It doesnt make sense to me but its harder on the flexor side then extensor. Felt unnaturally hard today so I stopped at two sets.

Sunday October 3rd

Bench
45x10
115x5
135x3
168x10x3


This is the most weight I've ever benched by one pound, but this was done for 30 reps instead of 7. Used to be my 4 rep max before starting this cycle. Feels good man. Time to hit a tasty, tasty PR on thursday. Fingers crossed for 200.

Monday October 4th

Squat
45x10
115x5
135x5
170x3
200x3
225x9 (BELT) PR!


Could defintely have gotten another rep if I didn't mind my form going to shit, but I do so I didn't. Might have reconsidered if I had known doing 10 reps with 225 would put my projected max at 300 though.

Good Morning
125x4x10


Beginning to hurt.

Thursday October 7th

Holy fuck.

Deadlift
135x5
205x5
260x5
293x3
328x5 (BELT) PR!


Nice. Its only a matter of time, baby.

Heres where it gets interesting:

Bench
45x10
95x5
115x5
135x3
175x7 PR!


My previous, all time best was 165x5/4/3. This puts my projected max at 210 up from 180 in 3 WEEKS (detrained). Amazingly potent program. The craziest part is that at no time during it did I really strain. It felt relatively easy.

Front Squat
122x3
140x3
158x10


Not going to call it a PR because I didn't go as low, which is normall ATG. That hurts me knees though, and this is just an assistance exercise so why risk it. Same depth as my squats. Still, there was less bounce so it didn't end up being a ton easier.

Sled Drag front/back
120x5 2:00/:30 intervals


Felt like LSD. I dont enjoy LSD. I'll stick to heavy dragging for distance on squat days.

Friday October 8th

Ring Chins
6 1/2, 5 1/2


Somehow lost a rep and a half. Taking this as a sign to not do all three sets and allow for some more recovery. Maybe it was the sled dragging? You know what, since I'm setting PR's regularly, I dont see the need to add more assistance work in the form of sled dragging.
