Haven't squatted in 4+ months. Had a session today and regained my love for the misery so decided to start a brief log. Currently stuck at 86kg on absolutely colossal calories, still hot sleeping, still miserable af 馃槀 roughly 15-18% I seem to hold it very well, I'm reasonably sure I'm closer to 18 than 15 but I find it very hard to judge.

Gonna have a push for at least 180+ triple by Christmas if possible. Main obstacle is multiple holidays between now and Christmas, I have made sure all the hotels have gyms so we'll see.

All squats are well past parallel, with sleeves only and 500mg test a week

Today's session was

Squat 27th July
60x5
80x3
100x3
120x3
140x3
150x3
160x2
170x1
140x7

I'm not gonna include any accessory work apart from leg press. I'd make a general log but my tendonitis is absolutely raping me so my other lifts are pretty dire

I鈥檓 assuming you鈥檙e looking to gain size and not strength when you say you鈥檙e stuck at 83kg?? If so you need to dramatically increase rep range and decrease sets. This is a powerlifting protocol not a bb.
I鈥檝e assumed incorrectly havent I? If so, I apologise and now realise that a bolognaise, wank and zopiclone number two shouldn鈥檛 have taken place at 130am.
Your presumption is partly right. Some of this is just number chasing for the fun of it.

This particular session was mainly a test to see where I'm at. I'll certainly not be carrying on with triples but will still likely be staying around the 5 rep range with the odd 20 rep finisher. I've spent the last few months doing 8-12 reps on leg press and fancy something different.

I do however swap things up as and when I feel like a change so we'll see how it goes.

Looking good mate.
Stack in the top left corner looks proper! What gym is that big boy?
I feel your pain. I did my first leg session in five months yesterday after my ham tear. Mate I can barely walk today. DOMS are unreal.
Little ghetto spot in Huddersfield called Top Bodies.

Between squatting and cycling there's never a day where my legs feel or function as normal legs.

Currently feel like a sack of shit. Haven't slept well in months now. Absolute zombie mode.

Gonna carefully time some tactical caffeine tomorrow, bang an ungodly amount of oxys and try a squat session.

Diets been out the window this week, absolutely no appetite nor motivation.

Hoping for 140/145 5*5 depending on how alive I am.

Once again feel like a sack of shyte but had a half decent session

Squat 7th
60x5,5
80x3
100x3
120x3
130x10,10,10
155x3
120x10

Dropped to cruise dose, currently not tracking calories. Sleep has improved ever so slightly but it's still incredibly hard to actually get out of bed in a morning.

Brief food poisoning last night from some seemingly dodgy crab / crayfish. Lost 4kg in water weight via both ends simultaneously so I can't see me squatting tomorrow unless I get some good food in me later today.

Turns out the food poisoning was from birthday cake I ate Sunday evening strangely. 10 people have been ill and that's the only common aspect.

Any hoo. Forced a session this evening, found it really hard to get my head into the session late on and with no caffeine, I'm used to training first thing. Considering I sh1t 4kg of water yesterday I can just about live with today's session.

Choice was force a session today or wait till Saturday.

10th August
60x3
80x5
110x3
130x3
140x7
145x5
140x5
160x2
130x5

The second rep of 160 was an absolute grind and by the 5th rep of my intended 12 reps of 130kg my head totally fuxked the session off. Finished with some extensions and ham curls
