Entry #1066

SSB squats:
365 x 5, 5, 4
> Whew, I'm starting to feel burnt out. Back was extremely stiff.

Unilateral dumbbell press:
130 x 5, 5, 5 

Power cleans:
205 x 3, 3, 3

Unilateral dumbbell rows:
130 x 10, 10
> No floor contact. Felt incredibly light after rowing 170. 

EZ bar curls + mini bands:
25 x 12, 7
> One of my bands snapped so I couldn't finish the set. R.I.P.

And with that, I've gotten back up to my old numbers before I left this routine for 5/3/1 - except at a lighter body weight, the same dumbbell weight in both arms, and a better deadlift. All in three weeks. My shoulder has been pain-free ever since I switched and I'm able to throw hooks and uppercuts again. Lots of good things happened when I did what I knew would work for me as an individual.

I'm gonna take the next week off for a much-deserved deload and then come back to push through new barriers. 


  1. Good job bro. All about finding what works for you through trial, agreed.
