    Well, this was your 3rd week ^, and I am not sure if it is supposed to be this hard so soon per se and your 4th week you missed the 2nd rep, so, if it were me, and this is all I can give you an opinion from, is that I personally, might back down the work weight ( I am sure you don't want to hear that) to gain some momentum back in the ramp to the last harder weeks to follow, to say do the 5th week at #375 x3x3 (dropping maybe #25) and then see how the 3x3 go and feels. (Then maybe 3x3 with the #400 next then pick up the doubles afterwards)
    I am not sure a deload will necessarily give you that bigger jump in strength. Maybe the week 5 (or 6) #425 1x2 again, you will get 2 good clean smooth reps no hitch and week 7 #450 x1x2 you get both clean!? (<Maybe reassess after this one!? to see how they go or feel!?)
    I know you want to get back to where you were pre injury, (been there done that) but it might pay, to be a bit more patient and a little less aggressive on the weight jumps.

    To be fair, I meant the belt hurt, not the reps.

    Eeeeffffffff, fine. You're probably right, it's probably an ego thing. Maybe I'll lower the numbers and keep progressing through the program, using 475 as the target number, maybe 480.

    Hey, okay gotcha, (I thought it read hitched, not hiked, my bad) you know yourself better than anyone. I was more or less going by your 4th week and missing a rep but as you say too, maybe some missed sleep and just a bit under rested.
    Lastly, I don't know if you are a person who more thrives on an almost grinder type harder rep(s) or less intense. I know a few guys who do not recover well if they are going to heavy ie: above 92% 95% and then others who can do better closer to all out intense W/O's. I seem to do better or recover with harder or more multi reps at times.

    Oh makes sense. Yeah I'm not sure exactly what I'll do. You're bound to miss a rep or two here and there. So I'll take a longer warm up next Saturday and see how everything feels. Then I'll make a judgement call. I go through bouts of very poor sleep, have since I was little. It's the main thing restricting my recovery. Otherwise it's very good. GHRP seems to help. Idk I'll see where this week takes me. But I want to hit a strong 500 lbs. so if that means 6 more weeks or 16 more weeks I'm fine with it.

    Maybe I'll try to get video of a few sets this week. People here have been offering lots of advice I may as well do my best to accept it.

    I have a hip circle. I do monster walks, bodweight squats, and sumo pulls with it. It's pretty awesome.

    Deadlift

    400 x 3 x 3 (easy)

    Speed deads

    325 x 3 x 3

    Shrugs

    275 x 3 x 5

    The assistance work was quick but rough. Didn't mark down weights but they weren't as heavy as they should've been as I just worked with a partner and he's not as strong. Ah well.

    Motivation renewed.

    Not bad at all man! If 400x3 is easy, then you will be back to 500 sooner than later!
    500 is my goal as well, but I still have a bit of work to go. Went 415 x 3 the other day but it was fuggin rough, hard to hold those shoulders back, rounded pretty bad on the last lift.

    I've been focusing on keeping my back real straight, I've found a few unorthodox tricks that have helped quite a bit. Like for one I've put my hands out further, which increases my range of motion, but it allows me to push my chest through much easier, it's actually made a huge difference in my posture.

    415 x 3 is solid, 500 is a milestone for sure, I cannot wait to hit it again, and hopefully in competition.

    In other news, I hit a 460 squat. Which I'm very very proud of, belt and wraps.

    I'm built to bench honestly. I got T-Rex arms. But my squat is seems to never plateau, just slow and steady gains.

    Also my squat barely dropped after my surgery. Which is partly due to the fact that 2 days after my surgery, I went against my docs recommendation and I went in and squatted. I still wasn't able to see then, which is always a fun experience. Squatting completely by feel lol. But I didn't test my luck with DL and bench, so they both dropped some. Also being bed ridden messed with my mobility some, it seems to all be coming back rather quick.

    Just mentioning here, I've injured my low back benching. So this log will be on hiatus until I can deadlift again. I am deadlifting with a broomstick several times a day, and doing a lot of mobility work and stretches. I'm going to come back from this injury with some fire.

    I recently hurt mine too, feeling better now, but just start light and keep building back up. I did 5/3/1 starting at like 60 percent or so.

    Get well man

    I'm thinking about spending the next 8 weeks pulling from a 4" box. Keeping the weight low for a while. I felt fine with 185. So just to be cautious. I've been able to squat again, hit 225x10x3 the other night. So it's all going well and now I feel more flexible then ever.

    My bench hasn't taken a hit. So that's good. Hopefully I come back and am able to get a 1300 total this coming year.

    So just to let you guys know, this thread was meant as a review of the program, I didn't get a chance to finish but I still would say it's a very effective program, today was the girlfriends final week. She hit a 245 lb deadlift at a weight of 103. Which I believe is a 30 pound increase over 10 weeks. So from what I did an watching her, this program works, but is brutal, so don't take it lightly.

    On another note, my back feels fine, I focused on my mobility and flexibility since I've been injured which worked wonders, I'm able to do the splits again (it's been years.) I hit a squat of 225x17 but haven't gone any heavier, will start back to something a bit heavier next week. Bench press is unaffected, hit 260x2. Pulled 225 sumo the other day with no pain. Going to slowly out more weight up, going to go sumo for a while too.

    Thanks to everyone who gave me advice and sent me reading material.
