Worked up to 185x1 on incline bench then did some arm stuff. Ready for 5/3/1.

Only thing I feel I've learned from not doing 5/3/1 for a year is that my body doesn't respond to high volume, I need high intensity.

Feeling weak and angry about my squats yesterday, even though I've hit a few PR's the past two weeks.

Hate to say it but I may give up on strength training. Not because I want to but mostly because of my shoulders and hips. They felt much better with the higher rep training I was doing. I'll still incorporate the main lifts, but as the last exercise of the day. Thinking into my 30's and 40's I'd rather have a well rounded physique than a nightmare of injuries at the expense of a few heavy weights. It's a bummer but it's just not worth it.

Regardless, I'm still extremely proud of what I accomplished this time last year.

Deadlift 405x1
Squat 375x1
Press 165x1
Bench 235x1
Front Squat 275x1
DB Row 125x6

All @170. No doubt in my mind I'll beat all those lifts. I just don't know when.

I haven't stopped lifting, I'm just on a hiatus from logging.
