PR Killed

27 September 2015

Mid-shin pull - worked up to 515x1, then 525x1, which is a solid PR (last cycle topped out at 505, I think). Small insignificant victories, etc. etc.

High bar squat 135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 265x5, 295x3, 330 (1+) x 5 reps

Not bad after pulling first.

Hip thrust 3s x 5 - need to start hitting these again. If only they weren't such a pain to set up.

Glute-ham raise 20 total reps

Nice PR! Do you go for another in 3 weeks? Isn't it a modified 3/5/1 you're running right now?

Not for the pull. For 3/5/1, I'm alternating between high and low bar squats. Pulls are done for singles, after squats, following this program:

So lower body day 1 is high bar squats (3/5/1 template) and "heavy" pulls for singles. Lower body day 2 is low bar squats (3/5/1) and "light" pulls for singles. In the last 3 weeks of the pull cycle (when the weight gets heavy), I only do pulls once a week.

I also alternate bench and slingshot bench instead of bench and press.
