Today...

Bench Press

60kg x 5
80kg x 5
100kg x 1,1,1,1,1
105kg x 1
110kg x 1
115kg x 1
120kg x 1
125kg x fail

Squat

70kg x 5
100kg x 3
120kg x 3
150kg x 2
160kg x 1
170kg x 1
180kg x 1
200kg x fail

Deadlift

160kg x 3
180kg x 2
200kg x 1
220kg x 1
240kg x 1
250kg x fail

Analysis: Need to remind myself that it's a marathon, not a sprint. I've put 60kg on my total since April, and the gains won't keep coming weekly now.
April PR's: 150/105/215. September PR's: 190/120/240.
I need more volume to push myself to the next level. I'm very near all the failed weights above, I just need to put the groundwork in. Milestones I want to hit:

Squat: 160kg x 5 x 5, 170kg x 5 x 3, 180kg x 5 x 2. That will put 200kg in the bag.
Bench: Fuck off bench. My bench is so shit. I don't even know what to do with it.
Deadlift: 210kg x 10 x 1, 215kg x 10 x 1, 220kg x 10 x 1

I think.

Ok. Gonna run a bout of Bryce Lanes Have it All starting tomorrow.

I reckon I'll start around the following:

Squat: 140kg
Bench: 100kg
Deficit deadlift: 170kg
Push press: 90kg

I'm going to aim to hit the following:

Squat: 160kg 50/20
Deficit dead: 190kg 50/20
Bench: 110kg 50/20
Push Press: 100kg 50/20

After I've done that ill figure out the next steps.

If you`ve chosen wrong starting weights it can be a bit of a struggle.Did that once (with the press) and then 20 minutes seemed to just fly by (not the reps though).
Will be interesting following this.

Hmm. Bench was surprisingly difficult. First ten minutes I did triples on the minute, then switched to doubles on set 11. I had to put elbow sleeves on part way through because my elbows were complaining a little. Started on RPE 6-7, ended with RPE 10.

Deficits were ok, I did 20 doubles. First ten were very easy, the second ten only started to get hard because of lower back pump. Same RPE as bench.

You`ll probably have to buy new jeans if you keep that squatting up you know.

Some bodybuilding shit. Fuck off home.

First time squatting in over a week, figured I would be all fresh. Back was fucked from deadlifts the other day.

Undergoing an intense amount of stress at work. Currently trying to turn around a commission that's losing us hundreds of thousands in fees, and just had two competing job offers. Part of me wants to drop the gym for a while and focus on work, but part of me doesn't.

Ugh.

Don`t you think that the gym will help you with the job related stress? It sure does for me (I might be tired when I get to the garage,but it feels a lot better after)?

Bobby, it's not so much the stress, but more the related affects of that. I only have time to eat when I get home from work, I'm physically and mentally exhausted in the evenings, and I'm averaging between 4-6 hours sleep a night.

Fuck. Forget what I wrote above.

Need to go back to building a solid base. I need around 8 weeks of 5x5 with 70-80% weights.

As an aside, some good news.

Been working on a huge commission at work lately. As some background, I joined my current firm to do a year in industry between my second and third year of university. Made the unusual request to continue working two days a week during my final year. So even though I've just graduated, I'm also part way through my third year at this firm.

Anyway I've been working on this commission, and I've just heard that I'm being tipped to be guided into a leadership position on the commission in the next 2-3 years, due to the work I've put in so far. This particular client brought in 500k of fees this year, and there's over 1.5m of fees already guaranteed for next year, with a further 750k forecasted. It's being tipped as the client to watch within the organisation. A leadership role on a client like this, at my level, would be unheard of in this firm, and would be a solid push in the direction that I'm shooting for.

At the same time, I've been approached by two other rival firms, both offering substantially more money, and one offering a title which at least on paper, is only usually achievable 2-4 years after graduating. I graduated in June. Although my field is nothing to do with accounting or audit, one of the firms is in the Top Four.

Not entirely sure what I'll do for now, but at least work is going well, if the gym isn't.
