Thanks J. I've definitely noticed a huge difference. It's all joints aching with gear, and very little traditional muscle soreness.

I'm also stuck on bench because I train alone. I'm not sure if my shoulders hurt more from being in gear or from having to unrack my weights myself. I think that if I had people to unrack the bar for me I'd have already gotten 400+ in my shirt.

Finally did some deadlifting today. I don't enjoy deadlifting as much as squatting, but I need to do it more. I also got the chance to try deadlifting in my squat suit. Here's how it went;

Deadlift (s=sumo, c=conventional)-
c 135x8
s 135x5
s 225x3
c 225x3

Add suit and belt, straps down-
s 315x2
c 315x2
s 385x2 (I struggled with this, so I gave up on sumo at this point. All following sets are convnentional)
385x2
435x1

Straps up-
485x1
515x1
535x0
435x3

Deadlifting in my squat suit is going to take some work. I have to fight the suit to get into position, but it does help quite a bit at the bottom. With a little more work I should be able to get more out of it. My shoulders are also sore from benching yesterday which hurt my deadlift performance a little.

Squat with suit and belt, straps down-
135x3
225x3
315x2
365x2
405x2

Straps up-
435x1
435x2

Add knee wraps-
435x2

Raw squat, belt only-
385x1

I didn't have much left in the tank after deadlifts. As soon as I got to 435 on squats I knew I didn't want to push it any further. The 385 raw really hit my hips in a bad way. Losing the support of the suit combined with already being tired to leave me feeling quite weak.

I'm also having an issue with the tendon that runs under my right heal. Ever since I did some running and sprints Tuesday morning it's been hurting. Bad. Every morning I'm limping around, and the pain if I put any weight on my heal is almost unbearable. Lifting doesn't aggravate it unless it's already hurting from running, which it is. After my last sets of squats with 435 it started hurting a lot, which is one of the reasons I didn't go any further.

I modified my rack today. Wide grip? No problem.

Like a boss.

Having a wider rack made all the difference in the world, just like I thought it would.

Remember, these numbers are still done alone with no hand off. I had to unrack all these lifts myself.

Bench-
45x5
135x5
185x5
225x3

Add shirt-
275x1 no touch
315x1 no touch
365x1
385x1
415x1 PR
435x1 PR

I figured out a lot today. I realized that as the weights get heavier, it's much easier to touch. I know, that's obvious, but it makes a HUGE difference. To get anything under 400 to touch I have to cave in a little and rock my head forwards. But once the weights get over 400 I don't have to do that anymore. I was able to go back to my normal raw form and keep my belly and chest up. This signifigantly shortened my stroke and made it much easier to stay in the groove. The 415 was easier than the 365 because I didn't have to manipulate my form to get the weights to touch.

These lifts were also done with the shirt as un-jacked as possible. This is because I can't unrack the weights myself if the shirt is jacked. If I were to tug it down and not seat the arms all the way along with getting a hand off I bet I could go over 455 no problem.

If I feel good tomorrow I may try to get a new equipped squat PR.

The PR train keeps 'a rollin' along.

Squat-
45x5
45x5 (Hips felt tight. I took my time on warmups.)
135x5
135x5
225x3

Suit on, belt on, straps down-
315x3
365x2
405x2

Straps up, add knee wraps-
455x1
485x1
530x1 PR

Raw squat, belt and knee wraps-
385x4 PR

Raw squat, no belt, no wraps-
315x1*

The 530 was every single weight I own. If I had a power rack and more weights I would have put up 545, or at least attempted it. I still feel like I haven't really pushed myself with my gear on. I can move more, I just need the right setting. I'm also not feeling the straps tighten on my suit like I was the first time I put it on. I think I need to shorten the straps a little, but for now I'm not going to worry about it.

*My goal here was to break my personal record of 10 reps with 315, but as soon as I reached the bottom I felt a twinge in my left hip. I already had 2 PR's today, so I racked it and called it a day.

You're going to be at a 1500 total before you know it at this rate.

My rate of improvement will be slowing soon, as my current cycle will be ending in a matter of days. Hopefully I can add another 10 solid pounds to each lift, then get on with PCT.

I'm going to have to take my time after this cycle. I rushed my PCT last time because I wanted to get back on, so this time I need to really make sure my body has recovered before I plan another cycle.

I'm looking at probably a little over a year from now before I can realisticly hope for a raw 1500 total, although I may also drop some weight and lower my numerical expectations accordingly, as I'm having a bit of trouble with Army PT at my current bodyweight.
