Day 3, squat, deadlift...again!

Squats: 350x3x5

Deadlift: 340x3x4

Was in serious DOMS all day, unsure about how the workout would go...rocked it though..all sets and reps felt great. My only complaint in this gym I have to train at temporarily, while being a very nice gym (like all army gyms normally are), they do not allow chalk...so my grip was slippong slightly..o well.

Day off tomorrow, thank God!

Defying gravity week #1, day#4

Squat: 370x3x3
Felt superstrong, great sets

Deadlift:
360x3x2

Was fortunate enough to have a powerlifter in the gym today. Told me my squat was loolking good and strong, and that I should compete (great ego boost), also he helped me lock in proper conventional deadlift form...I am doing it right now!!!

Yes, I agree, it felt much much better than Tuesday's bench. I know it was on the program, but I did a relatively heavy single before my 5X5 volume. I only did this because I have a meet soon. I may add in a single or two like that this week as well, just for your information

Sounds good! I have not changed anything yet (i made one tweak, ill explain below), and dont plan on it. This week was rough, but we made it through.

-my only "tweak" is to add 1-2 assistance exercises per workout, depending how I feel. I dont even log them, but I have found my body responds slightly better, to a slightly higher volume. I add light assistance such as BW dips or chins and light push press. 1 exercise per squat/deadlift workout and 1-2 per bench workout depending how I feel...the assistance is always lift specific. If I start getting burned out, since I workout in the mornings w/ the army as well, I will stop this..but for now, i am making excellent gains, so I wont fix whats not broke!

Week #2, day #3

Squat: 370x3x4

Felt great. I am getting strong. Great form throughout. Also started to wrap my knees on the heavy sets, feels better. I am also iin georgia for school...I had a guy tell me today I shoud compete in a raw event in jan cuz I'd beat most people...huge ego boost!!!

Deadlift:
360x3x3

Great as well, my mechanics are really coming along and this lift is feeling better, also feels like I am getting stronger. A different guy said today I made it look easy...again, cloud 9!!! Haha

Edit: also, in other news...I just found out that on Nov. 1 I will be pinned and promoted to Staff Sergeant in the Army!!! I'm pumped, I've worked hard for this!

All in all, so far, so good...wish I could post vids, but I have no way to at the moment

Week#2, day#4

Squat:
380x4x3

Deadlift:
380x3x1

Continually feeling stronger. One thing that sucks about being at an army school is the fact I can only get 3 solid meals in...after consulting with WM on my nutrition, we decided that bcaa and gatorade with pb and j throughout the day is my best shot at not going catabolic...I can happily report that after 2 weeks of training twice/day (army high intensity pt in morn. Lift at night) I am, maintaining my weight, may have even put on a lb or two. (Unsure exactly as 2 diff. Scales have been used)!!!
