    9/3
    Bench@130 14, 9, 9
    Chinup@bw 12, 10, 9
    Curl 3 sets@65
    French press 3 sets@65
    Lateral raise 3 sets@10
    I've used a false grip on bench for the last two sessions. Got 16 reps with 125 on Thursday night so it was time to bump up the weight.
    Back from vacation. Did some kayaking on Saturday and also helped move a bunch of traditional wooden boats. Did the Macinac bridge walk on Monday. I walked about 75% of the way across and then back. Approximately 7.5 miles.
    Nutrition was not bad. I tend to undereat when on vacation so I tried to make it a point to get a decent amount of calories and protein in on each day.

    Got 16 reps on the first set of bench. Time to bump it up to 135. This progression method is slow and boring, but appears to be working.

    Hey dude :cool:

    9/15
    Squat 5x5x155
    Calf 3 sets@215
    Deadlift 5x225
    Did all the squats beltless. This is the best squatting has felt in a long time.

    Cut deadlift volume down to 1 set. My lower back has been feeling a little too beat up after deadlift now that the weight has increased slightly. Going to try a lower volume approach and keep pushing the weight for a while.

    Had some life stuff happen on Friday and did not eat or sleep much. Took Saturday off. Today was OK. I might drop frequency to 3 lifting sessions per week, although results have been good with my current route.

    I was planning to lift on the 16th but got busy getting ready for a trip. Left on the 19th and got back today. Did some hiking and push-ups. Took it easy today following off time and travel.

    10/24
    Chin 5x5xbw
    squat 5x5x135
    lateral 3x20x10
    calf 3x12x185

    Tried a slightly different set-up for my normal lifts for fun.

    Deads did not feel great. Should probably keep them after squats.
