So damn busy last week but my final presentation is over and I'll have 10x more time for the gym now. That being said... went today and my shoulder was bothering me still from last week a bit. Still had an OK day.

DB Bench: 45x8, 60x8, 70x8, 80x8, 90x5
BB Incline Bench: 135x10x3
Standing BB OHP: 95x8, 105x5, 105x2
Incline DB Bench: 50x10, 50x8, 50x7 (failure on last two sets)

Didn't want to do any tricep iso work as I was afraid I would hurt my shoulder again.

Good day yesterday:
Squat: 135x8, 225x5, 245x5, 275x3, 295x2 --should probably have more volume here
DL- 135x10, 225x5x4
DB row- 75x10, 75x10, 85x10
Lat pull down

Spent a good 20 minutes stretching too which I think really helped.


Might have an arm day today just for old times.. Lol

Also have terrible tendinitis in both my elbows right now. I believe it's due to the wood splitting I did last weekend and the repetitive motion of throwing logs. ****ing hurts.

Today.. still facing some elbow pain.
DB Bench: 50x8, 80x8, 80x8, 80x6 (DBs only went up to 80 and this gym)
BB Incline Bench: 135x8, 135x8, 135x6
Squat: 135x8, 225x5, 255x5 (filmed), 225x5 (filmed), 225x5, 225x5
Tricep overhead curl supersetted with bench: 60lbx10, 15 SS x 3 sets
Incline chest press: 90lbs on each side.

1st video: 255x5. I noticed I didn't go low enough so I decided to drop the weight and do 225x5 (2nd video). I'd like some critique.. looks like my weight shifts off my heels a bit. I think depth is decent in 2nd video but probably could go lower.

Re: Charles' Log/ Advice thread

Personally I think you need to go down in weight and get much deeper in the squat. The first one was all partials and in the second one from what I saw you hit parallel once, and looked to struggle when you did (shifting weight to toes).

Your squats seemed very shaky and imbalanced, and I fear as you try and move up in weight you will either plateau or be injured.

Looks like you are pulling up off your heels, you don't necessarily want to be pushing solely from your heels but you definitely dont at to be on your toes.

That's why I dropped down from the 265. My friends who I normally squat with always tell me I'm going to parallel. Clearly you can't tell unless you see for yourself.

I'm gonna stick with 225 or so and make sure I'm going deeper.

People suck when it comes to feedback usually lol.

I went from 5 x 265 to parallel to 6 X 205 when I started going as low as possible without rounding back. It really affects your ability to push weight, but by going deep you engage the hamstrings and I find it to be much more stable and better on my knees.
