  • 6/12

    Deadlift: 535 x 4, 590 x 4, 625 x 4, 535 x 5, 535 x 5. Top set was a PR, but last rep tore a callus and started slipping out of my hands at lockout. I think the strain of that rep also irritated my elbow a bit. Regardless, really bringing 700 into my sights soon!

    Beltless squat w/ mini bands: 385 x 7, 405 x 7, mis-loaded 440 x 7 and did it anyway, 430 x 7

    • Why no singles on your comp DL?

      • I'll be doing some singles soon, but last time I switched to singles with larger % back-offs (a few weeks back), my DL started backsliding (from 600 x 5 @ 8.5 to 625 x 1 @ 9 over the course of a couple weeks ... not good). Things bounced back immediately when I went back to the these sort ramping sets, so it seems my DL may like a slightly higher average intensity across the worksets. Meanwhile, my squat has done well with both styles.

                  Even more fatigue today.

                  Beltless Deficit DL: 455 x 1 @ 9 (yes, really. 455 for a single moved like a 9. I'm tired, ok?), 315 x 4 x 3 sets.

                  Some light benching

                  6 weeks of accumulation ... probably time for a low stress week when your deficit DL single drops from 585 to 455 in a week, lol

                        Jesus, dude. Were you able to get on the ground before you passed out?

                        • I got a recommendation to get a sleep study done and I'm skeptical about what someone can draw from watching me not sleep. We'll see how it goes.

                          • Was your target an RPE 8 for the PR squat? If so, do you just overshoot the RPE if you're feeling it on a single if you think you got a PR in the tank?

                              I ended up leaned over the side of the power rack and kinda went limp for a few seconds while blacked out.

                              Yeah ... I don't think the data they got on me is going to be particularly useful.

                              Not exactly. I only hit the overshoot single because it was a low stress week, and because 590 moved the fastest it's ever moved for me (shown in one of the videos). So I knew 620-625 was there, and since I wasn't doing much additional squatting volume (just one set after), it wouldn't cause much of a problem in the big picture. I had a feeling I'd be good for it coming into the session and mentally prepared accordingly.

                                Usually they need about 5 hours of sleep to get reliable data.
                                Sometimes its difficult fall asleep with all the wires etc attached to your head and limbs.
                                I hope they don't find anything serious.
