Progress Feb 5th to Feb 11th

Feb 5th

Squat 3×5 @215; (15# below seminar deload)

Press 3×5 @135; 1 Plate!!

Deadlift 1×5 @315; 3 Plate!!! Still using double overhand hook grip; straps may be in my future though because I don’t care for mixed grip.

Started greasing the groove on Chin Ups. I’ve gained 15 lbs since I started SS Progression and haven’t done chinups in a long while…. gotta lotta work to do.

14th Session after seminar deload…

Two mini milestones tonight on my slow barbell progression. Overhead Press 5RM with 1 plate; Deadlift 5RM with 3 Plates.
The best part? I didn’t have to watch almost the entire first half of the Super Bowl.

Feb 7th

Squat 3×5 @225; (5# below seminar deload)

Bench 3×5 @185;

Greasing the groove on Chin Ups. Several sets of “fat man pullups” under the barbell, then incrementally harder ring rows sets. 40 total reps.

15th Session after seminar deload…

Back to two plates on the Squat, where I was just over a month ago before the deload after the Squat Seminar.

Feb 9th

Squat 3×5 @230; (back to top weight pre-seminar… feels lighter this time around… however to get the bodyweight squat, I seem to be chasing my bodyweight gains simultaneously)

Press 3×5 @140; (I think Presses may be the most intense isometric contraction that the glutes see… but the squeeze does get that weight up!)

Deadlift 1×5 @325; (The Pull was a grind. It’s my last pull in the next 9 days until I get back from traveling though).

BW 243 lbs; 6’2″; age 51

I am feeling a bit toasted since the past month I’ve worked out every two days and performed deadlifts every workout as well, except the last one. A week away from the barbell may do me good.

Feb 11th

Squat 3×5 @235;

Bench 3×5 @190;

BW 243 lbs; 6’2″; age 51

Last workout until next Saturday when I get back from traveling. Will be a nice break.
