Thanks guys though today was another level of suck. I had 5 days off so I should have been well rested. I did not eat all that well and slept less then perfectly for 2-3 of those days but surely that would not account for a 15-20% drop off in performance like I had today? Or perhaps it would since we all have different reactions to different things.

Wednesday 20 June
Squats
60x5
70x5
80x5
90x5
100(220)x5
This was appalling and I was lucky to make the reps. 15kg below my 5 rep best so this was beyond garbage

Bench
50x5
60x5
70x5
80x5
90(198)x5
Felt reasonable.

Pendlay Row
40x5
47.5x5
55x5
62.5x5
70(154)x5
Comfortable to be fair.

Chins B/W
6, 4, 3 -Nothing left on sets 2 + 3

Double Hammer Curls
17.5 (39)x8
17.5x8

Decline sit ups + 25kg: 2 x 12
Russian Twist + 12.5kg: 2 x 12

Awful session, the sooner I forget it the better.

2-3 days of poor sleep could easily account for a less than stellar session...I still think it looks great though

I agree with 5kg , that poor diet for the few days and also a change to how you are lifting would contribute,

When changing prograns I never worry about the first two weeks till my body adjusts.

You'll bounce back. I took 3 days off and my performance plummeted.

I experienced the same thing after a 4-5 day rest once. Got in feeling jacked and found that warmups were feeling heavy and my form was all over the place. On that occasion, when training the day after i really smoked it and hit PRs. Come back stronger tomorrow mate!

Crappy sessions are often followed up by good ones. Rest and get back to it with vigor.

Thanks gang and yeah, today was better. Aided no doubt by food, rest and the establishment of my usual routine. Of course, no squats also helps!
Anything over a double on deadlift feels like cardio!

Friday 22 June
Deadlift
75x5
90x5
105x5
120x5
135(297) x 5 - Pretty comfortable though tiring which was the only challenge today.

Power Cleans
60x3
67.5x3
75(165)x3 Form flat out stank but the bar went up easy enough.

Strict Press
35x5
40x5
45x5
50(110) x 5
Not done more than 55kg for 5 reps strict which is poor since my push press is some 20kg better for reps. This was easy though.

Shrugs
100x8
100x8
110x8
These were traditional shrugs. May do dynamic again next week as I used Versa Gripps and they were good. Makes a helluva difference, even at this relatively low weight.

Close Grip Bench
80 (176) x8
80x7

Cardio:
Thursday - 40 flights of stairs
Today - 20 flights of stairs as cooldown.
