Squat
150x5
180x3
210x1
225x20 PR
Missed a few of your workouts but saw the 20 rep squat set. Great work!

Rep 15 is about where I want to give up squatting forever.

Keep on crushing it!

Thanks BTB! It was a brutal set, but the payoff was worth it. I didn't get into breathing-squats mode until after rep 15 which was actually surprising to me. I would never actually want to take on the full program though, but once or twice here and there isn't too bad.

I recently took a break from heavy squats. I had been ramming 405 almost the entire year in 2010 and I couldn't get past 440x5 no matter what I did.

So I moved to 20 rep squats for the last 2-3 months. That's the longest I've ever ran them, and that's about the longest I ever want to run them. I have a bit of asthma and my body never really adapted to them.

All in all I prefer 1-3 rep squat sets

From trolling around on forums it seems that a lot of people make the best gains using 1-3 reps per set on squats. I'd like to try that at some point, but with the programs that utilize this rep method being so free form, I would have no clue how to progress. Like how would I know when to set a PR, or go balls to the wall on what day. I'm probably not at that point in my training life yet I suppose.

One thing I've found, and I can't say this applies to anyone other than me, is that if I do too many low rep sets or high rep sets without some mid-range work (4-10 reps) I feel I get weaker. I have weak hamstrings though, and I feel they respond best to mid-range rep work.

But when going 400+ I really hate reps above one. The eccentrics kill me.

Deadlift deload day. Started teaching my little bro how to deadlift and putting him on the PTTP program for just deads. Its all he can do and if he can get stronger with deads, I'm hoping it will transfer into strength for the bench and squat. Which he can barely do with the bar.

Deadlifts
145x5
185x5
220x5
Easy. No sweat.

Good Mornings
95x10
95x10
95x10
Focused on getting nice strict reps and really hitting depth while staying tight. Feel this in my hams already like a mother.

Leg Raises
BWx10
BWx10
BWx10
Getting much stronger on these. Definitely helping my ab strength.

Nice quick day. Not too much to report. Got to get going on my homework though. Physics sucks.

Default Press Deload

So yeah, press deload today. Easy. Weights were actually pathetically low. Anyways, I'm tired of being a fat f**k so I am adding in some conditioning each day after lifting and going to progress to at least 6 times a week. Started light(ish) and will work up with more reps/sets.

Press
65x5
80x5
95x5
Easy. So ready for volume week.

Incline Press
65x5
85x5
100x5
Same.

Chins
BWx8
BWx5
BWx4
Not really progressing on these, may add another set or something.

Burpees
BWx9
BWx10
BWx10
The goal for these is repsx3=target time. So goal is 10 reps, so I had 30 sec to do each set. Don't know what happened with the first one, kinda was just getting a feel for it. Going to try for 3x10 then add a set. Goal is 100 in 5 min.
