been on 5/3/1 about 10 months and it's rough right now. So today I went in and just did some squats, rows and presses

Squats: 45 x 10, 135 x 10, 185 x 10, 225 x 6
Press: 45 x 10, 75 x 10, 95 x 8, 115 x 5, 5, 5, 135 x 15 singels
BB Rows: 135 x 8, 155 x 8, 185 x 6, 205 x 3, 3, 3, 3, 3
plus about 50 or so chins

I feel kind of burned out on 5/3/1. Not sure what I'm gonna do or what my goals should be. I'll need to figure it out.
