    Yeah it definitely is. 4 squat racks. 3 platforms. A bunch of specialty bars. Indoor turf. Sleds and tires. Kettle bells. And a ton of bands.

    5/3/1 Squat Night

    135 x10
    135 x5
    225 x3
    225 x3
    285 x5 (first set)
    325 x3 (second set)
    365 x1 +3 extra reps.

    4 reps total @ 365 = a project max of 415 (upped my projected max by 25 lbs since last week)

    Leg Press
    Worked up to 590lbs for a set of 10
    4 sets total

    Calf Raises
    3 sets of 10

    I was really hoping to hit 5 reps at 365 but my technique was faltering around the 4th rep and I didn't want to have to have an ugly grinding rep be the last one of my set. This is especially true because the program emphasizes that you should always leave a rep or two in the tank. I do feel that the heavy conditioning work on Saturday hurt my workout tonight a little bit because I was still sore going in the gym tonight.

    Next week will be a deload week @ about 50% to rest and recover. The first week of December, I will be back at it heavy again with some triples and higher working maxes.

    Song of the day:

    Wise move to back off.

    Wish I would have realized this myself when I was younger. Probably would have a fully intact hamstring, still

    Yeah, I feel like I can benefit from a whole week of rest. I aim to do this every 4th while on this program. Also I don't want to take away from the program or anything but this is a scheduled deload. I know a lot of people don't do it or skip every other one but I am planning to take it on a case by case basis. This time I feel that I need it... It also falls during the first two days of hunting season so I'll be out in the woods Monday and Tuesday so it works out nicely.

    Yeah that works out pretty favorable. I will probably de-load next week also, very underrated. I may have to pick your brain on how exactly to set it up. Im still a virgin in the Power lifting arena, figure you're a good one to follow

    Thanks bro. I try to at least pretend to know what I'm doing. I'll just be lifting at about 50%. Still going through all of the motions but using it for more of a recovery purpose than anything. The one thing to remember is that a deload week is to DELOAD. So rest, eat up, and enjoy an easy week. A lot of people that I have trained with over the years don't understand a deload week. Some of them just skip the gym for the whole week and have a hard time coming back the week after... or others will go in and do 50% on their main exercises and try to make up for it with extra accessory work. A deload is a deload... so I'll be pretty much doing 50% on everything.

    Craptastic Bench Night

    I was running late tonight and I skimped on my warm up. I could definitely tell... My bench didn't feel fluid at all... It felt rough and every rep just felt muscled up. I never got in the groove tonight so it ended up being a rather disappointing night.

    Bench
    135 x10
    135 x10
    135 x10
    225 x5 (first set)
    255 x3 (second set)
    285 x1 + 3 extra reps
    285 x2 (I was mad so I laid down for another set and just paused two reps)

    4 reps @ 285lbs = Project Max of 323

    Incline Db Bench
    5 sets of 10 w/ 80's

    Lat Pulldown
    5 sets of 10

    Rope Pushdown
    100 reps

    Pull ups
    3 sets

    Next weeks deload is looking better and better each day.

    Deadlift and Press day

    Deadlifts done with new form

    135 x10
    135 x10
    225 x5
    225 x1
    315 x1
    335 x5 (first set)
    385 x3 (second set)
    430 x1 + 4 extra reps

    5 reps @ 430 lbs = Project Max of 500 lbs
    This is a new 5RM for me.

    Good Mornings
    3 sets of 10 w/ 135

    Military Press
    95 x10
    115 x5 (first set)
    135 x3 (second set)
    155 x1 + 3 extra reps

    Side Raises Super Set with Bent over rear delt raises
    20's x10
    20's x10
    25's x10

    Fat bar curls
    4 sets of 10

    Tricep push downs
    3 sets of 10

    Hammer Curls
    40's x10
    50's x8
    55's x5 drop to 40s'x8

    Bodyweight of 249lbs

    I did my deadlifts like Clint Darden describes in this video:


    They worked very well today and I felt really strong. The bar moved fast on every rep and I felt strong throughout the deadlift portion of my session. I did stop, take 2 steps back, and re setup for each rep.

    Still dosing at 6 caps Joint mechanic a day. Feeling good. No inflamation in the shoulder today and no real pain. Just some aches post workout but that was easily taken care of with some ice.

    Deload Week Day 1

    Bench:
    135 x10
    135 x10
    185 x10

    Press
    95
    3 sets of 5

    Nice easy day at about 50%. Spent the last two days in the woods hiking and hunting.

    I plan to do light squats/deads on Thursday and rest up until Monday. Monday will start my second 5/3/1 cycle.

    Body weight was at 248 this afternoon which is low for me. I'm going to try to do a bit of a refeed this week and into next week to get me back into the mid 250 range for the start of the second cycle next week.

    Tonight I did some light squats... up to 225 and pulled the same. Nothing really to report. It has been a slow week and I'm itching to kill it next week after this deload.

    Squat Day

    Warm up

    Skwatz
    135 x5
    135 x5
    225 x3
    275 x3 (first set)
    315 x3 (second set)
    355 x5 (third set)

    Projected Max = 415 lbs.

    Cambered Bar Squats
    I have no idea how much this bar weighs. Its more than a normal bar but because I don't know exactly I am just using the normal bar weight for my numbers.
    135 x10
    185 x10
    225 x8
    245 x5

    Calf Raises
    3 sets of 10

    Feeling good about today. My joints are great. Nice and lubed up. No knee pain, no shoulder pain, and no hand pain to report over the last week or so.

    I have been running at 6 caps per day so this log will be over at the end of the week. I'll have a detailed write up then and move back into my training log.

    Definitely sore today. I was worried that with all of the squat work from yesterday that my left knee would cause me problems today. But that is not the case. Feeling nice and sore but no knee pain what so ever.

    Nice squat day. Getting a little more confidence in your joints now?

    Absolutely. More confidence means I can't start pushing it a little harder and see what happens. I'll be picking up some more of this to continue after the log has ended.

    On another note... Bench night tonight!

    Hell of a day...

    Had an afternoon meeting that ran all meeting. I missed lunch and my pre workout snack so I had to jam it all down before I went out to train. Went in to train dehydrated and full from just eating but still felt empty.

    Warmed up the shoulders and went to town...

    Bench
    135 x10
    135 x10
    185 x5
    215 x3
    245 x3
    275 x5

    I had a hard time getting tight on the bench and I wasn't able to really stay in the groove. I could have pushed out some more reps but things weren't jiving like I thought they should so I did the prescribed reps and 2 extra and called it a day with that

    Boring But Big Bench
    155 5 sets of 10

    incline Db Bench
    80s x10
    80s x5
    Just wasn't feeling it so I moved on

    Tbar rows
    2 plates 5 sets of 10

    Lat Pull down
    4 sets of 8

    Tricep Pushdowns
    5 sets

    I'm having trouble keeping my bodyweight up in the 250's right now. The last few days I have been waking up around 246-247 and ending the day around 252 but its not holding like it used to. I added a bit of creatine into my diet tonight and I'll be continuing with that along with some higher calorie foods with extra protein shakes to hold down some lbs.

    I attribute the crappy night to a combination of fatigue from a long stressful day at work, being underweight, and being sore from squatting heavy yesterday. Still went through the workout, put up 2 extra reps, and did everything I could to make progress tonight. I feel that its days like these that build character and show you who you really are.

    I hope you meant "i CAN start pushing a little harder", might get some of this to run as a preventative as my shoulder is already starting to grind a bit from picking back up bb bench.

    Solid work man, i know the feel of "hell of a day"
