    Not logging progress, just to say I'm away for a week of buffet breakfast and lounging haha
    Progress will dip, I'm thinking I'll step back 2 plate increments when I return

    Yeah, though, today's not gone so well:

    SQ:
    2x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 40kg
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 75kg
    5/3/5/5/4/3 @ 87.5Kg

    So, I've repeatedly failed to have time for benching on the proper bench, and having to 'make it up' with dumbbells.
    The solution, I'm actually going to plan to use dumbbells, and so I've had a wee de-load.

    BP (Dumbells):
    2x5 @ 10kg
    1x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 25kg
    4x8 @ 30kg


    ROW:
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 72.5kg
    5/5/3/3/2 @ 82.5 Kg dammit this just isn't going up is it? 2 fails, dropping to 3rep sets

    Tried to workout on friday, but with picking up the little one, swimming lessons, and Jiu-Jitsu beating the **** out of me, it didn't go great

    SQ:
    2x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 40kg
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 80kg
    5/3/5/3 @ 90Kg

    BP (Dumbells):
    2x5 @ 10kg
    1x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 25kg
    8/8/2/5 @ 35kg


    ROW:
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 72.5kg
    6x3 @ 82.5 Kg

    So, 2 fails at 90 and I'm moving the rep scheme.

    SQ:
    2x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 40kg
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 80kg
    6x3 @ 90kg

    After I got to work I realised I should be doing 8 sets of 3 reps.....to keep the total reps.....SIGH

    OHP: (I had to clean the weight to begin, Did not help)
    2x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 35kg
    8x3 @ 50kg

    DL: (all excuses today as I forgot my belt haha)
    1x5 @ 60kg
    1x5 @ 85kg
    1x5 @ 100kg
    3/5 @ 112.5kg Wasn't feeling it

    BP (Dumbells):I think this whole idea with Dumbbells needs thought out, the rep plans etc isn't working with the increments I've got)
    2x5 @ 10kg
    1x5 @ 20kg
    1x5 @ 25kg
    5/5/5/5/4/4 @ 35kg

    How come you're having to clean the weight to do OHP? Also, nice progression so far :) How is your form looking on Squats now?

    Both of these are time.

    I dunno if I've got lazy, or the weights just going up, but once I'm done warm ups and squats I'm just out of time.

    I have to do my squats at home before work, then I'll do my other 2 exercises at the work gym.

    No rack at work, nothing to hold a bar for OHP or BP
    We've got a proper bar and weights courtesy of a guy in my office who does crossfit at lunch.
    TBH i don't mind the cleaning, I think it probably gets me a far better session than just pressing :D

    With regards to Squat form, I think I'm doing much better. I can feel it more and know where I'm going wrong in places much better.
    I might do some new videos, get some evidence for the PB :p just my phone case broke and it let me stand the phone haha
