    That's a nasty deadlift session Mike haha.
    First full session in a while today. As well as sorting out my time commitments a bit more, I'm also happy to be handing in my notice for my weekend job tomorrow :hbang:Bring on fulltime self employment. Will be a challenge for a while but should be very productive and give me more than enough time to work, train, and shred hard!

    I am not surprised how much weaker I've gotten with 4 months off and undereating, but what shocked me most was my grip strength today on deadlifts - it was almost a struggle!

    Squat 4x4 x 100kg
    Bench 4x4 x 60kg
    Deadlift 4x4 x 120kg
    Total = 4480kg

    Big bench yesterday, with a small PR after hitting heavy doubles. It leads me to believe my actual max is 5-10 lbs higher, which is definitely a confidence booster. I hate benching, but it's where I need the most work. Got pissed off and went to work.

    Bench:
    10xbar
    10x95
    10x135
    5x185
    6x2 @ 205
    1 @ 235 (PR)

    Close grip:
    3x1 @ 225

    Spoto press:
    6x3 @ 185

    Deadlifts. Worked up to 355 for some reps. Didn't feel like it was super great, but then I remember that it's only 90 lbs under my 1RM, so 16 reps with it isn't too bad. I'm having a really hard time adjusting to training with partners every day. Up until this point, I always trained alone, which made me get .... done and out of the way. Now I feel like I'm in the gym longer with less happening. Don't get me wrong, I am excited to see the two guys I'm lifting with get into it. But some days I miss being able to go in and hammer it out by myself, with my headphones blasting.

    Deadlift:
    10xbar
    10x155
    10x245
    3x5 @ 275
    6x325
    4x4 @ 355

    Deficit:
    3x5 @ 285
    = 20,480 lbs

    5/20/15:
    Benched this morning. Despite waking up late and not eating beforehand, I hit a rep PR with 225. Hit 2.5 reps, which is only 10 lbs away from my 1RM. Makes me happy about the progress I've made in such a short time. Only 3.5 weeks left until my next meet, and I want that 1,200 total. I've also stayed below 165, which makes me think I can do the meet in the 165 class.

    Bench:
    10xbar
    10x95
    10x135
    5x185
    2(.5)x225

    Close-grip:
    2x3 @ 205

    Spoto Press:
    2x4 @ 185

    Incline bench:
    3x7 @ 135
    = 9,760 lbs
    = 30,150 lbs

    Total: 2,099,323 lbs/952,505.9 kg
    Personal: 1,209,438 lbs/548,746.8 kg

    You're right Mike, training with partners definitely has its pros and cons.

    Squat: 4x4 120kg
    Bench: 4x4 65kg
    Deadlift: 3x4 130kg - 1x7 140kg

    Deadlifts felt good this day. Obviously I still have a lot of strength to get back, but my grip felt good, and for the first time since resuming training, my deadlifts felt solid. The last few weeks I've felt very unfocussed and fragile whilst deadlifting. The last set made me happy.

    Total = 5500kg

    Personal = 232,435kg

    Plenty of squatting today. For some reason front squats feel real good since I started training again. Partly because I've gotten very stable with the grip now. My previous best was 100kg for 5x5, today I surpassed that easily and decided to try maxing out!

    Front Squats:
    80kg x 8
    90kg x 5
    100kg x 3
    110kg x 1
    115kg x 1
    120kg x 1

    Hit some back squats after:
    90kg x 5
    100kg x 5
    100kg x 5

    =3185kg

    Personal = 235,620kg

    962,430.9 kg / 2,121,197 lbs

    Deadlift max test to see where I'm at. Got 160kg, could probably have managed 165 but tried and failed 170.

    100kg x 3
    130kg

    Quite the heavy weekend. With lots of volume. Did a rep challenge for Memorial Day, and ended up pulling 225 for 22 reps, then went up from there. My hips are toast. Then yesterday did some heavy squats and bench with bands. Squats weren't super heavy, as my hips were shot from Saturday. But bench felt great on both days.

    Deadlifts:
    10xbar
    30x135
    22/10/10x225
    10x315

    Jumped the gun on trying for a PR last night. I usually wouldn't be eager to try for a PR this close to meet day (18 days out), but I was ready to go. Resulted in failure, but I'm not upset about it. It was right below lockout and it came up really fast. Not to mention I've deadlifted 3 out of the last 4 days, and my warm-ups were spaced too far apart in weight. Really excited to get rested up and smash it.

    Deadlift:
    20xbar
    10x165
    10x255
    8x325
    2x375 (all beltless)
    miss x465

    Block Pull:
    1x415

    = 8,865 lbs

    Total: 2,189,976 lbs/993,637 kg
    Personal: 1,268,953 lbs/575,750 kg
