          Central x Stress: @ 1.36

          Notes: went up a little this week but it felt ok. i noticed on the video it looks like im leaning over excessively in order to get depth, since ive been keeping my knees closer (rather than shoving them out). the reason ive been keeping them more together is that it alleviates my hip tendonitis but its not a good habit.

          Notes: there is no pain/discomfort with 185 whatsoever. a little with 200+. i think its gonna take a while to mitigate the aches and pains under this new load reduction protocol

            --> Great week of training. Lower RPEs are working for me as I feel less pressure, more motivation, and the movement itself feels better. My shoulder and hips are still achy but I think by meet time they will be close to 100% if I keep the fatigue in check.

                Central x Stress: @ 1.88

                Notes: top single went well today. i really pulled with a slow, controlled confidence instead of spazing out and kicking the bar forward. i just wish i could say that i was doing this with 495 since its been like 5 years now. but thats what i get for taking time off, not staying consistent and program hopping. down sets easy . really working on getting my shoulders out in front of the bar so i can stretch my hammies, then slightly rocking back to midfoot while pulling slack from the bar, then controlled explosion straight up by leg pressing the floor (while maintaining hamstring tension).

                3ct Pause Bench Press

                175lbs x 4 @ 6
                185lbs x 4 @ 7
                195lbs x 4 @ 8
                175lbs x 4 @ 6

                Total x Stress: @ 2.61,
                Central x Stress: @ 2.14

                Notes: fairly easy, but really focusing on bring my chest up to meet the bar, reducing ROM. also moved grip out (again) to ring finger on marks. this seems to be where my shoulder tolerates the movement best, although it may be slightly weaker than a more narrow grip, but i will adapt.

                High Bar Squat with no belt

                135lbs x 10 @ 5
                135lbs x 10 @ 5
                135lbs x 10 @ 5
                Total x Stress: @ 1.09,
                Central x Stress: @ 0.51

                Notes: there is really no way to gauge rpe here. this was after 12 sets of comp DL and paused benching and one day after comp squatting, with no sleeves or belt and different bar placement than im used to. 185 felt like 315 so im just doing one 1PL8 lol. dont care. the little amount of benefit im going to get from this 3rd slot accessory does not make it worth the risk of going heavier and burning out. also, i refuse to train for more than 90 minutes. so for 3rd slots i will be dropping upper body to 65lbs and 95lbs for 10 reps and lower body 3rd slots to 135 for 10 reps. really easy but they are basically just a stretch to end the day

                  Central x Stress: @ 0.81

                  Notes: i was able to push the knees out a little more on these and keep my hips/back locked bc it was very submaximal weight. too much toe angle aggravates my hip so if I just use a very slight toe angle, but still push the knees out (spread the floor) this seems to help

                        --> overall session went well, i felt strong and explosive. Did this right before ditching out to go camping for 2 nights in Red Feather with the family. I slept like dog shit but it was super fun.

                            Notes: these went well and felt better than yesterdays squats. top single was fairly crisp. day 2 is always better than day 1. if i ever have to build my own program i may be doing light easy variation for my day 1, then comps towards the end of the week.

                            Notes: shoulder doing pretty well, actually at this point it feels secondary to my hip tendonitis

                              Notes: felt pretty good today, still trying to push the knees out more in the hole to activate posterior. it irritates the hips so i have a tendency to keep knees forward
