    Was debating doing 2 board for this day but decided to see how the pec holds up. Pecs seemed fine but had a bit of an issue with scapula stability on right side.

    No Jokers because I wasn't feeling it.

    Forgot to mention the bench was starfish on Thursday.

    Warm-up:
    Rolling
    KB swing/snatch

    Deadlift (TM 175kg):
    Warm-up
    3x122.5kg
    3x140kg
    10x157.5kg (3+) 5 reps DOH
    12x122.5kg (FSL)

    SSB Squat - 5x5 60kg
    Leg curl - 3x12 15kg

    Trained earlier than I have been since the gyms closed. Felt a bit rough at first but weight moved fine. Grip is a bit average as I'm using a power bar instead of a Texas DL bar, which is a bit thicker. That, and I have to put the bar down a bit softer in the garage.

    Didn't know what else to do after deads so tried some more squats with different foot positions and bracing. Wider felt better but not great. Maybe I'll just smash myself with more FSL deads instead next time.

    Felt like I was hit by a truck last night, slept like a log, and still felt rough this morning. Wasn't super keen to train. Weight moved fine and grip was strong, but I felt dead after deadlifts.

    Bench Press (TM 105kg):
    Warmup
    5x80kg
    3x90kg
    8x100kg (1+)
    2x10 80kg (FSL)

    Axle OHP - 5x10 50kg
    Seated row (wide) - 5x10 40kg

    Felt a bit better than expected given the lack of benching until this program started.
    Thinking I'll save Jokers for the second wave of the 6 week block.

    Deadlift (TM 175kg):
    Warm-up
    5x132.5kg
    3x150kg
    8x167.5 (1+) (5 DOH)
    2x5 132.5kg (FSL)

    Leg curl - 3x15 20kg
    Leg ext. - 2x25 20kg

    Mentally feeling on point and keen to lift some shit, but body was groggy and not keen. Grip felt pretty decent, at least way better than it has on this bar.

    Right lat feels a bit off. Need to get stuck into that and possibly drop some volume off them.

    Still trying to gauge what I can get away with while not crashing before a deload. Being sensible for once. What's wrong with me?

    Week 4

    OHP:
    Warm-ups
    3x55kg
    3x62.5kg
    12x70kg (3+)
    17x55kg (FSL)

    Bench (starfish) - 5x5 75kg
    Lat pull down - 3x10 25kg
    Tris push down (narrow) - 3x15 25kg

    Lats still a bit off so made pull downs really light. Press felt pretty decent.
