    Wrists felt trashed today for some reason.

      squat 300x5x3
      bench deload 205 (4/5/4/2)
      deadlift deload 345x5

      Despite the considerable deload, deadlift still gave me some trouble. I've started to second-guess my form. Deadlift used to be my most confident lift, one that made progress even when I went weeks without pulling. And getting to 405x5 wasn't too difficult. Now I'm struggling at much lower weights. I attribute it partly to the fact that I stopped training the lift for long periods in the past 4 years. Maybe it just needs more burn-in time. Not sure what I'll do next time. Maybe the same weight. Would also help to put it on a day where I'm not squatting. Bench deload didn't really work, but I'll redo the weight next time. I'm leery of over-deloading while on a cut.

        Pasta is a terrible pre-workout food. I've never felt so drained on a high-carb day. Little bit of grind on some squat reps. I've decided that for bench and OHP, I'll no longer add extra reps to get to 15. And both need a deload. I added a second HIIT day, and lost 5 lbs. this week as a result. The increased loss rate means the upper body will suffer, and I expect the rate to persist for at least a couple more weeks. In any case, you just have to accept regress during a long cut. I'm in my 10th week with a long road ahead.

          Splits were in the 1:25 range. My training load (plus the cut) is trashing my legs; feeling much less fresh than when I first added the rower in. On an up note, did determine that I can deadlift at the West Campus fitness center, where I row. They have a legit oly bar (I even weighed it) and enough bumper weight for 405 at least, which works for me (it certainly won't go above that during this cut). No signs that prohibit chalk. Will probably bring my little deadlift jack, too.

              Airdyne 8x

              Wasn't going full tilt on the bike, because if I do, I can't get 8 rounds in. Judging by my fatigue at the end, the intensity was rower-level, which is what I was shooting for. Squat felt better than 305. Three plates seems doable, but we'll see how trashed my legs are Monday.

                Squat matches 3x5 PR. Not really a terrible grind, tbh.

                  Brought the splits down a bit. 1:21-1:23 for most.

                    Brutal sore throat today; expecting a cold now.

                      Big deadlift deload. Done without belt, double-overhand grip. God I love pulling without a belt. Just ordered a 3" from Dean to see if that helps. In the meantime, I think I'll try to keep it beltless. Not sure what I'll end up doing with power clean. 185 felt heavy, which sucks. It shouldn't. Took a sick day yesterday, but will finish the week without missing anything. Cold never seemed to set in after the sore throat.

                        3x5 squat PR. Pretty happy this was possible 11 weeks into a cut. Will be out of town for a week starting tomorrow, and though I will have access to a gym, will reduce the intensity and try to work out some accumulated trashing of my back. I wouldn't say it's injured exactly, but maybe close to that. I get some sharp pangs in certain positions. No radiculopathy, so I'm sure it's just muscular, but back pangs are always scary.

                            Each press set power cleaned into position, because no racks were available. Deadlift in Converse, no belt, no chalk, DOH.

                              Squat isn't exactly in a deload. I'm not sure where it should go right now. Squats done in Converse with no belt. I would have benched 202.5 today but no micro plates available.
