Default Got2Squat goes TM

I finished up novice progression end of November 2014, which marked 5 months of strength training. Decided to train using the Texas Method for as long as it will work. Beginning lifts I used to start off were(based on last novice 3x5):
Squat 300x5
DL 360 x 5
Bench 190 x 5
Press: 122.5 x 5
BB Row(Pendlay) 200 x 5

These lifts were used for my first intensity day of 1x5, which offered a small deload. Caught the flu Christmas night which stalled progress for about 3 weeks.

1/24/2015 Intensity Day
Squat:
320x5

Bench:
205x5 PR
235x1 PR
245x0

Deadlift: Felt like trying heavy singles for the first time
365x1
405x1 first time pulling 4 plates +10 PR
415x1 +20 PR
425x1 all reps over/under with chalk and belt +30 PR

Weighted dips:
45x12, 12

Tuesday 1/27/2015 Volume day
Squats:
290 5x5

Bench:
195x4...this felt REALLY heavy, and shouldn't have, so:
185 4x5

SLDL:
275x5

Skipped light day due to work schedule

Saturday 1/31/2015 Intensity day
Squat:
325x5 PR
275 2x5

Bench:
210x5 PR
175 2x8

DL:
370x5 PR

Tuesday 2/3/2015 Volume Day

Squats:
295 5x5 +5 PR
These were hard enough that I may not go up five pounds next week for volume day. Unless intensity day is a breeze and I am feeling exceptionally strong.

Bench:
195 5x5 +5 PR These felt ok but not perfect. Some lingering fatigue in my shoulders from a brutal shift Saturday night following my Intensity workout.

SLDL:

285 3x5 +10 This is not a max effort lift so won't track PR's on this one. Challenging for the grip though, which is odd as I had no grip issue pulling 425. I suppose 15 reps double overhand is different than one rep o/u.

Dips:
BW x 15 Started with bodyweight to test my shoulders, they felt ok so:
40 x 12 (machine)....went to the YMCA for a change of pace
50 x 14 (machine)

I was pretty tired by this point so decided not to do chins. I don't feel like I am doing them enough though so need to work on that.

strong starting lifts for TM

you should do well on the program.

setting PRs out of the gate isn't bad at all!

Thursday 2/5/2015 Light day

Squats:
225 2x5
Previously, I had started increasing weight a little bit and doing 3 sets on light day. But today I could tell I was far from recovered from Monday's workout; legs sore, lower back fatigued, etc.

Press:
130 x 5
135 x 5
135 x 4 RPE 10 Not feeling very strong today

Weighted Chins:
35 3x8

Was going to do weighted dips with 45 lbs. On the first rep down, chest and shoulders said no.

Really overdid things with my shoulder on Thursday's Presses. I normally press heavy on my light day, since that is the only day I press. But I was really wiped out and should have actually dropped weight and done a lighter day. I might take it easy on Bench tomorrow for intensity day, just have to see how I feel.

Friday, 2/6/2015
HIIT
2 minute warmup
10 seconds on, 50 seconds off, 6 cycles
3 minute cooldown
In and out of the in ten minutes. Have not bought a Schwinn Airdyne yet to use at home.

I had to pace my self to 85-90% max output in order to get past the first few cycles. First two times I did HIIT(this is my third session), I was totally wiped after the third cycle and killed myself to get two more. I would like to build up to 7 cycles, then increase intensity towards 100% as I am able to.

Saturday 2/7/2015 Intensity day

Squat:
330x5 +5 PR

Bench:
215x5 +5 PR
175x6 paused

Deadlift:
375x5 +5 PR
325x5
325x4 straps, just to try them....uggh

BB Curls: (no chins, no dips, shoulder really needs some recovery)
85 2x10

I had my heart set on knocking out 3-4 back off sets on bench to really get some extra chest/tricep work in, but decided to err on the side of caution and live to fight another day. Overall can't complain about PR'ing all three lifts, so I'll take it.
