    Feeling pretty flat. Luckily it's a lower volume week. Biceps need a rest from squats but not sure if I can do any other variations just yet.

    Man you work seriously hard. Don't be too harsh on yourself. Your sessions are pretty bloody awesome. I wish I could get into some serious work again. :)

    Farmers Walk:
    handles
    4 x 67.5kg 16m
    87.5kg x 16m (7.78s)
    87.5kg x 16m (7.2s)
    100kg x 16m (8.69s)
    100kg x 16m (8.05s)

    45 degree hyper - 3x15 yellow band
    SL Leg Press - 4x20 40kg
    Ab roll outs - 3x8

    Was going pretty well until the last set of Farmers. I went to do a distance run with 87.5kg and got a few steps in before my calf fucked out. Few hours later and I'm struggling to walk. By how it's feeling now I think I might have to take a break from squats next week. I'll try some seated good mornings or something probably.

    Upper

    Push ups - 2x10
    Band pull apart - 2x25 yellow band
    Band tris

    Bench Press - 4x5 100kg, 10x100kg
    Pull ups - 5x5 (between bench sets)
    Strict Press - 4x10 55kg

    First couple sets of bench felt a bit off, but the last set smashed through. One breath, averaging 1.7s a rep. OHP felt pretty solid as usual. Calf is a bit better today. I can at least walk on it without limping a lot, but will have to see how it pulls up tomorrow after being on my feet all day today.

    Lower

    Back Squat - 20x120kg
    SSB Good Morning - 3x10 65kg
    SL Leg Press - 4x20 50kg
    Tris push down

    Wasn't super keen on the 20 repper before it (but is anyone ever?), but got through it fine. Forced myself to one breath per rep until about rep 16 when I needed to take a couple between reps and it seemed to make things a little easier somehow. Calf was fine on squats except for the walkout.

    Heavy Upper

    Push ups - 2x10
    Band tris
    Bradford press

    Strict Press:
    bar
    10x40kg
    2x5 60kg
    3x70kg
    2x80kg
    2x85kg
    2x90kg
    2x95kg
    2x100kg (PR)
    15x70kg (PR?)

    Bench Press - 4x6 92.5kg
    Narrow pronated seated row - 3x15 40kg

    Wasn't expecting 100kg today, but I'll take it. I would have been happy with 97.5kg, but couldn't help myself and throw the extra on. Strict axle PR is also 2x100kg so it's not a huge jump or anything, but puts me in a good spot for some future gains (I hope). It's been a long time since I've hit a solid strict PR. Reps over 100kg will be had this year god dammit!

    Decent day. Glutes started to play up on the last few reps of the top set. Probably should have stopped when the pain started. Got a ball into it and front squats felt okay.

    Upper

    warmup:
    pushups 2x10
    band pull apart - 2x25 yellow band

    Bench Press - 4x5 105kg
    Pull ups - 4x5
    Strict Press - 3x10 60kg

    Dropped a set off everything. Somewhat busy weekend and an earlier start and later finish than usual. Biceps feeling a bit off too. May as well save it for heavy 2 board on Thursday. Only a couple weeks til the upper portion of this program finishes. Not sure whether any maxes will be on the cards. See how I feel. I'll work squats into the next program with some high reps at the start and (fingers crossed) drop the reps and up the weight through the program...assuming my injuries don't flare up too bad.

    Mate got into my quad and hamstring with his elbow yesterday. Bit bruised today, but immediately after it felt like I was walking differently. I know my quads are jacked up but holy hell that was painful. I can't get that sort of pressure in a specific area on my own unfortunately.
