5/14: Deadlift -> GZCL, but maybe not for long?
Grade: D

Glute Bridge/Hip Aduction/OHD Squat: 1 set

Deadlift
135x5
185x5
225x3
275x3
315x3
365x2
405x1
425x3 -> felt terrible
415x3 -> not much better
405 x 3 x 3 -> hip drive on these felt decent but they were lot harder than they should have been

Front Squat: 190 x 3 x 8 -> knees stayed out; up to 195 next time

Snatch Grip Deads: 225 x 3 x 10 -> good hip drive; really destroyed the back

BB Good Morning (squat width and stance): 120 x 3 x 10 -> excellent hip drive; up to 125 next time

DB Bulgarian Split Squats: 40 x 3 x 10 each leg -> deep stretch, but I my groin felt a bit off afterwards

Kneeling Ab Wheel: bw x 16, 15

Thoughts: Today’s workout, at least the deadlift portion, did not go well at all – probably too much pulling yesterday, also I’m not sure if GZCL is for me at the moment; with transitioning from college to the real world, I may need to switch to a non-linear periodization template that prevents me from getting wrapped up in the nitty gritty.

Hey brother, not sure I'm sold/recovering enough from the GZCL method.
I kinda want to switch routines.

Switch it up! You are the one who can tell best how you're reacting to a routine! If its beating you up, alter it, or dump it

Very true. Not sure what routine I should pick though. Here's what I'm looking for

1.) 4-5 days per week
2.) Non-excel based progression scheme for the major lifts - ie not 5/3/1 or GZCL
3.) Low rep sets for the big 4 (Deadlift, Bench, Squat, OHP)
4.) Moderate/Higher rep accessory work
5.) Weak points
Muscle Size: shoulders; traps; upper back (always lol); arms
Muscle Strength: hip drive on squat/dead; off-chest sticking point on bench (ie delts)

I've been looking at the PHAT methodology. I think my CNS and body needs a break from the high intensity/load lifting for relatively high volume.

I realize what happens is I get all wrapped up in excel spreadsheets in charts when I need to just focus on the main lifts with adequate volume.
For example, instead of Xlbs at X% for X reps, I'd rather have a layout telling me, "When you hit X sets of X reps with X weight, increase the load"

I think I'm going to run a routine based on the PHAT routine methodology. Stay tuned for the layout as the feedback would be appreciated
