    I keep forgetting that this thread is a thing. :lol:

    Today started off like crap, but when it came time to move iron I couldn't have felt any better for the task at hand. I even did two more sets than I had planned on

    Deadlift 4x4x345 lbs: 5520 lbs

    Total = 282,742.268 kg / 623,340 lbs

    Deadlift 1x3 95kg, 1x3 110kg, 1x5 120kg=1,215kg

    Total = 283,957.3 kg / 626,018.7 lbs

    Are we sticking to decimals and if so by what protocol?

    kg x 2.204 = lbs
    lbs / 2.204 = kg
    I've just been rounding to the first decimal point.

    I just use the google toolbar up above to do all my sums and then type "x kg in lbs" in there and copy it over :)

    Just got the entire back of my leg tattooed, so squatting and deadlifting are going to be a huge pain for the next week or so.

    Hit a PR on sumo today. Started liking it a lot more than conventional, now that I have the form down. Worked up to a single, then dropped down and did 3 different variations for varying sets and reps. Pretty damn spent.

    Deadlift: 8x165, 5x255, 4x305, 1x375 (PR), 3x6 @ 275
    4" Block Pulls: 2x4 @ 305
    2" Deficit Pulls: 4x6 @ 235
    = 17,220 lbs

    Total: 680,542.2 lbs/308,776 kg
    Personal: 315,175 lbs/143,001.4 kg

    Broke 300,000 lbs personally. :woot:

    Bench day. Failed on a PR attempt and almost lost my life. Or at least my lungs. :lol: Form started deteriorating, and the bar started traveling towards my feet, causing my wrists to collapse forward. My spot was caught off guard because it happened so fast, so it came down and slammed into the catch bars. Luckily, I sucked my chest in as low as I could, so it only knicked me enough to barely leave a red mark, but it was scary. Got back under it and did some heavy close-grip singles, though. :flex:

    Bench: 3x2 @ 190, 1x205, 1x225
    Pause 1" off chest: 2x4 @ 175
    Close-grip Bench: 2x1 @ 205
    =3,380 lbs

    Total: 718,411 lbs/325,957.8 kg
    Personal: 318,555 lbs/144,534.9 kg

    Damn! I've never had a bad accident yet haha, fingers crossed.

    Last heavy deadlift day today, now 3 weeks off of them. Worked up to heavy singles.
    130kg, 160kg, 170kg, and 175kg.
    The 170 flew up and I am very happy with that. The 175 was a bit shaky near the bottom but still a good rep. Left me a bit unconfident about hitting 185 in a few weeks though but we'll see!

    Chain bench 80kg + chains 3x5
    Partial bench lower than last week, 100kg 2x3

    Total = 2435kg
    Personal = 136,982.5kg

    328,392.8kg / 723,982lbs

    Squats were terrible today. They killed me, and I wasn't even working with near my max. That's what I get for taking last week off, I guess. Tried to compensate by doing at least one extra set on front and paused squats, so I still got lots of work in. Just wasn't feeling great about it.

    Squats: 4x3 @ 275
    Front Squats: 3x6 @ 135
    Paused Box Squats: 4x5 @ 225
    = 10,230 lbs

    Total: 734,212 lbs/333,127 kg
    Personal: 328,785 lbs/149,176.5 kg

    Wasn't feeling good about Friday's squat session, so I woke up in a good mood today and decided to go punish myself with some high volume. Tried for as many sets of 8 @ 185 without my form breaking down. Got to 8 and decided to stop, as my lower back was starting to fatigue, which usually leads to me having shitty form. Regardless, I feel like 64 reps at 185 lbs was good. Then I hit some high volume leg curls and extensions, with some lat pulldowns to finish the day. I know it's a bit weird to do back workouts on squat day, but I recently watched a video of Brandon Lilly where he explains that he does lat pulldowns 5-6 days a week, because they're needed in every single power lift. You need them on the descend of your bench, you need them pretty much throughout the entire deadlift, and you need them to keep tight in the squat. Makes a lot of sense, so I'm going to try doing them 2-3 times a week and see how much it helps.

    Squat: 8x8 @ 185
    = 11,840 lbs

    Total: 746,052 lbs/338,499.1 kg
    Personal: 340,625 lbs/154,548.5 kg
