Thanks for the info & opinions guys, much appreciated.

Dray - there are a few reasons why I'm not gonna push 5x5 squat for every session, main one is my knee, and fear of re injury. Its fine for now, but I'm paying close attention to my body these days and leaving my ego at the door.
Kinda starting to feel some joint fatigue, its nothing major, But I would rather proceed with caution & make slow progress than no progress because of injury

I will keep going until Christmas as planned, then take stock & see whats best for me

My Goals are pretty Close! Squat 90kg, Deadlift 100kg, Completion Date Dec 25th

Are the squat stands you're looking at just suitable for squats (or only needed for squats) or are they also bench adjustable (height wise)?

Yeah, Steve just mentioned it looks like they have face savers, so probably bench adjustable as well which is great. Do they give a load limit at all? Mine are 100kg each, no way will that be needed, not for me, for one thing my barbell won't take 200kg

Im going to find out how much it holds. previous best squat was 120kg,
my oly weight set is only 140kg, realistically I don't think Im gonna squat 140kg
But I'm going to find out the total weight it can bare

Tonight's training.
not great, but not terrible

Squat 82.5 kg x 5, 5, 5, 5, 3 same weight as last time, but failed tonight, wasn't feeling it during the warm up sets, so didn't add weight

Bench 57.5 kg x 5, 5, 5, 4, 5 , perhaps a de load is in order, no real progress here in while

BB Row 60 kg x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

BB Shrugs 67.5 kg x 16, 15, 18

BB curls 30 kg x 8, 7, 6

Good Mornings 30 kg x 10, 10, 10

Good work syn! Even feeling off you got work accomplished! Could be lots of reasons for slow progress, diet, rest ect. Keep pushing!

Still got some solid work done, mate. That's a win.

Hopefully, you can figure out the sleep, diet and/or other, however. I'm familiar with these things getting in the way at times, like most other lifters I guess.

I doubt this will apply to you, but just as an example, I had no idea that my diet was too low carb (for me), a while back. Eventually got around to adding a few carbs back in, and yep, suddenly a bit more energy to spare.

So IOW, sometimes it can be something you mightn't have thought of straight away.

postponed training this weekend, my right leg in particular had been feeling Fatigued, getting out of the car on a Saturday morning my I noticed that foot, knee hip just started aching, been extremely sore all weekend, going to rest my leg for a few days, and resume upper body training this evening

Annoyed by this, hope its only a minor set back, as things have been going well so far (since the last knee incident)
