I've got family in town for a visit, and I'm not sufficiently hard-hearted to keep them from interfering with my recovery, so I'm attempting a lower-intensity, higher-frequency approach for a while. I might stick with it; my aches, pains, and 3 kids remind me daily I'm not getting any younger.

7JUL (Am):
Bench Press: 135x5, 185x5, 3x245x5
Squat: 135x5, 225x5, 3x285x5

Light recovery work today.
8JUL:
Treadmill: walk/run warmup
1H Kettlebell Swing/Goblet SQT/1H Floor Press: 2x20x16kg

Pull-ups: Bodyweight x 3/2/1/1

I used to be good at pull-ups for a bigger guy. I guess I need to emphasize them more.

I shall now log cardio efforts.
9JUL (AM):
Bike Commute: Modified my route to get some more time on the bike. 11 Miles, 44 Minutes, Average HR: 141

Poor route selection made this effort a little short. I always forget how much a pack of work gear slows me down.

9JUL (PM) :
Pull-ups : Bodyweight x 3/2/1/1

10JUL:
Pull-ups: Bodyweight x 3/2/2/1

Rest day except for pull-ups.

Today's workout was cut short because of work... It doesn't help that the gym most convenient to my workplace keeps the 2.5lb plates under lock and key...

31OCT: OHP 45x4, 135x3, 175x2, 190x 3/3/3
DL 315x3, 365x3, 405x3

It's probably time to either back off and adopt slower progression on OHP... ](*,)

3NOV:
BENCH: 45x5, 135x4, 225x3, 320x3/3/4
SQUAT: 45x5, 135x4, 225x3, 315x2; had to cut this one short...

Chose to begin a peaking program that's worked for me in the past; hopefully retest maxes with a mock meet early Jan.

5NOV:
SQUAT: 45x4, 135x5, 225x3, 295x2, 330x6/6/6/4/4/4/4/3/3/2/2; this program has much volume over the first few squat sessions...

6NOV:
BENCH: 200x5, 240x4, 280x2, 320x2/2/2/2/2, 240x12

Felt nowhere near as brutal as last Monday. Either I'm adjusting quickly, or creatine hydrochloride is straight up magick. I took a different pre-workout this session. Slightly more caffeine plus 1 gram of the creatine.
