Still not very energetic but I sucked it up and did some really light Deadlifts.

Light Stretches.

Deadlifts - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 4 sets/6,8,10,12 reps/225lbs.

I tried some 275lbs but it just didn't feel right. I even tried going down to 135lbs and my consensus was to just stop. I then went for a walk.

Walk - 30 minutes.

I met all my "FitBit" goals for the day. Tomorrow is Heavy Squats. After a good night sleep I should do well.

I was supposed to do light Deadlifts today after work but I am bagged. I haven't been sleeping well and my job gets me up at 0400hrs. I curtailed Deadlifts and did lots of Band Assisted Pull Ups instead.

Light Stretches.

Band Assisted Pull Ups - 9 sets/8,8,8,10,10,10,12,12,12 reps/175-275lbs.

These aren't overly difficult as the band offers a fair amount of assistance. Lots of volume means lots of good work. Now it's time for bed. Night, night.

Power is slowly coming back and it feels great. I'm in much better shape than I used to be and my strength is increasing. Sweet!

Leg Swings and Stretching.

Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/bar, 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 3 sets/6 reps/315lbs, 335lbs/6 reps.

I really felt like doing more but this a gradual increase in weight. I really don't want to go too much too quick. This evening my son has guitar lessons so I went for a walk during his lesson.

Walk - 45 min.

Now it's home to get ready for work tomorrow and bed early. I'm tired.

Starting the cycle over again yesterday with light Squats.

Light Stretches.

Squats - 2 sets/12 reps/bar, 2 sets/10 reps/135lbs, 4 sets/6,8,10,20 reps/225lbs.

No belt and no knee sleeves. I wanted to push myself. I decided to squat. Then I decided not to squat. Then I decided to punish myself for being foolish. Feeling better for it. After Squats I went for an hour long walk.

Today was light Bench Press.

Stretching and Shoulder Mobility.

Bench Press - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 7 sets/6,7,8,9,10,11,12 reps/245lbs.

Standing Barbell Press - 95lbs/12 reps, 115lbs/12 reps, 4 sets/12,6,6,6 reps/135lbs.

This time instead of taking the bar from squat stands I cleaned it from the ground. Weak points are getting stronger.

Feeling good.

Deadlifts - 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, put on my belt, 405lbs/2 reps, 495lbs/1 rep, 550lbs/1 rep.


Band Assisted Pull Ups - 5 sets/8 reps/175-275lbs.


Not much volume but that's not the point today. It's all about moving big weights. I feel like I accomplished that.

Finally my Squats feel back on track. I really didn't expect today's performance.

Leg Swings and Stretching.

Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/bar, 2 sets/6,12 reps/135lbs, 2 sets/6,3 reps/225lbs, 315lbs/3 reps, 365lbs/2 reps, 415lbs/1 rep, 415lbs/2 reps.


My form was really good throughout. I am very pleased with this and it opens more doors for my future heavy Squats.

Another glorious day. The weather has been perfect for training in the garage and out on the driveway. I added a little cardio on top of the pressing.

Light Stretches and Shoulder Mobility.

Bench Press - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/10 reps, 275lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 2 sets/1,2 reps/345lbs, 2 sets/1 rep/355lbs, 365lbs/1 rep.


Standing DB Shoulder Press - 3 reps both sides/65lbs, 6 reps both sides/65lbs, 2 reps only right side/65lbs.


Skipping - 3 sets/100, 110, 120 reps.


Walk around the block - 30 minutes.

I really need to work on my over head strength. Currently it's pathetic. The OH presses were really fun today.

I've been having issues with my Squats lately. Today I started slow in an attempt to "sneak" up on my Squats. It actually worked pretty good.

Leg Swings and Stretching.

Squats - 4 sets/6,8,10,12 reps/135lbs, 2 sets/6,12 reps/225lbs, 3 sets/6,2,3 reps/315lbs, 3 sets/3,3,4 reps/335lbs, 225lbs/6 reps.


Total volume = 17075lbs.

Not too bad. Still lots of work for improvement but that's the idea. Getting leaner while gaining strength.

A lovely evening after work and some more stressful events going on in my life lead to Deadlifts. Not great Deadlifts, but Deadlifts none the less.

Light Stretches.

Deadlifts - 2 sets/12 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/8 reps, 7 sets/3,4,5,6,6,6,6 reps/315lbs.


Walk Around The Block - 3km.

The pulls were tough considering my mental state right now. I'll comment on it at a later date. Maybe tomorrow. The walk was nice as my lovely wife joined me. Now I'm eating a chicken ceasar salad.

That's right. Today I tried to Squat but I'm not feeling it. I feel very week and physically exhausted. I'm not tired. I'm fatigued. My lower half anyway.

Leg Swings and Stretching.

Squats - bar/12 reps, 2 sets/6 reps/135lbs, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/1 rep.

BLAH!!! Tapping out. It's cold outside. Only 9 degC today which doesn't help. Oh well, live to fight another day.
