      Indeed I am. And I seem to be handling it reasonably well too.

        2nd Cycle - Week One reps/sets

        Warm Up: Airdyne 8 minutes, Back Ext 20*3, Left Leg Ext 60kg 8*3 (5ct Eccentric), Step Up/Down (5ct eccentric) 24" box 8*3

        Squat - 100kg 8*3
        Bench - 70kg 8*3
        Deficit Deads - 135kg 5*3

        Dumbbell Fly - 35/40/45lbs *10
        Hamstring Curls / Leg Extensions (l/r) - bw / 50kg 25*3
        Hammer Curls 3-0-3 tempo - 30lbs 5*5
        Tri Pulldown 3-0-3 tempo - # 10 5*5
        Dead Bugs - 60sec *3

        Just a great session. Everything at the correct RPE of 7. Finishes as good a week of training as I can remember.

        My last Squat set was as good a set from start to finish as I've ever put together: in balance, good bar path, effortless.

        Haven't done Deficit Deads in a long time...boy is that bar a long way down there. Especially so as we've been doing Big Wheel Pulls for the last few cycles.

        Blew up the arms and legs to end the session. Tempo work was eye opening...feel the burn!

          2nd Cycle - Week Two reps/sets

          Squat Single - 70kg 5*3, 100kg 3*3, 115kg 3*2, 125kg *2, 135 / 145kg *1
          SSB - 107.5kg *5
          SSB - 977.5kg 5*2
          In Place Lunges - 16kg 10*3
          Dumbbell Mid Row - 70lbs 8*4
          Dumbbell Revs Fly - 40lbs 8*4
          Leg Exts - 55kg 20*8
          Hamstring Curls - bw 20*3
          Hammer Curls - 80lbs 8*3

          135 moved so easily that coach called for an additional single at 145kg. Wasn't fully prepared for that, and it might have been a tad high, but it moved easily.

          Continue to do my regular warm-up, as well as the leg extensions. My knee(s) feels much better for the attention to the Quad work...who knew?!?!

          Hoping to get lucky tonight and be one of the fortunate few who get to go to Raw Natls...as long as my internet connection doesn't shit the bed!!!

            Good luck, Chas. Looks like I'll have to wait until 2022...

                2nd Cycle - Week Two reps/sets

                Normal Warm-Up: Airdyne, leg work, band pull aparts...

                Bench - 50kg 5*3, 60kg 3*3, 70kg 3*2, 80kg 2*2, 87.5kg *1
                Bench - 77.5kg *5
                Bench - 72.5kg 5*2
                Close Grip - 62.5kg 10*3

                Dumbbell Incline - 60lbs *6, *6, *7

                Hammer Curls - 50lbs 20*6
                Leg Extensions - 60kg 20*5

                Bar moved slowly, but I felt well in control of each rep.

                A little ambitious with the Incline Bench at 60lbs...if we had 55's it would have worked.

                Supers setted the Dips and Curls...

                Oh, I forgot...I'm going to Natls in June. LET'S DO THIS!!!

                        2nd Cycle - Week Three reps/sets

                        Squat - 70kg 5*3, 100kg 3*3, 115kg 2*2, 130kg *2, 145kg / 152.5kg *1
                        SSB - 110kg *5
                        SSB - 100kg 5*2

                        In Place Lunge - 36kg 10*3
                        Dumbbell Mid Row - 80lbs 8*4
                        Dumbbell Revs Fly - 45lbs 8*4

                        Leg Ext (l/r) - 70kg 20*5
                        Hamstring Curls - 20*5

                        Not the best Squat session: 145 moved poorly, and 152.5 was a tad high.

                        Coach is asking me to get used to bigger jumps between weights. Instead of 5 to 7.5kg jumps, he wants me to get used to 10 -15kg jumps. That may have been the issue at 145kg. That jump from 130 to 145 was the first bite of this new apple.

                          Bench - 50kg 5*3, 60kg 3*3, 70kg 2*3, 80kg *2, 85 / 90kg *1
                          Bench - 80kg *5
                          Bench - 75kg 5*2
                          Close Grip - 65kg 10*3

                          Dumbbell Incline Bench - 60lbs *8, 9, 9
                          Dips - +12kg 10*3

                          Hammer Curls - 50lbs 20*6

                          Really solid session, everything moved well...especially the Close Grip work.

                          Sneaking up on hitting my sets of Dumbbell Incline work with the 60s.

                          Blew the arms up with the supersetting of tri's and bi's...they were burning like never before.

                            Deads - 165kg *5
                            Deads - 155kg 5*2
                            Below Knee Big Wheel Pulls - 173kg 8*2

                            Single Leg RDL - 28kg 12*3

                            Leg Extensions (l/r) - 50kg 30*3

                            Top single at 200kg was a little ugly, but it moved well, and there was more if needed.

                            A goodly amount of volume, and still in the correct RPE wheelhouse.

                            Those Big Wheel Pulls are the ticket back to 227.5kg and beyond...

                              Nordic Hamstring Curls - bw 10*3

                              Good way to end the week. Feeling good, not beat up...

                              Weight is still under 200lbs. Not too concerned that something is going on medically. I attribute the lack of movement upwards to the additional assistance work, and not adjusting my caloric intake accordingly. That, and I hate to eat...

                              Off to eat something dense...

                                2nd Cycle - Week Four reps/sets

                                Squat - 70kg 6*4, 90kg 4*3, 110kg 3*2, 130kg*2, 145 / 155kg *1
                                SSB - 115kg *5
                                SSB - 105kg 5*2
                                In PLace Lunge - 32kg 10*3
                                Dumbbell Mid Row - 80lbs 8*4
                                Nordic Hamstring Curls - bw 10*3
                                Leg Ext (l/r) - 70kg 10*10

                                Not a bad way to end week four. 155kg was a tad high due to lack of confidence about hitting the hole and coming out of it.

                                That said, it didn't feel as hard as it looked. In training I'm within 10% of my meet max. June could be interesting if my knee holds up.
