Week 5, Monday, 10-31-11
Squat 125, 157.5, 188.75, 220, 250
Bench 125, 157.5, 188.75, 220 250(3)
Row 70, 87.5, 105, 121.25, 140
W.Hypers (2x5) 35, 35
W.Situps (3x10) 35, 35, 35

My last 2 squat reps didn't have great form, but I finished the reps. My hips come up pretty quickly and while my back doesn't bend, i don't stay as upright as I should. I may try a slighter wider stance and really throwing my head/upperback backward into the bar when I come out of the hole.

What ticks me off is that I only got 3 bench reps at 250 (same as Friday). My grip was slightly narrower than usual. B/c I missed the lift, I'll keep 250 as the max until next week (Monday) and see if I get all 5. If I don't, I'll move the bench weight back to those of week 3 and work my way back up.

Week 5, Wednesday, 11-2-11
Squat 125, 157.5, 188.75, 188.75
OH Press 92.5, 111.25, 130, 147.5
Deadlift215, 257.5, 300, 340
Pulldowns (3x8) 10, 11, 11
Calf Raise (3x8) 170, 185, 195
Cble Crunch (3x10) 17, 18, 18

New 5 rep PB in Deadlift (340), and OHP (147.5).

Overall, a great workout. I could've gotten another rep or 2 out of both deadlift and OHP, so I'll be moving up 5 pounds in DL and another 2.5 in OHP. Making real progress in calf raises and crunches too.

Since Wednesday is a light squat day, I figured it was theperfect time to try a wider stance. It was juts an inch or so wider and it felt fine, but with heavier weight I think I'll have to focus on keeping my knees "out".

Btw, I read through the "I hate deadlifting" article and I am wondering if my hips are coming up too fast in the deadlift. Next week I'll use my phone and record my deadlift for peer review here at MAB.

Post it up. A lot of times the deadlift is not being lead by the head, or the eyes are kept down, which allows the hips to creep up.

Week 5 weight: 180.
Lost 0.5 pounds.

Yea, I'm pissed. I just lost the half pound I gained last week. Over the last 4 weeks, I haven't managed to gain a single pound. It's flucuated between 180 and 183, but i always test-weight on friday mornings, fasted, and I weigh the same as I did a month ago. Yes, my lifts are going up, but I've gotta put the pounds on the scale.

I've broken down my diet, macro's, etc. Not including dinner,, I take in 3,585 kcal on workout days and 2,845 kcal on nonworkout days--again, that does not include dinner (usually 500-800 kcal). Perhaps I'm not getting enough calories on the weekends? I'll chart them closely this weekend and see where I end up. I knew the 5x5 would be very taxing on the entire body, but I didn't think it would consume that many more calories than my usual 4 day split.

Time to increase the calories, yet again. I'll be adding 3 tablespoons of EVOO to dinner every day and see where that gets me.

If you bump it might not be a bad idea to bump both days...something like 3785 during workout days and 3045 on non-workout days. Just thinking out loud, and hope I don't sound like I am telling you what to do.

Oh, yeah, I'll be taking the extra 3Ts of EVOO everyday of the week and see how that works.
