7/14

Squat: 45x8,5, 115x5, 145x5, 175x5, 205x3, 225x2,2,2, 255x1, 280x1,1,1,1,1
Deadlift: 185x5,5, 225x5, 255x5, 295x5, 330x10
Good Mornings: 135x3x10
Abs: 3x15

I decided to answer my desire to squat more through daily squatting. We will see how this pans out but it felt good today working up to a max for the day especially after squatting Monday. Ill monitor how it effects my 531 squat day but I look forward to experimenting with it.

I've pretty much been working out daily hitting Bodyweight stuff hard and weak areas. It has made my upper body much bigger which is nice.

One thing I wished I had done when I was squatting 3x/week was ice my knees even when they didn't hurt.

I'm interested to see how things go. Is that 280 for today close to your 1rm or was it how you felt today? Curious to see how close you can get to a true 1rm on a daily basis.

Good point, I'm going to definitely ice the knees regularly.

I'm not certain what my actual 1RM is, I haven't tested it in a long time but 280 was just what I was feeling.

Cool. I have wondered, on something like the squat, how big of a difference there is between taking to max, and then backing off for up to 50 reps, a la Broz, and taking to a max for the day, then backing off for maybe 10-20 reps.

For the people that work, I would think option two would help to ensure progress with less likelihood for injury.

Thanks man, it will be a work in progress but it shouldn't be too bad. Today was actually my 3rd squat day and everything has felt good.

7/15

Squat: 45 x 8, 105 x 5, 135 x 5, 165 x 5, 195 x 5, 225 x 3, 255 x 2, 285 x 1, 315 x 1, 285 x 1, 255 x 4, 225 x 3

Bench: 45 x 10, 105 x 10, 135 x 5, 155 x 5, 175 x 8, 150 x 10
CG-Bench: 140 x 10, 10, 135 x 10, 10, 10
Chins: 50 x 6, 60 x 5, 70 x 3, 80 x 10 x 1, 75 x 2,2, 70 x 2, 2
100 dips and 100 face pulls

interesting how 285 felt easier than 280 did yesterday and 315 went just as smooth. No grinders at all so im certain my 1RM is much higher than 315. No stiffness or soreness from anything today other than a little in my lower back from deads yesterday. I think I can get used to this even if I only go heavy a few days and light a few days.

Fairly sure Broz doesn't have his guys pull very often, maybe a couple times a year IIRC. Other than the competitive lifts of course.
