      3-0-3 Tempo squat: 325x8 x4 sets

      10/13

      Deadlift: 405x6, 455x6, 500x6, 445x6, 445x6

      RDL: 275x10 x4 sets

      I'm struggling to find time around my work schedule to get an appointment in to get this elbow checked out and imaged. Really frustrating to be approaching 2 years since my last bench PR due to all sorts of recurring issues on the bench.

        Squat: 405x5, 455x5, 505x5 @8, 455x5, 455x5. That top set is technically a 5RM ... had never done more than 500x5 before, just because I don't grind 5RMs anymore. Turned out that was really easy.

        Isometric bench holds against pins: 5 singles? dont know how to log this

            Impressive numbers, Austin! I have seen you post several times about how you started out as a very skinny swimmer, and I have seen your before pics. Definitely inspiring! I am also scrawny and have been lifting for a while. Weight is going up slowly.

            Just curious what the timeframe was for your weight gain? Has it been fairly steady, or did you put a lot on during SSLP and then just a little after that? Have you mostly stuck with 3-4x/week training frequency? Do you think something similar to your Bridge program would be good for a skinnier guy who finished SSLP?

            Thanks!

              I went from about 155 to 180 during my LP. Then got stupid and lost a bunch of weight doing silly shit in medical school (back down to ~158 again). Then got back up to around 188 when I graduated medical school. Since I've been in residency have steadily moved up to around 200. Yes, always 3-4 times per week training.

                  I'm assuming the sets in bold signify PRs? If so, congratulations.

                      Yep.

                      10/27

                      Now back was wrecked from block pulls and beltless tempo squats.

                      Deadlift: 405x4, 500x4, 565x2 (shut it down to avoid grinding), 500x4, 500x4

                      Time to shift gears next week.

                        Press: 75 lbs x 10 x 3 sets w/o elbow pain

                        Going to try dropping the barbell rows for a little while to see if they're exacerbating the elbow issue.
