Today -

back squat - (switched to high bar, easier on my elbows. L knee sleeves, belt 5th notch)
3x5 w/ 225 lb

RDL - (straps, no belt, like usual)
3x5 w/ 265 lb

front rack Bulgarian squat - (knee sleeves back up)
3x6 each side w/ 65 lb

single leg deadlift -
3x5 each side w/ 135 lb (compared to the single leg RDL, these have a faster eccentric, completely letting weight rest on the ground, and then a positional retightening before lifting again, keeping hands on the bar the whole time)

hill sprints -
5 rounds. start at yellow pole, sprint to top, then immediately walk down to yellow pole, sprint up as soon as I get down there)

hip mobility
t-spine mobility
shoulder mobility

Good stuff. Enjoying the new movements and not focusing on the heavy weight. Enjoying less volume too.

Yesterday -

high bar back squat - (L knee sleeves and belt)
3x5 w/ 235 lb

RDL -
3x5 w/ 275 lb

front rack Bulgarian squat -
3x6 each w/ 75 lb

single leg deadlift -
1x5 each w/ 145 lb (felt a strange sensation throughout right lower back and right hip, then a sudden increase in mild nerve sensations. stopped these. These are awkward and hard to reset from a dead stop while maintaining good back position. Doing a single leg RDL is totally fine, but the dead stop and reset on these don't feel good for my back, despite the light load.) switch to either cable pull throughs or Bulgarian style RDL

1x3 w/ x2 70, 80, 90, 100
1x2 w/ x2 105, 110
1x1 w/ x2 110
1x6 w/ x2 115 lb PR (feels great to set an absolute weight PR in an upper body compound pushing movement - it's been a long time. I've never pressed more than the 110 lb dumb bells, and these felt really confident. Preparing for the rep, I was not feeling very confident. I almost didn't even attempt it. I did an extra warm up set with 110 just to make sure I had it in me without headphones. The extra warm up set went well, so I decided to go for it. Once I got pressing, I felt super strong. No headphones, since I recorded the PR with my phone. it's been almost exactly three years since I set an absolute weight PR in the flat DB bench press. that's largely due to training without access to heavy enough dumb bells, though)

weighted chin up -
3x5 +55 lb

1x12 +60 lb PR (BW = 194 lb)
