Entry #1240

Failed to deadlift 535. Couldn't even break it off the floor. This is a consistent pattern so I'm not worried in the slightest, although I still plan on doing ROM training eventually for more dependable performances in the future.

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to do anything else so on the drive home I set a challenge to myself of 100 bodyweight squats in my living room. Got it all in a straight set, amazingly, and it wasn't too hard, although I rest-paused for a few seconds on occasions.

Edit: Just did another 51.

Overhead press:
170 x 5
195 x 5
220 x 4
220 x 5
> Only got 4 the first time and, feeling a little disappointed, went to do back work when I realized I didn't even get the 5-minumum for the 5 week. Rested a bit at the expense of sufficient time for assistance exercises and had a much stronger performance for 5 reps.

One-arm lat pulldowns:
200 x 10, 10, 10

Overhead press:
167 x 10, 8
135 x 5

Extreme decline push-ups:
20, 30, 23

Inverted rows:
