I needed a break from the usual so I did something different today. I think I really need to start varying the volume. I've been doing some reading on periodization.

Felt great to hit heavy weights again. I've never squatted that much before but this is off of a 18" box. Still happy with it though for only my second time at it in literally years.

Had to do another quick lunch workout today. Tomorrow is my gf's surgery and there will definitely be no working out then. Not sure if Thurs/Fri will happen either so we'll see.

Decided to do a higher volume week. I think I'm going to build a new workout based on periodization of volume and intensity.

Summer is just so busy and I can't seem to get a full workout week in! This week is only a 2x week with combined exercise days. Not ideal.
I've also decided to switch to a program like this:
Week 1  Hypertrophy: 3 x 610 (using 313 tempo for upper body lifts)
Week 2  Power Building: 5x5 or similar
Week 3  5 x 13
Week 4  Deload
So far I think I'm going to stick with the same mon, tues, thurs, fri setup with one day for each big lift. I think it could probably be fine tuned even more but I'll try this for now.

A week of the bare minimum lifts... not good. Also, since they were condensed all onto tues and thurs, I had one less day of rest and boy did it show. My groin was super tired from sumo deads and my front dealts were burnt from benching.
Oh well.

Feels like I should be stronger with sumo deads. Feels like I'm just overall weaker than I should be right now. Not a fun feeling.

Our new program entails 1 week of high volume, 1 week of moderate volume, 1 week of low volume/high intensity, and 1 deload week. We are doing the deload week now so we kept it easy.
