Tann,
I thought I was the only one who felt that way with the OHP...my second set is always easier than my first.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Even my second rep of each set feels better than the first

It's probably because you are not using the stretch reflex on your fist rep because you are pressing it from a dead stop.

Thanks Nik, and yes, that's probably right about the stretch reflex.

Friday

Very sultry weather here today. Sticky, one might call it. Oppressive. Muggy. Was soaked in sweat from the minute I got in there. I was hoping to reverse my recent squatting performance, and today was in fact a bit better. However, they are troubling my back much more than before I started dieting. I think as my strength has dropped I'm losing form.

Anyway.

Squats

Warm ups
145 (320) X 3
155 (342) X 3
165 (364) X 3
175 (386) X 3

DB Bulgarian split squats

Here I really lowered the platform for the back leg, so this was close to a lunge. I wanted to do these with a TUT emphasis, but I was having problems keeping balance and I just couldn't do them slowly

18 (40) per hand X 8

One legged leg press

I find it hard to connect with this exercise, but I thought I'd give it a try. I can't take two legged ones close to failure for safety reasons.

160 (353) X 8

Leg extensions

A satisfying exercise, but my knee was crunching like bubble pack.

"7" X 10 + partial reps.

I dont know about you Tann, but when I train in the heat, I have to shorten it up a bit....the heat drains the strength right out of me......

That's my main issue with squat reps these days. My lower back seems to be noticeably weaker. Nothing dramatic but it is noticeable.

Sunday

Strength was good on chins/pull ups, but down a bit on bench. Couldn't really do shoulders as I've aggravated an old injury doing machine presses (proving to myself I could do the whole stack because I saw some guy twice my size doing it I just never, ever, ever learn any sense). Felt nauseous throughout session again for some reason.

Bench Press

Warm ups
132.5 (292) X 5
132.5 (292) X 4
132.5 (292) X 4
132.5 (292) X 4
100 (221) X 13

Neutral grip chin ups

Warm ups
Bodyweight + 10 (22) X 5
Bodyweight + 15 (33) X 5
Bodyweight + 20 (44) X 4
Bodyweight + 25 (55) X 3
Bodyweight X 10

Neutral grip chin ups

I did an additional set with a slower cadence and an attempt to lean right back and pull my chest to the bar. That's pretty much how it stayed: an intention. Managed about six reps.

Seated machine press

The aim here was to reduce the weight and get to 40s time under tension. Used a measly 54kg and got about ten reps and five partials. 35 seconds.

Tried some laterals but the shoulders weren't having it.

Keep hammering away. Your routine will take a few passes to feel right, but it will soon enough.

Thanks JD

Tuesday

A weird workout. Zero strength on deads, but noticeable improvement on fronties. No rhyme or reason to it.

Deadlifts

I pulled 222.5 (492) X 3 on my last deadlift workout. I went in feeling strong and ready to go. I thought 230 (507) X 3 would be possible today. And indeed, 200 (442) felt like nothing, so I jumped to 230. It was horrible! It felt about 40 kg more, and I couldn't even hold onto the bar at the top. I had to break out the straps and go for some singles.

A 30kg jump from warm ups is too much for me, but I don't think a smaller jump would have helped that much.

Warm ups
160 (350) X 2
200 (442) X 1
230 (507) X 1
Straps on
230 (507) X 1
230 (507) X 1
230 (507) X 1

Front squats

Not expecting too much after the performance on deadlifts, but these were good. All felt solid, and the 145 (320) X 2 was tough but comfortable

60 (132) X 5
100 (221) X 3
120 (265) X 3
Belt on
140 (308) X 2
145 (320) X 2

Reverse hypers and hypers

These are exercises that never go well. I wish we had decent machines for these. As things stand, it was a lot of fannying around for not much reward. A lower back pump and squashed gonads were the main effects.
