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 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!

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.

Two days to account for. Heavy squats Friday night, which didn't go as planned, and then one set of max bench reps on Saturday while doing shoulders and OHP.

Phenomenal day on Saturday, despite having a head cold. My acheivements while sick make me feel better about being totally ready to go on meet day.

Back after a week healing my right shoulder. Deadlifts yesterday.
= 1800 Kg
Total: 2,069,172.6 lbs/938,560.9 kg
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.
3x5 @ 275
4x4 @ 355

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.

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.

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!
80kg x 8
90kg x 5
100kg x 3
110kg x 1

Deadlift max test to see where I'm at. Got 160kg, could probably have managed 165 but tried and failed 170.
Not bad. Previous PR 180kg
60kg x 5
100kg x 3
100kg deficits 3x3

Deadlifts on sunday
Total: 966,360.9 kg / 2,130,461.1 lbs
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.
4x3 @ 365
3x1 @ 405
3x5 @ 185+55 lbs of band tension
4x5 @ 185
Raised-leg Spoto Press:

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.
