365 felt damn heavy. Hopefully just accumulated fatigue, I'm going to take a week off and then max.

Saturday April 7th

Deadlift
135x10
225x5
315x2
365x1
420x6x1


Felt fresh today, good amount of rest. 3 minutes rest for the first four, then 5 minutes rest. Last one barely came off the floor. This was a 1.95x BW, feels pretty good to hit it for 6 singles without a belt. Hopefully I can hold onto this strength all the way down to 180.

Press
45x8
65x5
75x3
95x1
115x6x1
125x7x1
135x4x1


Pretty unstructred, max 1 minutes rest between sets. Had no target weight in mind, just lifted until I felt I had strained enough. Hopefully I didn't overdo it.

DB Row
110x5
100x5


Laziest back workout ever, but form was really decent. Feels like I might even be stronger then when I started cutting.

Motivation was low today, deadlifts I guess took alot out of me. Just hit the base volume and quit.

Squat
135x5
185x3
225x1
270x15x1


Tiring.

DB Row

Thursday April 12th

Press
45x10
65x5
95x15x1
115x5x1
135x7x1


I guess that's a PR for singles with 135. Means I could probably get 4-5 consecutive considering the 1 minute rest between sets.

DB Row
60x8
120x5
110x5


Eh. 110 felt easyish.

Friday April 13th

Squats
95x5
135x5
185x3
225x1
265x1
290x12x1


On the minute.

Lost a potential client today. Went to her home and took her through some exercises (squat, deadlift, bench) and she seemed 100% ready to buy. Today I get an email saying her chiropractor told her not to do my program because of her lower back problem. Didn't anticipate this actually, I can see it being a real problem when clients or potential clients go to a medical practioner and hear about how my having them squat below parallel will ruin their knees. I probably need to start advertising more towards those who want to barbell train and get strong, but that's like 2% of the people who make up the market for PT.

So lazy.

Down to 212 yesterday. I lost 6 pounds in the last two weeks, probably from the increased frequency.

Made it to page 2 for "Personal Training Montreal", you mad my competitors?

Monday April 16th

Press
45x8
65x5
100x12x1


Very under-recovered today, 100 felt heavy. Motivation has been in the toilet the last few days, could probably use a deload. Buying some nicorette tonight, going to experiment with nicotine as a pre-workout/pick-me-up.

DB Row
20x10
40x5
80x5
100x5
90x5


Pistols - a couple on each leg
Dips - 3


Holy shit, I can do pistols! That came as a shock. Rock bottom too, but with a stretch reflex. Dips were pretty much a max set, but still, feels good to be able to do bodyweight stuff again.

Straight Bar Chin-Up
10


Sweet. I wonder how many I'll be able to do at 180.

Sweet lady nicotine, you've given me my intensity back. Belted, 1 minutes rest. On the last holes for my inzer extra large. Anyone in the Eastern Canada region interested in trading my extra large for their large?
