    *Well this started out as my 1s day for DL but it was feeling crappy. I worked up to 505x2 and then got annoyed and switched to 18 inch DL and hit a pr. I think the heavy DLing from the floor week after week has caught up and I needed a change anyway.

    *Decent day for being sore in every upper body muscle + back. I was supposed to deload but I hate that so I backed off on the assitance work. I noticed my heels came off the ground a little on my squats in the video. I did not notice that when I squatted. Definately have to fix that.

    Nice to be able to dial in and pinpoint what could be considered loose ends.

    Fine day as usual man.

    Squats-(practice form)

    *Decent day today. My elbows were bothering me so I did more pulling than pushing. I think doing the floor presses on my log press day was a bad idea and took away from today so I have done back to doing my horizontal pressing on bench day and vertical on log day. I am trying out some new ideas this wave to keep things fresh. I was able to reach depth and put my weight on my heels and not toes when squatting today which was good even for a light weight. I think I might decide to give squatting more often a try for awhile.

    Good idea, I was thinking of doing that very same thing to at least help me get back in the groove with regular squats.

    Yeah I think we can get away with squatting more often as long as it is not heavy all the time.

    11/18/11 DL 3/5/1 3s

    230x3

    *Pretty good today. Still backing off on assistance work. Still doing 5/3/1 for log, bench, squat. Giving 3/5/1 a run on DL and probably won't do 5 reps on the 5 weeks will do singles for speed probably to give myself a break between heavy dl weeks or use a different dl variation.

    Lol yup I am on my knees and I unrack the weigh at neck level. I know a lot of strongman use Z presses but those are not comfortable to me so I got the idea to do kneeling presses to isolate the pressing muscles more. So far so good.

    *One of my finer squat days. I was able to stay tight today and most of my reps looked good with my heels staying on the ground. On 3 out of 4 reps on 410 they did come off the floor a tad but less than last week. I am getting better at getting my weight on my heels and getting my backside into it more.
